Lumos is an international non-governmental, non-profit organisation founded by J.K. Rowling. Our vision is of a world where all children have the opportunity to grow up and thrive in loving, nurturing, protective families. We believe that children belong in families not orphanages and we aim to achieve our vision by 2050. We do this by casting light onto the causes of institutionalisation and producing high-quality, compelling evidence of our long term, sustainable solutions.

Leading the newly established Data, Outcomes & Economics function within the Lumos Evidence Unit, you’ll play a crucial role in building our research capability, pioneering the use of data science, building new data systems, designing rigorous outcomes research and capturing economic evidence for change. Sharing findings with a range of specialist and non-specialist audiences and in a range of formats will be a core part of your role to demonstrate the impact of our vision.

Whether your background is in international development, government research, academia or the commercial world, you will bring an unwavering commitment to child rights and significant applied research experience. Technical expertise in data science and economics is crucial, along with the ability and pragmatism to adapt and apply rigorous scientific methods to diverse systems, contexts and populations. We are looking for advanced quant skills, including multivariable modelling, and a highly developed capability in economic evaluation and financial analysis. A postgraduate degree or equivalent applied training in a relevant discipline is essential.

To enable us to make safer recruitment decisions we use the Disclosure & Barring Service to vet candidates as part of our selection process.
