Research Analyst vacancy

Runnymede and the Centre for Labour and Social Studies are looking to hire a Research Analyst to work on a joint project between our organisations.

The role will involve using quantitative methods to explore issues of race, class and housing in London, including the issue of ‘gentrification’. This is a full time role on a one-year fixed-term contract, with the possibility of extension depending on further funding.

If you are passionate about race equality and social justice, and have the appropriate research analysis skills, you can download the full job description and learn how to apply via the Runnymede website.

Forced deportations resumed

Runnymede staff joined a demonstration against the forced deportation of 50 people to Jamaica last month.

Many of those scheduled to be on board had been in Britain from a young age, had settled status and/ or families in the UK. All would have already served sentences for their crimes.

The charter flight still went ahead, however dozens of people were pulled off last-minute on a technicality.

To understand why this form of forced deportation is unjust and what you can do to help, read this Race Matters blog written by Zita Holbourne, National Chair of BARAC UK.

Our Director Dr Omar Khan is quoted in this Guardian article on the same subject.
