RESEARCH ADVISER Advocacy & Campaign
1 position, based in Jakarta
Code : RA-AC

The Research Adviser will play a role in building research and policy content for Save the Children’s next global campaign through the Exclusion Mapping Project. This project is being piloted by Save the Children Tanzania, Save the Children Indonesia and with support from Save the Children UK. This project will pilot a diagnostic toolkit to identify which children are excluded and the drivers behind their exclusion. This project will demonstrate how excluded children can be identified and their financial and discriminatory barriers more systematically understood. The project will be designed in consultation with national statistics authorities, local academics and other organizations working on exclusion and data to engage their expertise as well as build longer-term relationships with these actors in support of other activities connected to the campaign.

Priorities for this role will include understanding the links between group-based inequalities and development, using available quantitative data to map exclusion across Indonesia, identifying information gaps on particular groups of children and particular drivers of exclusion, and helping to design a mixed methods tool to fill those information gaps and to design advocacy outputs aimed at highlighting who are the excluded children in Indonesia, what are the drivers of their exclusion, and how policies and programmes can be better designed to address their particular needs. The role will require leading on research in exclusion, quantitative and qualitative research design and analysis, and producing briefings and publications that bring together relevant strands of our this work.
