Closing date: Sunday 15th December at 23:59 GMT

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is the organisation through which the Mayor of London exercises his role as the Police and Crime Commissioner for London and is led by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime. MOPAC undertakes a broad range of statutory duties and works closely with the Mayor of London, Deputy Mayor and Metropolitan Police Service to deliver the priorities that will create safer London communities.

We are seeking a Research Analyst to work within the Evidence & Insight team. This is the dedicated in-house analytics team consisting of social researchers and analysts conducting a wide variety of research into crime, criminal justice and policing for London. This includes pan London surveys (such as the London Public Attitude Survey), evaluations, analysis of crime and other approaches. For more information see our website

We are a dedicated, professional, highly skilled workforce and are committed to equality and diversity.

The role holder will predominantly work on the pan London surveys conducted by MOPAC, although there will be the opportunity to work across other analytics. In this way, survey research and analysis is essential and the role holders will be expected to have awareness of different research methodologies and experience in quantitative and qualitative analysis.


The role involves working with large data sets, survey design and analysis, the use of SPSS and working closely with policy colleagues in MOPAC, as well as key stakeholders from the Metropolitan Police Service and other partner agencies.

In depth knowledge of policing and crime and levers available to drive performance improvement in a policing and wider public service context would be a significant advantage, as would experience of presenting complex information to senior stakeholders through written reports.
