PGR Placement Opportunity with Leeds City Council

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Postgraduate Researcher (PGR) to work with the Leeds City Council’s Financial Inclusion team.

The proposed project is an opportunity to work with policymakers at Leeds City Council who are aiming to develop a longer term approach to the Healthy Holidays Programme, achieving this by strengthening their evidence base.

Healthy Holidays is an initiative designed to tackle the issue of food insecurity, and ensure children and low-income families are able to access a healthy meal and fun activities during the school holidays. The Council has provided support and funding to the Healthy Holiday programmes since 2018 and has recognised the importance of this work at a cross-directorate level. This work has also brought together support from the third sector and private sector and is an example of how the city is coming together to tackle food insecurity and support families out of poverty. 

The placement is part time and the number of working hours per week can be flexible, the start date is as soon as possible and the duration is 12 weeks.
