Opportunities to work at the Inquiry

Working with us means a chance to make a real difference in supporting victims and survivors to share their experience of sexual abuse. We seek to attract the brightest new recruits to join our Inquiry. We employ staff in a wide range of jobs from Researchers to Communications experts based in London and the South East, Midlands, North West, North East, South West and Wales.

Associate roles and other direct opportunties​

All associate opportunities will be advertised on our website.​
IICSA associates are usually recruited for their specialist, sometimes scarce skills and/or knowledge and then added to the associate register. As a need arises, associates are invited to join the Inquiry on a contract basis, to work on specific projects. These contracts are frequently short term, varying from a few days to several months. Associates go through a fair and open recruitment process. Successful candidates then undergo pre-employment checks, which include taking references, and security, health and identity checks.

Civil Service Jobs

We use the Civil Service Jobs website to advertise the majority of​ our jobs. I​n order to apply for these you will need to create an account with the site. If you would like to be emailed with notice about certain types of roles within the Inquiry, you can set up job alerts through the Civil Service Jobs website.

Recruitment Complaints

The Inquiry's recruitment processes are underpinned by the Civil Service Commission's Recruitment Principles of selection for appointment to be made on the basis of fair and open competition. The IICSA Feedback and Complaints Policy applies if you have a complaint about;

  • The Inquiry's compliance with the Principles; and/or 
  • the way in which you have been treated, or the service you have received, in relation to any aspect of a recruitment campaign 

We recognise that people will be disappointed should an application for a job not be successful, but we will not normally regard an applicant disagreeing with the outcome of the recruitment campaign as grounds for considering a complaint, unless it can be shown that we have not complied with the provisions of the Principles. In the first instance, concerns should be raised with the Human Resources team at the earliest possible opportunity. You can contact Human Resources by telephone: 029 2167 4020, or email:
