Researcher Writers will join our growing team, trained to apply our ratings system to the companies behind the brands in our product guides. After inputting the research into our database, they will also write the articles which accompany each score table output. The contract is initially for 12 months, but we do hope to move to a permanent contract. All permanent staff become co-op members, and share the varied responsibilities of running the co-operative. Remote working is possible, with a preference for applicants based in the North West of England.

Ethical Consumer Research Association (ECRA) is the UK’s longest running alternative consumer organisation. It was founded in Manchester in 1988 as a not-for-profit workers’ co-operative to provide ‘information on the companies behind the brand names’ and to promote the ethical use of consumer power.

The organisation became a multi-stakeholder co-operative with both worker members and investor members in 2009. Both classes of member are involved in decision-making and the election of Directors onto the Board.
