Jack Rendall

Researcher
Glasgow Caledonian University
Jack joined the Yunus Centre in 2015. His research interests include: Work Integration Social Enterprise, job quality, and social justice more broadly.

Jack’s PhD research concerned the role of Scottish work integration social enterprises in the health and well-being of individuals disadvantaged in the labour market. Jack employed a Q Methodology approach to gather shared perspectives about job quality amongst those experiencing disadvantages and he tied this together with how WISEs negotiate aspects of job quality. Prior to joining the Yunus Centre Jack achieved a BSc in Sport and Active Lifestyles Promotion and an MSc in Social Business and Microfinance, both from GCU. At the beginning of 2019, Jack started working as a Research Associate at the Centre for Work, People and Organisational Practice at Nottingham Trent University before returning to work at GCU in mid-2020.

On arriving back at GCU, Jack worked on a piece of rapid research on the Mutual Aid response to the COVID-19 pandemic, sponsored by the Chief Scientists Office. He is now working as part of the FinWell-Covid Team in the Yunus Centre, with a focus on the Q Methodology study aimed at exploring shared perspectives towards the COVID-19 pandemic.
