The Work Futures Research Centre (WFRC) is an interdisciplinary research and consultancy hub which draws on experts from across the University of Southampton.

Through our network of internationally recognized researchers, we tackle some of the most pressing challenges facing the world of work, both paid and unpaid, from digital labour to social care, work organizations across the private, public and third sectors and employees whether on salaries, contracts or unemployed. We are interested in diversity within labour markets, whether through gender, race and ethnicity, social class, educational background, age, sexual orientation or geographical location.

We have published widely in academic and policy and practice formats. Our expertise covers both the UK and international labour markets, and we specialize in developing innovative ways to understand and solve problems and provide strategic and tactical intelligence to our partners.
