Can you present research in a clear and compelling way? Do you love using your skills to make a difference to people’s lives? Then read on…..
We are looking for an experienced researcher who is able to hit the ground running and quickly grasp our priorities for research. You’re also be enthusiastic about using your own lived experience of disability (which could include long term conditions or mental health issues) to understand the issues people are reporting.
Comfortable with both qualitative and quantitative research methods, you’ll be a self-starter who is able to design and execute targeted pieces of research and deliver at pace. You will also be an enthusiastic team player, able to build relationship both internally and externally via videolink during lockdown, and able to contribute to the development of an independent, user-led Healthwatch.
In return, you will get the opportunity to work in a unique organisation – one that delivers both for disabled people and across community services in Barnet. Healthwatch Barnet is delivered by Inclusion Barnet, a Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation. We’re an organisation that believes in the power of using lived experience in all our activities. You’ll find yourself part of a friendly and supportive team, with colleagues that genuinely care and a line manager that genuinely understands research and the importance of your role. Do you work well in a team and believe in the social model of disability? Then this could be the role you’re looking for.
The role is 24.5 hours a week. Currently it involves home working (due to COVID), but when safe to do so the successful candidate will spend some of their time working from our modern, open plan office in Barnet and Southgate College, Colindale. This is a great opportunity to work in a Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation with an enthusiastic and friendly team of colleagues.
To apply, send your CV plus a detailed covering letter explaining why you want to work for Inclusion Barnet and how you would use insights from your own lived experience of disability or a long term condition or mental health issue to inform your research. CVs without a covering letter will not be read.
