Vacancy: Research Officer

We are looking for a Research Officer to join the team. The role involves playing a key part in every stage of our research process. That includes feeding into our planning, carrying out literature reviews, writing survey questions, facilitating focus groups, analysing data, sharing emerging findings with the rest of the team, developing policy ideas, drafting reports and presenting the results publicly.

While you don’t need to have experience of all those tasks, the ideal candidate will have great research skills to diagnose a problem and the ability to dig into the issue to come up with the best policy response. How we communicate those findings and recommendations is also vital, so we’re looking for someone who writes clearly and compellingly.

Salary: £29,500 FTE

Location: This role will be London-based, meaning the successful candidate will be expected to work from Money and Mental Health’s central London office for at least two days each week.

Hours: 5 days a week. The charity has a flexible working policy with core hours of 10am – 3pm and remaining contracted hours distributed throughout the week flexibly.

Closing date: 4th July, 9.00am.

We are committed to remove unconscious bias as much as possible from our recruitment process. We therefore use a platform called Applied which allows us to blind review applications without seeing details such as names and education details. You will be asked to write short answers to a few questions, specifically designed to test the skills we are looking for in the person specification. Your answers will be anonymised (all identifying information will be removed) and randomised. You can read more about the principles behind the blind review process here.

As part of the application process, you will still need to provide a CV but this will only be considered if you score well enough on the blind review. Please include details of two referees in your CV (we will only contact them if you are offered the position)

If you require any reasonable adjustments to be able to access any part of this process please do let us know by emailing contact@moneyandmentalhealth.org.
