A fantastic mental health charity seeks a Research Engagement Coordinator on a 6month FTC (potential to extend).

This fixed-term role will help to explore innovative solutions to increase public engagement, primarily through supporting the delivery of their exciting new digital research participation product. 

The tool - which is already in development- is aiming to bridge the gap between researchers and those looking to participate or shape mental health studies and they're now looking for a dynamic, driven and science-minded individual to help successfully launch the product in November and communicate the transformative potential of research.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Building and developing strong relationships with research institutions, individual researchers and other organisations
  • Producing materials for a variety of platforms (social media, newsletters/emails, blogs) that demonstrates the value of public engagement
  • Coordinate public/lived experience feedback and steering, including via surveys and advisory groups where appropriate
  • Producing compelling copy that translates complex jargon into communications that inspire people to get involved in mental health research.
  • Supporting the Head of Digital in migrating content from the existing site, to the new platform
  • Leading on the administration of the research participation platform, including vetting and approving studies for publishing 

This role will suit someone who already has an understanding of science/research, and perhaps even worked in a research institution.
