Do you have experience of working in policy or research? Are you passionate about using your knowledge of social care to improve the lives of older people? Join our team!
R&RA are looking for a Policy and Research Officer. This is a new role, as we seek to increase our capacity to undertake policy work and to ensure our wider work is underpinned by sound research. The role has two elements:
You would be at the heart of R&RA’s policy and research work. You would report directly to the director and work alongside colleagues who are experts in their field, with opportunities for co-learning. You would work closely with this team to support our wider work through research and ensure our policy work aligns with our helpline service, campaigns and projects. You would join a small, dedicated, friendly team at an exciting period of change for the organisation as we undertake a programme of transformation (including reviewing our brand and creating a new website).
The ideal candidate will be a positive, can-do person, with a passion for championing the rights of older people needing care, and an enthusiasm for using your policy and research skills to affect change. This is a part-time role, for one year.
