The post-holder will primarily be responsible for recruiting women (ex)partners (domestic abuse victim/survivors) and following up with questionnaire completion, although you may also be involved in assessing and recruiting male participants, and in collecting their follow-up data.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable IT, communication, organisational, and collaborative working skills. The post will be Bristol based, but the post-holder will also need to be willing and able to travel, particularly to the four trial sites (in Bristol, Wiltshire, Somerset, Wales) where necessary for recruitment and for team meetings.
