We are seeking a highly motivated Research and Engagement Officer to facilitate a public engagement project which aims to increase awareness of sensory processing differences in autism. In this project, we will be working with autistic people to create an immersive experience to inform those who come into day-to-day contact with autistic people (e.g., hairdressers, shopkeepers) about sensory processing differences. Shops, hairdressing salons and leisure places will be transformed into sensory experiences based on descriptions of difficulties faced by autistic individuals. To do this, we will first work with autistic individuals to hear which aspects of different environments most affect them and which audiences they would most like to be informed about their sensory needs.

The post is part-time (20%), fixed term for a minimum of 20 months, starting January 2021.

The post holder will help with all stages of the project, liaising with external collaborators, autistic people and business owners. The role will involve collecting views from autistic people, conducting administrative tasks and marketing and evaluating the event.

The successful candidate will hold an undergraduate degree (2.1 or above) or equivalent qualification and will have experience of delivering public engagement or outreach activities. You will have strong organizational, communication and interpersonal skills along with the ability to work independently and as part of a team.

Closing date for applications is midday on 19th October 2020. It is anticipated that interview will be held in the week commencing 2nd November.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.
