The interns will be key members of the project team and will be required to co-ordinate the administrative and project support for the CREDiBLE project. They will work closely and effectively with all other members of the team including academic colleagues and community members contributing to the project and maintain effective relationships with others.
Managerial support will be provided to the interns throughout their 16-week placement via weekly team meetings and fortnightly one-to-one supervision sessions. There will be additional ad hoc support from other colleagues in the Public Engagement Team where needed and time will be allocated within the internship to explore opportunities for employability and / or study after the 16-week placement ends.
CREDiBLE is the Community-Researcher Experimental Design in Birmingham Local Engagement project. This project aims to evidence the value of public engagement in health-related research by supporting community groups to co-produce ways of engaging public, non-expert audiences with the research subject and findings.
The intern will arrange all elements of group trips to venues representing good practice in engaging the public with research, arranging regular meetings and workshop sessions with community groups and liaising with creative partners. These experiences will support community members to develop their own ideas for public engagement with health-related research as part of the CREDiBLE project.
