We bring together healthcare staff, patients, policymakers, and academics to provide clarity on what works in improving healthcare, what doesn't and why.
The Senior Research Engagement and Involvement Manager will provide specialist expertise and leadership on all aspects of research engagement and involvement. You will help us to address the real concerns of patients and healthcare staff by bringing people together to understand problems, create shared visions, co-design solutions, and evaluate them.
You will work closely with THIS Institute's research team and a network of external collaborators to design and deliver creative, accessible, and respectful research engagement and involvement activities. You will play a lead role in embedding equity, diversity, and inclusion best practices into our communications, engagement, and involvement activities. And you will manage a small team responsible for delivering the institute's events programme and arts-based engagement activities.
We are looking for a strategic thinker who can grasp complex academic ideas and communicate effectively. You will have experience and knowledge of research engagement and involvement policies, practices, and evaluation methodologies.
