The Dartington Service Design Lab – an internationally respected research charity dedicated to improving child outcomes – is seeking a passionate and like-minded Researcher to join our dynamic team. The candidate will enjoy a varied role, spanning child development and policy research, service design and public system reform.
To help deliver our vision, we are looking for a highly motivated, exceptional and well-qualified researcher (ideally with a Master’s degree in a relevant social science or a first-class undergraduate degree).
Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:
- Undertaking rapid reviews of evidence to inform service and system design;
- Assisting with data collection, synthesis, management and analysis;
- Preparing supporting materials for workshops, training and other events;
- Drafting and refining reports, presentations and other dissemination outputs (including social media activities e.g. blogs, tweets etc.)
In particular, we require a highly organised and energetic self-starter with outstanding communication skills who is capable of quickly learning new competencies and adapting to different ways of working.
The position has a good degree of flexibility: as a team we largely operate remotely across England and Scotland, using online and video communication tools. The team members tend to work from home or together in co-working spaces (or out of our Devon office). We also regularly come together a whole team in our beautiful Devon office.
