We are looking for a Research Communications Officer to join the team at OCSI.
The Research Communications Officer role at OCSI is a new role and is a great opportunity for anybody wanting to work in quantitative research, data journalism or data science. It offers the opportunity to combine quantitative research with external communication skills to help public sector and social organisations effectively plan, target and evaluate programmes.
Based in Brighton, we are a social research consultancy with a strong technical focus. We use our expertise in research and technology to provide tools, analysis and support for organisations working for social good. We work at the cutting-edge of data, digital and public sector – take a look at our Research Services and blog to find out more about the projects we are working on.
The successful candidate will play a key role as part of the OCSI research team. You will develop research reports, briefings and blogs for use by the OCSI team and to be published externally. There is also scope to develop analysis and data visualisations. As this will be a high profile area of public policy, you could find your work covered and/ or reused in national media.
The role will include:
We’re a small team (13 people), so there’ll be lots of opportunities for learning and skills development. As well as a training budget for all team members, we encourage you to get involved in any and all areas of the company that interest you. So alongside your core role you might find yourself working on things like user support, data processing and working with large datasets, reviewing the local data landscape and so on.
We are looking for:
Bonus skills/ experience (desirable, but not essential).
The starting salary will be £25,000-£26,000 per annum (pro rata). This is a full-time role, although we can be flexible if that is important to you. This is a permanent role, with a 6 month probationary period.
You’ll be partially working from home and partially based in our Brighton office in the vibrant North Laine cafes and pubs quarter. There may be occasional travel to London and further afield for meetings as required.
If you like the sound of all this, please send a copy of your CV and a covering letter to email@example.com . For more information or for an informal chat regarding the role, please contact Stefan Noble by email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
