The Centre for Ageing Better is an independent charitable foundation, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The Centre for Ageing Better creates change in policy and practice informed by evidence and works with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities. We believe that more people living longer represents a huge opportunity for society and we want everyone to enjoy a good later life. But changes are needed so more people are in good health, are financially secure, are socially connected, and have a sense of meaning and purpose in later life. We have set out a bold ambition to do more on all these fronts.
We are striving to create an organisation that reflects our society and the communities we serve. A workplace where everyone feels empowered and where diversity of background and thought is celebrated. We know there is more work to be done and are committed to continuing to improve our practice around Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.
We are a Positive Action employer, therefore in recruitment where two candidates are ‘as qualified as’ each other, we will favour a candidate from any group identified as currently underrepresented in our team based on protected characteristics as outlined in the Equality Act 2010.
About the role
You will be joining the team which works to gather, synthesise, and communicate the evidence we need to change policy and practice.
You will be working across a variety of projects, providing support to teams across the organisation, and across our priority goal areas. Your work will help your colleagues – and partners at different organisations – understand what evidence is out there, what it means, and what more we need to do. Evidence Officers also manage externally commissioned research projects, write blogs and more substantive research outputs, and liaise with outside partners.
You will be able to assimilate and synthesise information quickly and communicate it clearly. You don’t need a research background – you just need organisational skills and a curious and analytical mind, which you might have developed in an undergraduate degree, or further study, or through a career in a different field.
