Job description

This exciting new role is a unique opportunity to make your mark in research contributing to the prevention of child sexual abuse and exploitation.

The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is the only UK-wide child protection charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse.  It also runs the Stop It Now! UK and Ireland Helpline, the largest child sexual abuse prevention helpline in the world.  This post reflects our commitment to growing the evidence base about the protection of children from harm both in the UK and internationally.  The post will focus on research, publication, knowledge exchange and linkage of emerging evidence to ongoing service improvement and redesign.

You will have a high level of expertise in analysing data for impact evaluation within the human services or child protection field.  You will have a post graduate qualification relevant to our field of work and already published research that has influenced policy and / or practice.  You will be an energetic professional, proactive and outcome focused with exceptional communication and relationship skills and with a finger on the pulse of latest research relevant to our area of practice.  A great team player, you will strive for excellence in everything that you do.

You will undertake as well as co-ordinate all aspects of research and evaluation within the Foundation, including that undertaken in collaboration with other organisations and academics.  You will support colleagues in research activities; conduct and oversee literature reviews; lead on the design and development of data collection tools; engage with a range of beneficiaries including perpetrators of child sexual abuse as well as survivors of sexual harm; undertake qualitative and quantitative data collection, analysis and write up for publication in high quality journals; develop external networks to foster research collaborations; inform the development of research objectives/proposals and identify potential sources of funding.

The post is likely to be based at either our Bromsgrove, Epsom or Edinburgh office and is full time.  However we would welcome conversations from candidates who are looking for flexibility in working in relation to any aspects of the post.  We will also consider a secondment.
