Research and Policy Lead

Job description

The Research and Policy Lead is an exciting new role.  Research on PDA is in it’s infancy and that is a contributing factor in PDA people being amongst the most misunderstood and excluded groups in society today. We want PDA people and everyone in their lives to be better understood and supported. This new role will lead on delivering that change.

We need someone who understands the importance of high quality research and who cares about the application of that research in practice. A confident, considered networker who can bring people together to collaborate and share learning, and crucially someone who can influence audiences ranging from professionals, to families and PDA people themselves to use research to make things better.

You will need to be committed to research that centers and values autistic people’s experiences and brave enough to ensure that we follow the research as an organisation – even when it challenges our current understanding. You will be well informed, credible and inclusive and committed to making an impact in your work.

We want to be THE best workplace for PDA people and their loved ones as well as the most impactful charity in our work. This role is key in getting us there.

PDA Society understands the positive contribution a team from differing backgrounds and experiences bring to an organisation. We actively encourage applications from people with experiences not currently represented in our team. We want the recruitment process for this job to be a positive one. If there are things you need to make the process accessible to you, please let us know - we’ll do our very best to accommodate you.
