Job description

The role of Action Researcher provides an exciting opportunity to draw on participatory and theological action research methodology in order to enable faith based reflection on missional trends and topics relevant to the overall mission of The Salvation Army across the UK and Ireland.

The post holder is a key member of the Research & Development unit, which seeks to inform, inspire and enable transformational front-line mission, and, in the process, generate knowledge and learning that can be shared to improve mission development.

This role within the Research & Development Unit is key for informing our mission development agendas, including church planting, from an action research perspective. This will involve:

  • Working on a wide range of research projects, assisting on the design, data collection, analysis and reporting of recommendations informed by both quantitative and qualitative methods;
  • Working alongside front line practitioners to facilitate reflective practice and engagement with local stakeholders;
  • Representing the organisation with external agencies to inform research priorities.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a personal commitment to Christ and to the worship and spiritual life of a local church with experience or an interest in the field of church, social and community work. You will have a good understanding of faith-based facilitation, participatory and theological research methods. You will have experience of both qualitative and quantitative research methods, as well as the ability to conduct research with minimal supervision, including with vulnerable people, with experience of conducting interviews by telephone and/or face-to-face.

This role has an occupational requirement that the successful candidate must be a committed and practising Christian and will be in sympathy with the doctrines of, and supportive of, the purposes and the aims and objectives of The Salvation Army.

Benefits: 25 days annual leave + bank holidays (Pro rata for part-time); a contributory pension scheme; season ticket loan; an employee assistance programme

Appointment subject to satisfactory references and proof of right to work in the UK
