Job description

Sands is the leading stillbirth and neonatal death charity and exists to reduce the number of babies dying and to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, before, during or shortly after birth.

We are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic Research Officer to join our Research and Prevention team.

We still do not fully understand why many babies die, or what more can be done to prevent deaths. For as many as one in four babies the cause of death is still not known. Sands is committed to supporting research so that we can save babies lives by improving maternity and neonatal care, understand why babies die, and provide better bereavement care and support.

This could be by providing direct support to studies, ensuring that the views of bereaved parents and families inform the development of research projects, and by helping researchers to demonstrate impact.

You will have relevant experience of communicating complex scientific information to a range of audiences, including the general public. Experience of using social media for sharing resources and research findings is also essential, as is the ability to write and express complex issues clearly and simply. With a working knowledge of research methods, you will also have an understanding of the issues around involving patients in research.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to build effective working relationships with colleagues, researchers, professional partners, bereaved parents and target public audiences. With a highly organised approach, you will be able to demonstrate an enthusiasm for continued learning and a willingness to adapt to changing circumstances.
