GambleAware is recruiting for a Reserach and Impact Manager who will support the implementation of the charity's strategy, transforming research into results.

Gamble Aware is an independent charity tasked to fund research, education and treatment services to help minimise gambling-related harm in Great Britain. The strategic aim is to broaden public understanding of gambling-related harm as a public health issue, and to help those that do develop problems to get support and help that they need quickly and effectively. You will play an important role in achieving this aim, by providing the evidence needed to prevent and minimise harm from gambling.

The successful candidate will be responsible for managing a number of research projects, supporting all aspects of the research and evaluation commissioning process. Working collaboratively with the Operations Manager, you will develop research briefs to specify the need for research, as well as identifying and communicating with potential suppliers and experts, to match the requirements and needs of specific research projects. Other duties will involve providing support and input to research teams through the implementation process such as research design, literature review, data access and analysis. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to assist in the evaluation of research bids and recommendations for the awarding of funds.

To be considered for this role, it is essential to have proven research project management skills, with experience of managing or commissioning research and evaluation projects. It is essential to have knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research techniques with the ability to analyse complex information. This role will give you the opportunity to build positive relationships with a variety of key stakeholders and partners, as well as giving you autonomy to work independently and with initiative. This role is ideally suited to someone with an understanding of public health with an interest in minimising gambling related harm. A postgraduate qualification including research methods is desirable.

Full job descriptions will be provided to candidates shortlisted by Prospectus.
