We're recruiting a Part-time Public Engagement Development Officer

The British Sociological Association (BSA) is the national subject association for sociologists in Britain. Our charitable aim is educational: to promote sociology. The trustees wish to recruit someone with a first or higher degree or equivalent in sociology and postgraduate experience in knowledge exchange or research to provide skilled support to help develop the Association’s Public Engagement activities.

The appointment will be for 18 months in the first instance and the person appointed will play a key role in facilitating:

  • a new BSA Sociology Youth Assembly, the first Assembly to be part of the BSA Annual Conference in 2018
  • Knowledge sharing activities for BSA members based on the Research Excellence Framework
  • Activities to communicate the positive impact of the research findings of sociologists to Government

This post offers an interesting career opportunity for a sociologist looking to establish connections and gain invaluable insight into public engagement, as well external frameworks within which the discipline of sociology and its national subject association find themselves.

*This post could be based at the BSA office or partly working from home and will involve visits to the BSA office and other venues.

Applications should be sent via email to Kerry Collins by no later than midday Friday, 17 February 2017.
