Job Title: Research Officer

Working For: The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute

Location: London

Salary: £27,515 (full time)

Job Details

People with mental health problems are three times as likely to be in problem debt: we’re here to change that. Money and Mental Health is an independent research charity, committed to breaking the link between financial difficulty and mental health problems. We conduct research, develop practical policy solutions and work in partnership with both those providing services and those using them to find what really works.

We are now looking for an ambitious, enthusiastic person with a demonstrable interest in mental health or public policy to take on a research officer position. Money and Mental Health is a champion of mixed methods research, combining analysis of quantitative and qualitative data to understand the size and shape of the financial challenges facing people experiencing mental health problems and identify specific opportunities for intervention. All candidates should be comfortable with both qualitative and quantitative research, though at this time we are particularly interested in meeting candidates with a quantitative background.
