The award, which began in September 2015, supports an ambitious programme of inter-disciplinary research and public engagement into the history and meanings of ‘emotional health’.

As Engagement and Impact Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring the successful planning, delivery, and implementation of the engagement work of the project, working closely with the Principal Investigator, the Project Manager, and the project team. You will plan and implement initiatives promoting historically informed visions of emotional health to a range of professional and public audiences. This will include devising and delivering methods for the collection of evidence of impact for the purposes of REF impact case studies, including working with the team on the launch of a new website, a series of podcasts, and an exhibition on the theme of nursing and emotions.

You will hold an undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline and will have experience of organising events, and of supporting and evaluating public engagement activities in the arts, sciences, or both. As a skilled communicator, you will be able to respond to emails in a clear, professional and prompt manner.
