Behavioural Change Developer
This is a grant assisted Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) that provides you with the excitement of working in a dynamic company with the support and guidance from Bournemouth University throughout the 18-month project. The project will focus on the development and evaluation of behaviour change tools through e-learning. Specifically, whether spacing learning with intervals and providing learning in small ‘bite-sized’ chunks has a better long-term retention period than the current one-hour long ‘massed’ learning technique. The project will require the creation of academic reports and company white papers for the current and future methods to e-learning and behaviour change. The successful candidate will research into this area of education, approach businesses for study participation, present detailed reports to companies and provide valuable, robust, academic evidence for future LiMETOOLS product development.
The KTP also provides a robust graduate development package, including a personal development budget, and two one-week residential training courses covering project management skills, leadership and management skills, and commercial awareness. In addition to the salary, the successful candidate may be eligible for a bonus subject to meeting mutually agreed deliverables and a further bonus upon successful completion of the project.
This post is available on a fixed-term basis for 18 months.
Being able to work as part of a team, the candidate will need to have a high level of skill in identifying opportunities for research and knowledge exchange; an enthusiasm for psychological behaviour change; experience of breaking down complex problems and devising practical solutions; an excellent ability to prioritise and work under pressure; a good understanding of psychological research methods; excellent communication skills; a work ethic that allows them to work in a deadline-based environment.
The candidate will have at least a 2:1 BSc(Hons) in Psychology or similar and previous experience of working in a business environment and customer facing roles.
