We involve people with lived experience, family and unpaid carers and social care professionals in a wide range of activities.

The Involvement Manager will:

We are looking for an individual who has:

  • Understanding and lived experience of using, or supporting individuals using, adult social care services;
  • Experience of being involved in a co-production process or working collaboratively with people with lived experience;
  • Experience of public involvement in a research or policy advisory group(s), ideally in a leadership, management or oversight role;
  • The ability to share diverse experiences from people with lived experience through their interactions and networks in addition to their own personal experiences;
  • Experience of supporting researchers and/or public advisors with involvement in research activities and problem solving; and
  • The ability to listen to others and express own views in a constructive way.

We are able to offer flexible working arrangements (such as working from home) and flexible working hours. We are happy to consider a job share arrangement for this position (for example two individuals working one day a week each and carrying out the role together).
