As a Research Officer you will be responsible for ensuring that the Arts Council understands, and can report on, the impact of its investment to ensure that we are using our funds wisely. Through the collection and analysis of data, the Research Officer is able to provide information that helps us to assess how effective we are being in meeting our objectives. The information is also used to provide a wider understanding of the impact of Arts Council funding, and of the activities that it supports.
We are looking for candidates that have a degree in a relevant discipline, including statistics and research methods and/or have significant professional experience within the research and evaluation field. You will have a comprehensive knowledge of research and evaluation methods, be highly numerate with good analytical skills, have an understanding of public policy making and project management.
A particular function of the Research Officer role is to manage the survey of revenue funded organisations. You will need to be familiar with research software and database technologies, have high level Excel skills, knowledge of GIS and be a confident report writer.
We’re particularly interested in staff who have the ability to work imaginatively and flexibly to tackle the challenges that they’ll face – staff who have the initiative and drive to thrive in a busy work environment managing multiple projects.
We work in both English and Welsh and fluency in Welsh (both written and spoken) is desirable but not essential for this post.
Part time – 24.4 hours per week
£15,947 - £21,376 (£24,182 - £32,415 per annum based on full time hours)
This is a permanent role
