Location: You can live anywhere in England or Wales and work at home if that suits you best. Some travel to Scope offices and services or site visits for agencies will be expected but you definitely do not have to live in London.

Scope is a disability equality charity in England and Wales. Together we are Disability Gamechangers. We work to create a society where all disabled people enjoy equality and fairness. We campaign tirelessly for everyday equality for disabled people.

As a Lead Researcher, you will be at the centre of Scope’s major research project Our Lives Our Journey (OLOJ), a ground-breaking qualitative longitudinal study which involves qualitative in-depth interviews with 80 people over five years. The findings from this project will support the development of our policy, campaigns and services helping to ensure Scope is an evidence-led organisation, improving our offering to disabled people and their families, whilst delivering social change. The project is currently in its second wave, and interviews are ongoing.

The Role

This role will include supporting research more widely across a broad range of projects conducted by the research team at Scope – from our latest work on the experiences and impact of attitudes for disabled people, through to the Cost of Living crisis and our ground-breaking Disability Price Tag analysis, unpicking the financial impact of the extra cost of disability. This role is an ideal point for anyone wishing to progress their research career within a sector-leading charity and will provide exposure and development opportunities across a range of areas.

About You

The ideal candidate will have experience of conducting qualitative interviews, coding and analysis (utilising coding software, such as NVivo or Dedoose) report writing, and publishing/dissemination. You will be responsible for at least one (of four) cohorts within the OLOJ project, taking ownership of everything from data collection to presenting findings to internal and external stakeholders. The role, whilst supported by a small team of four, requires you to work with a high degree of pro-activity and independence.

Key responsibilities:

  • Conduct qualitative research methods (such as in-depth, semi-structured interviews and focus groups).
  •  Deliver robust qualitative analysis of research data (such as, c. 40 transcripts from Scope’s Our lives, our journey study).
  •  Write findings in an engaging and understandable report (an example entitled ‘Starting a new job’ available on Scope website).
  • Clearly disseminate findings to internal colleagues and teams.
  • Launch and publish report to maximise the study’s reach and use.
  • Support with other research methods, such as survey design and quantitative datasets.

Our values are being pioneering, courageous, connected, open and fair

By living our values and trusting each other, we give our colleagues freedom and space to be creative, push boundaries and change minds.

Just let us know in your application that you are applying under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme.

Equality, diversity and inclusion
