About the job

Behavioural Insights Adviser

Job ID: 028086

Salary: £32,676 – £37,297 per annum, including London Weighting Allowance

Business unit: Students & Education

Department: What Works

Waterloo Campus 

The King’s community is dedicated to the service of society. King’s Strategic Vision 2029 sets out our vision for the future, shaped around five priority areas: educate to inspire and improve; research to inform and innovate; serve to shape and transform; a civic university at the heart of London; and an international community that services the world. Our ambitious Education Strategy sets out the actions that we must take to transform how we teach, how and where our students learn and how we support them during their time with us.

We are the What Works team. We believe that a young person, no matter what their background, should be able to have high expectations for their future and equal access to education and career opportunities. We run a wide variety of programmes that aim to empower young people from under-represented backgrounds to access and succeed at degree-level study.  

We are part of the wider Students & Education Directorate, a collection of wide-ranging professional services in place to support King’s students and their education. As a directorate we manage the student lifecycle from application to graduation and beyond, to ensure a coherent and seamless student experience and effective administrative processes, working closely with King’s faculties to do so.

About the role

The Behavioural Insights Adviser will support our mission of building an evidence base to improve social mobility. A core area of activity will be how we can tailor policies, activity and communication using an understanding of student’s common habits, preferences and perceptions to make the best choice for them. The Behavioural Insights Adviser will contribute to the design and delivery of primary research projects on areas such as bridging attainment gaps, and encouraging widening participation, including developing and testing new interventions to influence behaviour and help students overcome barriers to success. 

This is an exciting opportunity for people looking to use research to understand behaviour and who wish to utilise their skills and expertise in research methods and behavioural insights. And a chance to grow your skills in positively influencing behaviours to better support our student community.

We encourage applications from candidates who have experience from both within and outside of the Higher Education sector where they can demonstrate the skills needed to succeed in this role. 

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.

This is a full-time post, but we welcome applications from candidates seeking a flexible work pattern.
