Full time | Salary range: £35-40k
The final deadline to apply is Monday 26th July at 9am BST. We’re assessing applications as they come in because we’d like someone to join us as soon as possible, so please don’t wait.
We’re passionate about translating evidence about what works into bitesize content that ends up straight in the hands of people who can use it. We care about helping groups of changemakers harness their collective knowledge and share it with the world in tangible, exciting ways. We use design, strategy and behavioural science to translate group thinking into social impact initiatives. If you are reading this, we hope you are too!
We are looking for someone who can help us:
Turn chunky intellectual research into bitesize content that people use to effect positive change in the world
Test and measure how content is reaching and impacting different people: what's working for who, how and why
Grow networks of knowledge champions who are collating evidence into tangible outputs for public good
Today you might be creating and testing content with different audiences, using data to determine what works, or using creative content to change hearts and minds. We are interested in hearing from candidates from all sectors who want to translate this experience and your passion into positive impact.
You'll be joining a multi-disciplinary team made up of psychologists, strategists, designers, conveners, creative thinkers and tech optimists and we’re excited about the new skills that you’ll be bringing to the table.
🐙 Why this role matters to us at Brink
We believe that when we intentionally bring diverse people, data and knowledge together in response to a shared goal, they can accelerate positive change in the world. However too often, we see that evidence and knowledge is contained within an elite group, inaccessible to those on the ground. We think that one of the ways we can change this is through growing knowledge networks based around people, not the other way around. Right now we’re:
Supporting business leaders to apply the best evidence on health and wellbeing in their workplaces
Connecting social entrepreneurs working in conflict zones
Convening world class experts to make Oxygen Concentrators that are fit for use in low resource settings
Building a knowledge network around learning through play
Connecting EdTech social entrepreneurs to share evidence, wisdom and leverage their collective voice for change
Holding 11 African city mayors as a cohort as they embark on the journey of social change with their communities
Now, we are looking ahead to new projects and what's possible within our existing work. We are excited to welcome a team member to bring new skills, interests and experience.

An ability to use data to increase engagement: comfortable using a mix of creativity and strong analytical skills to understand behavior, identify opportunities to drive an increase in network growth, and improve user experience
Natural dot connector: embraces ambiguity and is a natural at joining the dots between users, audiences and opportunities
Love for measuring behaviour change: you hold closely the importance of impact measurement and enjoy finding the right metrics to measure where the right information delivered in the right ways has prompted positive behaviours
A knack for knowing where to dig: is familiar with the best online tools and ways to go find, test and share the most effective ones for the task at hand
Plenty of collaboration skills: comfortable working in multidisciplinary teams, seeing opportunities to forte on their unique experience and expertise but also adapt to different methodologies
Get up and go: doesn’t need permission to get stuck in and lead where they can see something should be done
Interpersonal skills (being a ‘Brinkster’):
Growth mindset: keen and eager to experiment and learn, comfortable with not knowing all the answers yet, and happy to let stuff go when it doesn’t quite hit the mark
Is ‘interoperable’: quickly establishes rapport with all kinds of people
Enjoys ‘making others shine': Brink is a low-ego zone that thrives on making our colleagues, clients and collaborators shine

How would you go about turning this evidence into content for different audiences within the foundation to apply to their work, and how would you measure success? 🌳
