University College London is seeking a Programme Coordinator (Health Inequalities) to work on ‘Mobilising Community Assets to Tackle Health Inequalities’, a UK Research and Innovation and Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) programme.

This programme uses local, cultural, and natural assets and activities to support improvements in health inequalities in the UK, developing projects that link and integrate such assets into healthcare systems. The programme takes an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together teams of expertise from remits across UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), and building collaboration with non-academic partners.

The team is led by Professor Helen Chatterjee at UCL, the AHRC Research Programme Director for Health Inequalities, in partnership with the National Centre for Creative Health. To date the programme has funded 12 pilot projects and 16 Consortium Building projects. Further larger scale three-year research projects will begin in February 2024; these projects are led by project teams distributed across the UK.

Role description 

  • Develop and maintain an effective project management system to ensure oversight of the portfolio of funded projects.
  • Lead on data protection on behalf of the project team, gather relevant information, data and intel from a range of partners and key stakeholders and actors.
  • Support the planning and delivery of the programme so that the overall research objectives of the programme are met. This will involve developing a clear and transparent project management system, and helping to build a wider network of partners and collaborators both academic and non-academic.
  • Support impact and dissemination including taking a lead on communications activities such as developing content for websites, social media, blogs and other outlets.
  • Collaborate with the directorate research team and support the preparation and submission of reports and presentations, and support financial oversight of the research directorate budget.
