They provide multiple projects for pregnant women and families with children aged 0-3 years.

The Better Start Bradford Innovation Hub, part of Born in Bradford, leads on the evaluations of these projects to find out how best to improve the social and emotional development, communication and language development, and health and nutrition of young children.

Projects will be allocated according to the post holder’s skillset but will include data collection, descriptive statistics, qualitative fieldwork (including interviews and innovative methods such as Photo Voice) and report writing (examples of project reports can be found here: BSB Innovation Hub – Born In Bradford). The post holder may also support data collection and analysis within the innovative interventional birth cohort Born in Bradford’s Better Start

You will have knowledge of applied health research with experience in qualitative and/or quantitative research methods and analysis.
