Research Ethics Committee recruitment

Last updated: 11 Feb 2019 Topics: News Type: News

We’re looking for two new Research Ethics Committee members to join our team of experienced researchers

Carrying out research with children can help us to understand what children think about the issues that are affecting them. At the NSPCC, we believe it's vital to find out whether what we do makes a difference for families and children and balance the aims of the research with the safety and wellbeing of those who take part.

Our Research Ethics Committee is made up of experienced researchers from outside the NSPCC who review research proposals, provide an impartial review of the ethical implications of evaluation and research proposals and work collaboratively with researches to address any concerns.

We’re seeking expressions of interest from experienced researchers who have:

  • expertise in community based research
  • expertise in participative research or research using new forms of technology
  • a background in child psychology or social work.
