Job Description

CogCo is looking to appoint a Senior Associate Behavioural Scientist.

In this role, you would be expected to support the work we undertake with a range of different companies, and will help to manage specific projects with a behavioural science focus.  

You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, which will include behavioural scientists, data scientists and designers. 

You will have an excellent knowledge of the behavioural science literature, and how its insights can be practically applied. In addition, you will have good experience running projects for organisations working to tight deadlines.  

Some examples of work you might be asked to support include (noting that we do all of our work as part of a multi-disciplinary team working together):

  • Lead behavioural science projects, by identifying the core objectives and using the CogCo frameworks to help generate new solutions 

  • Lead the relationship between CogCo and a partner company, including communications, resourcing, timelines and budget. 

  • Oversee the execution of experiments and survey work in partnership with our in-house team of experts, which will likely include confirming the final design, project management, and write-up of the results.

  • Managing a more junior member of the CogCo team, including by using our in-house performance development system to support their learning and growth.

  • Write proposals for new projects with prospective partners, including by inputting into how we scope and cost the new proposal. 

  • Write-up and visualise the results and findings from projects and experiments in a clear and succinct way through charts, written reports and slide decks.

  • Identify and lead a strand of work as part of our ongoing programme of identifying new ways in which CogCo can improve its internal ways of working (existing examples include the way we give and receive feedback; how we use rewards; and how we do performance development). 

All candidates must be able to demonstrate the following:

  • An academic background in behavioural science or a related field (e.g. economics or psychology), or experience in applying behavioural science in a recent role. 

  • Strong project management skills which you will likely have gained in a recent role (e.g. overseeing the resourcing and implementation of several projects simultaneously). 

  • Experience in overseeing the running of experiments

  • Experience managing people in projects you are running 

  • Good grounding in statistics (there will be other people in the team who have advanced stats skills with whom you will work)

  • Experience of working as part of a multidisciplinary team, including delivering work to tight deadlines for a client

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and ability to present complex ideas to a non-specialist audience.

  • Ability to independently deliver high quality work to a tight deadline, feeding into the wider work being undertaken as part of a team
