Job Description

CogCo is looking to appoint a Junior Associate Behavioural Scientist.

In this role, you would be expected to support the work we undertake with a range of partners, working with a more senior colleague who will manage the overall project.

You will play an important role in projects as part of a multidisciplinary team, which will include behavioural scientists, designers and data scientists.

You will have a good knowledge of the behavioural science literature, and an interest in how to practically apply insights to business challenges. The successful candidate will likely have completed an undergraduate degree in a relevant field.

Some examples of work you might be asked to support include:

  • Conduct literature reviews for partner projects by reviewing the behavioural science literature and identifying key themes and insights.

  • Conduct experiment and survey work by contributing design ideas, learning to code the experiment or survey and helping to communicate the findings. 

  • Support behavioural audits of products, apps and platforms by assessing features and making recommendations based on the behavioural science literature.

  • Support projects by helping to generate new behaviourally-informed solutions; participating in internal meetings and conversations; and meeting project timelines and budgets.

  • 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.

  • Contribute to 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 a relevant field (e.g. behavioural science, psychology, economics), or equivalent experience in a recent role.

  • Experience of working as part of a team, including delivering work to tight deadlines on projects.

  • Good project management skills

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

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