ABOUT THE ROLE
The Advocacy and Engagement Officer will play a vital role in the success of CaSE’s new Discovery Decade project. This project aims to support the research and innovation community to connect with a broader set of public supporters, helping research investment remain a political priority in the decade ahead.

This is an opportunity to work with advocacy and engagement partners across the sector, as well as agencies delivering the audience research and creative assets. It will involve delving into new data, identifying trends, and publishing findings that shape the sector’s advocacy. We will need you to get involved in spotting new and creative ways to connect with the public, and bring these to life.
