tide – together in dementia every day is the UK wide involvement network for carers and former carers of people living with dementia. The overall aim of the tide carer network is to improve their experiences as unpaid carers as well as the services available to those they care for.

They are currently looking for a Research Project Manager.

Tailoring Carers’ Assessments to the needs of carers of people with dementia is a research project funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and managed by the University of Manchester. This post will contribute to the initial phase of the research and focus on:

  1. An initial involvement exercise with carers and former carers to scope the research idea – what will it include, what are the questions to be answered, what are the best methods of enquiry to ensure maximum participation?
  2. Delivery of modules on ‘Taking part in research’ and ‘Getting your point across’ from our Carers Development Programme; these can take place face to face if the circumstances allow, or via zoom
  3. Workshops to develop specific topics
  4. Assistance with recruiting carers and former carers to participate in the research and to join the research advisory group
  5. Focus groups to explore specific research questions.

This research will form the substantive aspect of this post. There will also be a requirement to support smaller research projects as and when required.

The post-holder will have an understanding of how the health and social care sectors work in respect of the care of people with dementia and be familiar with the application of academic research to professional practice. They will be skilled in working with unpaid carers as equal partners and adept at networking with a range of external partners. They will have excellent communication and co-ordination skills.

The post holder will be expected to undertake a broad range of responsibilities and duties in the delivery of the project including working with carers, working with partners and project development.
