Human Behaviour Change Officer

The role of Human Behaviour Change Officer at Dogs Trust offers an exciting opportunity to apply specialist knowledge and skills for one of the UK’s leading charities.

In this role, you will apply human behaviour change methods in the designing and development of a portfolio of projects and interventions for use in the community operational teams and across Dogs Trust. This will include applying human behaviour change frameworks and models into practice, including the translation of behavioural insights and systems thinking and overseeing audience segmentation research, the application of models and journey mapping. You will also be responsible for providing advice and guidance to colleagues in Dogs Trust’s new Intervention Development (ID) team and across the charity to ensure that projects comply with the HBC Team’s project framework. You will also actively develop your own skills in HBC methodologies and apply the latest science and thinking in the field of human behaviour change to intervention design.

As an experienced and ideally qualified human behaviour change practitioner, you have translated theory into practice when managing projects from conception to completion. You have applied behavioural insights for the purpose of audience segmentation and/or journey mapping and have applied a range of human behaviour change models in your practice. Your experience means that you understand the practicalities of working in a charity setting, and your excellent communication skills and natural ability to develop good working relations with colleagues means that you are the ideal candidate to work in this emerging team and department. You are organised, highly professional and have experience of working in teams and lone working. Not only do you take your professional development seriously, but you are driven by a desire to change human behaviour to improve the lives of dogs and people in the UK and abroad.

At Dogs Trust we value diversity and we're committed to creating an inclusive culture. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, abilities and cultures and believe that a diverse workforce will help us to achieve our mission.
