ILC-UK are seeking a consultant researcher with a strong research background in health policy or the behavioural psychology of health and excellent writing skills. The consultant will be working on a project analysing the way in which people of different ages access information across the European Union, with a particular focus on four European countries.

The consultant will be expected to produce an evidence review of publishable standard, examining existing quantitative and qualitative literature on the subject of health seeking behaviour, with particular regard to reliability and trust of formal and informal health information providers. We would anticipate the review to be approximately 40 pages.

Consultants would be expected to start within the next two weeks and be able to work at home, using their own facilities. The work would be expected to take in the region of 4 weeks, although this is subject to discussion. There is also the possibility of additional work on the project including a policy-review and quantitative and qualitative research.

Interested applicants are invited to contact with a cv, cover letter (briefly stating relevant experience) and a sample of writing. Applicants should also state in their cover letter an estimated day rate.
