Job Type
£28,000 - £34,000 per annum, depending on skills and experience.

The University of Nottingham is inviting applications for a Behavioural Psychologist to join our exciting collaboration with Together Agency Limited. Based at Together in Nottingham City Centre, you will have the unique opportunity to take a central role in the delivery of a project to develop methodologies that will provide behavioural psychology and storytelling insights into the development of Together’s services and agency reputation.

As an ambitious individual, this is an exciting opportunity for you to carry out a high-profile Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project and immerse yourself in a dynamic and high-performing creative marketing agency. A key aspect of your role will be to transfer the latest science-based research in behavioural psychology to identify, implement and embed new methodologies and practices into the company for commercial delivery alongside the implementation of linguistic and narrative tools and techniques. You will work with a variety of stakeholders to ensure that the methodologies implemented are aligned with Together’s client needs. Therefore, an awareness of commercial drivers and previous industrial experience is desirable, but not essential.  

You should hold a Masters or PhD in Behavioural Psychology or related subject.

As a people-orientated individual, you will have the ability to influence and engage collaboratively between the team members at Together and the University of Nottingham academic team. As a proactive person, you will have the enthusiasm and motivation to organise your time effectively and have a flexible approach to prioritising tasks and work. Through the KTP, you will be given the support and mentoring you need to nurture your talent. You will have your own budget for training and Continuing Professional Development to help you develop your current skill set and reach your personal and professional career goals.

You will be employed by the University of Nottingham, but will be based at Together Agency. As a University employee, you will have access to University resources and a range of benefits and rewards, including staff discounts, travel schemes and a highly attractive pension scheme.

Together Agency is a small, close-knit, creative marketing agency located in the heart of Nottingham City Centre, providing services in Digital, Social Media, Brand and Packaging Design.
