Impact and Evaluation Adviser

Full-time, permanent, flexible working considered
Applications close 5pm, Wednesday 12 August

We are looking for an impact and evaluation adviser to help us ensure that EIF evidence is used to inform local investment and practice decisions. Working with colleagues across the organisation, you will ensure that an understanding of local systems and the needs of local audiences is embedded in our work from the outset. You will also work with local places to support the use of evidence in decision-making relating to early intervention. This might be indirectly through producing accessible advice and tools aimed at local decision-makers, or directly, including through evaluation support.  

Grounded in an understanding of the local delivery environment for children and family services, you will be committed to the potential of evidence-informed decision-making to improve outcomes for children and young people. You will also have practical experience of conducting evaluations and carrying out qualitative research. You will be confident in communicating complex research in a way that is accessible to local audiences. Above all, you will be passionate and committed to improving the lives of vulnerable children and families, flexible, and a strong team player.
