Senior Evaluation Officer, Youth Endowment Fund

£44,401–£46,738, plus generous benefits
Full-time, permanent, flexible working considered
Applications close 9am, Monday 20 July

EIF is a partner in the Youth Endowment Fund (YEF), a bold new attempt to put early intervention at the heart of efforts to tackle youth offending. YEF supports programmes and community partnerships working with children at risk of being drawn into crime and violence. The evaluation team supports the decisions made about which programmes to fund, by commissioning independent evaluation of all projects funded by YEF.

We’re looking for an experienced senior evaluation officer to build the technical and quality assurance capacity of the evaluation team. The right person will have proven team management experience, as well as knowledge of a wide range of evaluation methodologies and how they are successfully applied. This is a new role within the fund, so the right candidate will need to be comfortable working in a rapidly evolving environment.

To be successful, you will be a strong communicator with excellent project management skills. You will also have a strong appreciation and understanding of the way evidence can support decision-making. Above all, you will be passionate and committed to improving the lives of young people, flexible, and a strong team player.

We are especially interested to hear from applicants who have lived experience of youth violence.
