Associate Director or Research Director: major, high-profile evaluations; successful and dynamic business

This is a hugely exciting opportunity to join a successful and growing team which is winning and carrying out many of the highest profile, important evaluation pieces around public policy and public services. This team is consistently winning some of the most sought-after evaluations – many of which are multi-million pound and multi-year. This new role has been created as the result of impressive growth; we are open to hearing from evaluation specialists at both Associate Director and Research Director level. The client is open to generalists and to people who want to specialise in a specific policy area.

This team consists of impressive and highly regarded evaluators, many of whom are senior and high profile in the industry. And they work alongside and have ready access to other specialists: people in the wider team who are objectively seen as experts in their field (methodologists, behavioural experts, ethnography experts…) as well as external experts (academics, economists…). Exposure to working alongside people at the top of their game is something the team often mention as something they really appreciate about working here.

Across the board, everyone is committed to and passionate about making a difference – to individuals, often the most vulnerable people, and to society as a whole. It runs through them all.

For this role, we are looking for an experienced research and evaluation specialist who has experience of overseeing process, impact and economic evaluations. You’ll need a proven track record of overseeing evaluation programmes across the project lifecycle, from initial design through to delivering outstanding debriefs.

As importantly, this will suit a strong team player with natural communication skills who is down to earth, creative and passionate.  This is a fun, supportive, collaborative team of people who pull together – we need someone who fits in.

This is a high performing team – they are winning work off the back of their quality offer – it is a buoyant, positive place to work.  Development opportunities abound in terms of your own learning and career progression – and all in a sensible, supportive structure where people stay for the longer term and clearly thrive.
