Head of Evidence
We are looking for someone with a passion for using evidence for social change to drive forward JRF’s social research, monitoring and analysis. Someone to lead a team to provide the understanding we need to develop solutions to poverty, supporting researchers and analysts to perform at the highest level.
With the ability to engage with different audiences, and provide evidence-based analysis on poverty, you will be a senior spokesperson for JRF, working closely and collaboratively with colleagues across the organisation.
It’s not right that millions of people are locked in poverty in the UK and that’s why we’ve made it our mission to solve it. JRF’s new strategy will work alongside our partners to build public and political will for change and the demand for solutions. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Head of Evidence to join JRF in our new Evidence and Impact team.
A strong people manager with a passion for what we do, you will have a high level of experience and understanding of social research methods, coupled with a sound grasp of statistics.
With experience of commissioning and managing research projects and programmes, and the confidence to communicate complex material to a wide range of audiences, including the media, you will have a keen interest in UK poverty, policy and practice.
The successful candidate will work for an organisation who makes everyone feel able to be themselves at work, feel supported and enjoy a healthy work life balance. Offering an excellent staff benefits package and employer pension contribution, apply now.
Closing date for applications is Tuesday 19th February 2019
