Impact Partnerships Manager

ImpactEd


The organisation

ImpactEd is an award-winning social enterprise that exists to help evaluate, understand and improve impact in education. In our education system, we invest huge amounts of time, money and energy in different programmes and interventions to improve outcomes for pupils. Yet far too often, we don’t know what is working – and what isn’t.

We exist to address this evaluation deficit, helping schools and those working with them to better understand what is working to make a difference to the lives of young people. We do this through a combination of hands-on partnership, training and consultancy, and our digital platform which makes monitoring and evaluation quicker, easier and more effective. We work with both schools and other education organisations such as charities, universities and education technology companies (our ‘impact partners’).

The opportunity

This role is a new opportunity to support and manage our growing number of impact partnerships, working with a range of education organisations aiming to improve the life chances of children. Having grown significantly in recent months, we are looking for a candidate who can design, consult and support delivery of evaluation partnerships with these impact partners. In particular, you will help our partners to develop their approaches to monitoring and evaluation and conduct independent impact assessments of a number of educational programmes and interventions. We are especially looking for candidates with expertise in quantitative research design and analysis.

About you

We are open to a range of backgrounds, but real advantages would be: quantitative research and evaluation experience; experience working within the UK education system; and experience of partnership management.

As well as this, you are likely to be most successful in the role if you communicate clearly and persuasively (both written and verbally), are detail-oriented and analytical, share our intellectual curiosity and desire to learn rapidly and are entrepreneurial and solution-focused.

Why us?

You would be joining a dynamic social enterprise with opportunities for significant development and progression in line with organisational growth. We are committed to:

  • Agile and flexible working: responsive management, flexible hours, work from home options

  • Personal excellence: we invest significantly in professional development, including an external mentor for every staff member, an individual CPD budget, and formal and informal training and support

  • Transparency and ownership: we have an open culture that ensures all staff guide our strategic direction

The application deadline is 21st June 2021 at 9am. Please note that we will review applications regularly as they come in, so early applications are strongly encouraged.
