Research and Evaluation Officer
Hybrid Working Policy (Home and Office Working)
Salary of £28,917 - £33,000 per annum
We are looking for a Research and Evaluation Officer to join our Policy, Communications and Research directorate to help us to meet our mission to partner with small and local charities to help more people overcome complex social issues and rebuild their lives.
We’re committed to using research, evaluation and data for the Foundation and our charity partners to learn and improve. The Research and Evaluation Officer post is key to delivering that ambition, building our capacity to evaluate and working with others to foster a learning culture across the Foundation and beyond.
As part of a small team this will be a highly varied role - you will work across all the Foundation’s grantmaking and development programmes for small and local charities to embed the use of evaluation, research and data in our work.
We are currently devising a new three year strategy due to launch in 2022 so you will be joining the Foundation during an exciting period and have the opportunity to help in the launch.
We are an independent charitable trust funded by the Lloyds Banking Group. We partner with small and local charities helping people overcome complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse. Their size and understanding of the people and local communities they work with means they are able to make a life-changing impact where others cannot. But these charities are underfunded, under pressure and too often ignored.
That’s why we’re more than just a funder – we work in partnership with the charities we fund and others who share our vision.
We listen, understand and respond to charities, funding core costs and providing developmental support for charities to grow stronger and become more sustainable. We influence policy and practice to help charities thrive in the future and to address the causes and consequences of complex social issues.
Interviews will be held on the 24th February 2022.
We encourage applications from all sections of our diverse community, irrespective of age, disability, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership. We want an inclusive organisation that reflects our community and where everyone feels empowered to bring their authentic selves to work. We believe our organisation will be a better, more creative and innovative place to work if we can harness the benefit of different perspectives.
The Foundation is committed to making our recruitment practices barrier-free and as inclusive as possible for everyone. This includes making adjustments or changes for people who have a disability or long-term health condition.
If you need any ‘reasonable adjustments’ for any part of the recruitment process please let us know, in confidence, to discuss these.
