The Centre for Youth Impact is committed to working collaboratively to progress thinking and practice in impact measurement in youth work and provision for young people. Our vision is for all young people to have access to high quality programmes and services that improve their life chances. We believe that embedded approaches to more meaningful impact measurement are critical in achieving our vision.
Our networks are at the heart of how we work. The Head of Networks and Practice Development will be responsible for developing and strengthening these relationships and our wider networks, and leading the support that we offer to youth sector practitioners and managers across the UK (further details on our existing networks can be found here).
The Head of Networks and Practice Development will form part of the Centre’s Senior Leadership Team, and will contribute both capacity and expertise to the Centre’s small, dynamic team.
We are looking for an outstanding candidate who is imaginative and agile, with strong interest and high-level skills in evaluation and capacity building for social sector organisations. You will need to have an appetite for understanding and navigating complexity, with an inquisitive mind and interest in youth-focused public policy and system dynamics. We take a coaching approach to all of our work, so skills and experience in this area will be a distinct advantage.
We’re looking for someone with the relevant skills, knowledge and experience who wants to make a difference to the life chances of young people, and the organisations that exist to support them.
