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.
The Research and Learning Manager will contribute both capacity and high-level expertise to the Centre’s small, dynamic staffing structure: this role will work alongside and support a small team to deliver complex and cutting-edge programmes of work aligned with the Centre’s strategic vision. We are looking for an outstanding candidate who is energised and excited by the opportunities to work with and alongside the youth sector to affect change. We need a highly-skilled and imaginative researcher, who understands and can communicate the science and evidence behind impact, measurement and improvement in social programmes.
We also need an accomplished project manager who is comfortable keeping large and detailed programmes of work on track. 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.
