About the Youth Endowment Fund

The Youth Endowment Fund is a bold new attempt to put early intervention at the heart of efforts to tackle youth offending.

In recent years violent crime has risen significantly. Homicides, assaults, robberies and offences involving weapons have all seen sustained growth. We have also seen large increases in violent crime involving children and young people. This is a tragedy. Every child captured in these numbers is an important member of our community and society has a duty to protect them.

The Youth Endowment Fund is a charity with a £200m endowment and a mission that matters. Founded by youth charity Impetus and its partners, the Early Intervention Foundation and the Social Investment Business, we exist to prevent children and young people from getting caught up in violent crime. We do this by finding the very best ways to prevent youth violence, funding great initiatives and working to scale them up and spread great ideas.

Research and evidence are at the heart of our charity’s mission. We want to be the go-to place for evidence on the lives of children affected by youth crime and violence, its causes, and what works to prevent it.

Task Description

We’re looking for passionate data analysts who are committed to ensuring that data and evidence drives everything that we do.  Your job will be to support the delivery of a programme of quantitative research into the characteristics, backgrounds and lives of the children and communities affected by youth crime and violence to inform our work to support initiatives designed to prevent youth violence.

Key Responsibilities

Working as part of team, we want two people who can:

  • Lead on the original quantitative analysis of administrative data and longitudinal datasets, bringing new insights into the lives of vulnerable young people affected by crime and violence.
  • Maintain, build and expand our understanding of the latest data and trends in youth violence and its drivers.
  • Combine a range of data sources on youth crime, violence and wider socio-economic risk factors, to develop our methodology for identifying local geographic areas for targeted support and implementing public health approaches to reducing youth crime.
  • Help to design the methodology for evaluating the impact of our local area work as well as working with our selected local partners in using their data to improve outcomes.
  • Contribute to a range of published outputs, including research reports, briefings and regular blog posts, looking at novel forms of communicating and visualisation of complex information for nontechnical audiences.
  • Work collaboratively with a range of external partners, including central government, local bodies and other research organisations, to enhance our understanding of data and trends and in delivering our research programme.

About You

You are this sort of person:

  • You are a very curious person that is confident with quantitative research. You have expertise in applied data research and are comfortable with a range of quantitative methodologies. You can provide examples of how you have used these approaches to provide insight into important questions.
  • You are an excellent communicator. You love to communicate research to a diverse range of audiences, many of whom are not experts.
  • You’re able to work independently and as part of a team. You get satisfaction from supporting your colleagues and meeting goals together but are self-motivated and can work independently.
  • You win people over. You can build great partnerships and are comfortable working with a range of different people.
  • You don't want your days to pass without making a difference. You want to play a significant part in reducing the level of youth violence.
  • You are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. You believe and act in a way that celebrates and encourages a range of experiences, views and values.

You must have this sort of qualification/knowledge/experience:

  • A post-graduate qualification. This is in a relevant field such as statistics, data science, economics, social policy or any other relevant field with a significant quantitative component.
  • Competence with data: You are comfortable using complex datasets and advanced analytical techniques as well as getting your hands dirty pulling together messy stats from a range of sources.
  • Strong IT skills: You will have experience of at least one programming language (e.g. R, STATA etc) and are confident in using Microsoft Excel.
  • Excellent communicator: You will combine your technical expertise with experience of communicating complex evidence and analysis in a simple and accessible ways to non-experts.
  • Collaborative working: You see value in working with others to get the best outcomes on each task and project.

You might have this sort of knowledge/skills/experience:

  • Experience of using administrative data: You might have worked previously on research projects that have used administrative datasets, such as the National Pupil Database or Police National Computer.

While it is not a criterion, we are especially interested to hear from applicants who have lived experience of youth violence.

It is also important to us that the people we hire do not discriminate. We believe in being inclusive and giving everyone an equal chance to succeed. Applications are welcome from all regardless of age, sex, gender identity, disability, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, race, sexual orientation, transgender status or social economic background.
