Job description

The Atlantic Institute was established in 2016 with the support of The Atlantic Philanthropies, and in collaboration with the Rhodes Trust, Oxford (UK). 

At the Atlantic Institute we are committed to building a lifelong community of courageous changemakers who together will accelerate the eradication of inequity and injustice resulting in fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies. Our Fellows and Staff are accomplished leaders working in diverse settings and contexts, who together think, learn, incubate and implement strategies for greater impact. The diversity of our fellows is unprecedented and we are committed to the radical inclusion of these leaders as agents of change in communities most impacted by social, economic, racial and health inequities.  We provide them with the networks, architecture and resources to connect, learn and act to address the underlying systemic causes of inequity.

In the current global environment of a pandemic, the courageous work to eradicate inequities is more urgently needed than ever. To support, deepen and sustain our community’s impact at this critical juncture, we have therefore created several new permanent roles, including:

  • Associate Executive Director (Community, Programming and Impact)
  • Augmented and Virtual Realities Lead                                      
  • Program and Impact Lead (Innovation and Special Projects)
  • Learning and Evaluation Lead
  • Data Insight Analyst.

Learning and Evaluation Lead

We are seeking a Learning and Evaluation Lead, who will be responsible for implementing the Institute’s Learning and Evaluation strategy and supporting a learning culture. Reporting to the Associate Executive Director, Operations and Organisational Development, you will bring a strong knowledge of a range of evaluation, data collection and analysis methodologies and have a demonstrated flair, passion and enthusiasm for innovating new approaches to capturing, analysing and communicating learning and impact.

Core competencies

Consistent with all roles at the Atlantic Institute, it is essential that you demonstrate a critical understanding of the diverse root causes of inequities and show a commitment (in thinking and in action) to fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies. In addition, you will have the following skills, experience, and qualifications:

  • Demonstrated expertise in designing and developing a range of evaluation tools to monitor the effectiveness of social change programs and to track and narrate impact and learning (including qualitative, quantitative, mixed-method, and innovative methodologies).
  • Experience of working in collaborative, cross sector environments to facilitate conversations and innovate alongside individuals with diverse perspectives, ideally with experience in facilitating co-design methodologies.
  • Exceptional analysis and sense-making skills, demonstrating flair in identifying themes, analysing information thematically and critically.
  • Experience communicating conceptual and data-informed learning to a variety of audiences.
  • Demonstrable commitment to and experience of applying critical pedagogy and decolonizing evaluation methodologies, with evidence of having contributed to academic discourse desirable.
  • Undergraduate degree or equivalent is essential. The post-holder would ideally have a post-graduate qualification in a thematic area relevant to the Atlantic Fellows mission, public sector or business management.

Terms of appointment

Subject to a satisfactory probationary period of 6 months, this is a permanent role.
