About us
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

Through our pioneering research into the causes and consequences of homelessness and the solutions to it, we know what it will take to end it, together, in our lifetimes.

About the role 
Crisis is looking for an Evaluation Manager to join the Research and Evaluation team on a temporary basis.

This is an exciting opportunity to manage our evaluation programme and shape how we use evidence to inform Crisis’ strategy and service design. The work will involve designing and managing innovative evaluation projects including peer led research and expanding our robust evidence base to make the case for ending homelessness across our frontline services and grants programme. 

Please note that partial remote working from within the UK may be available for this role but there will be a requirement for regular work from our London office.

About you
Are you passionate about ending homelessness? Do you want to work in a team that values people’s skills and life experiences, whatever their background? 

We are looking for someone who will support a fast paced Research and Evaluation team to ensure Crisis is the leading expert in understanding the major issues impacting the lives of people facing homelessness. This is a great opportunity for a candidate who is passionate about using evidence to underpin Crisis’s aim of ending homelessness across our services. You must have strong project management skills and extensive knowledge of designing, conducting and applying qualitative and quantitative evaluations to support practical outcomes. 

If this excites you and you have the skills and attitude we need, then we would like to hear from you. Interviews will be in early April 2021.

Benefits
As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including: 
•    Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
•    Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
•    25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your on-going development to build your skills, experience and career. We really value people’s lived experience of homelessness and want to help develop diverse, committed and passionate people to help us end homelessness.
