The Film and TV Charity is seeking an innovative, dynamic, and solutions-driven Impact and Evaluation Manager to join a team that is radically reimagining the way they support people working behind the scenes in film, TV and cinema.
The film, TV and cinema sector is a jewel in the UK's crown, both in terms of our exceptional creative talent and the sector's growing economic importance, but a culture of long hours, challenging conditions, and an acceptance of a long-held status quo also mean it can be an incredibly tough sector to work in, with the retention of talent an ongoing problem as a result.
In 2019, research commissioned by the charity found that 9 in 10 working behind the scenes had experienced poor mental health. The pandemic has only served to exacerbate the problem, while the harrowing conversation that followed the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 have further highlighted the systemic nature of discrimination.
Since the introduction of the Film and TV Support Line in 2018, the charity has been on an exciting journey of change and has joined industry partners at the forefront of the movement to make work better for everyone in the industry. The charity is providing, and continuing to develop, mental health and wellbeing support, financial support and advice, and a host of practical resources that are making a difference to thousands of people every year, but its ambitions are necessarily bolder.
The charity's Impact and Evaluation Manager will be responsible for the development of robust frameworks and tools to evaluate our performance against our mission, enabling us to tell compelling stories to our donors, and to drive continuous improvement. The successful candidate will need to drive a culture of impact evaluation and continuous improvement across the charity, ensuring impact informs decisions at every level. You will be working closely with the Development team to inform and develop the impact stories that underpin our case for support to donors, large and small.
The role is a new one and will suit a candidate with strong, demonstrable experience of impact measurement, statistical analysis, and service/programme evaluation in a similar sector. As well as being an exceptional communicator, the successful candidate will need to have strong analytical and numeracy skills, the ability to interpret data, and produce reports.
The candidate will need to be confident in using MS suite and Salesforce and handle and distil large quantities of data. An understanding of how the film and/or television industry works is preferable, as is a real desire to be part of a team that is passionate about making a difference. You will be a committed team member, but also confident working on your own initiative.
The charity recognises that people from some backgrounds are under-represented in the film and TV industry and in the third sector and is committed to doing what it can to correct this. Therefore, we are especially keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities; those who identify as LGBTQIA; people with a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class now or in the past.
Location: Golden Square, London (with the flexibility for some remote working)
Salary: £40,000 - £50,000 (pro rata) per annum plus excellent benefits
Contract: Permanent Part Time (3/5)
Closing date for applications: 9.00am on Friday 15th October 2021
