I CAN is the UK’s leading children's communication charity. We exist to help the million-plus children in the UK who are struggling with speaking and understanding language right now. Each year we design programmes that support more than 15,000 children and we train over 6,000 people who work with children to develop their speaking and understanding. Our two outstanding schools help children with the biggest communication barriers to overcome them. We support families to develop their child’s speaking and understanding, and we push for the government to change policies to improve the life chances for children who struggle with their speaking and understanding.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and committed Project and Evaluation Officer to join our small team in central London. You will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects across the organisation and will gain experience in working closely with multi-disciplinary teams and external stakeholders. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is looking to take the next step in progressing their career. You will have a key role to play in developing the data collection and assessment approach for our new Talk for Work project, ensuring that young people who are not in education, employment or training get the support they need.
We are keen to hear from you if you have:
- Experience in supporting a variety of projects at different scales.
- Experience in analysing large amounts of qualitative and quantitative data.
- Experience in developing or using online assessment or data collection tools.
- Evidence of working under own initiative to deliver on projects.
- Good interpersonal and communication skills.
- An interest in supporting children’s development and access to education.
Does this sound like you? We would love to hear from you if that is the case.
In return we offer you:
- An inclusive and supportive environment
- Hybrid working as well as the tools to work from the office and from home
- Access to our employee benefits programmes (Perkbox and Pension Scheme)
- A range of employee wellbeing interventions
- An investment in your personal development

I CAN works within the government’s COVID-19 guidelines.
We serve children and young people from all backgrounds and strive to represent the same diversity in our workforce. We strongly believe there is unity in diversity and are committed to create an inclusive working environment for all. We are under-represented by people who are from ethnic minority backgrounds and those who identify as being from the LGBTQ+ community. We particularly welcome applications from all suitably qualified people from these backgrounds. If you are excited about making an impact in children’s lives, we would love to hear from you.
Please note that we will not close applications before this time and date as we recognise that candidates put a lot of time and effort into making an application and we want to give each of you the time and space to put in an application you feel proud of.
Please note that we will not shortlist candidates who do not submit a CV and a supporting statement.
Due to the volume of applications that we receive, unfortunately, we are not always able to respond to every applicant. If you have not received a response within one week after the closing date, you have not been successful on this occasion.
We are committed to safer recruitment practices and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service or equivalent criminal records check.
