The Organisation

ImpactEd Evaluation (part of ImpactEd Group) is an award-winning social enterprise that exists to help evaluate, understand and improve impact in education. In our education system, we invest huge amounts of time, money and energy in different programmes and interventions to improve outcomes for pupils. Yet far too often, we don’t know what is working – and what isn’t. We address this evaluation deficit, helping organisations and schools to better understand what is working to make a difference to the lives of young people. We do this through a combination of hands-on partnership, training and consultancy, and our digital platform which makes monitoring and evaluation quicker, easier and more effective.

Since being founded in 2017, we have grown rapidly. In 2018, we won the Teach First Innovation Award; in 2019, our work was profiled by the Department for Education; and in 2020, we published the largest pupil-facing piece of research into the impact of lockdown, winning the Fair Education Alliance Scaling Award in the same year. Since then, we have expanded to reach over 1000 schools, 80 education organisations and more than 250,000 young people annually. We are a skilled team of over 30 people, supported by a Board with a track record of social impact and educational development.

This year we have expanded to create the ImpactEd Group, which supports purpose driven organisations to make better decisions using high quality evidence. Our strategy is currently being updated to this effect. As a social enterprise moving towards employee ownership, our commitment across all parts of the Group is to empower our partners to make better decisions on behalf of their beneficiaries and empower our team to make decisions on behalf of the organisation

The Opportunity

Understanding which interventions and programmes are likely to make the biggest difference to the life chances of young people is more important than ever. As School Partnerships Officer, you will work to ensure that our school and multi-academy trust partners are empowered to effectively monitor and evaluate their work to make a bigger impact.

You will be the first point of contact for a portfolio of partners who you will work with to deliver our programme of support, track their engagement on the School Impact Platform, and ensure retention and long-term partnerships. Day to day, that could mean helping a school to get set up on the platform, supporting a school to understand whether their new tutoring intervention is having the desired impact on disadvantaged students, or working with a Multi-Academy Trust to monitor pupil wellbeing and meta-cognition across their schools.

As a varied role in a growing social enterprise, the opportunity has a mix of partnership and account management responsibilities combined with support for school-based research. You will help manage our renewals cycle, ensure our schools get the most out of working with us, and identify opportunities for partnership growth and engagement.

About You

We are looking for some of the following attributes, though you might be more experienced in some areas than others:

  • Understanding and experience of the UK education system.

  • Experience of partnership and account management, particularly in relation to programme delivery or supporting engagement with digital products.

  • Experience of sales and managing renewals or upsells.

  • Research, evaluation or statistical experience, particularly in education or youth work.

  • A real understanding of the challenges within education, and a passion for helping schools to address them.

Why Us?

As an organisation we care deeply about creating a meaningful place to work and supporting people to grow personally and professionally. These are reflected in our organisational values and our associated commitments to:

  • Agile and flexible working: responsive management, flexible hours, hybrid or fully remote working

  • Personal excellence: we invest significantly in professional development, including an external mentor for every staff member, an individual CPD budget, and formal and informal training and support

  • Mental health and wellbeing: access to health and wellbeing advice and free therapist support

Diversity and inclusion at ImpactEd Group

As a growing organisation we are committed to:

  • Becoming increasingly representative of the sector and geographies that we operate in

  • Providing a positive experience of work as part of an inclusive culture led by our organisational values

  • Maintaining an annual EDI action plan - led by the internal team and supported by a Board sponsor

What to expect from the recruitment process:

  • All applications are anonymised until the point of interview

  • We use a recruitment system, Applied, which debiases the recruitment process

  • We implement a standardised interview template and competencies matrix.

To Apply

To apply, you will be asked to submit your CV and answer 3 work-based scenario questions and 1 motivation question. 

Applications close at 9am on Thursday 7th December 2023. First round interviews will take place Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th December and second round interviews will take place on Wednesday 20th December.
