Job description

Prospectus are delighted to be working with The Youth Futures Foundation in their search for a Senior Evidence and Evaluation Officer (SEO). The Youth Futures Foundation is an independent, not for profit organisation set up to tackle youth unemployment with a £90million endowment from the Reclaim Fund. Their vision is of a society where all young people have equitable access to good quality jobs.

The Youth Futures Foundation aim to narrow the employment gap by identifying what works and why, investing in evidence generation and innovation, and igniting a movement for change. Youth Futures Foundation focuses on young people in England aged 14-24 (with a priority for those aged 16-24) who face significant barriers into sustained, good work. When Youth Futures Foundation launched, youth unemployment was already too high, particularly for young people facing disadvantage or discrimination.

Within this role, you will be responsible for supporting all aspects of Youth Futures evaluations from design to dissemination. This will include; working closely with our grants team to ensure grant-funded programmes are supported within the set-up phase, supporting grantees through their evaluation journey, and managing external evaluation contracts.

The successful candidate will have knowledge or experience of evaluation methodologies (such as programme theory, process, impact and/or RCT trial design) gained within a commissioning or research setting, and a good track record in supporting successful research and evaluation projects. You will have good experience of qualitative and quantitative research, including critically appraising qualitative and quantitative data, evidence, and literature, and a relevant qualification in an economic, social science or related discipline - or on-the-job experience or training, ideally with strong quantitative and qualitative elements.

Prospectus welcomes candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds. Please let us know if we can help you with the application process in any way. We are more than happy to make any reasonable adjustments to enable all interested candidates to apply.

If you are interested in applying for this Senior Evidence & Evaluation Manager position, please submit your CV in the first instance.

You'll then have all the information you need to formally apply. We are looking forward to connecting with you soon.
