About the Roles


At Sustrans we are proud of our commitment to creating happier places and healthier lives for everyone. Our Research and Monitoring Unit plays an important part in supporting our vision by providing evidence on sustainable and active travel that ultimately influences and shapes policy, practice and behaviour across the UK.


We now have a fantastic opportunity to help us make a difference by joining our team as a Senior Evaluation Officer. We have two roles, one focussing on Infrastructure projects (working primarily with Sustrans colleagues and local authority partners on projects across Scotland) and one working on Behaviour Change projects (evaluating Sustrans work with schools, workplaces and communities).


Your role will see you supervising the delivery of a range of high profile monitoring, evaluation, analysis and research projects whilst providing support and direction to members of your team as a line manager.


About You


We are looking for excellent communicators and creative thinkers with the ability to manage and motivate people, getting the best out of others. You will use your exceptional analytical skills and draw on your previous experience of both project management and a wide range of qualitative and quantitative research methods to apply them to real world projects. So, if you have a track record of scoping, designing, budgeting and reporting on research and evaluation projects, this could be the role for you.


Apply today by following the instructions for our online application process. 




Closing date for the receipt of completed applications is 9am on 23 March 2021.  Interviews will take place via MS teams during the week commencing Monday 29 March 2021.
