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.
We work with both schools and education organisations such as charities, universities and education technology companies (our ‘impact partners’). Our work with impact partners focuses on helping these organisations to develop their impact evaluation methods and deliver evaluations. We divide this work into four different strands: evaluation design, capacity building workshops, use of our School Impact Platform and external evaluations. This role revolves around the implementation of the School Impact Platform in particular and focuses on some large-scale projects commencing shortly.
We are looking for a candidate who can lead on school onboarding and engagement. This means they have to have knowledge of the school context and how schools work internally as well as be comfortable communicating with different stakeholders in schools. In particular, you would be supporting schools as they are being onboarded onto the platform (meaning setting up their accounts and data collection tools) and follow up with them regularly to ensure good quality data collection is happening. You would work closely with our Impact Partnerships Officer, who will lead on the project, and our platform lead, who will provide support from a technical and product development side. You would need to be strong in written communication and enjoy engaging with schools and answering their queries.
We are looking for some of the following attributes, though you might be more experienced in some areas than others:
Understanding of the UK education system including understanding of school data, roles and terminology
Experience of working within an administrative and/or customer service role.
High IT literacy (ability to learn how to use new systems quickly)
Track record of effective process and project management.
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

We are currently looking for a Legal Campaigns Lead to help coordinate creative legal advocacy, litigation and public facing campaigns that are driven forward by Uplift and its partners. This is an exciting opportunity to support the movement to phase out fossil fuel extraction.
As Legal Campaigns Lead, you will coordinate Uplift’s legal campaigns to ensure that our legal advocacy has maximum political and corporate impact during a critical moment in the energy transition. This includes strategic litigation targeting fossil fuel companies and public policy, as well as advocacy focused on reforming key legal frameworks governing oil and gas extraction in the UK. Uplift envisages this litigation to be strongly supported by a communications and campaign strategy, including mobilising public support for the aims of the litigation, high-profile media coverage, and collaboration with campaign partners to increase public and media engagement with litigation.

- A high degree of motivation and initiative, and an ability to work relatively autonomously when needed.
- Exceptionally high standards, and associated qualities needed to work in a dynamic organisation with an ambitious agenda.
- A strong commitment to Uplift’s mission and core values of equity and climate justice.
