Job Details

 NPC is the leading, independent consultancy and think tank for the UK social sector, working with charities, philanthropic funders and policymakers to achieve the greatest possible social impact for the people, places and causes that need it.

We are recruiting a senior consultant to join our busy and dynamic team which focuses on supporting organisations to maximise their social impact.
Our work is highly regarded in the sector, and we work with a range of clients including charities of all sizes, grant-making trusts, corporates, government, and philanthropists. This is an exciting opportunity if you have a passion for strategy, impact measurement and for making the social sector more effective. Our clients this year have ranged from large well-known organisations such Comic Relief and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to smaller organisations like Praxis.

About the role

You will work with a team of experienced consultants to deliver consulting projects for charities and funders. Often this involves working with organisations to examine what they want to achieve, the best routes to get there and how best to evaluate their effectiveness. NPC works across the UK voluntary sector, so you will get to work on a wide variety of topic areas and organisations, on both large and small projects. You would also have chances to contribute to NPC’s wider thinking, profile and engagement in the sector.

The ideal candidate will have a relevant experience in a consulting or research role in professional services, public policy or the third sector. You also have good research and analysis skills and are able to work flexibly, independently and on multiple projects at once. Experience of managing research or consultancy projects is essential. Other experience that would be an advantage are data analysis, statistics, economics, workshop facilitation and qualitative research.

We are based in London with some flexibility around remote working. You can read about the full range of NPC benefits offers on our website. We are open to applications from applicants looking to work part-time hours and/or secondment options.
