The Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) is young charity established to champion and support the use of effective early intervention to improve the lives of children and young people at risk of experiencing poor outcomes.
As a member of the What Works Network, we have a pivotal role as the go-to source for evidence and advice on early intervention for children and young people. Our work spans social policy and service areas, including health, education, families and policing. We seek to communicate evidence in a way that is robust and transparent and that is also relevant and accessible for national and local audiences, including policymakers, public service commissioners and managers, frontline practitioners and service providers.
We are creating a new team to drive our impact and evaluation work, playing a key active role in identifying promising early intervention programmes and advising on, conducting or commissioning high quality evaluation of these. We are looking for a Head of Impact and Evaluation to lead the evaluation team and oversee EIF’s work to support evaluation in local areas.
We are also looking for a Senior Adviser, Impact and Evaluation who will play a key role in supporting the evaluation of programmes, practices or system changes in local areas. This will include supporting EIF’s work to conduct feasibility and pilot studies across a range of areas including domestic abuse and early help, as well as supporting the commissioning of impact studies such as QEDs and RCTs.
We are looking for people who understand the local context for family support services and have experience of conducting and/or commissioning evaluations in complex ‘real world’ settings, from feasibility or pilot studies to impact studies such as QEDs and RCTs. They will also have strong stakeholder management skills, able to build and maintain strong relationships with Whitehall, sector bodies, national charities and local public services.
To be successful in either role, you will be a confident communicator, with excellent collaboration and stakeholder management skills as well technical know-how. Above all, you will be passionate and committed to improving the lives of vulnerable children and families, flexible, and a strong team-player.
