We’re looking for an accomplished Research, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer with recent experience of working in a housing or related research/policy team, to play a key role in an exciting new project.
Inspiring Change Manchester is a new partnership that incorporates statutory, voluntary and private sector organisations alongside a core group of service users. Our vision? To help people improve their lives and sustain these improvements by transforming Manchester’s systems and services. We believe that people living in Manchester who have multiple needs can achieve real, lasting growth and fulfilment. Simply surviving is not enough. Yet our research shows that ‘survival’ rather than ‘growth’ is the reality for too many of the city’s most vulnerable residents. To make our vision possible, we’ll need to inspire a wide range of people across to change their beliefs and their behaviour. You’ll help us do just that.
This post is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund’s £112m initiative Fulfilling lives: Supporting people with multiple needs.
Benefits include 30 days annual leave, the possibility of flexible working and significant opportunities for learning and development.
Your key responsibilities:
• Assist with the evaluation of the programme at both local and national level, including carrying out primary qualitative and quantitative research with services users and stakeholders
• Help the Programme Management team deliver specific work streams in respect of research, monitoring and evaluation
• Compile and present reports
• Integrate service users into the programme by helping them to develop skills in terms of research, monitoring and evaluation.
And what you’ll need:
• A demonstrable track record in a related role and good knowledge of housing and homelessness issues, particularly in respect of people with multiple and complex needs
• An excellent understanding of qualitative and quantitative research methods and their application and a proven ability to interpret and analyse statistics
• A proactive, collaborative and customer focused approach plus a flair for writing reports and communicating your findings
• Proficiency using Microsoft Office applications.
At Shelter, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. We are facing diverse problems, so need diverse people to tackle them.
