The role

You will be working on research that can help progress our knowledge and inform how engineering and technology can shape the future.

Your work to develop effective monitoring processes and impact evaluation capabilities will build our understanding of how the Academy’s work leads to meaningful change and what can be done to further our impact. You will be helping to assess the impact of a wide variety of programmes, including those focused on sustainable development, entrepreneurship, and research funding.

Working with colleagues across the whole of the organisation and other subject experts from across the sector, including our expert Fellowship, you will have the opportunity to apply your analytic skills to advance the Academy’s goal to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy.

You will contribute to building a culture of evidence-based working by helping grow the capabilities of the Academy and its staff in how analysis can be effectively embedded into the way we work.

As a member of a new team, you will have the opportunity to shape your role and will be encouraged to apply your unique experience and skillsets to deliver outstanding outputs. You will also provide critical input into the direction of the recently formed Analytic Function, working with the Senior Analyst to identify opportunities to grow the team’s impact.

Who are we looking for?

To succeed in this role, you will have strong theoretical and practical knowledge of monitoring programmes and impact evaluations, demonstrated through relevant experience. You will have experience of applying your analytic skills to address real-world problems and across unfamiliar topics.

You will be a skilled communicator, able to summarise complex information in an accessible, engaging way to a range of audiences. You will enjoy working collaboratively with colleagues of varying levels of seniority to deliver projects that meet different stakeholders’ needs.

You will have a track record of working autonomously, balancing multiple projects, and using creative thinking to solve problems.

We are recruiting for two vacancies concurrently via our website: x 1 Analyst – Monitoring and Evaluation and x 1 Analyst – Policy and Projects. If you would like to be considered for both vacancies, please indicate this within your supporting statement.
