Head of Impact
The Head of Impact has specific responsibility for ensuring that the Foundation understands and is responding to assets and needs in the communities we serve and, as such, contributes directly to the Foundation’s strategy. A key focus of the role is in ensuring that our grant-making retains the right balance between strategic and reactive and between relational and data-driven approaches, so we respond both flexibly and equitably to what communities need.
You will be responsible for overseeing the use of impact frameworks for our grant-making and for ensuring we have the tools we need to communicate our realised and potential impact. You will ensure that our impact work informs our agenda of becoming a more equitable grant-maker.
The successful candidate will be an experienced grant-maker and/or impact and evaluation lead, who is knowledgeable in impact measurement tools, a confident communicator and demonstrates strong people skills.
We particularly encourage applications from people with disabilities and trans and non-binary people, who are currently under-represented within our staff team.
