The application deadline for this role has passed

The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) has a long-standing interest in power and accountability issues. In keeping with the Quaker values of the Trust, our vision is a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are responsive and accountable to wider society and aligned with the long-term public interest, considering those most disadvantaged by the system currently.

In 2014, the Trust established its Power and Accountability programme – with the aims of strengthening democratic accountability, corporate accountability and encouraging a responsible media. We work towards a number of objectives in these three areas as set out in our latest grants policy.

We are seeking a consultant to undertake a six month evaluation of the programme. The purpose of this evaluation is to identify what has been learned over the past six years of grant-making in the Power and Accountability programme, both to consider how well JRCT’s overall approach is enabling us to address the agenda, and to inform our assumptions about change and priorities going forward.

The study should commence by the end of October 2020, with the final report due by the end of April 2021. 

To apply

Proposals should be emailed to Katharine Knox – by Monday 28 September, 9am including the subject line Power and Accountability Programme Evaluation. 

Please contact Katharine Knox with any queries.
