We have an exciting opportunity for an outstanding quantitative analyst to apply their advanced skills for the public good, working as part of a team to deliver the quasi-experimental, realist evaluation in the Prison Leavers Programme.
The post is to support the completion of the quantitative outcome analysis for the evaluation of the Prison Leavers Programme and is funded by the Ministry of Justice. The evaluation is being carried out by the University of Kent in collaboration with Tonic.
In order to carry out this work, the postholder will also be seconded into the Ministry of Justice (while remaining an employee of the University of Kent) in order to access the necessary data for the PLP outcome evaluation. Appointment to this post is conditional on the selected applicant passing the necessary vetting by the Ministry of Justice. We aim for the post to start in January 2024, but this will depend on passing vetting.
We are working with the Ministry of Justice to develop a dataset that brings together data on imprisonment, offending, health, and employment outcomes for people who leave prison. By December 2025, we must deliver to the Ministry of Justice an evaluation of the PLP. We also plan to produce related academic outputs. The successful applicant will primarily work on carrying out and reporting quantitative analysis of the outcomes achieved by people who have gone through interventions funded by the PLP. There will also be opportunities for the successful applicant to collaborate on other research projects in SSPSSR.
