An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced evaluation professional to lead the Widening Access and Participation Evidence and Evaluation Team, within the Student Education and Experience Division. You will join at a crucial time as we move between current and new Access and Participation plans which brings significant opportunity to improve the evidence and evaluation service to meet new regulatory requirements.

You will work closely with the widening access and participation team to design and implement robust evaluation approaches with colleagues across the institution, particularly developing evaluation of post-entry activity (with current students) using existing protocols, frameworks and sector best practice. You will lead on developing new ways to engage a wider range of colleagues, communicating the growing evidence base, enabling reflective practice and ensure learning from evaluation is embedded into project design (including updating Theories of Change). You will also look to improve reporting, including publishing evaluation findings.

The ideal candidate will be willing to trial new initiatives, implement change and be highly flexible in their approach. You will need to possess, or quickly develop, a strong understanding of the new Access and Participation Plan regulatory landscape and the expectations around evaluation.

You will have experience of working in a similar/ transferable role, including experience of designing, managing and implementing projects to evaluate success and impact of activities. You will be able to demonstrate strong interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to lead a team as well as engage with a wide range of stakeholders, from students through to senior executives. With the ability to work with both qualitative and qualitative data, you will thrive on translating complicated insight for a range of audiences while building your reputation both internally and across the sector. 

This full-time post is available from 6 May 2024 a fixed term basis to 18 June 2025 to cover the maternity leave of the current post holder.

UEA offers a variety of flexible working options and although this role is advertised on a full-time basis, we encourage applications from individuals who would prefer a flexible working pattern including annualised hours, compressed working hours, part time, job share and/or hybrid working.
