The Organisation

ImpactEd is an award-winning social enterprise that supports schools and education organisations in understanding the impact that their programmes and interventions have on pupil outcomes.

Schools invest huge amounts of time, money and energy in different initiatives to support their pupils – from in-school tutoring to enrichment programmes to mentoring projects. But far too often, it is extremely challenging for them to assess the impact of what they do. ImpactEd aims to address this evaluation deficit. We exist to improve outcomes and life chances for children by helping decision makers to better identify and prioritise those programmes that are making the biggest difference.

We work in partnership with schools and education organisations to develop capacity for research and evaluation, and use our digital platform to make high-quality monitoring and evaluation easy. Most of our work is in or with schools, including collaborations with national school groups such as Challenge Partners and United Learning, universities such as SOAS and Manchester, and organisations like Project Access and CoachBright.

Founded in 2017, ImpactEd launched into schools in September 2018. Since then we have been growing rapidly. We won the prestigious Teach First Innovation Award, were finalists in the 2019 Education Resources Awards and have had our work profiled by the Department for Education. We are a small, dedicated and growing team that is committed to maximising social impact.

The Opportunity

The Impact and Partnerships Manager role is an exciting chance to lead our growing number of partnerships with external stakeholders, including charities, social enterprises and university partners. The focus of the role will be to design, deliver and consult on evaluation partnerships with these non-school partners. You will also contribute more broadly across the organisation, including working on our strategy, business development and fundraising, and elements of school delivery.

With responsibility for the design and delivery of this workstream, you’ll have the opportunity to define what excellence looks like. You’ll be joining an early-stage organisation and benefit from significant opportunities for growth, including the possibility of building a team as the organisation continues to scale. You will need to have a few years’ professional experience, but we are flexible on background. The strongest candidates are likely to have experience or an interest in education and some experience of research and evaluation, consulting or business development. However, mission and values alignment, and capacity to learn rapidly, are more important to us than specific experience.

This role is a fantastic opportunity for the right individual to join our team, with significant room for progression and development. You’ll be part of a dynamic education startup combining technology, education research and collaborative working with schools to make a difference to the lives of tens of thousands of pupils over the coming years.

Role Objectives

Partnership Management: You will support the engagement of our network of partners, with a particular focus on non-school partners delivering programmes in schools. This will involve equal elements of training and facilitation, relationship management, ongoing support and managing renewal processes.

Evaluation Support: You will become an evaluation expert to our partners, helping them to define their target outcomes, develop their impact strategy and think about research and evaluation approaches. As you develop in the role you will also be conducting data analysis, writing evaluation reports and distilling what can be complex messages into easy to interpret findings and next steps.

Building Sustainability: Through the role you will support our sustainability as a social enterprise and you will have opportunities to work on business development and income generation. Working with the Managing Director, you will contribute to bid writing, put together proposals and strategy documents, and support impact management.

Wider Responsibilities: As part of a small, focused team, you’ll be expected to contribute across the organisation. These responsibilities will be varied but might include: managing CRM processes; contributing to planning and strategy; organising events and training sessions; drafting marketing and communications materials.
