This is an exciting time to work at Waltham Forest. We are a borough that is growing and changing; culturally diverse, vibrant and rich in heritage. In February Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan named us the first ever London Borough of Culture. This presents us with a unique opportunity to deliver a groundbreaking programme of events and activities for our residents in 2019, and establish a legacy of culture on every corner.
Evaluation is a fundamental part of our culture year. It is essential that we effectively monitor and evaluate the impact of our programme and demonstrate that it’s meeting its outcomes and hitting its targets.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated evaluation officer to join our Borough of Culture delivery team on a fixed-term contract to 31 January 2020. The successful candidate will manage the delivery of our evaluation plan. You will also contribute to its ongoing development; devising data collection methods and processes to ensure robust quantitative and qualitative data is gathered. Working in the fast-paced ‘engine’ of our cultural programme and alongside the Council’s Insight team, you will be responsible for regular reporting to senior management within the organisation as well as colleagues in the GLA and other partner agencies.
You will be competent in a range of methodologies and skilled in extracting meaningful insight from data. A passion for arts and culture will be a benefit, as will experience of working in the public or charitable sectors.
