Research and Evaluation Manager (Together for Childhood).

The NSPCC exists to prevent cruelty to children. We are looking for a Senior Research & Evaluation Officer to join a team of researchers seeking to advance NSPCC's understanding, and the evidence base, around preventing child abuse and supporting children who have experienced it. Research helps us to understand the impact we have in our work with children, families, and communities, how we can improve that work, and enables us to understand the needs, wants and experiences of the children and families we seek to support.

The post holder will manage and carry out a programme of research and evaluation activity across the NSPCC’s Together for Childhood sites, alongside the Together for Childhood research team, which is part of the NSPCC Research & Evidence team.

We are looking for someone with:

  • A thorough understanding of research and evaluation design, and its application in different settings and contexts.
  • Significant experience of working in evaluation or social research, including participatory experience with children and young people and communities
  • Strong line management skills
  • Knowledge and experience of research and evaluation in the context of Place-Based Initiatives will be beneficial

This post is full-time and the location is flexible, but will require travel for fieldwork and six-weekly Research & Evidence Team meetings in London. We are happy to consider job share applications, and to consider flexible working where possible.

We are committed to play our part in creating and fostering a society that promotes mutual respect and that truly values diversity. All our candidates are considered fairly based on their merit, competence and performance, with all applications anonymised.

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Stephanie Talbut - Associate Head  stephanie.talbut@nspcc.org.uk 




As an organisation, we are committed to creating and fostering a culture that promotes safeguarding and the welfare of all children and adults at risk. Our safer recruitment practices support this by ensuring that there is a consistent and thorough process of obtaining, collating, analysing and evaluating information from and about candidates to ensure that all persons appointed are suitable to work with our children and adults.
