Senior Quantitative Researcher

Spread the love

We are looking for someone who is passionate about using their quantitative research skills to join our growing Impact and Evaluation team to help improve support for vulnerable children and young people, and ultimately make a positive difference in their lives. 

About Coram and the team

Coram is the UK’s first and longest continuing children’s charity helping vulnerable children and young people since 1739. Today, Coram helps more than one million children, young people, families and professionals every year by providing access to the skills and opportunities they need to thrive.

We are soon to launch the Institute for the Future of Children with the ambition of being the UK’s leading centre dedicated to improving the life chances of children. As a team we aspire to be child-centred, rigorous, grounded in experience, embedded in practice, collaborative and impactful. We are genuinely committed to encouraging candidates from all sections of the community we seek to support. 

About the role

Coram’s Impact & Evaluation Team is seeking an analyst, researcher or evaluator with experience of using quantitative methods in research studies or impact evaluations. Working within Coram’s growing Impact and Evaluation team (which currently includes eight permanent researchers) the Senior Quantitative Researcher will work to deliver multiple research and evaluation projects to support the improvement of policy and practice for vulnerable children, young people and their families. This will include implementation and process evaluations as well as quasi-experimental and experimental impact evaluations working across Coram and with external partners and funders in local authorities, central government, businesses and other third sector organisations.

This new post is a chance to take a leading role in a portfolio of internal and external projects, and contribute to the strategic direction of the team and of the future of quantitative analysis in the Coram group of children’s charities. You will need end-to-end experience of leading or supporting research or evaluation projects with a quantitative emphasis, and be ready for a new challenge where you can apply your high level of competence in statistical analysis.

The role also comes with a range of personal and professional benefits including dedicated time for continuous professional development, 25 plus days of annual leave, regular team reflective practice sessions and flexible working arrangements.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced senior researcher who has a passion for using their research skills to design and deliver high-quality evidence which improves policy and practice for children, young people and their families.

Coram is an equal opportunities employer and we are very committed to encouraging candidates from all sections of the community we seek to support. This includes those from global majority groups, those that identify as LGBQT+, those with disabilities, those with lived experience of care, those with neuro-diversity, and those from other groups who are underrepresented in research roles. If applicants feel comfortable, we would encourage them to draw on lived experience in their personal statement as part of their application. 

Closing date: 5pm on 28/08/2023

Interview date: 05/09/2023, 06/09/2023 or 07/09/2023

We will also make any reasonable adjustments at the interview stage for applicants invited to interview to support inclusivity.

We are committed to the safeguarding of children and where appropriate will require the successful applicant to undertake a check from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
