We are hiring!

Freelance opportunities to come and work with us...

The Evaluator is a fast-growing evaluation consultancy, founded in 2017 by Kirsty Rose Parker, helping charities and not-for-profit organisations to demonstrate the impact of their work creatively and visually. The Evaluator uses the tagline “We’ll figure it out for you”.

Ultimately, we are often ‘measuring the unmeasurable’ and fixing problems on a day-to-day basis. The tasks included in this work range from data capture, face-to-face consultations, telephone calls, research, analysis, report-writing, visual data creation, presenting information, and creative problem solving.

As the business is growing fast we need more freelance support, and are looking for people who have some of the following skills. Please note, we don’t need you to be able to do everything and we do really value honesty, so if one or more skills is not your ‘bag’, tell us!

We want people who:

  • Love numbers and have qualifications in maths, and ideally statistics. Do you have an analytical mind? Do you love a spreadsheet?
  • Love language and are a wordsmith. Can you write brilliantly? Concisely? Do you have a great style?
  • Are creative. Tell us what you love to do. Do you like colour, and art and design?
  • Care about making a difference to people’s lives. Do you volunteer for a charity? Have you worked in the not-for-profit sector before?
  • Have amazing people skills. When was the last time a complete stranger told you their life story?
  • Communicate brilliantly. Are you great at public speaking? Can you facilitate a conversation? Carry out staff training?
  • Are honest, reliable, punctual, willing to learn, and enthusiastic.

In addition, although not essential:

  • Have you experience of evaluations at all? Either carrying them out or simply taking part? Maybe you have carried out surveys and research in the past?
  • Have you project management skills? Can you plan something out and make sure it is all done in a logical and efficient way?
  • Have you research skills? Tell us about them.
  • Can you think and write strategically?

In return, The Evaluator can offer an exciting and dynamic work opportunity - every day is different, and we are often making a difference to people’s lives. This is work that means something.

We are looking for freelance individuals who are happy to work from home, able to travel to East Lancashire occasionally for meetings, and happy to travel around as part of the work undertaken. The majority of the work is currently in the North West and Yorkshire regions, but may grow. We want to build a relationship with our freelancers, you will be the face of The Evaluator and will need to be professional at all times. We are happy to negotiate a fixed amount of work if preferred.

Rate of Pay

Rate of Pay: £175 per day, or £25 per hour. You must be responsible for your own tax and insurance, and prove this with a UTR number, have access to a car which is insured for business use and be willing to travel (please note travel costs are not paid extra), and have appropriate professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
