We are particularly keen to recruit a ‘people-person’ who loves chatting to people and helping people to tell their stories.  We are prepared to train the right applicants; you do not need to have worked as an evaluator previously.

  • Project Management experience
  • Some experience of the charity/ not for profit/ public sector

In return; The Evaluator can offer an exciting and dynamic work opportunity where every day is different, and we are often making a difference to people’s lives. This is work that means something. Current projects include conservation, heritage building work, opportunities for Deaf and disabled people in the music industry, exploring how wellbeing and nature interact, measuring the impact of long-term arts projects, national festivals and working with long term unemployed and some offenders.


We are looking for someone who is happy to work from home for the time being, able to travel to East Lancashire once a week for one office day, happy to travel around as part of the work undertaken.  Our clients are all over the UK, although travel is not a regular occurrence.
