Join the Network

As an Evaluation Manager you will embed evaluation principles into the Combined Authority’s policy design process and manage both internal and external evaluation of policy initiatives and strategic investments. The Combined Authority bases its approach to evaluation on the best practice outlined by HM Treasury’s ‘Magenta Book’, but is seeking to benchmark the impact of our activities against a broad range of economic, social and environmental indicators. The postholder will therefore play a key role in shaping the direction of policy in the City Region, and in holding the organisation to account for delivery of system change and outcomes.

The ideal candidates will have significant experience of managing and/or advising on evaluation of policy and/or investment programmes, preferably in or for local or central government or a relevant policy body/agency. They will have a strong understanding of evaluation best practice as captured by HMT’s Magenta Book and experience of developing evaluation plans to support a policy making process.
