Performance Evaluation Manager |

Date Posted 15 Mar 2017


XLP is a Christian charity at the forefront of urban youth work in the UK. Based in inner-London, we aim to bring community transformation to one of the world’s most diverse cities by developing  long term relationships with young people, so that they will have trusted role models and through their support believe that change is possible in their own lives.  XLP’s corporate objectives are fulfilled through a variety of projects in schools, on the estates where young people live, through mentoring and through summer camps and other trips.

To measure the achievement of these objectives, we have a range of effective systems for measuring outputs, outcomes and impact specific to individual projects. The longer term aim is to measure the overall impact we have on each individual young person through all the different ways in which we engage with them. The Performance Evaluation Manager will manage the existing evaluation systems and plan and implement, in conjunction with senior management, new systems to achieve the longer term aims.

The primary objectives of the role are:

To work with senior management to  implement the ongoing  performance evaluation strategy;

To ensure that all required data is effectively collected on each project and collated appropriately, and to manage staff for this purpose;
To analyse data so as to provide required levels of output, outcome and impact information for internal management and external reporting purposes.

You will be able to demonstrate a successful track record managing people and providing project management and administrative support in contexts relevant to this role. You will be highly motivated, have strong communications and influencing skills, be familiar with relevant process and protocols, and be able to easily relate to young people and the challenges and issues they face. You will also be a ‘completer/finisher’ who takes responsibility, ensures things get done and can determine when issues need to be escalated for a decision.

You will be able to demonstrate your ability to use IT to ensure that projects are delivered efficiently and record-keeping is maintained to a high level in a challenging environment.  In particular you will be highly competent with the use of databases and with Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook.
