About the role
As the Head of Research & Monitoring Unit (RMU), Scotland and Northern Ireland you will contribute to the strategic direction of Sustrans' evidencing work. You will provide strategic and operational leadership to RMU, working alongside the Director of Evidence and Insight and RMU’s Senior Leadership Team.
RMU conducts evaluation and research to assure the delivery of Sustrans impact and influence policy, investment and practice in support of Sustrans’ vision.
You will drive a culture change in Sustrans where impact is central to the operation, and this is understood and acted upon at all levels; you will identify areas of the Sustrans Scotland delivery portfolio in which impact can be improved; and you will empower colleagues to think creatively, pragmatically and collaboratively about developing outputs that are useable, objective, efficient and timely.
This senior leadership role, it is about evidencing and communicating the value of Transport Scotland’s investment in active travel, and demonstrating the value added by Sustrans’ role.
Acting as the senior-level interface between the RMU, Sustrans Scotland and Transport Scotland, you will enable the generation of high quality evidence, use this material to support service improvement in delivery by Sustrans in Scotland and partners, and engage Transport Scotland, providing justification of their investment and advocacy for future policy and investment decisions.
This role also covers similar activity Northern Ireland, but due to the balance of investment the role is more heavily focused on Scotland than on Northern Ireland. The brief is similar for Northern Ireland, but the delivery and evidencing portfolios are much smaller, with a focus on developing more evidencing and evaluation operations in NI.
We offer true hybrid working, a mix of home working and time within our new Hubs in Edinburgh or Glasgow, with flexible working patterns to suit individual circumstances. On occasion, there will be travel, and possible overnight stays required.
An experienced senior leader, you will build relationships easily at all levels; adapting your communication skills to engage and influence people, as well as a proven record of successful working strategically with a diverse range of partners. These skills and experience are key, as you will be the primary point of connection between Sustrans’ evidencing work and senior stakeholders within Transport Scotland.
You should have demonstrable experience of delivery to deadlines and within budget, including scoping, designing and effective implementation of project work and you should have an awareness of key data sources on active and sustainable travel, allowing you to advise colleagues at a strategic level.
It would be advantageous for you to have knowledge of the political and funding context for walking and cycling initiatives in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but it is not essential.
We aim to be a truly inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all parts of the community, in particular from under-represented groups. Sustrans has a long-term commitment to being a charity for everyone - reducing inequality, valuing diversity, enabling inclusion and ensuring all people are treated with dignity & respect.
