We are recruiting an Evaluation Consultant to join our growing team at Matter of Focus.

We need someone who has a passion for helping organisations use evidence to drive change, along with strong facilitation and evaluation/research skills. This is a new post working with and for our clients who are public service organisations across sectors, or voluntary organisations, or research centres. This is a mix of service delivery, policy or practice influencing, systems change, partnerships, and other organisations. You will be working across multiple clients and projects on different sizes and scales

We believe that evaluation is best when it is used for learning, improvement, reflection, and storytelling. Our approach builds on logic models or theories of change as tools for planning, organising, and reflecting on data. We want our clients to have the evidence they need to deliver as best they can for people and communities.

Matter of Focus was set up in 2017 by Ailsa Cook and Sarah Morton and is a consultancy and tech company. We are a B Corporation, on a mission to help organisations use data and evidence to improve outcomes for people and communities.

We work with organisations to:

  • help them understand and work meaningfully with the outcomes or impacts that matter to them
  • support them to use data and evidence effectively
  • use our tools and techniques to track change.

We have a highly refined process of working with clients that includes setting out outcome maps, identifying and improving data, and reporting that is based on our extensive experience, and builds on Contribution Analysis. This is brought to life through our software OutNav.
