We are recruiting an Administrative Assistant to join our growing team at Matter of Focus.

This is a new post to support the administrative work across the organisation. You will play a key role in the client journey team and across the organisation, sometimes working independently on tasks set by the team, often working collaboratively to help the team develop ideas and solve problems.

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.
