Are you passionate about turning data and insight into actionable strategies? Help us to gather and use insight to create a fair society for everyone.

The charity is looking to appoint an exceptional individual to join our small and high-performing Research and Insight team. The Senior Research and Impact Advisor will play a key role in demonstrating our organisational impact and shaping our approach to internal and external evaluation.

The successful person will work across the organisation to embed the most meaningful, inclusive, and relevant ways in which to evaluate our activities. You will ensure that the past and future research, insight, and its outputs remain relevant and can be effectively used across the sector to help achieve fairness for disabled people in sport and activity.  

You will ensure our portfolio of research and insight continues to evidence the need to drive change and the factors that will enable that change. You will develop consistent, engaging, and accessible methods of evaluation to use across the organisation. These will inform audiences what we do and contribute to our robust evidence base. You will also ensure that each team’s outputs are well represented within our collective impact measures.
