NCVO is transforming the way it works. With a new strategic direction and leadership team, we are determined to work with our members so that charities and volunteering can thrive. As the country recovers from the covid-19 pandemic and renews itself, charities and volunteering aren’t just vital support systems for communities in need – they’re at the heart of how people want to lead their lives.
The networks and influencing team combines the research, policy, campaigns, and member engagement functions at NCVO, with the aim of improving policy and strengthening practice across the voluntary sector.
NCVO has a reputation for producing high quality and impactful research on the voluntary sector and volunteering. Our team of experienced quantitative and qualitative researchers initiate, conduct, and lead research projects with a range of partners and stakeholders.
You will lead the data collection, analysis, writing and communication of the UK Civil Society Almanac – the most comprehensive overview of the voluntary sector, charity finances, and workforce. The Almanac was crucial in securing the £750m support fund for charities at the start of covid-19.
This is an exciting time of innovation in the research team. In the years ahead, you will reimagine the Almanac’s purpose and methodology to ensure it provides timely and robust insight into what the voluntary sector is, how it works, and how it is changing.
As a member of the research team, you will plan, delivery and publish major research publications that help organisations, policymakers, and funders respond, adapt, and change the way they work, such the Road Ahead, Time Well Spent, and the Clinks State of the Sector.
With a strong background in quantitative research methods – and knowledge of the voluntary sector – you will ensure our research responds to the needs of our members and is based on their insight. You will bring fresh ideas to established pieces of research, with the freedom to innovate and modernise voluntary sector data.
You will be an active member of the network and influencing team, supporting our research work, engaging directly with NCVO members, managing external relationships, and strengthening our influencing work with government. With strong inter-personal skills, you will work in a collaborative way with other teams, partner organisations, and stakeholders.
NCVO is fully committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in our sector. We want this to be reflected in the diversity of the people who work for us and we welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and identities. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented in NCVO. As part of our commitment to employing disabled people, all disabled candidates who meet the minimum requirement for all competencies on the person specification, will be guaranteed an interview.
If you have access needs or require reasonable adjustments as part of the recruitment process, please let us know.
