Monitoring & Evaluation Manager

We are looking for someone with experience in monitoring and evaluation processes, theories of change and social research to be our new Monitoring & Evaluation Manager. The person who takes on this role will lead on the creation, planning and delivery of our monitoring and evaluation, progressing our sector-leading impact measurement and reporting practices – described as “the best of the third sector” in Society Guardian. 

We have recently developed a new Theory of Change and will be finalising a new Evaluation Framework by early 2022, which details how we will measure our progress against these aims. As well as coordinating and managing monitoring and evaluation against these, there is an opportunity for the Monitoring and Evaluation Manager to continue to shape and develop these to ensure that we continue to measure our impact effectively and communicate it in a compelling way. 

The role is suitable for someone currently in an administrative or officer role who is keen to step up, or someone already working at manager level and involved with monitoring, evaluation and learning activities who is keen to develop their skills within a vibrant arts charity. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering company at the forefront of social change as it launches its next chapter of work in London, Manchester and Nottingham. 

Streetwise Opera is an arts organisation working with the homeless sector to inspire change and empower people to realise their own creative potential. We aim to transform lives by supporting people to make meaningful connections through the arts, rebuild social networks, improve wellbeing and develop new skills. 

We engage world-class artists to collaborate with diverse individuals affected by homelessness to create powerful works of art, and to positively impact how society views homelessness. And we use the arts to explore and innovate how homeless services can be best designed for individuals.
