Research and Evaluation Coordinator – London EC2
Salary up to £23,000 p.a.
Who we are
pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) is the UK’s leading organisation helping schools to plan and teach children and young people how to manage their money now and in the future. A registered charity, it values its independence and integrity.
pfeg’s vision is a society in which all children and young people have the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage their money well, now and in the future. Our mission is to support education providers in giving children and young people the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage money. We do this by:
Influencing policy and practice
Supporting educators in teaching money matters with confidence
Providing education resources that will engage and inspire
The case for young people to leave school able to be in control of their money and to plan for the future has never been stronger. Children and young people encounter money earlier and earlier, spending and saving their pocket money, mobile phones, pre-paid cards and part time jobs. Crucial decisions have to be taken about student loans, getting a job or living independently. We owe it to the next generation to invest in their future.
pfeg and our partners will not rest until we have met the challenge of equipping our children and young people with the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in today’s society.
Main purpose and scope of the job:
With knowledge and experience in the fields of education and research, the Research and Evaluation Coordinator will be responsible for the co-ordination of the pfeg research and evaluation strategy. This will include promoting methodologies to evaluate internal programmes and projects and gathering existing research evidence and commissioning fresh research to enhance pfeg’s position as the national and international thought leader for financial education.
The role requires a person with an eye for detail and both the ability to analyse data and write reports. The successful candidate will be a proactive and organised person, mixing a collegiate approach with the ability to work alone.
This role is based in London, EC2
