ICF is a leading provider of evaluation services to the UK Government, EU institutions and international organisations. We apply leading-edge evaluation, research and analytical methodologies to help our clients optimise the delivery of their programmes and maximise their impacts.

Growth in demand for evaluations of research and innovation (R&I) programmes means that we are looking to recruit an experienced evaluator with expertise in this area of public policy and an understanding of how to assess the impacts, value for money and process aspects of public investments in R&I.

We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have expertise in evaluation of research programmes focused on the environment, agriculture, animal/plant health and/or the food chain.

This role offers you the chance to develop your career within a global business that takes a collaborative approach to working with our unrivalled network of experts here in the UK. You'll join a team that's focused only on delivering positive impact. Respect for new ideas and expertise means we're always ready to embrace differences. We're never afraid to ask if there is a better way to do something.

In your new role you will:

  • Help to design, manage and delivery a portfolio of evaluation studies focused on research and innovation programmes, with a particular focus on programmes relating to food, agriculture, and the environment.
  • Contribute to the development and delivery of our wider evaluation service offer for the UK Government.
  • Provide technical, management and development support to colleagues who are at an earlier stage of career progression.

You will come to us with:

  • Experience of the design, management and delivery of R&I programme evaluations for organisations such as UK Government departments, Innovate UK or UKRI.
  • If possible, a proven interest in and experience of programmes relating to the food chain, agriculture, animal/plant health, and/or environmental research.
  • A strong understanding of the theory and application of impact and/or process evaluation methods to research and innovation programmes, working in accordance with Magenta Book guidance.
  • Experience of use of research metrics, bibliographic analysis and other approaches relevant to R&I evaluation.
  • A familiarity with the process of building theories of change.
  • Experience of work in a consulting or similar project-based context.
  • Project management and commercial skills.
  • An understanding of how to work effectively in teams.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

This role will be positioned as a Senior Consultant or Managing Consultant level depending on experience.
