Evaluation Programme Manager
The Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education (TASO) is a new affiliate What Works Centre for higher education. TASO’s vision is to eliminate equality gaps in higher education and our mission is to improve lives through evidence-informed practice. We are seeking an Evaluation Manager to help build our research programme which is focused on developing a better understanding of the most effective approaches in widening participation and student success.
The Evaluation Manager will ensure that externally commissioned TASO-funded evaluations are designed and conducted to a high standard. They may also conduct in-house research and analysis projects, including randomised controlled trials and quasi-experimental designs. They will lead on the development of guidance and resources designed to support evaluation activity in higher education, with a particular focus on impact evaluation and causal inference. They will also be involved in work to collate, translate, and disseminate evidence and evaluation guidance, via resources, training, events and collaborative projects.
The successful candidate will join a growing team of staff who are taking TASO forward as it spins out of King’s College London to become an independent charity. This team is building many of the charity’s systems and processes from the ground-up. The role is suited to an individual who is used to working in a small team and who is highly motivated by social impact.
Please note that TASO is being incubated within King’s College London while staff are recruited and during the charity registration process. However, TASO will transition out of King’s over the coming months (see job pack for more details).
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract to 28 February 2022

About the Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education.
TASO is a new affiliate What Works Centre for widening participation and student success, funded by the Office for Students (OfS). TASO is being established by a consortium of King’s College London, Nottingham Trent University, and the Behavioural Insights Team. It is being incubated within the King’s Policy Institute in the establishment phase, while staff are recruited and TASO is being registered as a charity. It is anticipated that TASO will spin out of King’s by the end of 2020, at which time all TASO staff will transfer from King’s to the new entity.
