About School Food Matters
School Food Matters (SFM) exists to teach children about food and to improve children’s access to healthy, sustainable food during their time at school. We provide fully funded food education programmes to schools. Our experience delivering these programmes informs and strengthens our campaigns, bringing the voices of children, parents and teachers to government policy.
Funded by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity (GSTC), this five year programme will work with 80 primary and secondary schools in Lambeth and Southwark to tackle childhood obesity. Building on our pilot programme, we have developed a variety of activities to improve the food on offer throughout the school day. We will consider the needs of each school and offer support accordingly. This will include support to develop and implement food policies and/or to introduce healthier food to after school and breakfast clubs.
About the role
SFM is looking to appoint a suitably qualified manager to lead the monitoring, evaluation and learning of the Healthy Zones programme. This role will be key to understanding the effectiveness and impact of the programme and building an evidence base of what works to inform future changes in practice and policy.
They will set up, lead and champion learning processes so that they can support project teams to use findings effectively.
The role will involve overseeing and providing support to the external evaluator (ICF) as well as coordinating with various partners; securing access to relevant project information and documentation; collating and cleaning data; leading the review of evaluation outputs; and documenting the lessons learned throughout the process to inform the overall evaluation. It is critical that this person can work well with the external evaluator to share formative learning with the project team and our funder (GSTC) to aid and improve programme delivery.
We are seeking someone with an eye for detail, proven experience conducting research and data analysis, an ability to effectively communicate evaluation findings to a range of audiences, and a track record of developing strong relationships with partner organisations.
