• Oversee all aspects of our qualitative and quantitative research work, including surveys, workshops and panels, from design through to implementation and reporting.

• Manage relationships with external evaluation partners e.g. Universities or research agencies. • Lead on the development of engaging and accessible internal and external storytelling and impact reporting for key partners, supporters and trustees, including production of an overarching annual impact report and other communication materials.

• Build inclusion practices into our monitoring, evaluation and research activity and promote good practice across our system partners.

• Inform the research, monitoring and evaluation aspects of our varied funding applications, promoting a standardised approach wherever possible.

• Contribute to sector research undertaken by our national partner organisations including, for example, Activity Alliance and the Sport for Development Coalition.

• Maintain an up to date understanding of best practice in impact monitoring and evaluation within the sports, sport for development and charity sectors.

• Contribute to research activity as part of Access Sport’s System Change consultancy/ advisory work.

• Support the monitoring and evaluation of Access Sport’s EDI action plan, which may include occasional internal organisational surveys and consulting with external partners.

• Support other ad hoc organisation wide research to support internal process improvements and governance.
