Aug 2, 2021

20hr/4x5h/week – £20k plus pension

APPLICATION DETAILS AT THE END.  DEADLINE 6PM ON  13TH AUGUST 2021. START DATE TBC.

We are looking for an experienced monitoring & evaluation officer to help us to measure the impact of our Hate Crime Project that is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.

This is a completely new role, that would suit someone looking to further their experience in project management and data analysis.

We need someone who can design methods of evaluation and adapt our database for this purpose in order and to create reports to show, for example, what difference we are making to our client’s wellbeing and resilience, in the service we offer.

You would be working closely with the two Hate Crime Co-ordinators, and the Director as well as our many volunteers to ensure the project meets its outputs and outcomes and reporting timelines.

The Project covers all strands (also referred to as protected characteristics) of hate crime which includes homophobic, race, faith, disability, gender identity, and transgender within the three boroughs of Ealing, Hounslow, and Hillingdon and builds on the success of a previous project in Ealing.  It involves the processing of hate crime enquiries, supporting and advising victims, liaising with the police, building a network within the three boroughs of stakeholders and law enforcement and other support groups, and managing caseloads where further work is required.

The aim is to increase reporting and resilience for victims of hate crime, and reduce isolation and vulnerability caused by being targeted because of the victim’s particular protected characteristic.

See below for job description.
