Head of Impact

West London Zone (WLZ) is a fast-growing, highly innovative social sector organisation, which works in partnership with schools and charities to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people in West London. In future, it has the potential for replication in other cities in the UK.

 

Our partner charities and organisations deliver specialist interventions, both in school and in the local community, which help to drive positive change and development in our children and young people to enable them to achieve better outcomes in life. These are planned and coordinated by our Link Workers, who are based in school settings, working with a cohort of children for a two-year programme.

 

We are looking for a Head of Impact to lead the development and performance of our impact model. This includes the strategic development of our delivery model and the design and coordination of our performance management processes and systems. The WLZ team has a culture of high performance and we are seeking a dynamic individual who will work well in a fast-paced environment.

The ideal candidate will have leadership experience, be able to mix technical and strategic aspects of programme design and performance management, and must possess the high levels of energy, integrity and creativity that this exciting role demands.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer (COO), the Head of Impact will provide leadership and oversight as follows:

 

  • Lead Programme Design and Impact Model Refinement, working closely with the Head of Link Work and Head of Partnerships, to ensure the WLZ programme as a whole is designed for impact for each participant
  • Lead on design, implementation and use of performance management processes, systems and data
  • Oversee the development and introduction of a new management information system
  • Develop Quality Assurance and Evaluation for the programme
  • Oversee all processes for delivery work and any improvements
  • Instilling and formalising a culture of learning with WLZ
  • Document and share internal knowledge – codification of our delivery model – such that WLZ is ready for fast pace replication across the Zone.
