Data and Impact Officer - TalentEd

Job description

This role is with the charity, TalentEd. 

TalentEd believes every young person deserves the support they need to flourish, regardless of background. They specialise in delivering high-quality tuition to disadvantaged young people. Their tutors are all qualified and experienced teachers, because they deliver the best learning for young people.

They are on an exciting growth journey. Since 2019 they have doubled the number of students we work with year-on-year for two years in a row, to over 1,000 students in 2020-21. In 2020 they were selected as one of only 33 organisations nationwide to deliver the government’s flagship National Tutoring Programme (NTP), and they recently launched a new programme – the Maths Masterclass Tutorials.

The outlook is bright. They expect to scale up significantly this year. They recently appointed former Chair of the Education Select Committee Neil Carmichael as Chair of their Board. They have a high-performing central team and are growing their pool of exceptional tutors.


Your primary responsibility will be collecting, analysing, and disseminating evidence about the impact we have. This covers a range of evidence types, from hard quantitative data on student attainment and attendance, to qualitative testimonials from our stakeholders and beneficiaries. These data will need to be analysed to understand the key insights and messages, and then condensed, synthesized and packaged to be shared. Dissemination is critical, and there are a range of different audiences that this is relevant for – our internal team, our school partners, students and their parents, and funders to name a few. Part of this will be leading on our Annual Impact Report. You will also have responsibility for our data governance, ensuring our use of data is in line with relevant legislation. Finally, you will support our Head of Operations with the implementation and development of data management and our CRM system (Salesforce).
