Race Equity Associates – Research & Evaluation will work alongside evaluators commissioned by YEF. We hope this will achieve two interconnected objectives:
• To support YEF in embedding a race equity perspective in all its research and evaluations.
• To increase the diversity of researchers contributing to the design and execution of YEF research and evaluations.
We’re interested in applicants from a range of sectors, including research, academia, funding, government and community engagement.
We’re particularly interested in hearing from applicants who have practical experience of informing and especially driving race equity within evaluations and research. Whilst we are interested in hearing from a people with a broad range of perspectives on evaluation and research, experience of working on impact evaluations, such as randomised control trials and quasi-experimental designs, would be an advantage.
Applicants can be freelancers, sole contractors or working as part of organisations, provided they can commit to a minimum involvement of five days on any evaluation or research project they are commissioned to support. For this work, YEF will compensate Race Equity Associates at a rate of £650 per day.
In this first phase, we’re keen to receive applicants from individual applicants who have strong knowledge of the UK funding, research or systems environment’.
