The UK Evaluation Society

Now Recruiting – UKES Executive Director

We are seeking a dynamic, passionate individual to take on the role of Executive Director at the Society.

About the Role

You will lead a small but highly engaged staff team to deliver on the Society’s activities, build its reach and membership, and develop a long-term strategy for the organisation, developing partnerships and projecting the UK Evaluation Society in both the domestic and the international community.

This role requires a mix of operational and strategic engagement.

The Executive Director will work closely with the Council and President to set the agenda in line with the Society’s priorities. This is an exciting time for the Society.

We seek an Executive Director who relishes and embraces the challenges and excitement of leading change.  Someone who is a strong, timely, quality deliverer, and who has the passion and energy to help build The Society into a sustainable, growing and resilient organisation with a continued good reputation, which in turn can give evaluative thinking and practice greater profile in the UK.

A ‘can do’ problem solving approach will be an important asset.
