AMURT London Monitoring and Evaluation officer

Are you a social researcher who would like to put your skills to use in a small charity and make a real difference? We are looking for an experienced researcher familiar with participatory evaluation who can help us demonstrate the impact and benefit of our services to the homeless and vulnerable communities in and around Hackney, Islington and Camden.

About AMURT UK

AMURT UK is a grassroots disaster relief and community development organisation. Our projects focus on food poverty, food waste and healthy eating. We produce and distribute hot meals and protein dense snacks to the homeless and other vulnerable communities in London. Services are run almost exclusively by volunteers. We also run Food For All health food shop and herbal dispensary, a trading company that donates its profits back to AMURT UK.

What you will be doing

The successful candidate would work alongside a small, dedicated team and be responsible for:

  • Assisting us in designing and planning a monitoring and evaluation strategy
  • Implementing high quality data collection methods to measure the impact of the work we do, the difference we make to people’s lives and to identify other needs of our beneficiaries
  • Analysing qualitative and quantitative research data, using appropriate analytical strategies and techniques
  • Evaluating the service based on the data you have collected and analysed
  • Make recommendations of how to improve the service

What we are looking for?

Ideally, the successful candidate will have the following experience:

  • At least 3 years of social research experience including participatory research
  • Experience in monitoring and evaluation work for charities
  • Real motivation to help a small local charity demonstrate their impact and improve their services

The difference you will be making

This role will help AMURT understand the real difference its services make to people’s lives and identifying ways to make them even more effective. It will also help ensure that AMURT is able to procure more funding for the future

Time

We are looking for someone who is able to commit to seeing this project through. We imagine it would be a few hours a week over some months. Most of our service and distribution work where you would have contact with our beneficiaries and volunteers is on Thursdays each week so
availability on a Thursday would be necessary.

Place

Our office at 3a Cazenove Road, N16 6PA and at our, and our partner’s, distributions in Holborn, Islington and Hackney

AMURT UK Food Production Volunteer – Energy balls

Do you live in Hackney, like meeting new people and handy in the kitchen? We are calling on volunteers to help us reach one of the capital’s most vulnerable groups. The homeless in London are some of the most at risk communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unable to self-isolate and with limited to no access to a healthy diet, we are providing them with nutritious ‘energy balls’ to help boost their immune system and fight off virus’.

About AMURT UK

The difference you will be making

The homeless are especially negatively impacted by COVID-19 crisis. Many have compromised immune systems, poor nutrition, and hygiene and are more susceptible to the virus and to developing complications. By helping us provide this nutritional support, you will be giving the homeless community a chance of a healthier and safer life.
