Manager, Evaluation & Impact - Sydney / Melbourne

The Reach Foundation


  • Great research skills including quantitative and qualitative analytical techniques
  • Interested in and understand the issues that affect young people
  • Great at conveying data and findings in a highly credible and understandable way for different audiences

An exciting part-time (0.6 FTE) role exists for a highly-skilled professional to join the Reach team in our Sydney/Melbourne office.

Being young is not without its struggles. Today’s world is pretty complex and young people can experience a bunch of challenges that adults might not be able to relate to. One of the biggest hurdles is just having the confidence and support to be who they want to be.

There are currently over 4 million young people living in Australia, and Reach works with thousands of them a year. We have the best of the best working for us; designing and delivering workshops in schools and the community. Our workshops are 100% youth-led by our young crew, from design through to delivery, and the community we create out of these workshops is one that allows for deeper connection, a sense of belonging, and the dispelling of judgements. A preventative, instead of having to focus on symptoms in adult life.


Supporting young people to discover their power.


You are an experienced and passionate professional who will expand our evaluation approach, and increase our knowledge and understanding of Reach’s impact. You will be responsible for managing Reach’s evaluation framework across all Reach programs. This includes systematic collection of relevant data, analysis and evaluation of workshop impact, and compelling reporting to inform program delivery and attract further external support.

Some of the key selection criteria for this role are (see position description for full details):

  • Essential: Tertiary qualification or higher in relevant discipline
  • Highly desirable: Post-graduate experience in evaluation and impact methods 
  • Highly desirable: Demonstrated ability to transform data into engaging marketing content 
  • Essential: Experience working with/in partnership with young people and interest in and understanding of issues that affect youth.

Please note: Any offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory Working with Children check identifying Reach as your employer prior to starting in the role, and National Criminal History Check.

Reach is a child safe organisation and is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive community of staff, crew and volunteers - a place where we can be ourselves and succeed on merit. As well as a comprehensive range of policies to protect the safety of young people, we offer a range of family friendly, flexible and inclusive employment policies to ensure that all people we work with are respected and valued, whatever their background.

Role starting as soon as possible.
