Restacking the Odds (RSTO) helps to ensure that children and families can and do access a combination of high-quality, evidence-informed services where and when they need them.
It does this by building the capacity of service providers and community-based early years initiatives for collecting, understanding and using data to improve service quality, quantity and participation.
Earlier phases of the project focused on developing and evaluating a framework of evidence-based lead indicators to support the effective delivery of five key early childhood services available in most communities.
You will be joining RSTO in the project’s prototyping phase. This phase involves establishing a national community of users that routinely collect and act on RSTO indicators, and co-designing and implementing various prototypes to help ensure that data collection and reporting is owned and actioned at a local level.
About the role
Your primary responsibility will be to lead the development, execution, and monitoring of RSTO’s research, data and evaluation strategy. This will involve designing research protocols and applying methodologies to understand barriers, enablers, and solutions to data collection, reporting, and use of RSTO lead indicators at both a community- and service provider-level.
- proven relevant experience in developing, implementing, and undertaking, commissioning and reporting on research and conducting evaluations
- proven experience analysing and reporting quantitative and qualitative data and helping others understand data
- sufficient epidemiological skills to inform the details of each indicator to ensure they’re robustness
- a relevant PhD in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Public Health, Social Science).
