About Us

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement.

We do this by summarising the best available evidence in plain language for busy, time-poor teachers and senior leaders, generating new evidence of ‘what works’, and what doesn’t work to improve teaching and learning, and supporting teachers and senior leaders across the country to use this evidence to achieve the maximum possible benefit for children and young people.

The Role

As the Head of Policy, you will play a pivotal role in our policy development and operation. You will liaise with the DfE and other national and international policy organisations, and leading evidence projects that have a direct relationship with the Department for Education. These latter currently relate to the key ‘evidence guardianship’ role that the EEF has adopted, specifically in relation to the Early Career Framework (ECF) and National Professional Qualifications (NPQs).

The Head of Policy will also lead on projects related to overall EEF strategy; policy issues; and complex issues which span a number of internal teams.

- To act as a representative and ambassador of the EEF in key meetings across stakeholder groups
- Deep knowledge of the education sector and a demonstrated commitment to the aims of the EEF
- Extensive experience of working in a senior education policy or research related role
- Exceptional interpersonal and written communication skills, evidenced by close, successful relationships with policy makers and senior education stakeholders
- A proven track record of leading, motivating and managing the performance and development of a high-performing team, encouraging enterprise in others
- The capacity to prioritise and work across multiple projects, delivering a high volume of quality work to meet deadlines
- A proactive, flexible and pragmatic approach, with an ability to balance a commitment to rigour with accessibility and impact

What you can expect from us

- Salary of c£55,000+ per annum DOE
- Flexible start and end working times (core hours between 10am and 4pm)
- 27 days’ holiday per annum plus Bank Holidays
- Pension matched with a 5% employer contribution
- Life insurance cover
