About us: Changing Lives is a national charity that supports over 17,500 people each year. We are a well-respected, growing organisation dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable people across the UK.
We began as a soup run supporting people who were homeless in the North East over 45 years ago, and are proud to still have our main base and central office in the North East. Since 1970, our services have grown and developed to support people experiencing a wide range of personal challenges, including addiction and recovery programmes, employment guidance, help for people in prison or on probation, and support for people experiencing sexual exploitation or domestic abuse.
We’re looking for committed and compassionate professionals who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.
About you: Do you hold GCSE grade A-C in Maths and English? Do you have experience undertaking quantitative and/or qualitative research? Do you have experience of analysis of qualitative and/or quantitative data analysis? Do you have experience of using data analysis software (e.g. SPSS?)
