Director, Evidence & Cost-Effectiveness

Application Help

There is an exciting opportunity at Evidence Action for a Director, Evidence & Cost-Effectiveness. The role is based in Washington, D.C. This role will lead the build-out of our organizational function focused on evidence and cost-effectiveness. Evidence Action is at an important inflection point in our organizational maturity, in which we are poised in the coming years to grow from having a small number of programs to many. Although we have been able to bring to bear strong evidence and cost-effectiveness capabilities to our current through a small number of in-house staff and external partnerships, we aim to expand that in-house expertise and develop a more cohesive organization-wide function that allows that deepened expertise to be efficiently and effectively leveraged by this growing portfolio of programs and tackling cross-program issues in a way that transcends programmatic siloes. The Director, Evidence and Cost-Effectiveness will build this nascent function in close collaboration with program and organizational leadership.
