Salary commensurate with experience

Children's Health Fund is committed to ensuring access to high-quality healthcare for children and youth living in this country’s most under-resourced communities. We do this through the development and support of innovative, comprehensive primary care programs; reducing the impact of public health crises - like the coronavirus; and the promotion of health and wellbeing. Our two major initiatives are the National Network and Healthy and Ready to Learn. The National Network comprises 25 pediatric clinical programs we support that bring comprehensive primary care directly to children and youth where they live, learn, and gather. Healthy and Ready to Learn partners with NYC public elementary schools to improve their school climate, through technical assistance, professional development workshops, the Resource and Training Center website, and school-based interventions. 


POSITION OVERVIEW: 


Reporting to the Director of Research, Evaluation, & Learning at Children’s Health Fund, the REL Officer will join a small & dynamic team of 2 evaluators who leverage data and evaluation to hone the organization’s programs and impact. The REL team focuses on advancing the data culture and shifting the organization towards an outcomes-based, data-driven approach. In 2021, the team’s strategic goals center on data maturity and include building a network of external research partnerships, creating an online “data stories” platform to showcase our impact, and developing the organization’s data infrastructure to utilize outcome data. As an organization, Children’s Health Fund is increasingly focused on addressing the root causes of health disparities in the predominantly black and brown communities we serve. The REL Officer will actively contribute to anti-racism work within the REL team and across the organization.


The REL Officer will be a thought leader in all components of the team’s work and lead sections of the execution of our strategic priorities and daily operations. The Officer will lead a portfolio of monitoring and evaluation projects from start to finish, including evaluation planning and proposal writing, setting up data collection mechanisms, monitoring data and partnering with stakeholders, and reporting back results internally and externally. Working across programmatic teams, the Officer will be a critical team member who will bring their flair and determination to an organization at a pivotal time in its development of a proactive data culture.


This is currently a fully remote position but will be based in Children’s Health Fund’s offices in New York City once the offices reopen. This is an excellent opportunity for a recent Master’s graduate with at least 2 years of experience in evaluation who is interested in exploring a career at the intersection of evaluation and public health.

  • Lead a portfolio of monitoring and evaluation projects independently
  • Devise evaluation plans and logic models in partnership with program staff
