About Us

Kirklees Better Outcomes Partnerships (KBOP) is a subsidiary of Bridges Outcomes Partnerships, mission driven not for profit social enterprise.  We work with Government, community groups and specialist partners to design and deliver vital services that support people to improve their lives, in areas ranging from housing and employment to education and wellbeing.

We would love to hear from you if you are:

About the opportunity

As a Impact Analyst you will report into the Programme Director for Kirklees Better Outcomes Partnerships (KBOP), and work alongside eight expert delivery organisations as part of a homelessness prevention service.   Our vision is to enable and empower individuals to live a fullfilling and independent life.  This is an exciting opportunity for someone who really wants to make a social difference and is passionate about using data to change lives. 

 Key responsibilities will include:-

  • Identifying patterns, trends, and root causes to anticipate potential challenges/opportunities, and recommend solutions to the Programme Director and Delivery Partners, to mitigate these

  • Leading on the creation of high-quality analysis and drawing out insights which enables the development, improvement, and innovation within the service

    Provide coaching and support to the delivery partners on data-based decision making

  • Lead on impact management within projects and identify approaches which amplify impact and delivery innovations

  • Taking the lead on the assessment of our delivery partner operational processes and system inefficiencies and support them in developing more efficient processes which are streamlined and lead to an improvement in productivity

  • Ability to deliver more than the market expects: We believe that more is possible than the current system is achieving, and we need to demonstrate this in practice. This requires tenacity and relentless optimism.

  • Ability to think differently: We will not succeed by copying existing models or structures. Our projects and investments all require the team to think through each problem from first principles and find the most effective and efficient new solution in each case. This requires logic, analytical rigour, and a willingness to question assumptions. It also requires the desire to work in a dynamic environment, along with the ability to be solutions-focused and work in a small team.

  • Ability to build and maintain trust: We aim for the edge of what we believe is possible, from ourselves and our partners; this can only be achieved through mutual trust. Everything we do must be open to scrutiny and full transparency. This requires excellent interpersonal skills and absolute integrity.
