We are expanding our services, and to support this growth, we are looking for a Senior Consultant to join our Education, Skills and Employment practice. The practice provides research, evaluation and technical assistance services to EU institutions, in particular the European Commission (including DG EAC and DG EMPL), as well as other European organisations, such as the EUROFOUND, EIGE and CEDEFOP.
Our current portfolio of projects reflects the diversity of our work. Examples of our work in the area of education and skills include: Evaluation of Erasmus + (DG EAC) or comparative research on apprenticeships (Cedefop). In the area of employment our team often works on evaluations of programmes such as European Social Fund or studies to support transition of people to employment. While analysing education and employment issues in the EU we take into account gender considerations and analyse how different policies and programmes affect girls and boys, women and men. Additionally, our team currently delivers a number of gender-specific projects, including a study on female genital mutilation that estimates the girls at risk in the European Union (EIGE), and a study on administrative data collection on intimate partner violence (EIGE).
The position entails managing and contributing to projects around researching, development or review of public policies and programmes for our clients. You will be working on multiple projects at a time, interacting with all levels of ICF staff and external stakeholders. We are interested in individuals who can demonstrate a real interest in broader social policy topics combined with strong project management skills, business development skills, analytical skills and excellent report writing skills. A law degree would be a particular asset.
