Education Monitoring and Evaluation Manager

The Opportunity
As we start the implementation of our new global strategy, we are recruiting an Education Monitoring and Evaluation Manager who will work closely with colleagues across the world to further our global priorities for education. These priorities are that we work towards ensuring that the most deprived children in the world:
  • Develop the foundations they need to learn successfully at school;
  • Learn to read and write in the first three years of school and do so in an environment that promotes wellbeing and safety;
  • Do not have their learning interrupted by humanitarian crises.
We believe that we will achieve the most impact for children by innovating, using evidence to develop and refine coherent and consistent approaches for our areas of work, proving them through 'Signature Programs' that demonstrate the impact of our approaches at a national level.
As our Monitoring and Evaluation Manager you will work with the Head of Thematic Support to ensure that we have a clear understanding of the impact of our education activities; you will also have significant responsibilities to support the development of either the Early Childhood Care and Development or the Education in Emergencies areas of our work.
In order to be successful you will have experience of monitoring and evaluating programmes across large organisations, and of delivering education programmes in developing countries and/or in humanitarian contexts. You will be able to think creatively and be used to building personal networks in a large international organisation. You will also know how to support policy and management committees, and bring experience of conducting or overseeing research (preferably both qualitative and quantitative).
We are flexible as to where the role is based, but it is not an international position: the successful candidate will be based in their home country, albeit with significant international travel. The role offers a competitive package in the context of the sector.

We employ approximately 17,000 people across the world. We work in 120 countries to support the most deprived children to survive, learn and be protected. We campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise children's rights and to ensure their voices are heard.
