TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) is funded by a range of development agencies with the aim of growing prosperity in East Africa through trade. We believe that enhanced trade contributes to economic growth, a reduction in poverty and subsequently increased prosperity. The first phase of TMEA runs to mid-2017 and we expect this to be followed by a second phase from 2017 to 2024.

This includes performance monitoring against agreed outcome and impact indicators and reporting arrangements ensuring integration with risk, financial management and programme performance. The post requires highly-developed and effective interpersonal and client liaison skills to ensure that TMEA’s teams and partners are satisfied with the quality of our results monitoring and evaluation frameworks.
The ideal candidate will possess a post graduate degree preferably Economics, Development Studies, International Trade, Management or Evaluation. S/he must possess a minimum of ten years’ experience in managing monitoring and evaluation activities in both public and private sectors, seven of which should be in monitoring and evaluation and communications in Southern and East African countries.
