This includes both face-to-face and online training, with the overall purpose of increasing the effectiveness of Alliance members. The postholder will lead on the creation of web-based toolkits and learning resources. As the organisation becomes a broader alliance of actors in the field of international development, we will further build our niche expertise of brokering links between organisations with complementary objectives as well as delivering an effectiveness programme in response to members’ needs. The Effectiveness & Learning Advisor will play an important role in these key work areas.
