Fixed term contract to July 2021

£34,981 per annum

Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.

The International Policy and Programmes Directorate supports our aims by ensuring that we deliver the highest quality policy and programmes. We constantly enhance programme quality and effectiveness, raise income from institutional donors (like the British Government), and drive change through setting and influencing policy agendas. Sitting within the Directorate, the Development Programmes Unit (DPU) supports Country Offices by helping them to design high quality programmes, and by raising the funds from institutional donors needed to implement them.

We have implemented a successful DFID funded Girls Education Challenge (GEC) project in Sierra Leone.  GEC’s vision is to support marginalised girls and children with disabilities to improve learning outcomes, transition to the next school year and beyond; as well as create sustainability within the region. We are looking to recruit a Monitoring and Evaluation Officer to support the monitoring and evaluation processes for the project and measure results on time and to the required standard. 

In the role, you will provide M&E support, advice and guidance throughout the project, working closely with project teams based both in London and Africa. You will also provide support to community organisations, implementing partners and programme staff to systematically measure project progress, as well as developing and maintaining quality assurance.

You will have experience of collating and analysing monitoring and evaluation data from multiple sources and of supporting the design and delivery of training. You will have also developed and participated in monitoring processes, and have good knowledge of a range of qualitative and quantitative M&E approaches, methods and tools. Experience of living and working in a developing country and of strengthening capacity in M&E are highly desirable.

This role is based in London, but overseas travel will be required for up to 15% of the time.

The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Wednesday 26 June 2019

Interviews will take place on Wednesday 17 July 2019

Due to the nature of our work with children, we follow rigorous child protection policies and procedures in our recruitment process. As a result, some of our roles are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure by the Disclosure and Barring Service. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from joining us as an employee or volunteer; this will depend on the circumstances of any offences.
