Voice is an innovative grant facility to support rights holders and groups facing marginalisation or discrimination in their efforts to exert influence in accessing productive and social services and political participation. Voice operates in a context where civic space and power is shifting at a fast pace, and often closing rather than opening. Where the narrative is negative and underlining marginalisation and vulnerability, rather than the dreams and successful steps made towards a better, more inclusive world. Voice is implemented in ten countries in Africa and Asia: Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia and the Philippines
An initiative from the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Voice is implemented by a consortium between Oxfam Novib and Hivos.
The role of Roving Monitoring and Evaluation (MEL) Officer is a new role within the decentralised Coordination Team, based in Manilla, Nairobi and The Hague. Based on the learnings of the 2019 Mid-Term Review, it was decided to decentralise the global MEL officer into two regional roles: one for Africa and one for South East Asia. These decentralised roles would ensure closer liaisons with the country teams in realising their M&E plan, as part of the global results framework.
As Voice’s Roving M&E officer, you develop plans and reports related to the progress and impact of the Voice program, in line with the global results framework. In close liaison with the country and regional teams of Oxfam (Novib) and Hivos respectively you will coordinate and lead on information gathering and impact measurement in East and West Africa. Together with your colleague in South East Asia and your colleagues in country and regional offices, you develop tools for tailor-made assessments, monitoring and evaluations. You also ensure processing monitoring information in the programme registration system. Furthermore, you lead on in-country implementation of the Outcome Harvesting, change stories’ and other relevant qualitative data gathering processes, in close collaboration with the South East Asia Roving M&E Officer and with your colleagues in country and regional offices.
Reports to: Linking and Learning Coordinator
You have a relevant academic education in the field of social studies or equivalent in work experience. You have at least 3 years of experience with M&E, preferably in developing countries. You are a well organised, independent, decisive and energetic person. You perform quality tasks independently. You have affinity with data monitoring and administration. Your communication skills are excellent both oral and in writing in English and French. Finally, we expect you to have good social interaction skills and affinity with working on diversity and inclusion. Nothing about us Without Us or NOW-Us! is (y)our mantra!
