Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Monitoring and Evaluation Associate

The Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning and Quality Assurance (MELQA) team is currently leading the efforts to pivot program systems and processes to expand restricted project-based funding, promote an organizational culture of evidence-based & data driven decision making, build a Quality Assurance infrastructure to support programmatic credibility, and strengthen organizational capacity to engage in emerging approaches of M&E, Research & Learning, and Data Science. The M&E/ KM Associate will play an integral role in rethinking traditional approaches to knowledge management to become a stimulant to improved use of M&E processes and results.  
The M&E KM Associate supports the MELA QA team in meeting Orbis’s KM strategy of finding the precise alignment of technology infrastructure to facilitate sharing, processes to simplify dissemination and connecting people to ask, listen and share. The M&E/KM associate will support the operationalization of Orbis’s Learning Plan of organizing current efforts and new recent initiatives into five learning areas with the intention of collecting, codifying, and driving institutional learning towards continuous improvement. This is an exciting opportunity to help develop and operate a robust knowledge management environment that enables program staff to access and exchange information in an effective and timely manner.
The M&E/ KM Associate works within a matrixed team of global colleagues especially the program and technology teams, united by a common vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind – and we think data is key part of achieving this vision.
