This is a rare opportunity for an established evaluation/advisory researcher with experience of international development to join this hugely well-respected agency. Their specialist sustainable development team uses data and analysis to underpin the decisions that shape sustainable development policy and programmes. Highly successful and with huge internal focus and support, they are hiring as the result of growth
With the aim of aiding progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the work this team does helps increase the effectiveness of development cooperation and improve policies and services. Projects are often international and focus on less developed countries. Very broad, they cover areas including economic growth, innovation, gender equality health, climate change and financial inclusion. Clients are equally wide-ranging including NGOs and UN agencies, and recent projects include evaluating programmes implemented by donors and international organisations, helping understand attitudes toward charitable giving and evaluating major reports that monitor progress of key initiatives and programmes.
The successful candidate will have a background in evaluation or advisory projects in the development sector, ideally both qual and quant experience with regard to programmes in the sector – although the client will consider specialists in either discipline, a proven ability to lead on research and evaluation proposals and keep them running to time and budget and be analytically minded with strong attention to detail. A strong interest/expertise in one or more of the areas relevant to the SDG agenda – ideally economic growth, innovation, gender equality, health or financial inclusion – is also important.
This prestigious social research team is well known and recognised for its robust methodologies, innovative approach and strategic outputs. A highly innovative and forward-thinking environment, this is a place for people who love to take ownership and make things happen – you are given autonomy, with support to do just that. The people here are genuinely curious and interested in what they do. The training on offer is second-to-none and development opportunities, here and overseas should you wish, are huge.
As a result of all this, people stay – they talk about being challenged, consistently offered new opportunities, being listened to, and enjoying being in a culture where anyone at any level can have an opinion, be heard and lead on projects.
