|Job Title:||Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator|
|Employer:||International Rescue Committee|
PROGRAM SUMMARY: The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a private, non-political, non-profit, non-religious organization with its global humanitarian relief tasks for more than 80 years since 1933. Today, the IRC continues to bring swift emergency relief and development to the vulnerable and the displaced people in more than 40 countries.
The IRC officially began operations inside Afghanistan through a wide range of humanitarian and development programming to assist people affected by conflict, natural disaster, and poverty, including displaced people and returnees in 1998 and is registered with the Afghan Ministry of Economy. However, the IRC has supported the Afghan people in their fight against displacement and poverty since 1980.
SCOPE OF WORK: IRC has found, as have many other organizations, that data are often collected and compiled primarily to satisfy donor requirements; actually using those data to improve programming and make real-time decisions is much harder and rarer. IRC in Afghanistan is operates and annual portfolio of $14.2 million, through the implementation of over 15 grants in seven states, funded by 12 different donor agencies. In addition, IRC prioritizes partnership with local civil society organizations, and currently manages over 14 sub-grantees. IRC Afghanistan strives to produce quality proposals, reports and evaluations that illustrate measurement of contractual goals and activities, but also includes analysis of context and dynamic needs of beneficiaries at the community-level. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) today requires a modern grasp of technologies and tools that support the collection, management, presentation and use of this information. And it requires an understanding of the latest development thinking, including adaptive management, systems thinking, complexity, social impact, value for money, etc.
Leading the establishment and effective smooth running of an M&E Unit within the country program, the M&E Coordinator will provide strategic, technical, and managerial leadership for the IRC Afghanistan measurement efforts, including monitoring, evaluation, learning, and – above all – making decisions and taking action based on data.
