Pact is recruiting a Monitoring and Evaluation Manager for an upcoming five-year, USAID-funded vulnerable children and adolescents (VCA) program – Service Delivery for Vulnerable Children and Adolescents (SDVCA). SDCVA seeks to improve the resilience and health outcomes of vulnerable households in four provinces in Zambia with the highest HIV burdens, while strengthening the Government of the Republic of Zambia’s (GRZ) social protection platform so that the GRZ eventually provides the majority of services to VCA. The program is intended to provide evidence-based services that will deliver measurable results for VCA and their caregivers in the following activities:
The Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) Manager will supervise staff experts and oversee all program activities related to monitoring, evaluation, research, and learning (MERL) and knowledge management. S/he will be responsible for supporting comprehensive and accurate data collection, analysis, reporting, and knowledge management by both Pact and partner organizations to improve project implementation. S/he will institute M&E best practices for project monitoring, data collection, and quality, and project reporting and learning, including Collaborative, Learning, and Adapting processes (CLA). S/he will provide technical support to the design and implementation of monitoring systems and other data systems, including a project-level database that supports policy and programmatic decision-making by project and external stakeholders. S/he will support the training of partners on M&E procedures, roles and responsibilities and will play a key role in data management, data analytics, and knowledge sharing and learning from project data. This position is contingent upon award.
