Lebanon: Monitoring & Evaluation Manager

Organization: Pursue
Country: Lebanon
Closing date: 08 Nov 2016

PURPOSE OF POSITION:

Pursue, a member of the ARK Group, is a Lebanon-based development consultancy committed to empowering local communities and beneficiaries in conflict, post-conflict, and fragile areas through the provision of evidence-based programmatic interventions, policy recommendations and training services.

Pursue’s approach relies on combining mixed-methods research with strong, consistent engagement with local communities and stakeholders to bridge the gap between the aspirations of local communities and the priorities of governmental and multilateral actors, thus informing the design and implementation of relevant programming. Utilising innovative quantitative and qualitative social science methodologies to generate data, we analyse and synthesise results, brief clients and beneficiaries, deliver interventions and measure impact.

Pursue will be delivering on behalf of DFID a multi-year programme in Lebanon in support of Palestinian youth. This programme will improve their social and economic participation, as well as enhance the youth role in governance whilst reducing the likelihood of young Palestinians resorting to negative coping strategies. Whilst this position is subject to funding, Pursue is currently delivering this programme, which has been underway for a number of years.

The highly innovative, Palestinian-designed programme has delivered demonstrable impact within the camps and contributed to both Palestinian welfare and the stability of Lebanon.

· Develop, in coordination with other team members monthly, quarterly or annual reports depending on project requirements.

· Disseminate evaluation findings and project results to donors and other stakeholders as agreed with Pursue and ARK management.

Requirements:

· Five years progressively responsible M&E experience in a development/stabilisation setting.
