United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Officer – Women’s Economic Empowerment

Organization: Oxfam GB
Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Closing date: 25 Dec 2016


This post is part of the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Team, under the Programme Quality (PQ) Team and has a specific focus on Women’s Economic Empowerment programming, supporting programmes managed by the Economic Justice (EJ) Team. Both the PQ Team and the EJ team are part of Oxfam’s Programme Strategy and Impact Team.

The vision of the Programme Strategy and Impact Team (PSIT) is to drive high quality programming and learning within Oxfam, develop more integrated approaches to programming by networking across teams and offices and increase the influence of Oxfam’s leadership on policy and practice internally and externally so as to increase Oxfam’s impact on poverty alleviation.

The Programme Quality Team’s purpose is to support Oxfam to improve programme quality and impact, and strengthen its contribution to transformational change. This post will join a number of monitoring, evaluation and learning specialists who are part of the PQ Team.

The Economic Justice Team works to enable the transformation of livelihoods for women and men living in poverty in ways that contribute to resilient development. Empowerment and economic equality is at the heart of all we do. In line with the Oxfam Strategic Plan this team supports delivery of change goal 4, fair and sustainable food systems and 5, fair share of natural resources. Our support is focused on three strategic themes – empowering women and supporting smallholders in agriculture; resilient development and climate change adaptation; and resilient livelihoods and food security. This role will have a strong matrix relationship with the Economic Justice team, and in particular contribute to the Women’s Empowerment and Care (WE-Care) programme. WE-Care supports a variety of approaches to recognising, reducing, and re-distributing unpaid care work as well as representing carers in decision-making to reduce heavy and unequal care and contribute to women’s empowerment.


Oxfam Great Britain (OGB) seeks to recruit an experienced MEL practitioner who can provide high quality technical advice in the area of Women’s Economic Empowerment. We’re looking for someone who can work with multiple and diverse stakeholders, supporting them to apply monitoring and evaluation for learning and accountability and foster a culture of shared, real-time learning. Candidates should have strong technical skills on research and M&E methods, while also bringing a commitment to and understanding of gender justice and women’s empowerment issues.

The WE-Care programme spans a number of thematic areas and includes a range of strategies, so we are looking for someone who can work flexibly and pragmatically to design and support M&E frameworks across a range of work. Candidates will need to develop and maintain strong relationships with colleagues in PSIT and in countries, looking to add value to their work.
