Organization: British Red Cross
Country: Sierra Leone
Closing date: 29 Jan 2017

Refusing to ignore people in crisis

Freetown, Sierra Leone
Full Time
Fixed Term Contract (2 years)

Do you have substantial overseas experience in the organisational planning, monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning? If so, a new and exciting opportunity has arisen to work for the British Red Cross in Sierra Leone.

In this exciting role you will support Sierra Leone Red Cross (SLRCS) to strengthen their approaches to programme and organisational planning, monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning, supporting both short-term gains and long-term sustainable organisational development in line with the International Federation of Red Cross/Red Crescent’s National Society Development Framework.

British Red Cross has previously supported the Sierra Leone Red Cross in its organisational development through the establishment of organisational functions (HR and Finance), strengthening its branches, and in the development of key competencies (e.g. in planning, monitoring and reporting). The SLRCS PMER department was established in 2009. The role will provide the support to develop them further and to become self-sustainable. The success of the deployment will mean the role holder can leave the NS requiring only adhoc technical input from London based advisers and managing and implementing high quality PMEAL activities across their organisation.

The PMEAL Organisational Development delegate will report to the BRC Country Manager also based in Freetown, and will work closely with staff of SLRCS as counterpart for the SLRCS PMER Coordinator. The PMEAL Organisational Development delegate will work in coordination with the BRC Finance Development Delegate based in Freetown and will draw on the technical expertise from colleagues based at the BRC UK office in London, especially, the BRC PMEAL Advisor.

The successful candidate will have a strong technical understanding of the development of PMEAL systems and strategies, quantitative and qualitative monitoring and evaluation methods, data analysis, reporting and understanding of contemporary trends and debates in the field including innovative M&E. Additionally they need to have a sound understanding of project cycle management in international development/humanitarian programmes. The successful candidate will have proven experience of participatory programme or project design (e.g. including theory of change and logical framework development) and be able to develop strong working relationships across programmes, specialities and diverse cultural backgrounds. It is essential that they have good organisational skills including accuracy, consistency, attention to detail, tenacity and the ability to work under pressure.

We are a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We enable vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help people recover and move on with their lives.
