Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
About the role: This is an 18 month new role with unaccompanied terms and conditions based in Kinshasa with frequent visits to consortium programme areas.
The salary package is €34,106 to €37,895 and benefits
The Consortium comprises the following agencies: Concern Worldwide as the lead agency, Action Contre le Faim (ACF); Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED); Catholic Relief Services (CRS); and Solidarités International. The Consortium is funded by UKaid (DFID). Concern Worldwide leads the Consortium through a Kinshasa-based Consortium Coordination Unit (CCU) made up of the Consortium director, a compliance manager, a communication, learning and advocacy coordinator, and an M&E manager.
You will report directly to the WASH Consortium Director and work closely the CCU team and the Consortium partner agencies.
We would like you to start June 2017
The WASH Consortium M&E manager will ensure that Concern’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) processes are timely, complete and reliable data, by coordinating M&E across the different agencies of the Consortium according to established frameworks. The role will also ensure timely, complete and reliable reporting, by keeping track of the advancement of the Consortium’s activities, by reviewing internal reports and by redacting external reports. The manager will contribute to internal and external coordination, by co-coordinating internal technical working groups, by contributing to Consortium-organised sector events and by liaising with WASH sector actors in specific forums.
You will be responsible for:
Monitoring and evaluation (about 60% of the time)
Since late 2016, the Consortium manages its M&E data through a database management system, based on iFormBuilder for data collection and users’ management and on Zoho Reports for data storage, analysis and report generation. All data in the system are “live”.
Reporting (about 25% of the time)
Context: The Consortium agencies report to the CCU on a quarterly basis. Programme reporting comprises a narrative report and an Activity Tracker update per agency. The CCU in turn reports to the donor on a bi-yearly basis, highlighting the key accomplishments, successes and challenges in the last period and showing the cumulative progress against the targets. Financial reporting and forecasting accompanies all programme-related reporting.
Coordination (about 15% of the time)
Context: Programme focal points of all Consortium agencies coordinate through quarterly Technical Working Group meetings, and the finance/compliance focal points do the same separately. The Consortium’s Governance Board meets on a quarterly basis too. An M&E group -part of the Technical Working Group- meets on an ad-hoc basis. The Consortium organises sector-wide events (External Technical Reviews) twice a year.
