For the last ten years PEAS has built and operated quality secondary schools in under-served communities in Uganda and Zambia. We now have a network of 35 schools across Uganda and Zambia educating over 15,000 marginalised students.
We have strong external evidence to support our impact, happy funding partners and an excellent reputation within the international education sector. We are proud of our achievements to date, but we know we can achieve even more and in our next strategic period, we aim to do just that.

But if ever there was a time for action, the time is now. We know that inequitable access, poor quality and insufficient resources continue to prevent millions of children from enjoying an education that unlocks their full potential. This has only been exacerbated by the COVID pandemic, bringing even more barriers for the children and families struggling the most.
The Impact and Data Lead has the potential to make a significant impact during 2022, you will play a critical role positioning PEAS for a period of rapid growth.

Leading internal research projects to inform programme decision making, you will enable us to build our evidence base for how to deliver equitable, high-quality secondary education, scale our impact and share our findings with our partners.
You will provide support and troubleshooting to MEL Leads based in the countries we work in with the design, running and maintenance of systems that provide timely and relevant data, particularly assisting PEAS Uganda and Zambia teams.
Who we are looking for
No matter the role, we are looking for people who believe in what we do and how we do it; you will be passionate about transforming lives through education and aligned to our values.

- The ability to work as part of a team and on your own initiative
- Excellent communication and writing skills
- Strong data analysis and presentation skills
- Excellent MS Excel skills
- At least a BA or BSc degree in a discipline related to MEL or data analysis

Knowledge of the current development agenda and issues impacting education in Africa would also be favourable, as would experience of using data analysis software such as ‘R’.
