World Vision
Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, South East (On-site)
£30,763 per annum
Job description

6 Months Fixed Term – (There may be a possibility of an extension)

Improve the impact of programmes transforming millions of lives.

World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We are also proud to be voted one of the Top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For’ ranked in 9th place for 2016.

As an experienced international development or humanitarian professional, you have real passion for design, monitoring and evaluation.

Delivering real change for millions of children in the hardest places in the world, World Vision brings governments, local authorities, community groups, businesses and individuals together to tackle the causes of injustice and poverty – and enhance eight million lives in almost 100 countries.

In this key position, you will help ensure that our programmes operate to the highest standards, enabling us to improve our impact and attract additional sources of funding. In particular, you will provide DM&E support to designated projects whilst creating a robust evidence base for future decision-making, so you will stretch your analytical skills to the full. This will involve maintaining up-to-date country knowledge and awareness of evolving best practice, and you will constantly monitor the effects of differing approaches on outcomes for children.

Your judgment and interpersonal skills will be as important as your technical ability, and you should be fully capable of engaging with a variety of audiences and communicating effectively the impact of World Vision’s work. You will be qualified to degree level, well versed in the challenges facing developing countries and knowledgeable regarding the quality and impact agenda, with real drive and determination to make a difference. A good command of Spanish, French or Portuguese would be extremely useful, although this is not essential.

Finally, you will be ready to bring our Christian ethos to life in everything you do and happy to spend up to a quarter of your time travelling to the designated countries.
