Fixed term project funded until March 2022
About the project
It is a very exciting time for Leonard Cheshire’s International Team with our ambitious but well-planned growth strategy beginning to gain momentum. We are looking for people to join us on this journey of growth.
Leonard Cheshire’s new innovative programme aims is to improve well-being and inclusion of people with disabilities in low and middle-income settings. This will be achieved through international development actors who are able to access new, innovative and effective approaches to supporting people with disabilities focusing on jobs and livelihoods using improved high-quality data, evidence and technical support on disability inclusion being routinely used for decision making.
The project based in Bangladesh and Kenya is designed to develop, test, validate, and share learning from interventions that will directly improve access to waged employment in the private sector for women and men with disabilities. It will demonstrate the potential for change by identifying the most successful interventions that strengthen the disability ecosystem.
You will have strong written and verbal communication skills, experience in MEL methodologies and be able to plan strategically, bringing great understanding of quantitative and qualitative. You’ll have strong experience in data collection, management and analysis. You will work alongside our Programme Managers and consortium partners and will lead on the implementation of Monitoring and Evaluation framework. You’ll further ensure that all consortium members are consulted, trained and using the agreed monitoring tools. You will provide technical support and build capability and capacity of others enabling them to do the same.
