Job description

We are PEAS. We are an international education not-for-profit with the mission to ‘expand access to sustainably delivered, quality secondary education across Africa’. Our vision is for a world where all children enjoy an education that unlocks their full potential.

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.

You will be joining PEAS at an exciting time as as we have just launched our new global strategy, Growing PEAS Schools. Supporting All Schools. 2022-2026 

Yes, it is ambitious. Yes, it is exciting. Yes, it will be challenging.

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 Opportunity 

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. 

We want to make PEAS schools the best in Uganda and Zambia. At the same time, we also want to influence and support the wider education systems in the places where we’re working and globally by sharing our evidence and know-how.

As our Impact and Data Lead, you will steer our global monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) work, shaping how data is collected, analysed and used by our school leaders and supporting teams to drive better student outcomes.

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.

However, to be considered as our Impact and Data Lead, you will also need:

  • At least five years’ experience in an MEL or data analysis role
  • 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

A strong understanding of education data would be beneficial to your application, as would experience working in developing country contexts and across cultures.

Experience disseminating learning to diverse audiences and stakeholders would also be advantageous, as would experience mentoring or training staff, ideally from different countries and/or cultural backgrounds.

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’.


  • Salary of £36,000 - £45,000 DOE
  • 28 days’ annual leave + Bank Holidays
  • Matched contributory-based pension of up to 6%
  • Access to an Employee Assistant Programme
  • Flexible working
