Title: MEAL Manager (FFO/BMZ) Somali National
Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children’s lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.
We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.
Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We’re changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.
The MEAL Manager takes the overall responsibility of monitoring, evaluation, and knowledge management components of the BMZ and FFO portfolio and develop robust and comprehensive monitoring and evaluation plans for each project, develop M&E Frameworks and track key project milestones according to the project results frameworks. The MEAL Manager will also maintain the portfolio learning agenda and lead the research and evaluations under BMZ and FFO projects to ensure timely, rigorous and robust evidence that informs program designs, decisions and learning outcomes. The MEAL Manager will work closely with the Country Research team, Area MEAL managers, and Program team to demonstrate the impact of our work and value for money.
