ABOUT Relief International.

Relief International (RI) is a leading nonprofit organization working in 16 countries to relieve poverty, ensure well-being and advance dignity. We specialize in fragile settings, responding to natural disasters, humanitarian crises and chronic poverty.

Relief International combines humanitarian and development approaches to provide immediate services while laying the groundwork for long-term impact. Our signature approach — which we call the RI Way—emphasizes local participation, an integration of services, strategic partnerships and a focus on civic skills. In this way, we empower communities to find, design and implement the solutions that work best for them.

Relief International includes the four members of the RI Alliance in the USA, UK, France, and Belgium. Under our alliance agreement, we operate under a single, shared management structure with one CEO and one Board of Directors.

About our Programs.

RI is active in 16 countries around the world, including some of the most fragile: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen.

RI employs 7,000+ staff and auxiliary workers

97% of staff are in-country nationals

RI spent $125 million in 2019 on our programs.

RI invests in four broad program sectors: Economic Opportunity, Education, Health, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). We design our programs to incorporate The RI Way: local participation, integrated programming, the development of civic skills, and partnerships including with local NGOs, governments, and the private sector.

About TaRL Africa

TaRL Africa is a new international initiative formed between education NGO Pratham and the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), who have been working together to develop cost-effective, scalable education programs for more than 15 years. These efforts have led to the development of an education program now called Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL).TaRL is an educational approach that aims to build foundational skills in math and reading for children before leaving primary school. When TaRL is implemented within government systems, TaRL teams help ensure that everyone in the system remains focused on improving children’s learning outcomes. Simple assessments, onsite mentoring and support, as well as reviews at different levels of the school system, all contribute to the effectiveness of the program.

Job Description

TaRL Africa seeks to recruit a Measurement and Monitoring (M&M) Manager to manage all measurement, monitoring, and review activities for TaRL Africa. Assessments, Mentoring, and review are critical components of a TaRL program, and therefore the M&M Manager will play a crucial role in strengthening TaRL programs in Africa by providing oversight to the country teams and partners on M&M strategy and helping them take data-driven decisions. S/he will be responsible for tracking the implementation and outcomes of TaRL Africa programs, and delivery against TaRL Africa’s overall strategy and work plan. S/he will also support the design and implementation of pilots to innovate on measurement/ mentoring components of TaRL programs.

This role provides a unique opportunity to improve the learning outcomes of children across Africa and to be part of a leading evidence-based initiative tackling the learning crisis in Africa. The role will be based in Nairobi with extensive international travel.

Primary Responsibilities

1. Provide oversight to the country teams on program M&M strategy

Supporting the country teams to design an effective M&M strategy is crucial for creating strong localized TaRL programs that are embedded within the government systems.

  • Develop strong understanding of governments’ existing M&M systems in TaRL Africa’s directly-supported countries
  • Support the country M&M associates and partners in designing tools/ processes for data collection, verification, mentoring, and review, and in building the capacity of government officials on data use
  • Support with data analysis and reporting as necessary

2. Support tracking review of implementation and outcomes of TaRL programs, and delivery against TaRL Africa’s overall strategy and work plan

TaRL Africa works with many organizations and governments across Africa. The M&M team is responsible for coordinating with partners and internal teams to track measurement indicators across different programs and respond to data queries as needed.

  • Support the Central Country Leads and M&M Lead in setting up program review processes
  • Coordinate with partners and country teams to collect data on a central data system
  • Support the M&M lead in ensuring that donors, partners, and senior management data queries are addressed in a timely and accurate manner

3. Build technical capacity of country M&M associates

  • Regularly assess the technical capacity of country M&M associates and conduct workshops on data analysis, visualization, and other technical aspects as necessary

4. Support the design and implementation pilots to innovate on measurement/ mentoring components

Experimenting with new ideas to account for the contextual variations that we see across Africa is key to TaRL Africa’s work. The M&M team works closely in collaboration with the content and program teams to pilot innovative mentoring and data collection systems in the Learning Labs that we have established in a few countries.

  • Support the design of innovative technology-based systems for mentoring and data collection and pilot them in the Learning Labs
