Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist - KENYA

SNV is looking for a Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist

Based in Nairobi, Kenya

International Contract, 18 months initial term

SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation. Founded in the Netherlands nearly 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in 38 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors work with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.

Starting in early 2014, SNV will enter into a RBF contract with DFID to scale-up our Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All (SSH4A) approach across a series of countries in an effort to improve access to sanitation for millions of people around the world. The SSH4A approach will be implemented in nine countries in Africa and Asia (Kenya, Ghana, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nepal, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia). The SSH4A Approach combines work on demand creation −mostly through Community Lead Total Sanitation (CLTS)− sanitation supply chains, hygiene behavioural change communication (BCC) and governance.  The key results of this program will be to increase the number of ODF communities, expand access to sanitation and hygiene promotion activities, expand access to and improve sanitation facilities, and to increase the numbers of individuals practicing good sanitation hygiene.  Program success will rely on measurable impact at the country level. 

SNV is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist. The M&E Specialist will lead quality monitoring and evaluation of SSH4A programming in support of this program, using SNV’s Managing for Results performance monitoring framework and the specific SSH4A framework to ensure quality information and reporting on results to partners and donors. The M&E Specialist will report to the SSH4A Results Multi-country Programme Manager.

  • Ensure that M&E activities integrate global best practices in measurement of sanitation and hygiene behavior, as well as capacity development;
  • Support global monitoring and evaluation of DFID SSH4A Results Program results according to established timelines, to include consolidation of data from nine country programs for internal and external reporting;
  • Guide design and implementation of baseline data collection and its use/application in evaluation across programme countries;
  • Optimize country level program team use and management of M&E data related to SSH4A efforts and manage data at the DFID SSH4A Program team level;

  • Design, monitor & modify performance reporting tools;
  • Lead dissemination of evaluation findings to multiple stakeholders, including DFID and partners;

  • Assist in use and maintenance of data in SNV’s performance management information system;
  • Share and stimulate sharing of relevant M&E topics related to the SSH4A Results Programme within SNV, and translate relevant trends and developments into SNVs corporate PME policy and practice.
