  • Minimum of five years of relevant practical experience designing, implementing, and managing gender sensitive M&E systems for donor-funded development projects, with specific experience in education, ECD, civil society, or gender equality and women’s empowerment projects.
  • Knowledge of gender analysis and assessments, including approaches, methods, and frameworks.
  • Experience managing real-time end-to-end data management systems and solutions, including ICT, enabling data collection, analysis, and rapid feedback loops.
  • Experience with the development and overseeing the implementation of data collection tools and systems for the entry, analysis, and storage of data.
  • Experience with adaptive management, iterative M&E, and effective feedback loops to ensure the use of data in strategic and programmatic decision-making.
  • Experience with developing successful knowledge translation strategies and tools to capture, use and communicate results and learnings to inform and strengthen strategies, program design, and practices.
  • Experience using quantitative and qualitative data analysis tools (e.g., SPSS, NVIVO, etc.) is an asset.
  • Experience in providing remote support or willingness to learn effective remote facilitation and support skills.
  • Experience working in project geographies, i.e., Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Uganda.
  • Knowledge and experience with Global Affairs Canada’s (GAC’s) results-based management tools, donor requirements, and reporting processes, including M&E gender equality results is an asset.

Responsibilities

Specifically, the Regional M&E Coordinator will:
  • Contribute to the M&E-specific components of the programme implementation plan, taking a lead role in ensuring M&E activities are comprehensively designed and budgeted.
  • Work with programme staff, technical specialists, and M&E staff to develop and plan key components of the F4EE gender sensitive M&E system, contributing to annual work planning processes.
  • Support in the development of country-specific M&E plans, including data collection tools.
  • Identify platforms and mechanisms to systematically store all project data, including using AKF’s Award Information Management System (AIMS).
  • Collaborate with the programme teams to integrate data collection into existing programme tools and where applicable design additional gender sensitive M&E data collection tools and processes.
  • Collaborate with AKF M&E and technical programme teams to ensure real-time data collection from all stakeholders, engaging ICT enabled systems where applicable.
  • Provide technical and operational oversight of regional M&E-based consultancies.
  • Ensure all data collection processes adhere to ethical standards, including AKF’s Safeguarding Policy and obtaining national government research permits in project countries.
  • Work with AKF regional technical team, Global Programme Team, and AKDN sister agencies to contribute to the effective implementation of the research and learning agenda.
  • Coordinate project studies and (if relevant) evaluations, ensuring quality, alignment with project needs and adherence to ethical standards.
  • Ensure data analysis, results, and lessons learned are effectively documented and communicated to internal teams and external partners.
  • Facilitate regular review of project and annual targets and theory of change based on all data collected and analysed.  
  • Coordinate a capacity assessment to identify strengths and capacity gaps across the F4EE M&E team and coordinate the delivery of a targeted, collaborative capacity development plan to the team.
  • Coordinate a regional M&E community of practice to enable F4EE M&E stakeholders to connect and learn from one another virtually and in-person.
  • Build relationships and maintain coordinated communications with all F4EE stakeholders.
