Job Description

Key Consultancy Objective

World Renew is seeking to engage a program evaluation consultant who will provide a complete evaluation of economic livelihoods programming, including facilitating the organizational process to make sense of the results and determine strategic priorities. The goal of the evaluation is to help World Renew identify the best way to apply our available resources (human and financial) in the 9 years remaining of the Baker Grant for the strengthening of economic livelihoods of poor households through suitable, effective, integrated and suistainable multi-year programming.

Primary Consultancy Areas:

  • Conduct a desk-document review of World Renew’s economic livelihoods programs, followed by facilitating an exercise with key stakeholders to determine key focus areas for a multi-country evaluation that will generate information crucial to decision making.
  • Conduct a centrally designed evaluation in a select set of countries (up to 5, perhaps one per program region) using the Success Case Method, or similiar methodology, in which both the most and the least successful cases in a program are examined in detail.
  • Share findings through written report and presentation at a facilitated strategy-setting meeting in the Spring of 2019.

Consultancy Requirements:

The independant consultant must be a program evaluation specialist with the ability to provide evaluation team leadership and facilitation of organizational decision making. The consultant must also have expertise in designing and evaluating economic livelihoods programs. As participatory community-led development is a core World Renew value, expertise in related practices for economic development is essential - Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLA), making markets work for the poor (M4P, market linkages), and producer groups (and related cooperative approaches to organizing for economic livelihoods).

Please submit a letter of interest that addresses the above stipluations outlined in the Consultancy Requirements, your current CV/Resume including previous evaluation consulting work, as well as a fee structure outlining hourly and daily costs on or before Monday, July 23, 2018 to World Renew attention:
