Job Description

At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.

This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

This position will support the strengthening of monitoring, evaluation and learning(MEL) systems and processes for advocacy in CARE to enable the organization to better capture and tell the story of CARE’s advocacy efforts across the globe. Advocacy is a key approach in CARE’s program strategy and one of the primary ways CARE intends to impact more lives beyond our programming. Given the importance of advocacy to CARE’s mission of reaching 150 million people by 2020, MEL plays a critical role in tracking, documenting, and learning from the advocacy happening across the confederation. This role will collaborate closely with colleagues across CARE to strengthen the MEL systems for advocacy across CARE and will play a pivotal role in collecting and synthesizing the advocacy data.
