Job Description

Chemonics seeks a monitoring, evaluation, and learning specialist for the Tunisia Resilience and Community Empowerment (TRACE). TRACE, funded by USAID, is a five-year project that seeks to support communities to reduce their risk of instability and increase resilience to violent extremism. Through a rigorous community-based development approach, the program will strengthen the voices of underrepresented groups (including women and youth in rural and peri-urban areas) and actively engage community members as participants and leaders in the full cycle of design, management, and evaluation of development activities. The activity will support communities in creating alternative pathways for youth to promote positive outcomes. Working under the supervision of the monitoring, evaluation, and learning director, the specialist will play a key role in information capture of, analysis of, and reporting on a wide range of youth and community resilience activities. We are looking for individuals who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of people around the world.

Responsibilities include:

  • Support the program’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) efforts to ensure data collection, analysis, and learning is fully integrated into all program components

  • Work with relevant staff to develop data-collection plans and questionnaires to evaluate the achievement of activity objectives

  • Draft reports based on qualitative and quantitative data to answer specific requests for research
  • Conduct secondary source research when required to provide context and background for specific requests for research
  • Coordinate in-country data collection and ensure data quality control

  • Bachelor’s degree in the social sciences, with an emphasis on evaluation methodology, required; advanced degree preferred
  • Minimum of five years of experience conducting or managing field-research projects involving various types of data-collection and reporting
  • Experience with donor-funded organizations preferred
  • Excellent familiarity with a range of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and research design
  • Demonstrated experience in analyzing and reporting on program impact
