Job Description

Mott MacDonald is committed to improving people’s lives through creating and delivering tailored development solutions. We work in developing countries to alleviate poverty, establish good governance, and increase access, capacity and resilience in healthcare, education, water, sanitation, transportation, infrastructure and renewable energy – while safeguarding the environment and promoting human rights and gender equity. Drug resistant infections pose a grave threat to health and wellbeing across the Globe. Bacterial causes of infection are becoming resistant to an increasing number of antibiotics, with consequent reductions in the effectiveness of treatment. Estimates indicate that up to 10 million people could die from illnesses that are resistant to antimicrobials by 2050. The UK Government is playing a leading global role in addressing this problem and has launched the Fleming Fund as a major component of the UK’s response. The aim of the Fleming Fund is to address critical gaps in surveillance of antibiotic resistant bacteria in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Countries in these areas are set to bear the highest burden of antibiotic resistant infections. Led by the UK, political action against the problem has resulted in a roadmap for global response - the Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)2. This is the blueprint for a multi-stakeholder Global response to averting the burden of AMR.

We are seeking to recruit a Monitoring and evaluation officer to lead on all M&E matters in relation to Fleming Fund regional grant achievements and results.

You will be responsible for working closely with guarantees, ensuring that they understand the requirements and have the capacity to fulfil them. Participating in application review process, working to develop a grant log frame, and engaging in grant review meetings.

This role requires regular travel to multiple countries within the region for on-site verification and partner liaison. You will have experience of working with multiple stakeholders, have developed results frameworks, and have worked grant/programme implementation in low and middle-income settings.
