About the role

Sightsavers has recently refreshed its programme strategy and is developing its approach to measuring progress towards programme goals. In line with this we have created a strategic Learning, Accountability, Monitoring Performance framework (LAMP). In 2022 – 23 we’ll be taking forward development of impact and outcome indicators, including piloting and testing new indicators, supporting the integration of prioritised indicators into systems and processes at global level and in programmes. This will involve working closely with programme staff located across our global portfolio who will be responsible for overseeing much of the data collection, and supporting other key stakeholders such as Global Technical Leads (GTLs).

The Strategy MEL Manager (SMM) will work closely with the other new post Strategy Data Implementation Manager (SDIM) and within the cross-team LAMP Project Core Group. Together the two postholders will be responsible for driving the design and collection of data for the LAMP. They will develop and implement a work plan for making the data collection, analysis and evaluation operational.

Support the identification of projects that can fund certain aspects of the indicators going forward.

Support the prioritisation of indicators to be made operational in 2022
