The role of Roving Regional Monitoring and Evaluation Officer is a new role within the decentralised Coordination Team, based in Manilla, Nairobi, Niamey and The Hague. Based on the learnings of the 2019 Mid-Term Review, it was decided to decentralise the global MEL officer into two regional roles: one for Africa and one for South East Asia. These decentralised roles would ensure closer liaisons with the country teams in realising their M&E plan, as part of the global results framework.
Reports to: Voice Linking and Learning Coordinator, based in The Hague.
Travel: The position is based in Laos with regular travel to Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
