Would you like to help create a world without barriers for deaf children and young people?
The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.
Deaf Child Worldwide is the international development arm of the National Deaf Children’s Society in the UK. We currently support work in South Asia, East Africa, and Latin America.
We are dedicated to helping deaf children and young people in some of the most resource- poor settings overcome the barriers that they face.
This is an exciting opportunity to work closely with our Evidence and Evaluation Manager to develop a robust framework for monitoring and evaluating our international work, so that we make sure that learning is captured in ways that can be shared and used for effective advocacy, influencing and change. You will also work closely with our regional teams to help embed monitoring, evaluation and learning into all our work and to identify, commission and manage research in key thematic areas across selected projects.
You will have experience of designing and developing effective MEL programmes in the international development context. You will be confident in and have experience of successfully putting theory of change models into practice and you have the experience and confidence to support others in this field.
It goes without saying that you will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to liaise authoritatively with internal and external contacts at all levels and in a variety of cultural settings.
Based in the UK, you will be able and willing to travel to any of the locations in which Deaf Child World wide supports programme work.
