    USAID SHOPS Plus Jobs in Kenya

    1. IT Consultant (DHIS2 Platform)

    SHOPS Plus: Engaging Kenya’s Private Health Sector in DHIS2

    IT Consultant - DHIS2 Platform

    Background: The Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus project is USAID’s global flagship initiative in private sector health.

    The overall purpose of the project is to improve health outcomes and increase the use of priority health services through the strategic engagement of the private sector in health systems.

    The project concentrates on family planning and reproductive health; maternal, newborn, and child health; and HIV and AIDS.

    SHOPS Plus currently is seeking a consultant to assist with an effort to pilot the use of DHIS2 as a platform to both

    (1) increase private sector data sharing with government health management information systems (HMIS), and

    (2) improve management and use of routine data by private sector facilities.

    The pilot will focus on family planning services delivered through private drug shops and pharmacies in Kenya.

    SHOPS Plus will explore opportunities to use existing IT solutions that are compatible with DHIS2 to simplify and reduce burdensome reporting processes.

    Such platforms provide an opportunity to provide rapid feedback that can help strengthen providers’ business practices (e.g., data on usage rates and method mix), thereby demonstrating the value of the system and increasing participating providers’ support for the system.

    Analysis of DHS data shows that the private sector is an important source of family planning users around the world, especially for youth populations.

    {Ugaz, JI, M Chatterjee, JN Gribble, S Mitchell. 2015. Regional trends in the use of short-acting and long-acting contraception accessed through the private and public sectors. International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics.}

    {SHOPS Project. 2015. Reaching Youth with Modern Contraception. Bethesda, MD: Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector, Abt Associates.} With its flexibility and simplicity, DHIS2 presents an opportunity to implement an easy-to-use, simple reporting system that providers can use to record their service delivery statistics and share routine service delivery data with the national HMIS.

    Many country governments and larger private sector organizations have already started using DHIS2 to this end, yet significant gaps remain in the private health sector. Independent private health care providers, especially at the drug shop and pharmacy level, have largely not adopted any means of participating in government HMIS.

    National governments, who increasingly use routine data to monitor progress, therefore see an incomplete picture.

    Improving private sector participation is therefore essential to gaining an accurate understanding of family planning use in a country, monitoring progress toward global FP2020 goals, and developing health sector strategic plans.

    In addition, improving data management will also have a benefit to the private providers themselves, as they will have better and more frequent data to help them better plan, budget, and forecast needs for their facilities.

    The pilot will have four phases:

    1. Pilot design: Work with relevant stakeholders to develop a recruitment strategy identify pharmacies to target for participation; agree to reporting requirements; identify current barriers to reporting among pharmacies; and adapt systems to connect with DHIS2 platform for pilot.

    2. Recruitment of drug shops and pharmacies: Develop and use a business case that outlines the potential benefits for providers from improving their reporting of routine data to recruit participants for pilot that vary in terms of size, type, location, etc.

    3. Pilot implementation: During this period, SHOPS Plus will provide technical assistance to the pilot facilities, public sector officials, and other stakeholders to facilitate reporting of FP statistics.

    Activities will include training participating providers on the reporting requirements and systems, providing supervision and mentorship to pilot participants, review reports for data quality issues, and troubleshoot any problems.

    The consultant will also facilitate between SHOPS Plus project staff, Ministry of Health officials, and pilot participants to ensure that all participating pharmacies and drug shops have access to the necessary registers, as well as data collection and reporting forms.

    The implementation will be broken up into two phases: a 1-2 month training period followed by a 6-month pilot period.

    4. Pilot learning: Over the course of the pilot period, SHOPS Plus will analyze collected data to determine if there are changes in the amount, quality (e.g., accuracy, precision, completeness, timeliness, consistency, etc.), frequency, and usability of data from participating facilities in the public sector HMIS.

    SHOPS Plus seeks to recruit an IT Consultant to work with the project team to appropriately adapt DHIS2 for use by the private drug stores and pharmacies for data entry, data analysis and report generation.

    The pilot project will work with the key stakeholders and the enrolled drug stores and pharmacies to identify the relevant data elements and indicators that need to be collected.

    This will be reconciled against the current data capture form in DHIS2 ‘Facility Contraceptive Consumption and Request Form’ to isolate any gaps.

    The LOE of 35 days is estimated to complete the task with a period of performance start from October 15, 2016 to June 30, 2017.

    The consultant will report to SHOPS Plus project staff and will be responsible to work with MOH and UON to:

  • Customize or update an appropriate data capture form in DHIS2 to allow for comprehensive data collection, analysis and use by drug stores and pharmacies based on the consensus built amongst the stakeholders. [3 days]
  • Update DHIS2 with the relevant organizational details necessary to allow for data set mapping. [1 day]
  • Map and assign the enrolled drugstores and pharmacies all the relevant data entry forms in DHIS2 necessary to meet the data element and indicator calculation requirements. [2 days]
  • Design standard reports and dashboard analytical visuals appropriately worked using the data sets in DHIS and relevant to the stakeholders involved. [2 days]
  • Ensure all the end-users identified by the drugstores and pharmacies receive an appropriate DHIS2 access credentials to allow for effective use. [2 days]
  • Contribute to the development of the training material and resources necessary for training the drug stores and pharmacies staff to use DHIS2. [2 days]
  • Support training by facilitating the relevant technology sections of the training package. [3 days]
  • Provide onsite technical assistance to pilot participants to trouble shoot and resolve problems relating to DHIS2 platform (15 days)
  • Participate in the pilot project management meetings as required from time to time. [5 days]

    Deliverables

  • DHIS2 ready for data entry, data retrieval and presentation by users enrolled in the pilot project.
  • Training material and resources relevant for training the users to use DHIS2 correctly and effectively.
  • Appropriate end-user training delivered.
  • Monthly reports of any onsite assistance delivered

    Qualifications:

    The successful candidate for this position will have:

  • Experience working with private pharmacies and drug shops in Kenya
  • Demonstrated expertise in HMIS and familiarity with the DHIS2 platform
  • An understanding of relevant indicators used to track family planning service statistics
  • Good written and oral communication skills

    Applications due by October 05th, 2016

    Send applications to: Sean_Callahan@abtassoc.com

    Consultant Opportunity in Nairobi, Kenya – Production of Migration and Health SDCB Video Documentary

    Background and Justification

    The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is a dynamic and growing inter-governmental organization, with 162 member states. IOM works to:

  • Help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration,
  • Promote international cooperation on migration issues,
  • Assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems, and
  • Provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people.

    IOM’s Migration and Health strategy is focused on broader migration and health vulnerabilities and challenges faced by migrants and communities with whom they interact.

    The overall objective of IOM’s Health Strategy for East and Southern Africa from 2012 to 2017 is to contribute to the improvement in the standards of physical, mental and social well-being of migrants, mobile populations, and communities affected by migration by responding to their health needs throughout all phases of the migration process, as well as the public health needs of host and sending communities in East and Southern Africa.

    In order to achieve the above, IOM Migration and Health units in East and Southern Africa implement a comprehensive health programme called the “Partnership on Health and Mobility in East and Southern Africa” (PHAMESA).

    Through this programme IOM aims to address Migration and health vulnerabilities amongst migrants and communities affected by migration, through four strategic approaches,

    1) Monitoring of migrants health to inform policies and practices

    2) Policies and legislations to make provisions for the health needs and rights of migrants and migration affected communities

    3) Migrants and migration affected communities have access and use Migrant-Sensitive Health Services

    4) Strengthening Multi-country/sectoral partnerships and networks for effective and sustainable responses to migration and health challenges in East and Southern Africa.

    IOM works in partnership with government and other stakeholders to effect change by strengthening local, community health systems so as to improve the health of migrants and individuals in migration affected communities.

    To do this we use our Community Based Migration Responsive Framework to help guide our interventions:

    Figure 1: Healthy Migrants in Healthy Communities – a framework to guide community based, migration responsive services

    This framework uses a Health Promotion and Public Health approach and aims to support partners including government, civil society and the private sector to respond to the social determinants of health that exist in spaces of vulnerability and impact on health outcomes, including the conditions under which people live, work and travel, their access to food, water and livelihood, as well as to social support, services and resources.

    Therefore, this framework constitutes an innovative, strategic and practical approach to addressing health vulnerability and improving health outcomes in identified spaces of vulnerability through the promotion of an enabling local environment for health service delivery as well as individual and social change, and through supporting the development of local responses to address the health needs of those within that space of vulnerability.

    Purpose of the consultancy

    IOM produces a variety of capacity building and advocacy material using different media such as electronic, visual and print to highlight health vulnerabilities related to migration and to showcase appropriate interventions.

    IOM commissioned the production of a video documentary on the Service Delivery and Capacity Building (SDCB) framework in the last quarter of 2014. The objective of the documentary is to strengthen knowledge and understanding of migration and health programming in East and Southern Africa.

    In the interest of developing communication and advocacy material that is easily comprehensible by key stakeholders and the general public and having communication tools that can be circulated on several platforms IOM would like to develop new scripts for a documentary and short human interest stories based on the available footage.

    To this end, IOM seeks the services of a Video Production Consultant or Service Provider to finalize the Video Documentary according to the new requirements by IOM.

    A DVD comprised of short human interest stories five minutes each highlighting different migration health challenges and clearly showing how migrants have responded to them.

    A 10 minute feature documentary showcasing the uniqueness of IOM’s Community based Migration Responsive framework in responding to public health changes in migrant affected communities.

    Both DVD’s will be used in capacity building of implementing partners, government partners and other strategic partners and will advocate for holistic, migration inclusive response to health.

    Specific Tasks of the consultancy

    Duties include the following:

  • Review the current video documentary, script and footage. The process should include consultation with the Media and Communications Officer and the Migration Health Project Officers for Service Delivery and Capacity Building.
  • Develop a post-production time line; Revise scripts and story boards for the new documentary.
  • If required, conduct field visits to film or capture any additional footage required for the new script.
  • Once the script has been approved, edit and finalize the video documentary.
  • Submit final documentary to IOM

    Expected Deliverables

    The selected consultant and service provider will be responsible for the following:

    Scripting

  • Presentation of the five minute each short human interest stories scripts by the PHAMESA team;
  • Presentation of a ten minute feature documentary script to be reviewed and approved by the PHAMESA team;

    GiveDirectly Country Director Job in Nairobi or Kisumu, Kenya

    Background: GiveDirectly aims to reshape international giving. We provide an end-to-end platform that enables funders to provide direct cash transfers to the extreme poor. We are among the fastest-growing international development non-profits and are recipients of a Google Global Impact Award and a top rating from GiveWell.

    Our unorthodox approach – allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose how to invest – has driven debate both in press and policy circles (e.g., NPR’sThis American Life, Foreign Affairs, The Economist, New York Times, The Guardian).

    We are also known for our extensive integration of technology into field processes; our quantitative approach to performance measurement; and our commitment to rigorous, independent, experimental evaluation of our impact, with one Randomized Controlled Trial completed and multiple additional RCTs in progress.

    We are looking for exceptional talent to help build a startup into a world-class organization. Our culture is professional, analytical, non-hierarchical, fast-paced, and blunt, and we’re looking for people that match that description.

    We are open to candidates from any industry; we typically recruit from top private-sector firms and offer competitive salary and benefits.

    Overview: You will be responsible for all aspects of GiveDirectly’s program on the ground. This involves building the team, organizational culture, and processes that both enable the achievement of short-term goals (i.e. annual KPIs) and create the conditions for long-term growth.

    You will be able to draw on resources from the fundraising team, Finance & Operations verticals, and COO-I/President, but will ultimately be accountable to both recipients and donors for delivering a gold-standard product.

    Responsibilities:

    Formulate and deliver annual targets

  • Design ambitious work-plans and accompanying budgets
  • Ensure that country office achieves annual KPIs for household enrolment, operational efficiency, and key user experience metrics
  • Ensure that operational reports are being reliably generated and actioned

    Increase the organization’s capacity for scale without compromising quality of product

  • Build capacity of managers at all levels by ensuring that they have clearly-defined metrics for success and regular feedback on progress
  • Build systems to enable rapid scale-up of a high-quality team
  • Assess, on an on-going basis, resource/capacity gaps across the org & test solutions

    Identify and mitigate risk

  • Identify vulnerability to fraud and rule-breaking across the operating model and design appropriate controls
  • Identify key areas in need of redundancy and buffering to reduce the impact of un-anticipated operational roadblocks
  • Build networks with local actors/institutions that will help identify and protect against macro risk

    Build organizational culture

  • Define and communicate a set of practices and norms that animate GD’s core values
  • Support org-wide interventions that help to promote productivity, well-being, and morale
  • Build systems for monitoring and actioning feedback from the team

    You must have the ability to:

  • Thrive in a professional culture where “autonomy” means no rule books for how to do your job well
  • Rapidly assess and understand a complex operating environment with a view to the long-term (e. success is not meeting targets in 6 months, it’s building an organization that can double in a year)
  • Look critically at a process/system and quickly flag and size risk/inefficiency
  • Identify, grow, and retain exceptional talent on your team

    Mid Term Evaluation job in Nairobi, Kenya: Governance and Human Rights program - Public Participation in Devolved Governance

    Introduction

    Over the past four decades, Trocaire has worked alongside partners to protect and respond to the basic rights of those in need, while tackling the critical questions as to why people are poor and oppressed.

    Trócaire is an Irish development agency that was established in 1973 by the Catholic Bishops of Ireland and its work is inspired by Catholic Social teachings with an overarching commitment to social justice. Trócaire works in over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

    Trócaire has been working in Kenya for 30 years, working with over twenty five local partner organisations, Trócaire focuses on Governance and human rights (GHR), Secure Livelihoods and Environmental Justice (SLEJ), Integrated Gender and HIV (IGH)

    Trocaire Kenya brings about change through enhancing the capacity of communities to protect and promote their own well-being and the needs of the most vulnerable in the face of a wide range of threats from inter-ethnic conflict to poor governance or from damaging cultural practices to political incitement and shocks such as drought, flooding or fire etc.

    We believe that the future well-being of the country and its citizens lies in the resilience of communities – their ability to understand and respond to conflict, prepare for and respond to emergencies, recognize and elect effective leaders, manage and distribute common resources, support equitable access to services and to reflect on, and change, practices that bring harm to its members

    GHR Program Background

    The Governance and Human Rights (GHR) program work is anchored on the devolved system of Governance brought in by the Kenya constitution 2010 and that took effect after the general elections of 2013.

    The Constitution, in Chapter 11, provides devolution as the vehicle through which the funds to facilitate access to resources will be devolved to communities at the village, ward, constituency and county level.

    The goal of the GHR program is to work towards a democratic and peaceful Kenya as espoused by popular participation, rule of law, equity and human dignity. This goal is addressed through two main objectives:

    · Improving protection for human rights, resilience to conflict and access to social services for marginalized groups especially youth, women and children in the target counties of Nairobi, Turkana, Nakuru and West Pokot.

    · Strengthening the capacity of programme partners to demonstrate programme impact ad value for money.

    Key issues in the context are twofold:

    First following the March 2013 elections, a devolution process whereby financial resources are managed partially at the county level was rolled out and the new constitution made provision for much greater public participation in governance processes.

    The second context is the volatile nature of communal relationships in Kenya both in the informal urban settlements and in the ASALs.

    Inter-ethnic differences are often manipulated for political or economic interests and repeated conflicts undermines progress in promoting human rights.

    The program targets vulnerable youth and women and works in the urban informal settlements of Kibera and Nakuru and the Arid and Semi-arid Lands (ASALs) of Turkana and West Pokot.

    The program works at three levels as below:

    Micro: Target groups are supported with training, rights awareness and how to engage and influence county governance structures and on the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in conflict prone regions.

    Meso: At county level, the program engages with the duty bearers to enhance accountability under the new devolved system, and provides training on human rights.

    Macro: The programme supports advocacy and lobbying at national level to adopt and/or revise government policies to ensure that they comply with human rights norms and respond to the needs of marginalized groups.

    The programme supports the openness of civil society space by working with the Civil Society Reference Group to oversee the actions of the national government and changes in the regulatory framework.

    By the time of this evaluation, the program will be completing the 3rd year of implementation. The program works through 9 partners namely: Catholic Justice and Peace Diocese of Lodwar, Justice and Peace centre Kitale (JPC Kitale), The Legal Resources Foundation Trust (LRF), Christ the King Kibera (CTK), Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC), Shalom Centre for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation (SCCRR), Centre for Enhancing Democracy and Good Governance (CEDGG), Association of Sisterhoods in Kenya (AOSK)and TISA (The institute of Social Accountability)

    Purpose of the Mid Term Evaluation

    The mid tem review will assess progress towards the achievement of the program objectives and outcomes as specified in the Program results framework document. It will identify and outline program achievements, successes and learnings that can be further replicated to achieve the intended results.

    It is expected that this review will interrogate the implementation methodologies especially the recently introduced Community engagement model of community conversations as well as the use of organized groups such as social accountability forums.

    The review will also assess any challenges or early signs of project success or failure with the goal of identifying and outlining corrective actions to ensure that a project is on track to achieve maximum results by its completion.

    The review will also assess the program implementation strategy, its risks to replicability and sustainability.

    The sustainability assessment should address social-political risks and stakeholder ownership, national institutional framework and governance and environmental risks.

    The program initial design was informed by program evaluations of the previous governance and Human rights program. After the initial design phase, the program was further informed by a baseline survey conducted in 2014.

    A partner led survey was conducted in November 2015, which sought to establish Groups, Leaders and members’ competency/ skills and knowledge levels on different issues. The midterm review will evaluate progress on the indicators in the results framework against the baseline information.

    Approach and Methodology

    The Midterm review must provide evidence based information that is credible, reliable and useful.

    It is expected to follow a collaborative and participatory approach ensuring close engagement with the program team, partner’s team, communities and relevant stakeholders.

    The data required for this evaluation will be collected at four levels:

    · Discussions with partners.

    · Group level assessment.

    · Individual level assessment

    · Focus Groups.

    The data collected will be both Quantitative and Qualitative and will be analysed and reported by group as well as by partner where applicable.

    Detailed Scope

    The evaluation will assess the following categories of project progress.

    Project design

    This will review for relevance, appropriateness and coverage of the program interventions.

    · Review the problem addressed by the program and the underlying context. Review the effect of any incorrect assumptions or changes to the context to achieving the program results as outlined in the Program documents.

    · Review the relevance of the program implementation approach/strategy and assess whether it provides the most effective route towards expected/intended results. The program has mostly used groups as a community engagement model and in the recent past the program has used community conversations’ methodology to facilitating the communities and groups.

    It is critical that this evaluation reviews this approach and provide feedback on its effectiveness towards achieving results.

    Progress towards results

    One of the key purpose of the midterm evaluation is to establish the changes experienced by program beneficiaries and target population with regard to the indicators included in the Trócaire Results Framework.

    The results framework indicators should be reviewed against baseline and progress made towards the end-of-program targets.

    · Review the level to which program outcomes have been achieved and highlight any unexpected outcomes.

    · Outline the beneficiaries (women, men, youth, vulnerable groups) and in what ways they have benefited and establish if those benefits (outcomes) are relevant to people’s needs

    · Establish whether the program activities are appropriate and effective in achieving the stated objectives.

    · Assess and analyse the effectiveness of the program in enhancing the capacity of the target groups to effectively participate in governance processes as well as their ability in conflict identification and resolution.

    · Establish if the program has established reasonable methods for gathering data necessary to monitor and evaluate progress and is gathered data useful and applicable for improved performance.

    · Highlight the extent to which the program interventions have contributed to the policy debate both at the county level and the national level

    · Review the extent to which the program collaborates with the County Government and National Government. The added value of the collaboration should be highlighted as well as the enabling and limiting factors.

    · Review the extent to which the program collaborates and networks with the other projects within the program and other relevant networks. The added value of the collaboration should be highlighted as well as the enabling and limiting factors.

    · Review the management of the program at partner level and their level of capacity to deliver the program objectives and outcomes as stipulated in the results framework.

    · Identify the aspects of the program that have already been successful and give insights on ways in which the project can further expand these benefits.

    · Identify remaining barriers to achieving the end of program targets

    Efficiency and value for money

    This review should give a critical look at how well the resources availed for the program were utilized to give quality outputs towards the achievement of the intended program outcomes.

    Instances of duplication or inefficient use of resources should be highlighted with recommendations on how best to optimize the resources availed to the partners.

    Accountability

    This being a program whose key message is transparency and accountability, it is important to have an inward look into the program to establish how well the program is in line with the transparency and accountability principles that it promotes.

    The review will therefore identify the extent to which the program has been accountable to the program beneficiaries, program relevant stakeholders, program donors among others.

    Sustainability

    The review will seek to establish if the program interventions and strategies employed have empowered the communities for sustainability of the results after the life of the program and efforts to build more linkages with other relevant community groups, civil society organizations, resident associations, business community, the media and government agencies and departments to help the program participants identify opportunities and communication networks for future engagements.

    The review should also establish if the program interventions have been entrenched into the relevant governance institutions and policy departments.

    It will also validate whether the risks identified in the project documents are the most important also identify financial, social economic, institutional or environmental risks to the program sustainability.

    Evaluation Methodology and Process

    The midterm review process is expected to start in October 2016 for a period of about 27 days.

    The evaluator will be expected to organize data collection exercises involving programme partners, beneficiaries and Trocaire staff. Specifically the assignment will involve.

    · Review of key programme documents including the program results framework 2015, Program Design document, project reports and budgets among others.

    · Review of key government documents including but not limited to Constitution of Kenya 2010.

    · Face-to-face interviews with partners implementing under the programme

    · Face to face interviews with project beneficiaries and other relevant persons in the projects’ implementation localities.

    The review team will be expected to prepare a midterm review inception report at the start of the assignment.

    This report should outline the team’s understanding of the project being assessed and the methodology (ies) the team will use to ensure the data collected is credible, reliable and useful.

    The inception report should also include a clear overview of the midterm review approach, including:

    · The purpose, objective, and scope of the review

    · A summary of the data collection methodologies

    Save the Children jobs in Nairobi, Kenya

    1. Budget and Reporting Officer, South Sudan Country Office

    Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

    We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

    We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

    Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office.

    We're changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.

    South Sudan is one of the most challenging and exciting working environments that Save the Children currently works in. The newest country in the world, its legacy of thirty years of war has yet to be even partly addressed as its new government struggles to both mature and reach out to its people.

    Education rates remain extremely low with less than 10% of the population finishing primary school; and only 200 girls completing secondary school in 2011 (out of a total population of greater than 8 Million people).

    Infrastructure across the country remains virtually none-existent; with 80% of the country - including State capitals - only accessible for half of the year (the rainy season) by small aircraft. Even in the capital - Juba - there are no functioning public utilities, few tarmac roads and limited health services.

    Aid agencies rely on generators, water trucking and satellite internet to meet their basic needs. The agencies still provide some 75% of the basic services of the South Sudanese population. Parts of the country are still racked by insecurity - tribal militias, rebel militia groups and direct conflict with the North of Sudan all take their regular toll on the civilian population.

    Role Purpose:

    The Budget and Reporting Officer will be primarily responsible for preparation of donor and other internal monitoring reports, supporting non-thematic and cross thematic allocation process, supporting the forecast process and uploading phased budgets in AGRESSO.

    The Budget and Reporting Officer will ensure donor and the organization requirements are adhered to and internal monitoring systems of grants are in place and there is timely production of information. The role is to support the South Sudan Country Office; the role is based on Nairobi but with approx. 20% travel to South Sudan.

    Contract Duration: 12 months' renewable upon availability of funding

    Location: Nairobi with 20 % travel to South Sudan (Please note that this will be hired as a National Role )

    Qualifications and Experience:

  • Must hold a Bachelor's degree in a business field.
  • Should hold professional qualifications i.e. CPA (K) or ACCA Finalist.
  • At least three year's INGOs experience especially in budget setting and financial accounting
  • Great analytical skills and ability to articulate financial data to non-financial stakeholders
  • Excellent knowledge of Microsoft Office package, specifically Excel and Word and experience of working with accounting software
  • Ability to work under pressure and achieve results in a fast paced, deadline focused environment
  • Attention to detail
  • Proficiency in English, both oral and written
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, including cultural sensitivity, assertiveness and negotiating skills.
  • Ability to work as part of a mobile team.
  • Willingness to travel to South Sudan occasionally (approx. 20% of time)

    Please apply in English saving your CV and covering letter as a single document, including your salary expectations for this role.

    We need to keep children safe so our selection process reflects our commitment to the protection of children from abuse. Employment is subject to our Child protection standards including background checks and adherence to our Child Safeguarding Policy

    2. Documenting Good Practices on the Implementation of Positive Discipline in the East and Southern Africa Region - Consultancy

    Terms of Reference

    Background

    Save the Children in its Global Ambition for 2030 has expressed a noble mission to ensure that ‘Violence against Children is no longer tolerated’ and has set this as a key priority and a breakthrough to be achieved within the next 15 years.

    Save the Children uses Article 19 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to define violence against children: ‘States Parties shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse.’

    Studies and global trends reflect that the prevalence of violence against children is increasing, with the world’s complexities and risks changing every day, leaving children vulnerable to harm.

    This harm towards children can occur in different settings. It could be within the home/family environment of the child; within the larger environment such as in schools, in institutional care for those living in children’s institutions (commonly known as children’s homes or orphanages), in the justice system for children in contact/conflict with the law, within communities such as when exposed to harmful traditional practices; and it can also occur during a larger national crisis when a country experiences war/conflict or a natural disaster that leads to death, injuries and displacement.

    A groundbreaking study done in 2006 by an independent expert (Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro), appointed by the United Nations Secretary-General detailed the severity of Violence against Children globally, across all the above mentioned settings.

    This report challenged all States, International and National actors including communities and children on the fact that there can be no compromise in challenging violence against children’.

    He stated that children’s uniqueness — their potential and vulnerability, their dependence on adults — makes it imperative that they have more, not less, protection from violence.

    And that every society, no matter its cultural, economic or social background, can and must stop violence against children.

    Key to this action, he mentioned that this does not only involve dealing with the perpetrators of violence, but further requires transformation of the “mindset” of societies and the underlying economic and social conditions associated with violence.

    The Study further stated that the societal acceptance of violence is a risk factor that perpetrates violence and that perpetrators may accept physical, sexual and psychological violence as inevitable and normal. Discipline through physical and humiliating punishment, bullying and sexual harassment are frequently perceived as normal, particularly when no “visible” or lasting physical injury results.

    He then further stated that the lack of an explicit legal prohibition of corporal punishment reflects this[1]. The Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children – which has dedicated focus on advocacy towards legal reform on corporal punishment – states that at least 106 countries do not prohibit the use of corporal punishment in schools, 147 countries do not prohibit it within alternative care settings, and as of 2006 only 16 countries have prohibited its use in the home[2].

    A recent brief the Initiative did in April 2016 showed that worldwide, 49 states have prohibited corporal punishment in all settings, including in the home, but 21 do not prohibit it fully in any setting; in Africa, complete prohibition has been enacted in seven states[3]

    Paul Sergio Pinheiro made recommendations following the Study, urging State Parties to adhere and implement them for No Violence against Children is justifiable and that all forms of violence against Children is preventable.

    Introduction

    One of the recommendations was that States were to develop and implement systematic national data collection and research. Multiple studies and surveys have since been done by Countries, Non-Governmental Organizations, and Civil Society; showing the high prevalence of Violence against Children, with one of the most commonly practiced and widely accepted being Physical and Humiliating Punishment.

    A recent study done by the African Child Policy Forum in 2014, shows that in Tanzania for example, nearly 60% of Tanzanian girls and boys reported physical abuse either from a relative or a parent; and in Kenya, almost two-thirds of females and three-quarters of males reported experiencing physical violence prior to the age of 18.

    Among those who reported experiencing physical violence, the forms that they detailed included being punched, kicked, whipped or beaten with an object by a parent or adult relative[4].

    Earlier studies showed that in East Africa, Ethiopia in 2010 registered 68% prevalence of corporal/physical violence[5]; in Kenya the prevalence in 2006 was 99%[6], but in 2012 it was 61% for girls and 62% for boys, Uganda registered 98.3% prevalence in 2005[7], 94.2% in 2006 for girls and 85.8% for boys. In 2010 the prevalence of corporal punishment stood at 81% for girls and 87% for boys[8].

    In addressing this, the UN Global Study mentioned that a stable family unit can be a powerful source of protection from violence for children in all settings. Pinheiro further stated that factors that are likely to be protective in the home as well as other settings include good parenting, the development of strong attachment bonds between parents and children and positive non-violent discipline.

    In addition to this, factors that are likely to protect against violence at school include school-wide policies and effective curricula that support the development of non-violent and non-discriminatory attitudes and behaviors.

    Children themselves reported during the Study’s regional consultations proposed positive and effective alternative forms of discipline, to reduce the physical and psychological hurt that they suffer from physical and humiliating punishment[9]

    Save the Children has since prioritized action on the prevention and response towards all forms of Physical and Humiliating Punishment, taking two key approaches of advocating for legal reform on the total ban on corporal punishment working in collaboration with the Global Initiative to End Corporal Punishment; and secondly, advocating the use of non-violent alternatives to discipline and in particular working with societies on the use of Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting and Teaching.

    The Regional and Multi-Country Programme Unit (RMCPU) based in Save the Children’s East and Southern Africa Regional Office (SC ESARO), has been key in the implementation of the Positive Discipline Programme mentioned above within the East Africa Region from 2012 to current.

    Following the implementation of the PD programme, impact assessments, evaluations and KAP (knowledge, attitude and practice) surveys have been done to determine whether there has been a positive change within society on the acceptance and use of non-violent forms of discipline and rearing children and have documented the experience, learnings and recommendations of the process.

    Recognizing the value of the use of Positive Discipline in reducing the prevalence of Physical and Humiliating Punishment, this Terms of Reference commissions the Documentation of Good Practices, Learnings and Recommendations from the implementation of Positive Discipline Programmes in East and Southern Africa.

    This is so as to build evidence on what works that we could advocate for wider adoption (showing any contextualization that may have occurred), learn from what hasn’t worked and what could be done to address the same, and to explore opportunities for sustainability of the PD programme.

    Objectives of the Assessment

  • Map out PD implementation in ESAR (East and Southern Africa Region) done by Save the Children Country Offices and ESARO RMCPU Partner Organizations
  • Review and analysis of evaluation reports generated by countries that have implemented Positive Discipline Programmes in ESAR
  • Documentation of good practice- what has worked and why, lessons learnt and concrete recommendations from the implementation of Positive Discipline highlighting opportunities for building sustainable PD programmes in ESAR
  • Assess the viability of implementation and integration with other Save the Children thematic programs.

    Methodology and Scope of Work

  • This will be done through a consultancy, adopting a participatory approach by engaging all involved actors namely Save the Children, Partner Organizations, Community Members involved in the implementation, with a unique focus on consulting children as well.
  • The proposed methodology is the adoption of both primary/first-hand and secondary means of collecting the required data and information, with a range of audio-visual tools to document the field/site visits, and the material recorded will be used for further sharing and advocacy as deemed appropriate.
  • The consultant will be commissioned by SC ESARO RMCPU and will through the course of this assignment work with the team to the successful completion of this assignment. In order to achieve the above objectives, below is the proposed table of activities against suggested period of days

    Programme End line Study and Final Evaluation Job in Kenya – ASALs Resilience Programme

    1. Introduction

    Trócaire[1] is an Irish development agency that was established in 1973 by the Catholic Bishops of Ireland. Trócaire works in over 20 countries in partnership with local civil society organizations implementing both long-term development and emergency response programmes.

    Trócaire has been working in Kenya for over 30 years and established its Nairobi office in 1994. Working with over twenty five local partner organisations, Trócaire focuses on Secure Livelihoods and Environmental Justice (SLEJ); Governance and human rights (GHR), Integrated Gender and HIV (IGH).

    Trócaire contributes towards ‘a just Kenya where communities have agency and are realising their fundamental rights through critical engagement within a context of accountable and equitable governance.’ (Country Strategic Plan-CSP: 2015-20).

    Our country programme is built on an ecological model that integrates a change process based on micro, meso and macro level engagements with strong partnerships, a commitment to capacity building, clear advocacy priorities, high levels of financial oversight and holistic programme design to bring about social change.

    Trócaire works at 3 levels across all programmes: Micro: Communities (especially women and youth within those communities) are empowered to be more ‘resilient’ to hazards, shocks and conflict i.e. are able to identify problems, come up with solutions, plan to address their problems and carry out those plans so that the rights of all are protected; Meso: Civil society is vibrant and promotes citizens’ concerns and rights while county level government is more accountable and managing an equitable devolved governance system - responsive to citizen’s needs; and Macro: Government is influenced to be more accountable, equitable and responsive to citizen’s needs.

    2. Brief Overview of the Programme

    Trócaire ASALs resilience programme (ARP), which is an integrated livelihoods and humanitarian programme, focuses on the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya which cover 80% of the country and experience low, infrequent and unreliable rainfall, thus recurrent droughts.

    The programme seeks to contribute to poverty reduction and resilient livelihoods in the targeted ASAL areas in Kenya. It builds and consolidates on the work done in the previous Sustainable Livelihoods and DRR programme (KEN08-01) and the humanitarian response programme (KEN1101) programme. It therefore has three complementing cycles that explain the resilience and Development Livestock Research for Rural (LRRD) cycle:

    i) responding to disaster,

    ii) supporting recovery and rehabilitation and

    iii) supporting development.

    The ARP programme expected impact is to contribute to poverty reduction and resilient livelihoods in the target ASAL areas in Kenya. The ARP has four main objectives namely:

    1. To improve the sustainable livelihoods’ security of targeted vulnerable HHs through increased income, food and diversified livelihoods strategies.

    2. To ensure that vulnerable pastoralist, agro pastoralist and marginal mixed farmers have secure access to natural resources, particularly water and land, which are managed sustainably.

    3. To enable 52,360 households and communities in the targeted Arid and Semi-Arid Lands districts of Kenya to better mitigate risk, prepare for and respond to, humanitarian crisis and shocks.

    4. To ensure target communities benefit from the achievement of the programme objectives through improved programme management.

    The programme is being implemented by the partners:

    The programme is implemented with financial support to partners while Trócaire has the responsibility for grant management, supporting the capacity development of partners and donor coordination.

    Our Project Approach to Resilience and Sustainable Livelihoods:

    Micro- improving and diversifying crops production through training on improved ecologically sensitive agricultural practices, improved seed varieties, alternative crops and promoting alternative livelihood strategies; livestock breed improvement, improved access to animal health and livestock marketing; improved irrigation techniques; improved post-harvest and pest management practices; strengthening the role and capacities of women and youth on entrepreneurship and micro finance; building capacity for engagement in policy at local levels. Conflict mitigation and resolution in contested areas.

    Meso- Natural Resource Management (NRM) including pasture and rangeland management; county level policy engagement; development of Early Warning Systems (EWS) and Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) and knowledge and skills in disaster prevention and mitigation; Conflict transformation, especially in cross-border situations.

    Macro- creating an enabling environment for resilient livelihoods through lobbying and engaging government on climate change policy, natural resources policies, disaster risk reduction and governance of the ASALs, including responses to potential rights abuses related to the extraction of natural resources.

    Target Groups

    The evaluation will be conducted within the communities in the areas where the partners have been implementing the programme, specifically targeting programme beneficiaries.

    There are approximately 23,000 HHs that have directly benefitted from programme interventions, and they are categorised into four main groups based on their livelihoods:

    i. Pastoralists – Focus on rearing camels, cattle, sheep and goats.

    ii. Agro-pastoralists – these combine extensive livestock rearing and rain-fed cereal production for household consumption.

    iii. Marginal Mixed/ Sedentary farmers – practice mixed farming, cultivating food crops (sorghum, maize, green grams and other cereals) along with modest sheep and goat herding.

    iv. Urban poor – these are households who have lost their livestock and now depend largely on human labour.

    3. Purpose of the End line and Programme Evaluation

    The main purpose of the End Line Study and Programme Evaluation is to establish the changes experienced by this target population with regard to the indicators included in the Results Framework.

    As baseline study was conducted prior to the implementation of this five-year programme (January 2012 – February 2017), so anticipate being able comparison of the results.

    This will form a key element of our commitment to accountability both to the donors and our beneficiaries. The secondary aim of the evaluation is to gain insight into key elements of the implementation process which either explain why reported changes occurred and shed light on how such changes were achieved.

    We expect that an assessment of impact and understanding of key processes will support the generation of programme recommendations that could be considered for the design of future programmes.

    We intend to contract an independent consultant to carry out this work and expect our partners to play a key role in designing and carrying out the evaluation such as confirming the suitability of tools, introducing the consultant to the communities and assisting the consultant in data collection, as well as commenting on the analysis of all findings.

    4. Scope of Work

    This is an external evaluation and should comply with the international evaluation standards (OECD), Trócaire guidelines and provide a space for learning around best practices for supporting target communities. Trócaire is seeking to identify a consultancy team who will undertake this end line evaluation within the agreed terms of reference.

    5. Proposed Methodology

    The evaluation exercise will be consultative and participatory, entailing a combination of desk review, interviews, household surveys, FGDs and data analysis.

    While interviews are a key instrument, a range of data sources will be triangulated to ensure that the evaluation is sound and objective.

    A random sample of the required sample size will be extracted from a beneficiary database of 23,351 households so far reached.

    On the basis of the foregoing, the consultants will further elaborate on the method and approach in a manner commensurate with the assignment at hand and reflect this in the inception report, which will subsequently be approved by the programme team in consultation with key stakeholders.

    The evaluation report will be shared with Trócaire, donors, government agencies, partner organisations, INGOs and NGOs working on resilience particularly in the ASALs of Kenya.

    The key inputs to the evaluation should be as follows:

    · Interviews with key staff such Directors, Project Managers, Project Coordinators, Project Officers, M&E Officers, Field Facilitators/ Monitors and others deemed necessary by the review team.

    · Interviews with stakeholders including respective county government departments, other NGOs working in the various counties and community leaders

    · Field visits, household surveys and FGDs in project sites in the 7 counties – Tharaka Nithi, Kitui, Embu, Turkana, Baringo, Nakuru and Nairobi.

    · Substantive documentation:

    a) At Trócaire level: KEN1102 - ARP Programme Proposal Document (PPD) and budgets; KEN11-02 Results Framework (RF) and baseline - including logic model and risk register; all substantive field reports; Internal review reports (including Gender & HIV mainstreaming, microfinance review and water inspection) and others as deemed necessary by the evaluation team.

    b) At Partners level: Respective partners project proposals, partner RFs, monitoring reports, annual and bi-annual financial and narrative reports and project review reports.

    The Specific Objectives of the end line study/ evaluation are:

    i. To collect data against the programme outcomes and indicators in order to assess progress. There is a total of 20 indicators in the Results Framework (see annex). Data collected should inform the findings of the evaluation;

    ii. Assess the contribution of regional (based at Counties) and policy partners in influencing legislative and policy change at County and national level;

    iii. Examine progress in terms of the following programme parameters:

    · Impact: To assess documentary evidence of impact of the programme with reference to approaches and methodologies used to reduce poverty and builds resilience – knowledge, attitude and practices.

    This includes intended, unintended, positive or negative changes. It involves the main impacts and effects resulting from activities on the local social, economic, environmental and other development indicators. A few questions to consider during the process include:

    · Relevance: Analyse the appropriateness of the project design, activities, strategies and approaches in the light of the operational context, the timeliness of the response and its adaptation to the livelihoods security situations. It involves assessing the extent to which the activities are suited to the priorities and policies of the target groups, target HH and donors.

    · Effectiveness: Analyse the extent to which activities and outputs have attained its objectives. This should include an analysis of programme implementation strategies employed to reach desired results.

    · Impact: To assess documentary evidence of impact of the programme with reference to approaches and methodologies used to reduce poverty and builds resilience – knowledge, attitude and practices.

    This includes intended, unintended, positive or negative changes. It involves the main impacts and effects resulting from activities on the local social, economic, environmental and other development indicators.

    · Sustainability: Assess the extent to which the project interventions took into consideration longer term needs of the target population and to what extent programme results or benefits will be sustainable after programme closure. The programme has to be environmentally as well as financially sustainable.

    · Innovation and technology: To identify, review and recommend promotion and scale up of innovations and appropriate technology that enhance livestock and agricultural productivity and build resilience to drought and other shocks.

    The consultant should follow the design of the baseline study and adopt its tools, while recognising that these may need some adaptation considering that some of the indicators were borrowed from the HEA study in Turkana and Tharaka Nithi respectively.

    UN-WB Aid Coordination Officer Job in Nairobi, Kenya

    Organizational Context

    As part of the Somali Compact, the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and development partners agreed to establish the Somalia Development and Reconstruction Facility (SDRF) as a centerpiece of the New Deal partnership.

    The SDRF is both a coordination framework and a financing architecture for implementing the Somali Compact, with the aim of enhancing the delivery of effective assistance to all Somalis.

    Closely aligned with the Somali Compact principles, it serves as a platform for government and development partners to provide strategic guidance and oversight for development activities in Somalia over the next ten years.

    The SDRF brings together several multi-partner trust funds (referred to as “windows” in the context of the SDRF) under common governance arrangements.

    The windows are being administered by three technical agencies in areas based on comparative advantage: the United Nations (UN), the World Bank and the African Development Bank (AfDB).

    More broadly, the SDRF is intended to facilitate the coordination of the broader array of bilateral activities.

    Since the Compact was endorsed in 2013, the UN and World Bank have worked closely together in Somalia to support the operationalization of the Compact’s aid architecture; align their operational procedures under a common governance structure; and develop innovative approaches to collective risk sharing and risk management.

    Having undergone consultative project development through the newly established aid architecture, 2016 will be a delivery for the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) and the World Bank Multi Partner Fund (MPF).

    It will also be a pivotal year for Somalia with forthcoming elections and the expiry of the Somali Compact.

    More than ever, there is need for coordination across the UN and World Bank to ensure the portfolios deliver in this dynamic, high risk context, and for joint UN-WB positioning and support to the FGS across the aid coordination and aid effectiveness agenda

    III. Summary of Key Functions:

    The UN-WB Aid Coordination Officer will support the United Nations, the World Bank, Government, and contributing donors to the SDRF Trust Funds in the following functions:

    • Aid coordination and Aid Effectiveness

    • Risk Management

    • Joint Programmatic and analytical initiatives

    Aid Coordination and Aid Effectiveness

    • Support teams on fund management and preparation for SDRF SC, PSG WG, HLPF and HLACF meetings. Support the development of a joint WB-UN position on a mutual accountability framework to support the National Development Plan

    • Engage with the Use of Country Systems Working Group to develop and implement a post-2016 roadmap for better use of country systems, establishing concrete, agreed targets for both government and development partners

    Risk Management

    • Support the funds on portfolio risk management, notably by providing analysis for the joint risk management strategy, compiling input from other stakeholders, operationalizing mitigation measures, and reporting on progress.

    • Support coordination with donors on risk management and related matters: monthly consultative group meetings, (including, when appropriate, joint UN-WB donor briefings) the Somalia Donor Group, quarterly sector meetings (WB-specific) and bilateral requests.

    Joint Programmatic and analytical initiatives

    • Enhance UN-WB coordination at the project level, with special focus on projects using country systems (UN National Window and World Bank recipient-executed projects

    • Facilitate analytical work that supports greater UN-WB collaboration and systematically capture lessons learned.

    • Identify opportunities to create integrated Humanitarian/Development solutions, combining the strategic advantages of the UN and WB

  • With the support of the RMU, the Risk Manager will work closely with the RCO, which oversees the secretariat functions for the UN MPTF (note that since March 2015, the Head of RMU and Head of RCO functions have been merged).
  • In all of these tasks, s/he will work closely with a number of actors, including the MoF and MoPIC, and the World Bank and the AfDB.
  • The UN-WB Aid Coordination Officer will be based in Nairobi with travel as needed throughout Somalia. S/he will report directly to the Head of the RC Office for work planning, reporting and administrative requirements.

    IV. Key Results Expected:

    • National Aid coordination structures developed and strengthened

    • Increased adherence to aid effectiveness principles on the part of government, the UN, the WB, and donors

    • SDRF Trust Fund risk management strategy implemented, with government, contributing donors and Fund Administrators

    • Global policies on UN-WB collaboration enhanced

    V. Impact of Results

    Joint UN-WB support to the Federal Government of Somalia will support the coherence of the international community’s engagement in aid coordination and aid effectiveness, and lower transaction costs on all sides.

    Increased and common risk management capacity will strengthen the Trust Funds’ ability to manage risks and protect development gains achieved. Increased synergies across UN and WB portfolios will lead to enhanced results on the ground, greater value for money for donors, and efficiency gains.

    Leadership and Advisor Roles 2016/2017 Job in Kenya

    AGI’s Mission

    Over a billion people in Africa need their governments to provide basic public services such as hospitals, schools, sanitation, employment opportunities and much more.

    When governments fail to deliver, it’s the poor that suffer most. That’s why AGI’s mission is to support effective government in Africa - to make government work for the world’s poorest people.

    To achieve this vision, we provide practical advice and support to help African Leaders bridge the gap between their vision for a better future and the capacity of their governments to achieve it.

    In the last year, this has included helping to end Ebola in West Africa, supporting the set-up of the Development Bank of Nigeria, and reforms in Rwanda that will increase farmers’ incomes and exports.

    Our model combines the experience of AGI’s founder and Patron, Tony Blair, with on-the-ground teams of professionals working shoulder-to-shoulder with counterparts in the heart of partner governments to develop capacity and put in place the skills, systems and structures needed to drive delivery on the ground. Currently, AGI is working to support the governments of Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda, Guinea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique and Nigeria.

    AGI’s People

    AGI teams understand that politics is as important as technical knowhow when it comes to getting things done. They are excellent at building and maintaining relationships, possess strong leadership skills, and skilled in helping our partner governments solve some of the continent’s most complex delivery challenges.

    We are bound by a unique set of shared values; we’re bold in our approach, relentless in pursuit of impact, led by our government partners not by our own agenda, passionate about Africa’s potential and independent in our advice and analyses. Our work has the potential to help change millions of lives for the better.

    We are seeking individuals with 7+ year’s relevant professional experience within public/civil services worldwide; strategy consulting; relevant industry sectors; private equity and finance; and international development.

    AGI is committed to building multi-disciplinary teams and are particularly interested in candidates with experience planning and delivery, performance management processes; change management, executive/private office support; or government and strategic communications.

    For any of our roles, experience of living and working in developing countries is desirable but not essential.

    Candidates who speak fluent French and/or Portuguese, will be prioritized for roles in our Francophone and Lusophone countries.

    Leadership Positions

    AGI Country Heads have full responsibility of all programme activities, including managing a team of 4-10 people, project budget oversight, strategic programme design and the delivery and evaluation of project goals.

    This includes managing relations with senior government stakeholders, including, in some countries, the President. For these challenging and demanding roles we are looking for exceptional performance in the AGI competencies and proven experience of building senior relationships and managing high performing teams.

    Governance Advisor roles

    AGI’s Governance Advisors work within Centre of Government institutions – Presidents’ and Prime Ministers’ offices; cross-government co-ordination offices; and strategy, policy and delivery units, as well as within Priority Ministries. These include:

  • Finance and Investment – individuals with experience of economic planning, project finance, innovative public finance models, donor and financier coordination, and/or securing access to finance for the private sector and farmers. We are also seeking individuals with experience of the ICT and innovation industry.
  • Energy – individuals with government, consulting or industry experience in the electricity sector, e.g. in energy policy, the performance of energy utilities, public-private partnerships, and the management of power generation and distribution projects.
  • Transport Infrastructure – individuals with government, consulting or industry experience e.g. the performance of infrastructure ministries and agencies, public-private partnerships, project management and oversight of major infrastructure projects in developing countries.
  • Private Sector Development – individuals with experience in investment facilitation/ promotion, business linkages and value chain coordination, managing investment deals in emerging market economies and/or delivering organisational change.
  • Agriculture – individuals with experience in value chain development, investment appraisal, and business planning and market analysis. Experience in emerging market economies preferred.

    Consultant Opportunity in Nairobi, Kenya – Development of SOP for Reintegration of Ex-Combatants in Somalia.

    Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.

    IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

    Rationale

    Following the establishment of the FGoS in 2012, the country is experiencing increased political stability and engagement with international partners.

    Despite these gains in the political arena, the security situation remains highly volatile and continues to challenge operations in Somalia.

    In particular, there has been an overall increase in AS movements in the regions neighbouring Mogadishu including Gedo, Lower Juba, Lower Shabelle, Hiiran, and Middle Shabelle.

    Al-Shabaab (AS) continues to target government officials, the Somali National Army (SNA), the African Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), and UN personnel, posing threats to stabilization and security in Somalia.

    While the number of active AS is not fully known (estimated to be 5,000 – 7,000 combatants), a steady increase has been observed in the disengagement of AS combatants.

    According to a rough estimate by NISA and DDR Ministry of the Interim Southwest Administration, since January 2013 there have been 400 individuals who have surrendered and disengaged themselves from AS in Baidoa alone.

    The reinsertion and reintegration process can be particularly jarring for ex-combatants, many of whom face community stigmatization, psychological trauma, and the same set of socioeconomic conditions that may have originally pushed them to engage with AS.

    Without governmental support structures and a strong system for community-led reintegration, an ex-combatant may fail to reintegrate in a socially constructive manner and become a danger to himself or others.

    Although there is general guidance under the National Programme for The Treatment and Handling of Disengaging Combatants and Youth at Risk in Somalia (National Programme), the reinsertion and reintegration process has not followed a standard set of operating procedures (SOP), with practices often differing significantly from one regional government to the next.

    Furthermore, destabilizing factors such as economic instability or the socio-political exclusion of certain clans can compromise an ex-combatant’s ability to successfully reintegrate if not addressed in a consistent, efficient, or effective manner.

    Therefore, the absence of a universally accepted SOP increases the likelihood that they will reengage in violent activities and reduces the possibility for achieving a lasting peace at the national level.

    Objective

    The objective of the consultancy is to develop an SOP for the reintegration of ex-combatants at transition centres in Somalia.

    The SOP will clearly outline the process an ex-combatant should go through once they have disengaged from AS or other militia, assign roles and responsibilities to various stakeholders in support of this process, identify potential challenges to the process and provide solutions to these challenges, and include any recommended reporting documents to facilitate standardization and formalization.

    To accomplish this, it is expected the Consultant will spend some time in Somalia conducting research and meeting relevant stakeholders.

    The consultancy will also include a capacity building component, with the consultant leading a thorough training for government officials and other stakeholders on the newly developed SOP once it has been completed and approved.

    Training will take place in Somalia at locations to be determined.

    Deliverables

    The Consultant will be responsible for producing the following deliverables:

    1.) Literature review of subject matter

    2.) Inception report outlining proposed methodology, research tools, stakeholder engagement, etc.

    3.) Standard Operating Procedure for Reintegration of Ex-Combatants in Somalia

    4.) Study on the socioeconomic backgrounds of ex-combatants

    5.) Pre-training report outlining proposed curriculum, methodology, and schedule

    6.) Training for government and other stakeholders on SOP

    7.) Post-training report summarizing training activities, recommendations for future government activities, and outlining necessary follow-up items for IOM

    Organizational Arrangements

    The Consultant will report directly to the IOM Project Manager (PM) for the Socioeconomic Reintegration of Ex-Combatants and Youth at Risk project, under the general guidance of the IOM DDR Coordinator.

    The PM will provide some relevant background documents to supplement the Consultant’s research, and will facilitate the Consultant’s activities while in Somalia.

    Otherwise, the Consultant is expected to be able to work independently and support themselves.

    Qualifications

    The consultant should possess the following minimum qualifications:

    · PhD in a related field or Master’s Degree with additional years of work experience and qualifications will be considered.

    · At least 8 years work experience in DDR policy development at the international level; experience related to Somalia an advantage.

    · Proven experience producing SOPs or operations manuals for federal government; experience related to Somalia an advantage.

    · Superior research, analysis, and writing skills;

    · Experience collaborating with high level government officials;

    · Fluency in English required; working knowledge of Somali an advantage.

    Other

    Any offer made to the candidate in relation to this vacancy notice is subject to funding confirmation.

    Appointment will be subject to certification that the candidate is medically fit for appointment and verification of residency, visa and authorizations by the concerned Government, where applicable

    How to apply:

    M-KOPA Solar Head of Reporting & Accounting Job in Nairobi Kenya

    M-KOPA is seeking:

    Position Title: Head of Reporting & Accounting

    Location: Nairobi, HQ

    Position Start: As soon As Possible

    Reporting to: Director of Finance – East Africa

    Overall Purpose: M-KOPA is seeking a dedicated and highly motivated Head of Reporting & Accounting to join the fast growing Finance team.

    In this role, you will be responsible for Accounting, Reporting (including ERP), Consolidation and Budgeting support – working closely with the Treasury and Controlling functions.

    Who We Are: M-KOPA Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of "pay-as-you-go" energy for off-grid customers.

    Since its commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 350,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day.

    The success of M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use instalment plan.

    Customers acquire solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage "credits" for Kshs 50, or less than the price of traditional kerosene lighting. After one year of payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more power.

    All revenues are collected in real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in Kenya) and embedded GSM sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor real time performance and regulate usage based upon payments.

    This connected design means that M-KOPA is processing vast amounts of data (i.e. over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via the company's proprietary cloud platform, M-KOPAnet.

    As of July, 2016 M-KOPA employs over 900 full time staff across East Africa and sells through a network of over 1,000 direct sales agents. It has also commenced licensing its technology to partners in other markets.

    M-KOPA has been recognised for its pioneering business mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize, being selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014 Bloomberg New Energy Finance awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award.

    M-KOPA has also successfully tested a range of new products that leverage its relationship with customers, and M-KOPA’s unique competencies in mobile telecommunications and ICT.

    To ensure that the research and development of new products add value to (and do not distract from) its core business, M-KOPA is establishing the M-KOPA Labs.

    The Labs will be a dedicated business unit within M-KOPA that will define and test extensions of the M-KOPA asset-based credit model for off-grid-power to new products and services.
