Comic Relief Organisational Strengthening Consultancy Jobs in Malawi


  • This consultancy will facilitate the production of organisational strengthening (OS) plans by and for up to 21 different funded partners, and these plans will be used as a basis for allocating the funds available for OS activities for funded partners.

  • The ultimate aim of the OS support is to leave behind a cohort of strong, effective and sustainable CSO partners able to represent local people’s priorities.

  • Comic Relief is therefore seeking an external consultant/s to work with up to 21 funded partners to conduct organisational assessments and to develop OS plans by August 2021.


  • We are searching for individuals or consultancy organisations based in, or from, Sub-Saharan Africa with the following skills and experience:

  • Excellent facilitation, listening and analysis skills.

  • Demonstrated experience working with civil society organisations of different sizes and capacities in the Global South including small CBOs, small to medium sized local CSOs, national NGOs, and country offices of international NGOs.

  • Demonstrated understanding of capacity strengthening/institutional development principles and approaches, including capacity building, institutional strengthening and accompaniment.

  • Experience in conducting organisational assessments, and familiarity with a range of organisational assessment tools.

  • Expertise in the effective application of capacity strengthening tools and approaches resulting in enhanced organisational capacity and performance.

  • Experience in mentoring, coaching, facilitation and training applying adult learning principles and practices for capacity strengthening and partnership building through formal and informal methods.

  • Ability to listen to diverse views and experiences, consolidate, and interpret them.

  • Ability to clearly communicate findings and recommendations in an accessible way to a variety of audiences and stakeholders.

  • Experience in specified programme countries and themes is desirable.

  • Experience delivering meetings remotely in an effective
    and engaging manner.

  • Budget available is up to GBP 68,250 including fees, VAT if applicable and any expenses.

  • This work is likely to be completed remotely given covid-19 travel restrictions, but it is possible that at least some of the meetings could be completed in person depending on the location of the consultants and the preferences of the funded partners, as well as the laws and regulations in each country.

  • Please budget for travel and meeting expenses accordingly if you think that it is feasible to complete some meetings in person.

  • Agreed expenses can be claimed against receipts. Value for money will be considered when analysing the applications.

  • Consultants can bid for work with all 21 partners or with a subset of partners.

  • The maximum budget of 68,250 GBP above is based on working with all 21 partners; if a consultant proposes to work with a subset of partners, or if not all partners choose to participate, the budget is expected to be proportionately lower.
