Research Manager – Learning and Monitoring Programme Somalia
Research Manager – Learning and Monitoring Programme Somalia – HRO-168
Full-time position, based in Nairobi, Kenya with up to 20% travel to Somalia/Somaliland
Closing date for applications: 21 June 2019
The Department for International Development (DFID) is funding the Learning and Monitoring Programme Somalia (LAMPS) to provide third-party monitoring services to a representative proportion of DFID’s Somalia portfolio and across its Country Operational Plan. Following a review of the Learning offer, LAMPS has adjusted its programming to provide the option for DFID to request quick turn around research/ learning pieces in support of the Somalia programme. While the scope of work will vary, it is expected that each piece of work will be completed within a two to three month period from initial request to completion. The Research Manager will oversee all stages of the in-depth process, from agreeing initial concept to the developing of the concept paper and delivery while working closely with DFID throughout.
Reporting to the Team Leader, the Research Manager will lead the design and delivery of In-depth deliverables. This will require the Research Manager to consult with DFID Somalia in the initial concept and design work, to market the offer, to hone, prioritise and cost out requests, to link with LAMPS members to identify appropriate consultants and staff to undertake requests and to project manage the process through delivery to dissemination of results. It is likely that there will be overlapping requests and timing of some of this work.
