Jessica Hayes – Principal Manager, Services
Jessica is a Principal Manager within our Services Team at Integrity, based in London. She supports monitoring, evaluation and learning, project implementation and research design on mostly – but not only – the East Africa portfolio.
Jessica’s interest in fieldwork developed when she was awarded a Mobility Scholarship from the University of Ottawa to conduct field research in Senegal on the role of football clubs in local development. In 2011 she moved to South Sudan and later to Kenya to be closer to the field. Jessica managed a team of researchers in Libya to conduct a series of research pieces on civil society and the media sector to inform the design of a demand-side accountability project. Other experiences include managing a ‘Do No Harm’ analysis project of a humanitarian assistance programme in Syria.
She has a Bachelor’s degree in International Development and Globalization from the University of Ottawa and an MSc in Violence, Conflict, and Development from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
