Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator, Latin American Foundation for the Future (LAFF)
Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an essential part of LAFF’s work: it allows us to identify areas of success and areas which need improvement, as well as to make sure that all of LAFF’s activities work to support our long term goals and mission. Under the supervision of the Programme Manager, the M&E Coordinator will develop LAFF’s M&E Strategy, aiming to monitor and evaluate the progress, effectiveness and impact of our programs and interventions through a participatory and culturally sensitive approach.
You will lead all M&E activities for LAFF, measure indicators, work closely with our local partners and beneficiaries in Peru, and produce internal and external reports. LAFF’s relationship with partners is very close and you will have independence to propose frameworks for data collection, summarising and storing, as well as compiling reports to present data and draw conclusions.
The M&E Coordinator will have a logical approach to collecting data, recognising the specific context in which we work and how that affects both quantitative and qualitative data. Awareness of LAFF’s context will also be essential for assessing risks and assumptions when developing project logframes.
To Note: This position is unpaid. Successful applicants will be contacted to arrange an online interview.
The Latin American foundation for the Future (LAFF) is a UK-based charity supporting marginalised children and young people in Peru. We work through local partner organisations in Cusco and support activities and projects in the areas of formal education; vocational skills and personal development; sustainability, including income generation, cost reduction and capacity building. We strive to empower our beneficiaries enabling them to become independent and sustainable.
Objectives of this Role
Under the supervision of the Program Manager, the Monitor & Evaluation Coordinator will be expected to carry out the following tasks:
Good to have
LAFF is looking for an individual who is both insightful and analytic, with the ability to identify underlying connections in data. Furthermore, the right candidate will be able to communicate their findings of patterns and indicators in a way that is accessible to a non-expert audience, so that they can interpret results easily. Organisation and time management skills are crucial, as M&E will form a part of project development, however there will often be multiple team members involved in the overall project. The M&E Coordinator needs to be able to calculate the time that each task will take and meet their deadlines. Finally, the Coordinator will believe in the potential of individuals and organisations to grow, and will be constantly looking for improvement opportunities.
