Founded in 2015, Big Win Philanthropy is an independent foundation that invests in children and young people in developing countries to improve their lives and to maximize demographic dividends for long term economic growth.
We see children and young people as a critical asset for national development and stability. Our focus is on investments in sub-Saharan Africa that promote three areas of human capital growth: brain development, education and youth employment. Led by the priorities of our African partners, we support leaders to effectively define and deliver the ‘big win’ goals in these areas that they regard as most important for their countries and regions.
Programme Officer (Monitoring and Evaluation)
Location: London, with international travel
Reporting to the Director, Monitoring and Evaluation, the Programme Officer will support programmes related to nutrition, brain development, education, and youth employment. With country level experience of monitoring, evaluation and evidence analysis gained through research or with an international NGO, this will be your focus, but you’ll also engage in programme design, implementation and management.
Your rigor and exceptional communication abilities will enable you to provide robust support to colleagues in the wider Programme team in reviewing evidence generated by quantitative and qualitative studies, to provide guidance to government leaders on prioritisation and decision making.
A Masters or PhD level education in a relevant field is strongly preferred, together with experience of working in different countries in the global south.
At Big Win Philanthropy you can expect a culture of collaboration, support, ambition, innovation and true partnership working. We are an organisation that encourages new ideas and are passionate about helping transform outcomes for children and young people in sub-Saharan African countries. We believe we are uniquely placed to leverage impact that extends beyond this initiative.
If you share our values and our vision for transformational change, we want to hear from you!
