BRAC International is seeking competent, dynamic and self-motivated individuals to join the Ultra Poor Graduation Initiative as M&E Advisors. The BRAC Ultra-Poor Graduation Initiative (UPGI) is a flagship program of BRAC International at the global level that seeks to advance the use of proven Graduation approaches by governments at scale to address extreme poverty. UPGI’s primary works with a range of global and national partners in pursuit of this mission. Focal countries include, but are not limited to, Philippines, India, Pakistan, South Africa and Egypt.

UPGI recognises evidence generation and use as powerful drivers of progress in pursuit of this mission and is building a dynamic and growing Monitoring, Evidence and Learning function. Working in partnership with UPGI country teams and functional units and as part of the MEL team, the M&E advisor will be responsible for developing the monitoring function at UPGI – establishing measurement approaches for UPGI’s strategic interventions; ensuring high standards of monitoring, evaluation, learning and reporting on progress and results across the portfolio; managing the day-to-day implementation of the monitoring data collection and analysis, and informing and enabling evidence-informed strategic decisions.

It is an exciting time to join UPGI as we work to build an innovative MEL system for an agile and adaptive portfolio of work – developing rigorous approaches for monitoring ‘hard to measure’ strategies and outcomes, designing innovative solutions to link MEL work at the country level to the MEL and research at the portfolio/programme level, and embedding systematic, coherent monitoring, learning and reflection processes that allow UPGI to be agile as it learns and adapts.

The right candidate will have had exposure to adaptive MEL system design and implementation, and familiarity with measurement strategies for ‘hard to measure’ intervention strategies such as advocacy, technical assistance and/ or research uptake. In addition to technical M&E skills, they will have an appreciation of the role that different types of evidence (e.g. data, research, evaluation, experiential learning, etc.) play in strategy and management, and understand how to connect project level data collection and analysis with wider portfolio learning agendas. They will have excellent communication skills and a high level of analytical and strategic thinking, with a critical and analytical eye for both detail and the bigger picture. They will show a deep commitment to creating and delivering an inclusive MEL system and environment and have high regard for the sensitivities of working with and for people living in extreme poverty.

The UPGI team is globally located and the position may be based in many possible locations, though preference will be given to candidates with the right to live and work in one of BRAC International’s hubs in Washington DC, New York, London, the Hague, Nairobi, or Dhaka. The role will be expected to undertake international travel for purposes related to monitoring and learning purposes.
