- Coordinate and collaborate with consortium members and local implementing partners to ensure that M&E data are collected and analysed in a consistent, coherent and effective manner across the consortium.
- Support the Consortium Manager in preparing annual reports and other performance evaluations to inform the donor and other stakeholders of project progress and results and facilitate reflection and learning sessions to understand what has worked well and what could be improved.
- Ensure that M&E results are integrated into project decision-making and planning processes and support the consortium members in applying lessons learned to improve future project implementation.
- Provide technical assistance and support to consortium members in the consistent and coherent design, implementation and evaluation of their activities.
- Support the development and dissemination of project results, including the development of presentations, publications and other materials.
- Stay up-to-date on best practices and emerging trends in M&E and identify opportunities to improve and innovate the project’s M&E approach.
- A Bachelor’s degree in a field relevant to M&E (e.g. international development, social research).
- At least five years of experience in M&E of development projects. A focus on climate change adaptation is an advantage.
- Knowledge of M&E best practices and experience in designing and implementing M&E plans, especially in complex projects. Experience with M&E in consortia projects with different organisations is an advantage.

Accountability within CARE:
A commitment to CARE values and CARE’s integrity framework is essential to working with CARE. Any candidate offered a job with CARE will be expected to adhere to the following key areas of accountability:
