Job Description

Monitoring & Evaluation Officer Talent PoolThe United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency, fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to end global hunger. Every day, WFP works around the globe to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need. We are building a Monitoring & Evaluation Officer Talent Pool that will be comprised of highly competent professionals who can play a key role in helping achieve zero hunger. All applicants will go through a comprehensive selection and assessment process to demonstrate their technical and organisational capabilities and the potential to grow and work across different field locations. Successful applicants will remain in the Talent Pool for 12 months, and can be considered for short or long-term international professional employment opportunities at entry and mid-management levels (P2, P3 and P4), in Country Offices, Regional Bureaux and Headquarters.Strategic Purpose of the FunctionThis job combines two separate but inter-related functions: monitoring and evaluation (M&E). In WFP M&E involves the collection and analysis of indicator achievement data in relation to outputs, outcomes, processes and cross-cutting concerns such as gender and protection. At the country office level, monitoring is a managerial function encompassing the collection and review of project level information to know how an operation is proceeding and what aspects of it, if any, require adjustment. This job in WFP is also responsible for the conduct of project level 'Reviews' and decentralized evaluations, which entail a more in-depth assessment than is expected during on-going monitoring. The key objective of monitoring and project reviews is to provide quality evidence on achievement of results in order to inform operational decision making and quality reporting. Evaluation provides periodic, independent evidence of results and analysis of the factors influencing them in order to improve performance and for accountability.Job Purpose P2 level: Monitoring & Evaluation Officers at the P2 level are part of a team where senior support is readily available and supervise a small number of junior staff to ensure that activities and project objectives are achieved in full. They support monitoring and evaluation activities within a country of field office, ensuring that WFP programmes generate quality evidence on the outcomes and effects of WFP's food assistance activities on the lives of beneficiaries with which to inform operational decision making and strategic reorientation. P3 level: Monitoring & Evaluation Officers at the P3 level are found in an environment where the complexity of food assistance programmes is high (e.g. greater security risks, wider range of programmes, higher levels of partnership working) and are often required to lead and motivate a team. They lead or support monitoring and evaluation activities within a country of field office, ensuring that WFP programmes generate quality evidence on the outcomes and effects of WFP's food assistance activities on the lives of beneficiaries with which to inform operational decision making and strategic reorientation. P4 level: Monitoring & Evaluation Officers at the P4 level formulate Regional/Country monitoring and evaluation strategies, lead various initiatives and contribute to policy development. They also have oversight responsibilities including monitoring compliance to corporate standards. They coordinate and support WFP staff to generate quality evidence on the outcomes and effects of WFP's food assistance activities on the lives of beneficiaries with which to inform operational decision making and strategic reorientation and ensure appropriate tools and systems are implemented to demonstrate consistent results to internal and external stakeholders.
