In 2012 Save the Children Italia (SCIT) created a dedicated unit on thematic development and quality (TDQ) within its international programs. In this context, a 2012 – 2015 strategy was drafted to define the main thematic priority areas for SCIT in the new SCI context, including sub thematic areas and quality management. A Monitoring, Research and Innovation Advisor is required to ensure the quality of our MEAL systems and approaches, to ensure that learning is included in our strategic planning and program development and to ensure that innovation and best practices are encompassed in SCIT supported projects. The Advisor will contribute to improving program quality by providing direction in the design, implementation and evaluation of improved data collection, monitoring and evaluation, analysis and data use efforts. The post-holder will roll out support for Country Offices to meet/exceed the SCI quality standards, in coordination with SCI’s head offices and the Global Initiatives.
The MEAL Advisor will develop and implement a realistic MEAL strategy and system, ensuring that they are institutionalized within the existing project cycle management framework, and that staff have the capacity to implement them. The MEAL Advisor will have a key role in rolling out a MEAL framework and systems with a focus on SCIT’s most strategic programs.
