Prosperity Fund - Evaluation & Learning - Team Leader

UK Based – Close proximity to London

• The E&L Team Leader will lead the independent Evaluation & Learning project for the £1.2billion UK-government Prosperity Fund and its constituent programmes.

• This high profile position will oversee the E&L process; manage the established team of 50+ technical and evaluation experts and report regularly to stakeholders across Whitehall, especially the FCO.

The Prosperity Fund is an innovative UK Government initiative to promote economic growth and reduce poverty, whilst creating opportunities for trade and investment (especially for UK companies). The Prosperity Fund is jointly sponsored by FCO, DFID, HMT, Cabinet Office, DIT. The Fund will work across several predominantly middle-income countries, including Brazil, India, China, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Colombia, Peru, Vietnam and the Philippines.

The Evaluation & Learning programme will deliver a stream of evaluations and learning activities for both the overall Fund and its constituent programmes, helping to maximise impact, support further programming and ensure that the Fund achieves its goals.

Key outcomes for the Evaluation & Learning project include:
• Assess to what extent the Fund is contributing towards:
o Promoting growth in ways likely to reduce poverty and promote gender equality.
o Creation of opportunities for international business, including UK companies.
o Value for money, in the use of resources and the results achieved.
• Support organisational learning and contribute to accountability mechanisms

Essential Team Leader Credentials:
• Substantial leadership experience in international development programmes.
• Management of large and complex teams across a variety of International programmes.
• The gravitas and experience to manage key relationships within Whitehall.
• While the Team Leader does not need to be an evaluation specialist, they should have a good conceptual understanding of evaluation and its purpose, and of organisational learning in an international development context.
• Ability to interpret client and stakeholder needs and address these in innovative ways.

This role is based in the Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning team at WYG’s offices in the City of London. Some international travel may be required.
