Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.
PSI seeks an M&E Consultant to support the creation of a flexible, feasible, and nimble monitoring plan for the exciting A360 project that addresses adolescent girls’ sexual and reproductive health in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania.
With the generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), PSI is implementing A360, an innovative investment with a consortium of partners including the Society for Family Health/Nigeria (SFH/Nigeria), Triggerise, the Center on the Developing Adolescent from the University of California, Berkeley, and IDEO.org. The project is working with adolescents, young people, parents, community members, providers, and policy makers in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania to design scalable, cost-effective models aimed at increasing voluntary, modern contraceptive use among adolescent girls aged 15-19.
A draft monitoring plan for the project has been completed, but it requires refinement to meet the rigorous criteria of the donors, while also meeting programmatic needs for flexibility and creativity in reporting and learning and providing a key data source to the project’s external evaluation.
We seek a creative and self-motivated M&E Consultant with in-depth field experience in the design and implementation of large-scale monitoring plans to capture and drive program achievements. Experience with multi-country projects and/or M&E for adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health programs is a plus.
Sound like you? Read on.
You will work closely with country-level programmatic and M&E teams in the three countries and consult with the project’s external evaluation team to refine a draft monitoring plan for the A360 project focusing on making it more:
We currently expect to need a consultant for about 30 days in January-March 2017 for this very high-profile project. Much of this work may be done remotely, but the consultant should expect to spend 4-5 days in each project country (Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania) working closely with the country office M&E and program teams. This position will require close coordination and collaboration with country teams as well as with PSI’s Evidence Teams such as Evidence for Implementation, Strategic Research and Evaluation, Program Analytics, and the RH Health Researchers.
