Vacancy: M&E Analyst (Oct 2020 – May 2021)

TOMAK is currently seeking an experienced M&E Analyst to enhance the program’s data collection processes and infrastructure. The program maintains a number of monitoring and results measurement tools, including i) a Beneficiary and Activity Database (B&AD); ii) a Crop Monitoring System (CMS) that manages and reports detailed crop production data generated from TOMAK’s field program including crop areas (measured in m2) and volumes harvested (measured in kg); and iii) a number of surveys to evaluate the impact of various program interventions. All applications make heavy use of ONA online surveys and Power-BI dashboards.

The M&E Analyst will be tasked with ensuring quality data is collected and inputted into the CMS. This will be done by identifying the key challenges in field data collection, monitoring and reporting, and by facilitating appropriate trainings/capacity building activities for TOMAK field staff and Agricultural Extension Workers (AEWs) from the Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries (MAF). A secondary objective is to make an assessment of this existing database structure and identify possible areas for adjustment. The M&E Analyst will be responsible for conducting regular data quality checks for both the CMS and the B&AD.
