CAMRIS seeks to engage a highly qualified and motivated team to implement the anticipated USAID Office of Transition Initiatives (USAID/OTI) Nigeria and Lake Chad Basin (NLCB) program. The 43-month program will support locally driven efforts to strengthen stability in Lake Chad Basin countries. All positions require a willingness to travel throughout Nigeria, including the northeast. Women are strongly encouraged to apply.
Assigned to an activity management team (AMT), the Monitoring, Evaluation, & Reporting Specialists (MERS) monitor activities being implemented, assess the intended and unintended outcomes, tests the theories of change and assumptions underpinning the program’s approaches and interventions, and shares findings and lessons to inform future programming. MERSes will be based in all NLCB offices, initially Abuja, Maiduguri, and Damaturu, and activities will be carried out in targeted areas and communities across northeastern Nigeria as well as in communities along Nigeria’s borders and may extend into neighboring LCB countries. Extensive and frequent travel throughout the northeast is expected and required. MERSes gather, analyze, and process complex information related to all aspects of program activity implementation. MERSes employ a range of approaches and tools and work with and train external parties to carry out monitoring and evaluation of NLCB activities. MERSes contribute to cultivating a culture of learning and continual improvement within their assigned AMT and across the program.
