Position : Manager, Measurement & Evaluation

About the Role

We are seeking full-time M&E Manager to join our team: people who are eager for a career where they can continue developing in the field of Measurement and Evaluation (M&E). In this role, every project that you will lead and provide support to —every data collection, analysis, visualization and reporting that you produce— will inform a decision to keep improving education for thousands of children at once.

The M&E Manager will support two main strands of work, although they may also be required to engage in other work as needed. First, they will often lead a team of enumerators who collect data periodically and report to the M&E Director in Lagos (Nigeria). The M&E Manager are expected to execute M&E Plans as designed and approved by the respective programmes. As such, they will need to have extraordinary logistical and planning mindsets, as these rounds of data collection often involve balancing many responsibilities, priorities and stakeholder relationships at once. We are seeking M&E Manager who are able to effectively work with people from diverse backgrounds, think critically and make sound on-the-spot judgment calls for tricky methodological and logistical issues, and have a brilliant mind for people and processes.  

The data collection exercises where the M&E Manager will work often take place within our Nigerian territories (EdoBEST in Edo State, EKOEXCEL in Lagos State, KwaraLEARN in Kwara State, Bridge Academies in Lagos and Osun states, and in future launches in other states). As such, travel is required for the position.

Besides leading routine data collections that are part of our main impact evaluations, the M&E Manager will support additional data collection, both quantitative and qualitative, as required by the team. They will conduct interviews, focus groups, and case studies; and they will often be in charge of synthesizing and writing their findings.

The M&E Manager will report to the M&E Regional Director for Nigeria, and will work closely with the Vice President of M&E and the M&E Analysts in our global shared services.

What You Should Have

  • A University degree – ideally (but not necessarily) in a relevant academic discipline, such as Computer Science, Education, Economics, Public Policy, Business, or Statistics with at least 5 years experience in M&E, Research or project Management
  • Organization skills – to successfully direct and oversee all quality assurance procedures and coordinate production processes you should have strong organization skills
  • Communication skills – to provide reports to production managers and business leaders to influence decision-making you will need effective verbal and written communication skills
  • Technical skills – to develop, refine, and troubleshoot data collection and reporting tools.
  • Familiarity with data management and analysis tools like ODK, KoBo Collect, Survey CTO, Qualtrics, Excel, Stata, Tableau, SAS, or R. 
  • Global team management experience – to direct, mentor, and oversee members of the Data & Analytics team, you should possess effective leadership, coordination, and motivation skills
  • Passion – for NewGlobe’s mission.

You’re also:

  • A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
  • A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, NewGlobe works in often fragile, sometimes volatile low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand. 
  • A relentless advocate – The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience, and value.
  • A malleable learner – You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
  • A data-driven decision-maker – When making decisions, you don’t rely on your intuition alone. You collect data, you analyze it and make decisions with clear justifications.
  • A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
