Organisation: Girl Hub
Closing date: 4 February 2015
Job type: Paid
Salary notes: Competitive salary.

Job Title: Senior Manager, Monitoring, Learning and Results, Ethiopia
Reporting Lines: Reports to Ethiopia Country Director and Senior Director of Monitoring, Learning and Results
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (the position requires regular travel within Ethiopia and internationally)
Contract: One year, with the option to extend
Girl Hub's mission is to empower the 250 million adolescent girls living in poverty to reach their full potential. Girls are a proven force for change and are a catalyst to end global poverty.
When you improve girls' lives through education, health, safety and economic opportunity, these changes have a positive ripple effect on their families, communities and nations. Our work aims to shift the social norms that hold girls back, and drive better investments that directly benefit girls.
Girl Hub is a strategic collaboration between the Department for International Development and the Nike Foundation, designed to bring together the expertise of both organisations to transform the lives of adolescent girls. We currently operate in Rwanda, Nigeria and Ethiopia. We also support work for girls in other countries, such as Kenya and DRC, from our global team in London.
About Ethiopia
Ethiopia’s growth and expansion in recent years have been among the most impressive on the African continent and its capital Addis Ababa is a vibrant and exciting city to live in. The Government of Ethiopia is capable and committed to economic growth and development, and is a proven partner in making progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), but its approach to political governance, including gender advocacy and promoting rights, presents challenges.
In Ethiopia, adolescent girls aged 10-19 make up 13% of the population. Among these girls, nearly 7 million live on less than US$2 a day and 41% of females marry by the age of 18. One in three girls doesn’t go to school and one in three girls can’t read. While there is a strong commitment from government to do more for women and youth, there is not currently an explicit commitment to reach adolescent girls, and development programming focused on gender typically reaches older women, while youth-focused work tends to reach mostly boys. Adolescent girls are left behind.
About Girl Hub’s work in Ethiopia
The starting point for everything Girl Hub Ethiopia does is to understand what it means to be a girl in Ethiopia. Our research uses engaging and participatory approaches to better understand girls’ lives, aspirations and challenges. We work with policy makers, donors, implementing agencies and partners in the private sector, who can deliver large-scale programmes and ensure girls are at the heart of the development agenda in Ethiopia.
To shift perceptions of and behaviours and toward girls in Ethiopia, Girl Hub has created an innovative youth media brand called Yegna. It consists of a radio drama, talk show and music platform that champion girls and create a national conversation about their potential. The radio drama and talk show address issues such as friendship, violence against girls, child marriage, teenage pregnancy and school attendance. Yegna uses fictional female and male characters to role model positive behaviours for a diverse audience of listeners. Yegna music drives listeners to the radio drama and talk show and reinforces the messaging in the radio programming.
Context of the role
The Senior MLR Manager will be responsible for driving a robust framework for monitoring, learning and results for Girl Hub Ethiopia, and will work across the organization to ensure engagement in rigorous use of evidence-based learning. A strong focus of the role will be to document and disseminate Girl Hub’s learning so far. A global evaluation of Girl Hub’s work is currently planned to take place between February-May 2015. The Sr. MLR Manager will manage specific pieces of work feeding into this review.
The post-holder will report to the GHE Country Director and will line manage the MLR Coordinator in Ethiopia. He or she will work closely with Girl Hub’s Senior MLR Director in London as his/her technical line manager, as well as with external M&E advisers and other Girl Hub/Nike Foundation staff, including Insights Managers and Girl Specialists.

There is a significant opportunity to contribute to the global evidence base on girls’ empowerment and on the transformative potential of using branded social communications for positive social norm change. The ideal candidate will be able to identify learning and evidence generation priorities, design robust research to meet data needs and communicate findings effectively and persuasively to diverse audiences.
