We are currently recruiting a global Social Science and Evaluation advisor to lead the development of socio-economic monitoring and evaluation (M&E) approaches across our growing portfolio. This exciting position will play a key role in delivering an organisational M&E framework that enables us to track the socio-economic outcomes of our work, alongside conservation and ecological changes.

This position will work closely with our field teams, partners and communities to provide guidance, training and support, enabling us to develop and implement innovative socio-economic research that informs decision-making and contributes to improving the impact of our work.

We are looking for an individual who will champion and celebrate a culture of data and learning within Blue Ventures, and who is open to new ideas and embraces innovation. The successful candidate will be a motivated, proactive social scientist, with substantial experience in mixed methods research and evaluation. You will have a proven track record in the design and management of socio-economic monitoring and evaluation/research; have strong analytical capabilities combined with a passion for communicating and sharing findings to support decision making. You will have experience of developing participatory processes to support M&E at the community level and ideally, you will have experience of community-based conservation and development initiatives in Blue Ventures geographical areas of operation.

You will thrive in environments that are collegiate and inspiring, and be able to demonstrate experience of working independently and solving complex problems in challenging situations. Assessment of applications will include candidates’ alignment with BV’s core values and mission to support human rights-based approaches to marine conservation and fisheries management.

Reporting to the Head of Monitoring and Evaluation, this is a full-time role with regular travel (Covid-19 permitting) to work closely with overseas colleagues, partners, field teams and communities.
