INTRAC is a not for profit organisation based in Oxford/UK, and with a small office in Kyrgyzstan. We exist to enable civil society to challenge poverty and inequality, and for it to empower people to gain greater control over their own future. We support civil society organisations around the world, but by choice we work in countries and regions where pervasive poverty and inequality persists. We seek to strengthen regional and in-country access to sustainable, high quality, transformative capacity development support for civil society; and to influence policy makers, government regulators and funders to improve civil society-related policy, strategy and practice. In practical terms we focus on services and trends in the following areas: Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning; Organisational Development and Change; and Strategy and Programme Design. Our work is funded through a combination of consultancy contracts, training fees and grant funding.

INTRAC is recruiting a senior research consultant with expertise in the field of Monitoring & Evaluation and Impact Assessment (MEIA), who will develop and deliver on commissioned contracts and grant-funded research, and conduct capacity building work with civil society organisations. 

As the ideal candidate you have a strong background in consulting and social science research, focused on civil society, and you have a PhD in a relevant discipline.

You have proven expertise in designing, leading, analysing and reporting on rigorous short and long-term contracts and research studies in MEIA. You can demonstrate experience in using a range of quantitative and qualitative methods in work with civil society organisations, including designing appropriate methods frameworks. You work well and can maintain focus under time and resource constraints. You work well in collaboration with team colleagues.
