The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded at the request of Albert Einstein, IRC offers life-saving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in more than 40 countries and in 22 US cities, IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted by conflict or disaster. IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The Syria crisis is often described as the worst humanitarian catastrophe since the end of the Cold War. Inside Syria, 7.6 million people are internally displaced and 12.2 million are in need of humanitarian assistance, with 4.8 million in hard-to-reach areas. There are 4 million Syrian refugees in neighboring countries. This is no short-term humanitarian episode. The devastating human consequences to huge numbers of people will endure for decades. The destruction of relationships, communities, livelihoods, homes and infrastructure will take years to repair.
IRC is offering a robust humanitarian response to the Syria crisis. With an annual budget in excess of $140 million and a rapidly expanding portfolio, supported by more than 3,000 staff and workers in the region, IRC is undertaking programs in Syria and the neighboring countries of Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan in the fields of health, child protection, education, women’s protection and empowerment, NFI and food distribution, cash assistance, water and sanitation, and livelihood programming. Our work in these challenging settings gives rise to some of the most pressing issues facing contemporary humanitarian action, including questions of access, security, funding and coordination.
The Partner M&E Manager will work closely with organizations implementing in Syria under IRC partnership sub-awards, to support those organizations to establish and maintain monitoring and evaluation systems and capacities appropriate for their programming, and to ensure their monitoring and evaluation practices are consistent with IRC’s internal and donor informational, accountability and compliance requirements. The post-holder will provide technical assistance to partners’ own M&E processes and procedures, as well as the end results of data generation, quality, analysis and reporting. In doing so, the Partner M&E Manager will deliver the M&E technical components of IRC’s wider capacity strengthening support to partners, and measure the impact of this support. S/he will be a member of the MEAL Unit, while working very closely with the Partnerships Unit to ensure the efforts are an integral part of IRC’s sub-award partnership management system.

• Determine the best ways to measure partners’ M&E performance, and track their performance progress
