  • Prepare monthly project management reports (internal) and progress reports (external);  
  • Develop tailored communications materials to highlight the project’s progress, (i.e., briefing notes, blog posts, social media posts, etc.); 
  • Ensure coherent flows of information so that all relevant stakeholders are updated regularly, with the most relevant materials for their role and participation level;   
  • In countries with seconded Delivery Advisors, act as the primary interface with each Delivery Advisor, supporting these roles to develop and detail country scaling action plans (and track progress against them);

  Deliverables:   

  1. Consistently updated global project delivery tracker  
  2. Monthly project management reports / progress reports  
  3. Draft country support and implementation plan / SOWs, in collaboration with Delivery Advisors and/or other country-level stakeholders, in at least 3-4 countries

  • Ensure wide public accessibility of key products, including but not limited to Global Coordination Group (GCG) minutes and activities, as well as the binder of in-country resources;  
  • Create a system to capture, deepen and document lessons identified through the Global Coordination Group and Project Implementation Caucus;  
  • Lead the evaluation of the project’s support services, documenting user experiences through exit interviews and other methods to provide recommendations on future adjustments;  
  • Document progress, challenges, and lessons learned as countries develop scaling action plans, to fold into knowledge management work;  

  Deliverables:   

  1. Accessible and user-friendly binder of resources for in-country partners  
  2. Accessible knowledge projects (e.g. GCG minutes)  
  3. Framework to capture GCG/PIC lessons learned, leading to 3 country case studies and an evaluation of available support services for scale  

 Quality Assurance: Ensure quality delivery within and across key project workstreams, such that deliverables and services meet and exceed stakeholder expectations.   

To this end, the Coordinator will:  

  • Co-develop a cross-organization ways of working (‘call-down mechanism’) to facilitate expert service delivery, leveraging the strengths of existing models and assessing/anticipating potential administrative barriers to timely deployment  
  • Prepare, standardize and adapt onboarding and offboarding materials for key support roles (i.e., Delivery Advisors and Technical Experts)  
  • Provide consistent backstopping for these support roles - especially those in French-speaking contexts - during their secondments or deployments, ensuring that needs or challenges identified are appropriately addressed by the project or other relevant groups  
  • Provide surge support to the global technical assistance support mechanism, as needed and relevant over project implementation  
  • Oversee the development of meeting agendas for the Global Coordination Group and Project Implementation Caucus, ensuring that minutes with clear action points are circulated    

Deliverables:

  2. Accessible, streamlined onboarding/offboarding materials for support roles  
  3. Weekly monitoring calls with support roles during deployments  
  4. Development and dissemination of meeting agendas and minutes (including action points) for at least 5 GCG and 5 PIC meetings  

Education: a Master’s/post-graduate degree in Public Health, Nutrition or equivalent.
