About the Project:
The Australian Humanitarian Partnership is a humanitarian and disaster management partnership between the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and six leading Australian humanitarian NGOs. The AHP Support Unit (AHPSU) was established at the outset of the partnership. It is funded by DFAT and managed by Alinea International.
As part of Australia’s broader humanitarian response to the Ukraine conflict, AUD 10 million worth of assistance is being delivered through the AHP. The response is being led by two AHP partners in consortium with other international and local NGOs. The program will undertake a Real Time Evaluation (RTE) due to the rapidly changing situation on the ground and the ability to learn in real-time and influence programming as it is happening, while promoting coordination and communication between the partner agencies in Ukraine and surrounding countries.
Managed by the AHPSU, the primary purpose of this evaluation is to learn from the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) response and to identify improvements for the AHP program. The evaluation will examine the relevance, effectiveness, sustainability, coverage, and coordination primarily of DFAT-funded MHPSS response activities. The evaluation will also consider how the activities of each consortium sit within the broader landscape of other donor-funded MHPSS-related activities.
Academic Qualifications and Experience:
The RTE team is expected to consist of a team leader and a team member both with relevant experience in emergency response and evaluations. Remote technical support and oversight is acceptable given the current challenges in relation to travel, access etc. Fluency in English is required.
- Team Lead: on the ground, providing overarching team lead and technical support to ensure quality control across the RTE.
- Team member: on the ground to lead on the data collection and analysis of AHP partners MHPSS activities and coordination with local partners.
- At least one team member with experience in MHPSS
- At least one team member with experience and language skills in Ukraine and / or surrounding countries
- At least one team member with RTE experience
