Manager, Monitoring & Evaluation, Clean Cooking Alliance

Employment Opportunity - Remote - Full Time

Position Overview

The Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) works with a global network of partners to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to the three billion people who live each day without it. Established in 2010, CCA is driving consumer demand, mobilizing investment to build a pipeline of scalable businesses, and fostering an enabling environment that allows the sector to thrive. Clean cooking transforms lives by improving health, protecting the climate and environment, empowering women, and helping consumers save time and money.

This includes providing support for CCA’s Standard Indicators (SI) and Learning Agenda and contributing to set up M&E systems for the initiatives emanating from CCA’s Clean Cooking Systems Strategy (CCSS). The Manager will support CCA’s Evidence & Impact (E&I) team to ensure that all M&E responsibilities are implemented efficiently, on time, and in line with the values of CCA.

The Manager reports to the Senior Manager, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL). The Manager will supervise the work of the M&E Officer (based in Haiti), and work closely with the Haiti project team and other CCA team members to ensure strong linkages between M&E and CCA programming.

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
