Comprising over 80 aid agencies globally, it leverages collective knowledge and resources to respond when disaster strikes, making a tangible impact on the lives of vulnerable children.

  • Role Summary:
    • Support MEAL activities for anticipation, early action, and risk financing initiatives.
    • Focus on the impact of the Start Network's new finance mechanism, Start Ready.
    • Work closely with the CARF MEAL Advisor and Learning and Research Advisor.

We are looking for a Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Evaluation (MEAL) Officer to join the Start Network within our Humanitarian Department. This role will support the ongoing MEAL activities of our anticipation, early action and risk financing initiatives, with a particular focus on MEAL requirements for the donor ECHO.

Save the Children UK believes every child deserves a future. We work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave.

Start Network is an independent charity made up of more than 80 aid agency members across five continents. Our aim is to deliver more effective emergency aid, harnessing the power and knowledge of the network to make faster and better decisions to help people affected by crises.

The Start Funds MEAL Officer will work with colleagues within both SCUK and Start Network. The position sits within Save the Children UK as a Grant Custodian on behalf of the Start Network supported by a Grant Custodian Agreement (GCA) which describes the roles and commitments of each entity.

In this role, you will support the ongoing MEAL activities of anticipation, early action and risk financing initiatives, with a larger focus on the impact of Start Network's newest finance mechanism, Start Ready. This role will particularly focus on MEAL requirements and activities funded by European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operation (ECHO) and will support and work closely with CARF MEAL Advisor and the Learning and Research Advisor (within the Evidence and Learning Team).

To be successful, it is important that you have previous experience delivering MEAL in national and/or international contexts for humanitarian or development programmes, experience of reporting on donor or funders grants (ideally ECHO Grants) in an international organisation, excellent data analysis skills, and experience of using Salesforce or other customer relationship management (CRM) system.

Working for a charity provides one of the best benefits there is – a sense of purpose and reward for helping others. However, we understand the importance of giving back to our employees to ensure a happy and healthy working environment and work/life balance. We focus on flexibility, inclusion, collaboration, health and wellbeing both in and outside of work. We provide a wide range of benefits which will reward your hard work, motivate you, and inspire you to work to improve the lives of children every day.
