Long Term Employee - Scope of Work

Position Title: M&E and Reporting Officer

Reporting: M&E and Reporting Specialist

Period of Performance: LTTA

Location: Amman-Jordan

Background:

The London Conference held on February 4, 2016 brought together various governments to adopt a new Compact between the Government of Jordan and the international community. The Compact summarizes a number of commitments made by the GoJ and the international community. As a result of the conference, international donors committed to support Jordan’s Response Plan, in addition to ensuring sufficient mobilization of grants to the education sector. Additionally, the Jordan Compact requires extensive coordination and accountability from the GoJ to deliver on key indicators in return for substantial financial support and market access.

These requirements will place a considerable workload on Jordan’s Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MoPIC). Therefore a Project Management Unit (PMU) was established to provide MoPIC with the needed capacity to implement the Compact. Specifically, the PMU will lead activities required to implement the key reforms noted in the Jordan Compact, carry out its responsibilities toward the international community, and assist MoPIC to manage a World Bank Program-for-Results (PforR) to create economic opportunities for Jordanians and Syrian refugees.

In October 2017, H.E. Minister of MoPIC requested that the PMU take a leading role in the design process of a Five Year Growth Matrix to boost growth and generate jobs in Jordan. The GoJ and MoPIC recognize the Five Year Growth Matrix as the second phase of the Jordan Compact, as the country transitions from resilience to growth. The PMU has also been mandated to coordinate the implementation of the Matrix, as part of an official governance structure to be agreed on before launching the Matrix.

To this end, the PMU aims to recruit a Communications and M&E Officer.

S/he will work closely with the M&E and Reporting Specialist on all associated tasks.
