Senior Indicators Specialist

The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the Senior Indicators Specialist in the UK (London or Remote) or any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office worldwide. 

Role Purpose:

Save the Children’s programs gather evidence of our results in multiple systems and processes, using many different indicators. Across our program portfolio today we are not able to effectively analyze our results above the program level. We have prioritized building more consistency in how we measure and capture results of our programs. We are in progress of implementing new global tools to standardize how we capture and store data, including digital data collection (Kobo and CommCare) and managing program logframes data (PRIME). We will complement these new tools with improved business processes that allow us to measure results in a more consistent way when possible, so the data is usable to make decisions at scale.

We have developed a list of prioritised global indicators. The role of the Indicators Specialist will be to manage the governance of this list, advocate for changes where required, and advise on its use. The role is essential to ensuring the Global Indicators are suitable for use across Save the Children, and will lead engagement with stakeholders (Technical Leadership Groups, Technical Working Groups, and Research & Evidence Advisors) to evolve and improve the Global Indicators list. In addition, the role will drive and oversee specific improvements to the Global Indicators, including advocating for changes based on quality criteria and country office user feedback. The role will also manage execution of changes, including managing translations, uploads to SCI IT systems, completion of relevant governance processes, and (where required) overseeing the work of external consultants to develop content for the Global Indicators list. Last, the role is essential to driving uptake of Global Indicators, and will lead the analysis and communication of use data for Global Indicators with senior leaders, including identifying and advocating for potential changes to the Global Indicators where required based on actual usage.

This role can be based in the UK (London or Remote) or any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office location on approval, provided the successful candidate has proof of eligibility to work from the preferred location for the duration of the contract.
