The newly created position of MEAL Manager will be accountable for developing and leading on the monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning framework for the Better Cotton Growth and Innovation Foundation.

The Better Cotton Growth and Innovation Foundation (GIF) is an internal Fund set up to support Better Cotton in achieving its goals; it funds projects which promote sustainable farming practices that benefit farmers, farm workers and the farming environment.

Working closely with Better Cotton´s existing MEL Team, the MEAL Manager will be in the exciting position to build a MEAL framework for the Fund from scratch. This position will also be responsible for developing an approach to evaluate the impact of the project portfolio overall to ensure funding is used to the best possible effect.

The role will involve a high level of engagement with, and capacity building of, in-country partner/grantee organisations. This engagement will start at application stage, supporting organisations to develop their MEAL frameworks all the way to involving them in learning from end-of-term reviews.

This is a unique role for an experienced MEAL professional. Positioned between the Foundation and the MEL team, this role will be of standalone nature and will require solid experience in leading MEAL workstreams. We are looking for someone who can set up a robust system while also introducing new and innovative approaches. With ample experience based in country, ideally in a rural and/or agricultural programme setting, the ideal candidate will be comfortable working across different teams and possess the cultural sensitivity to work with organisations in a variety of countries.
