We are a values-based not-for-profit with a mission to strengthen civil society organisations (CSOs), providing consultancy, training and research to support CSOs around the world to do what they do, better. We are at an exciting juncture as we look to develop our services in line with movements to decolonise, shift power and localise, building on our highly respected consultancy, training and learning support. We carry out diverse consultancies in monitoring evaluation and learning (MEL), organisational development, capacity strengthening, organisational change and accompaniment processes.

As Consultant – Projects and Research you will play a central role in the delivery of INTRAC’s consultancy services. You will coordinate short and long term projects, involving team members and partners from around the world, ensuring effective delivery and rigour in the production and use of evidence and learning. You will have experience as part of project teams involving MEL, research, and/or individual and organisational learning and development. You will have an eye for detail, experience generating and analysing evidence, experience coordinating complex projects, and will be comfortable coordinating a number of tasks with competing deadlines at the same time.  You will be versatile and dynamic, want to use your skills to support civil society resilience, and have an interest in current debates and movements to shift power and practice.

In return we offer you a competitive salary and benefits package, and a chance to work with a respected, values-based organisation contributing to more resilient civil society and social change. The role can be full time or part time (0.8 FTE). We work remotely, with occasional team together days in the UK and international travel required. Our long-term aspiration is to have staff members located across the globe, however, currently we can only directly employ people based in the UK, with a right to work in the UK.  If you are based somewhere outside the UK and are interested in the role you would need to find a host organisation or join us on secondment.  We would be happy to have a conversation with you to explore these possibilities.

We are actively encouraging racialised minorities, people with disabilities, returning parents or carers who are re-entering work after a career break, people with caring responsibilities, people from low socioeconomic backgrounds, to apply. This is because these groups are under-represented within our teams, especially at senior level, and we recognise and value the contributions members of these groups make to strong, creative and high performing teams. Having lived experience of Africa, Asia or the Middle East would be an advantage.
