Term: Permanent
Salary: £24,500

An exciting opportunity has opened up for the role of Research and Programme Coordinator at INTRAC. The Research and Programme Coordinator has a dual function in supporting INTRAC’s mission to deliver on large civil society support programmes and to ensure rigour in the production and use of evidence in policy and practice.

One aspect of your role will be to support the Director of Research, Learning and Communications in developing and delivering new research activities, relationships and products. The second aspect will be to work with the Consultancies team to support the efficient delivery of programmes, and to provide research and monitoring support to projects with clients and partners.

Initially you will work on The Development Alternative, a new programme exploring new ways of doing development that are truly led by young people and communities. Around half your time will be dedicated to helping to deliver INTRAC’s activities within The Development Alternative.

This requires a versatile and dynamic individual, wanting to use their skills to strengthen civil society around the world. You will have experience in using a range of research skills (quantitative and qualitative) and experience in project administration and coordination. You will be able to manage the dual nature of this role, handling multiple tasks effectively and efficiently.
