Consultant – MEAL

Organization: Welthungerhilfe
Closing date: 28 Jun 2021

In each of Welthungerhilfe’s country office there is a position called "MEAL Expert / MEAL Coordinator". The main tasks of the MEAL Experts include the quality assurance of the MEAL activities in the projects and programmes as well as the management of the local MEAL systems. The MEAL experts / MEAL coordinaters work closely with relevant staff at country level (Head of Programmes, Country Director, Project Manager and MEAL officer at project level, just to name a few).

One of the key tasks of the consultancy is the virtual facilitation (including preparation and documentation) of several MEAL self-assessment with key staff from a respective Country programme, to facilitate virtual MEAL Self-Assessments with key staff from Country Programme level, including management level. With MEAL Self-Assessment the current state and functional performance of MEAL in a specific Country Programme (or project / programme) gets assessed in order to come up with a concise and manageable medium-term (e.g. six- to eight-month) action plan to establish or strengthen the MEAL system. The MEAL Self-Assessment is a process that follows standard process steps. A workshop is a central step where the strengths and weaknesses of the existing MEAL system are systematically analysed.

The consultant closely cooperates with the respective focal person for that country programme in the MEAL team Bonn (Country Support) and the MEAL Expert County Office. The consultant can work remotely from home. As soon as the Corona situation allows, a meeting of the team in Bonn is possible.
