The Opportunity to Make a Difference:

Australian NGO Cooperation Partnership (ANCP) is currently the largest grant for World Vision Australia (WVA), with 35 ANCP projects and an annual budget of $37 million.

The Impact Advisor role will serve multiple audiences but will have a strong focus on the external promotion of programme and sector learning. This includes proactive engagement with DFAT and the broader development sector on policy and practice issues with evidence and learning gained from WVA’s ANCP Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) processes.

Leadership to strengthen:

  1. Our gender and disability inclusive M&E framework for ANCP including promotion of learning across the portfolio and with other ANCP agencies
  2. Utilisation of M&E in line with accountability principles including communication of project impact to support DFAT’s ANCP Program Logic.
  3. Quality of M&E evidence, assisting WVA ANCP Grant Managers to incorporate and track meaningful measures of results, under a gender and inclusion-sensitive framework that can be aggregated to WVA ANCP program level and report into DFAT DME frameworks.

The role will take the lead on analysis of reporting objectives and results against them, helping internal and external stakeholders to understand the scope and impact of the complex ANCP portfolio.

The ANCP Impact Advisor will shift the focus of project-level DME from compliance to utilisation, from Outputs to Outcomes, and move to building WVA’s position among ANCP NGOs to address DFAT feedback.
