The Data & Evaluation Officer will be responsible for supporting the implementation of local data collection processes and management and the data system, with support from the M&E Coordinator. This includes supporting staff in achieving high quality data collection and undertaking regular data quality checks, with staff and within the data system. It will also involve supporting staff and management with transitioning to a new data system, over the next six months. This position will be responsible for the monitoring and evaluation data system for our operations in both Central Australia and the Top End.
The focus of our monitoring and evaluation is to evidence the efficacy of the Children’s Ground Approach and system. Key to this is the data collected as part of our longitudinal evaluation of impact.
Children’s Ground is committed to community led practice that privileges First Nations culture. All First Nations and Western staff have data collection roles and responsibilities. Working with all staff, this role will support the continued culture of locally relevant and robust monitoring, evaluation, research and development.
You will have demonstrated experience in high-quality data entry and implementation of data collection, entry and analysis quality assurance processes. You will also have a solid understanding and commitment to safe and secure data management practices. An understanding of monitoring, evaluation and research approaches will help you be successful in this role, as well as your community experience, preferably with First Nations communities.
