Results Measurement Specialist in Kenya , Kenya

JOB DESCRIPTION Results Measurement Specialist

Reporting to: Head of Measurement and Results Management (MRM)

Background
Financial Sector Deepening Africa (FSDA) is a non-profit company, funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) which aims to increase prosperity, create jobs and reduce poverty by bringing about a transformation in financial markets in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and in the economies they serve. It provides technical know-how and capital to champions of change whose ideas, influence and actions will make finance more useful to Africans businesses and households. It acts as a “market catalyst”, adopting the “making markets work for the poor (M4P) approach”.

Through access to finance initiatives, it seeks to build financial inclusion. Through capital market development it looks to promote economic growth and increase investment. As a regional programme, it seeks to encourage collaboration, knowledge transfer and market-building activities both within and across borders, and especially in fragile and conflicted-affected states (FCAS). Where there are opportunities to drive financial market transformation more quickly and intensively through capital investment, FSDA will deploy equity, loans or guarantees as the situation requires.

FSDA is located in Nairobi, Kenya. It is part of a network of country-based FSDs operating in Africa (the “FSD Network” – Enterprise Partners (EP) in Ethiopia, FSDK in Kenya, FSDMoc in Mozambique, EFInA in Nigeria, Access to Finance (AFR) in Rwanda, FinMark trust (FMT) in South Africa, FSDT in Tanzania and FSDU in Uganda). It also partners with other national, regional and international organisations working on financial sector development initiatives in SSA.

Driven by its strategic framework (2017-21) FSDA’s work can be said to focus on five main areas:
• Financial Institutions – supporting digital finance, product development and change management processes within and for financial institutions to improve capacity and performance;
• Capital Markets – supporting regulators and building diverse, liquid and efficient financial markets that can more effectively mobilise and allocate capital to businesses and projects that in turn drive inclusive economic growth;
• Inclusive Finance – supporting market-building financial inclusion programmes in a number of priority sectors, including credit, savings groups, remittances, insurance, policy and housing finance;
• Regional Strategies – convening, capacity building and providing operational support to the FSD Network, as well as building and coordinating FSDA’s emerging fragile and conflicted-affected state (FCAS) strategy.

These are supported by the closely inter-linked cross-cutting pillars of Leadership and Development, Digital Finance, Measurement and Results Management, and Communications.

The Role
FSDA now seeks to recruit a motivated and ambitious individual to support the Monitoring and Results Management team which, in close collaboration with other staff, aims for effective measurement, demonstration of performance, and adaptive management of FSDA’s fast-expanding programme.

Specific objectives and activities will include, but will not be limited to:
• Support FSDA’s project due diligence initiatives. This task will involve assessing potential Implementing Partners data management and results measurement capacity, and defining the technical support that FSDA may need to provide to enhance the effectiveness with which project performance is measured. The task will also involve carrying out baseline studies and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) risk assessments – robustness of which will vary from project to project.
• Participate in the design and implementation of an outcome monitoring strategy. FSDA is increasingly seeking to routinely monitor, rather than just periodically evaluate the financial market system changes resulting from the interventions it is supporting/has supported. The Results Measurement Specialist in close consultation with the Head of MRM, will design an innovative outcome monitoring strategy and participate in its implementation. This task will sometimes entail managing externally-contracted evaluation experts, ensuring timely delivery of quality evaluation initiatives.
• Support Value for Money (VfM) and ESG risk monitoring initiatives. VfM and ESG risk management are integral components of FSDA’s programming. The MRM unit’s mandate includes measuring the organization’s performance on these, and there are guidelines in place to facilitate the same. The Results Measurement Specialist will contribute to the refinement and enhanced implementation of these guidelines.
• Work with partners to establish and implement MRM plans. To carry out its work, FSDA engages with many diverse partners. These include training institutions, development organizations, financial service providers and financial sector regulators. There is shared responsibility between FSDA and its partners in measurement of results. The Results Measurement Specialist, in close consultation with relevant FSDA staff, will provide technical support to partners in the development of practical MRM plans that are aligned to FSDA’s procedures. Such plans should facilitate effective and timely reporting, learning, and adaptive management at partner level.
• Facilitate both internal and external learning. Knowledge generated by FSDA’s results measurement initiatives should inform continuous improvements in the design and delivery of financial sector development initiatives. In this regard, the Results Measurement Specialist will actively participate in the dissemination of such knowledge, and support utilisation of the same by FSDA, its implementing partners, and other financial sector development actors.
• Contribute to the review and refinement of FSDA’s MRM approach. FSDA’s MRM approach must be sufficiently versatile to respond to the information needs of its complex financial sector development work. The Results Measurement Specialist will participate in reviewing FSDA’s results measurement approach and contribute to its refinement. Therefore, the Results Measurement Specialist’s job description will continue to evolve to meet emerging needs.

The Results Measurement Specialist will adhere to M4P principles in implementing tasks and will work to promote FSDA’s interests across SSA, enhancing the organisation’s reputation in doing so and demonstrating a strong commitment to making its strategic objectives a reality.

The role presents an exciting opportunity for an individual to contribute to the early stages of an organisation that is expected to deliver significant impact over the coming years and who is keen to learn, create new ideas and test new ways of working. It offers the opportunity to be part of and engage actively with a dynamic FSD Network and with DFID and other development partners that FSDA collaborates closely with.
Applicants should have a strong strategic focus, be results driven, and committed to high standards of performance. They must be comfortable with working flexibly and taking real responsibility for their decisions.

Location: The role is based in Nairobi, Kenya, with substantial travel within the sub-Saharan Africa region.

Essential professional qualifications
1. Master’s degree in Economics, Development Studies, Operations Research, or other relevant field
2. Professional training in Impact Evaluation, Impact Mapping, and/or Impact Harvesting from a recognised institution
3. At least four years’ experience in designing and implementing rigorous quasi-experimental studies in complex development programmes, preferably those with a financial sector development mandate
