Act for Peace,Performance Effectiveness Coordinator Jobs in Australia

Closing date: 24 Aug 2016
Act for Peace’s Performance Effectiveness Coordinator (PEC) plays a vital role in ensuring effective, quality, and accountable services to our stakeholders. Act for Peace is a partner-focused agency, and as
such, the PEC will be required to strengthen and manage Act for Peace’s internal quality, accountability and effectiveness (QAE) systems, as well as support the work of program staff to strengthen the QAE systems of partners.
The PEC position is a new role within Act for Peace that is designed to consolidate and build on work previously delegated to members of the Programs and Policy Department (PPT) within which the role sits. Although the primary purpose of this role is confirmed, we anticipate working with an industry professional to design a specific work-plan to achieve the required results.
The PEC role focuses on three core aims:
  1. To ensure the effective development and implementation of Act for Peace’s Agency Development and Effectiveness Work Plan, which is the agency’s primary tool for planning and implementing activities designed to satisfy our quality, accountability and effectiveness obligations (including AfP policies, DFAT Accreditation, ACFID Code of Conduct, ACT Alliance policies, and various industry and donor standards) and staff are supported to implement the plan (20% ft hrs).
  2. To ensure staff in the Programs and Policy Department are enabled to implement our Effectiveness Plan, which is designed to increase staff members’ capacity to ensure program effectiveness through application of relevant policy, monitoring, evaluation and learning initiatives, and quality, compliance and accountability requirements. There will be a strong focus in this area on monitoring and evaluation. In addition to working with staff, the PEC may also work directly with individual partner agencies on capacity building and or monitoring and evaluation initiatives (70% ft hrs)
  3. To ensure the Programs and Policy Department maintains a relevant information management system which enables collection, analysis and reporting of key data for stakeholders, including staff, our Board, partners, donors, and consortium members. The PEC will line-manager our Performance Effectiveness Officer in this role (10% ft hrs).
Members of the Program and Policy Department carry focal point roles for cross cutting policies in our work. In line with this approach, we are aiming to recruit a person to this role who will also serve as AfP’s Child Protection Focal Point. Previous experience in the development and implementation of child safeguarding or child protection policies within humanitarian and development settings is highly desirable.
As part of a dedicated team of program, policy and advocacy staff, the PEC will also contribute to the wider strategic and operational development of the agency.
