IREX hiring Technical Adviser for the Programme to End Modern Slavery


Washington, D.C., United States of America, 30 March 2017

About IREX:

IREX is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to building a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world by empowering youth, cultivating leaders, strengthening institutions, and extending access to quality education and information. Founded in 1968, IREX has an annual portfolio of over $80 million, offices in 20 countries, and a global staff of 400. We work in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Summary of Position:

IREX seeks Technical Adviser candidates for an anticipated four-year J/TIP-funded programme to advance transformational programmes and projects that seek to achieve a measurable and substantial reduction of the prevalence of modern slavery globally. This programme will (i) support the "3P" paradigm of prosecuting traffickers, protecting trafficking victims, and preventing trafficking in persons; (ii) engage relevant stakeholders, including the private sector, as partners in anti-trafficking efforts; and (iii) address the demand for commercial sex and forced labor, including in the context of global supply chains. The Technical Adviser will be responsible for providing strategic and technical leadership to the programme and overseeing monitoring, evaluation, and reporting on programme activities.

This position is contingent on funding.

Summary of Responsibilities:

  • Support the development of a scientifically sound, representative survey methodology for measuring prevalence with reference to existing research and experience;

  • Apply the methodology consistently to determine the baseline prevalence in target populations and outcomes in order to periodically assess progress in reducing prevalence;

  • Implement a system for measuring progress against baseline data that is rigorously designed based on international corporate and nongovernmental best practices;

  • Establish a rigorous, evidence-based process by which to identify and prioritize target populations and programmeming objectives in specific countries and jurisdictions;

  • Develop specific and detailed criteria for the monitoring and evaluation of supported projects;

  • Ensure that each supported project is regularly and rigorously monitored and evaluated, on a not less than biennial basis, by an independent monitoring and evaluation entity, against the specific and detailed criteria established, and that the progress of the project towards its stated goals is measured by such entity against baseline data;

  • Establish, and revise on a not less than annual basis, specific and detailed criteria for the suspension and termination, as appropriate, of sub-awards supported by the recipient that regularly or consistently fail to meet the criteria required;

  • Develop systems and processes for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data in order to contribute new knowledge, lessons learned, and best practices to combat modern slavery.

Period of Performance: Four Years
