Where to Apply

If you are a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) professional, who aspires for their work to contribute to greater societal good, they can offer you the chance to passionately shape and drive social and environmental changes at scale working within Shell Foundation (SF). SF is a UK-registered charity that creates and scales social enterprises to tackle global development challenges affecting people in low-income communities living on $2 to $10 day. This role is crucial to SF success guiding key management decisions.

Where you fit in
Based in London, you’ll be joining Shell Foundation (SF), an independent UK charity, established in 2000 with a positive mission to apply business thinking to major social and environmental issues linked to the energy sector. By working with strategic partners, SF acts like an investor, providing business support and sharing risk, alongside funding, to create valuable social impact and financial sustainability.
Effective M&E is a core operating principle for SF and is essential in order to ultimately provide the evidence required for SF to be accountable to its Board and funders, but also very importantly, generate learning for SF, its funding partners and the wider community.
Sitting in their market development team, you will be the sole M&E professional in Shell Foundation, meaning this is your area! They are looking for someone to relish that opportunity and provide expert guidance and advisory across their teams.

What’s the role?
The overall purpose of this role is to ensure SF captures enough evidence from its work to enable accurate understanding of their impact, and to allow SF to make informed decisions which will maximise the contribution towards their charitable objectives.
You will develop and execute the M&E strategy across SF to ensure this is achieved and to ensure their data is recorded, managed and preserved in a safe and accessible way. Creativity is key, they anticipate a range of methods and research studies will be required. Some other key responsibilities include:
• Lead the design and upgrading of SF’s M&E systems to match its growing portfolio of partners.
• Educate SF and beyond to their partners on M&E best practice and methodologies championing a culture of learning.
• Through consultation, develop monitoring plans to ensure that rigor is achieved without undue burden on SF and their partners.
• Partner with SF staff and partners to provide feedback on performance based on findings.
• Drive best in class evaluation, including impact reports and disseminating research.

Nurturing key relationships will be a vital part of your work. You’ll use your strong communication skills to ensure you present research and insights in ways that a range of internal and external stakeholders will find easy to understand and action, from enterprises and social investors, to governments and NGOs.
