The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the Economic Evaluation AdvisorinLondon or any existing Save the Children International office location.

This role will provide support to country offices and thematic teams by leading cost-efficiency and cost-effectiveness analyses, conducting trainings to regional and country office teams, and developing VfM frameworks.

You will be expected to help foster a culture within Save the Children of constantly seeking to understand and improve VfM in our work, through the application of relevant and proportionate methods and consideration of economic factors in policy and advocacy. You will work with a range of stakeholders in Save the Children offices and across multiple programmes and countries.
