Red Cross is seeking an Evaluator for the 2-year Here to Contribute project, which works with new migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and Australian communities to strengthen social cohesion.

  2. Improvement: To identify insights to strengthen support for future project implementation; and
  3. Accountability: To complement monitoring data to meet reporting requirements.

About you

You will have:

  • 5 or more years demonstrated experience in conducting evaluations using participatory approaches and appreciative inquiry approaches such as Most Significant Change;
  • Skills using mixed media in data collection, including visual tools (may include photography, Smartphone videography, infographics);
  • Ability to develop an engaging, well-presented report, potentially using images and / or presentation software, in place of a longer document;
  • Demonstrated skills in engaging with vulnerable groups, and responding to gender and cultural diversity;
  • Commitment to strong ethical principles and practice;
  • Understanding of factors affecting the operation of Not for Profit Organisations; and

The Ian Potter Foundation is a major Australian philanthropic foundation that supports and promotes excellence and innovation.

We use TIPFEP to recommend evaluators to our grantees with the objective of producing high-quality evaluation reports that will lead to projects leveraging ongoing funding (from government, social enterprise or other foundations).
