Job Description

In this role, you will be an integral part of the Program Support and Knowledge Management team at RTV.

You will take the lead in coordinating and reporting on a vital restricted funding grant from Global Affairs Canada and ensure project success and timely reporting by collaborating with partners and stakeholders – keeping a keen eye on project designs as well as supporting the project teams in Uganda. You will also play a pivotal role in our knowledge management efforts to support our program staff, helping to document program knowledge and turn it into valuable resources for multiple stakeholders across the organization.

You are exceptional at understanding program data (outputs and outcomes) on the one hand, and on the other, you can paint a picture with that data to develop complex funder reports, proposals, and knowledge resources. You love Logic Models and Performance Measurement Frameworks, and complex reporting frameworks and are comfortable coordinating projects in a multi-stakeholder, fast-paced environment with the highest attention to detail. You are a skilled communicator, organizer, and team player with a commitment to international development. You are also tech-savvy to be able to help us organize growing program knowledge digitally in accessible and effective ways.
