job description

The ideal person for this position will conduct a nationwide context analysis on Secure Livelihoods in Tanzania. The researcher will conduct a (quantitative) desk research as well as consulting and conducting informative interviews with key stakeholders. This consultation will help draw learnings and good practices for future programming, supported by the identification of potential new partners. This analysis will help us to make the critical decisions as to where the most vulnerable are, their needs and therefore our choice for the geographical focus in our programming. The findings from this assessment will help inform VSO Tanzania country strategy on Secure Livelihoods and will reflect VSO’s people first strategy.

About VSO

VSO is the world's leading development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty. We are unique in the way we bring people together to share their skills and experience, generate insights and ideas and, most of all, take action against poverty and exclusion. It's a highly effective approach that works, and today is helping millions of people in some of the world's poorest communities lift themselves out of poverty.

Allowance and accommodation All volunteers have an allowance paid in local currency. The allowance meets reasonable living expenses in country, but will not be enough to send money home. VSO works with some of the poorest communities in the world which means accommodation varies and will be basic.
