The Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) is a bold public-private partnership that seeks to catalyze and coordinate a coherent global strategy to end modern slavery. Our mission is to end modern slavery by making it economically unprofitable.
GFEMS will make grants across sectors and geographies with a focus on three core funding themes: rule of law, business engagement, and sustaining freedom. The Fund’s strategy also includes the development of public-private investments across key industries and innovative approaches to evaluating what works in reducing the prevalence of modern slavery. We invite you to read more about the fund’s strategy and early investment priorities at www.gfems.org.
GFEMS’ approach to research is highly action-oriented and data-driven. The Fund’s research efforts will identify what works (and doesn’t) to sustainably reduce the prevalence of slavery. These lessons will be shared with the field but also applied internally to inform bigger bets towards large-scale prevalence reduction in specific industries / geographies.
A major barrier to attracting the scale and type of investment needed to fight slavery is the lack of actionable and insightful prevalence data. Specifically, the Fund needs to be able to measure prevalence of slavery at a granular enough level (i.e. the total number of people in a form of slavery in a given industry and/or geography) to influence decision making, and to monitor and evaluate the progress of its programs.
As MEL Manager, you will be at the heart of our learning on what works and doesn’t work. You will drive the insights we use to make future investments and help us to course-correct programs based on that learning. You will need to be able to quickly assess industry-level and programmatic-level theories of change, develop clear indicators, oversee a system for data collection and monitoring, and deliver clear insights and implications of the research. You will need to work closely with our grantees to help them refine their theories of change, prioritise indicators, and translate data into actionable insights. You will also need to manage local evaluation partners who will conduct independent evaluations at the program and industry level.
You will be responsible for a core component of successful implementation of the Fund’s strategy to understand “PROI” -- Prevalence-reduction & Return-on-Investment -- which encompasses 3 key questions:
