About The/Nudge:

The/Nudge is an action institute working towards a poverty-free India, within our lifetime. We partner with governments, markets, and civil society to build resilient livelihoods for all. We are a collective of some of India’s best leaders and entrepreneurs from across the industry, academia, government, and development sectors, and our work is organized across three impact streams:

  • Centre for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (CSDE): enables underprivileged youth to lead flourishing lives

  • Centre for Rural Development (CRD): enables rural families to come out of extreme poverty

  • Centre for Social Innovation (CSI): helps build a thriving livelihoods ecosystem

At The/Nudge you will:

● Collaborate with the leaders across the 3 centres at The/Nudge to create and validate their Monitoring and Evaluation strategy and Theory of Change. Lead the design of a common impact assessment framework to accommodate multiple programs.

● Define the monitoring and evaluation framework for each program including metrics and what is driving/hindering data collection.

● Drive evaluation (including third party and multi-player evaluation). The focus will be deep understanding of the outcomes to generate insights to help refine/enhance the work on ground. The team will involve external stakeholders to make this most effective.

● Create access to external data sets and impact information (both government and non-government) and integrate them with our data and knowledge to provide learning for our work and insights to the broader field.

● Support the wider organization in thinking through and integrating cross-cutting areas like gender, empowerment, SDGs, etc.

● Be a senior member of a team that is seen as a thought leader in the “Impact evaluation” space and influences it (from policy to practice) through a deep understanding of the practitioners’ perspective rather than an academic point of view.

● Have a deep understanding of the evaluation space and its evolution over time - from methodologies used and the practical aspects of executing them in the Indian context, to more importantly understanding what to measure to understand impact and what is driving/impeding it.

● Have strong relationships with key stakeholders including other operating organizations, funders, M&E organizations and organizations doing field data collection (traditional and new) that are interested/working in the evaluation and impact measurement space.

● Lead and mentor a team. Create Learning and Development spaces of data intersections for Impact team and the organizations at large.

● Collaborate with third party evaluators in and beyond the development space.

Apply if you have:

● 8-10 years of experience, ideally combined with 4-6 years of M&E experience in India or the other developing countries (across rural/urban livelihoods, education, health, environment). Experience with incubation support, impact investing or government engagement is desirable as well.

● Strong analytical and synthesis skills; experience in formulating data design and establishing a sound analytical framework around it. Strong statistical knowledge is a must.

● Ability to apply the knowledge of theoretical frameworks to practical situations.

● Ability to combine macroeconomic understanding with microeconomic aspects of programs.

● Keen interest in the challenge of working in a fast-paced, start-up environment.

● Strong communication skills and able to coordinate effectively with multiple stakeholders.

● Proven experience of building, nurturing and leading strong performing teams.

● A strong desire to make a difference and passionate about solving hard problems.

● Education with a focus on developmental studies, public policy, rural development, management or economics(preferred)
