About Us

About the Job

The Data & Evaluation Officer will be responsible for supporting the implementation of local data collection processes and day-to-day management of the Children’s Ground data system, with oversight and support from the Research & Evaluation (R&E) Coordinators.

A key part of the role will be extracting standard and targeted data reports for communities, teams and the region. This position will contribute to data extraction for our operations in both Central Australia and the Top End. The focus of our monitoring and evaluation is to evidence the efficacy of the Children’s Ground Approach and system.

Working with all staff, this role will support the continued culture of locally relevant and robust monitoring, evaluation, research and development.

About You

You will have demonstrated experience in high-quality data collection, entry and analysis and quality assurance processes.
