Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has a decade of proven experience leveraging the global power of soccer to prevent HIV and AIDS. To date, over 600,000 young people have graduated from GRS programs in 22 countries around the world. GRS was founded in 2002 by a close group of friends who witnessed the devastation of HIV among their professional soccer teammates in Zimbabwe. Since that time, GRS has evolved into one of the leading sport for development public health NGOs. The organization’s global headquarters are in Norwich, VT with African headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa and additional offices in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and London. The GRS team currently encompasses over 170 full time team members in 5 countries on 3 continents, as well as over 500 coaches in South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
About the role
The Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator based in Cape Town is responsible for the tools, systems and standard operating procedures that monitor the performance of GRS programmes and activities. The person will be the key liasion between the M&E team and sites of programme delivery to facilitate high data quality, customer service and standardisation of practice. The M & E Coordinator is also responsible for implementing trainnig and building capacity at sites to constantly improve our M&E processes.

GRS is where it is today through what we believe is a pretty rare mix of very clear mission, passion, humility, and a singular focus on quantifiable outcomes. As such, we’ve built a hard-earned and proud reputation among the global funding community as one of the few NGOs for whom “return on investment” is a given, and we don’t take that reputation lightly. Continual innovation is at the core of who we are and we’re not afraid to lead from the front. GRS isn’t for everyone, and a ‘fit’ with our culture is a must. You must have contagious positive energy, a passion for our mission, be self-motivated and demonstrate incredible teamwork. You will have an extraordinary ability convey complex ideas in a simple and concise way and a talent for building capacity and empowering people.
We’re an organization comprised of refreshingly sharp, confident and committed individuals who truly thrive on the strength of the combined team – the whole at GRS is a great deal more than the sum of the parts. A Masters degree is preferred and you have proven experience in developing and implementing highly effective monitoring and evaluation tools. The M&E Coordinator will both thrive in, and make an enormous contribution to our unique and very special organization.
