Impact Consultant (Global Development Awards)


The Global Development Awards Competition is an award scheme launched by the Global Development Network (GDN) with generous support from the Ministry of Finance, Government of Japan. The Awards Competition recognizes excellence in policy-oriented research, identifies talents, supports the career advancement of researchers in developing countries, and funds innovative social development projects benefiting marginalized groups in the developing world.

GDN is seeking to recruit a consultant (or a team of consultants) to document and analyze the impact and outcomes of the competition over the years, and to further investigate a number of success stories achieved through the competition. This will help strengthen the Awards visibility and support the Awards management team to further improve the competition in its next editions.

Start date: June 2016

Duration: 6 months

Location: home-based (possible travel to present the results of the impact report will be covered by GDN, if applicable)
