Every employee of IRI is responsible for carrying out the Mission of IRI and demonstrating the core values in their
day to day operations.
The Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Specialist is primarily responsible for providing data collection,
management, organization and analysis support to the Middle East Regional Civic Initiative (MERCI). The MEL
Specialist also serves as the coordinator for all reports on the MERCI program to headquarters in Washington DC
and to the funder. This includes collating and ensuring the quality of data, including indicator data, reported in PMPs and all other similar indices. The MEL Specialist will liaise with staff in IRI’s Washington DC headquarters to answer questions and fulfill requests related to MEL activities, data collection and similar issues related to the MERCI program. The MEL Specialist may also be expected to provide training and capacity building support to IRI staff and partners on MEL topics.
