CARE began its operations in Pakistan, as a multi-mandate organization, working for both longer-term development opportunities as well as supporting the most vulnerable communities in times of humanitarian crises. Since its establishment, CARE International in Pakistan (CIP) has worked across all parts of the country- from the hardest to reach areas to urban metropolises. CARE engages with private sector partners, government, and local communities to promote women’s economic empowerment with a particular focus on entrepreneurship development, financial inclusion, strengthening inclusive value chains, and increasing employability skills. Our approach goes beyond a singular focus on income generation to holistically promoting empowerment by focusing on strengthening women and girls’ education, confidence, negotiation skills and fostering an enabling environment that is free from gender based violence (GBV) in the world of work (especially sexual harassment and other gender biases).
I. Job Summary:
In light of the entrepreneurial milieu in Pakistan, CIP aims to support striver entrepreneurs (businesses with two to ten employees) by improving their access to finance, encouraging them to use digital tools such as mobile wallets, and marketing platforms to grow their businesses and provision of skill enhancement trainings and mentoring. In order to implement this project, CIP seeks to work through partners to provide financial services to beneficiary entrepreneurs. In this regard, the organization is recruiting a MEAL Specialist to provide technical support to its partners for the alignment, adaptation, and implementation of the project monitoring and evaluation framework.

The current project is being implemented in three countries and although the position entails managing M&E activities for the project component in Pakistan only, but the individual will be required to coordinate with the regional M&E to manage data and knowledge holistically, as well.
