Status: Open

  • Consultancy

Internews is seeking a qualified consultant to hire as a final evaluator for its project, the Journalist Security Fellowship (JSF), during February to June 2024. The evaluation will be conducted fully remotely/online.

Expected Tasks and Deliverables

  • Submission of an inception report outlining detailed evaluation methodology design.
  • Conduct a comprehensive desk review that involves reviewing programmatic documentation produced by the project team to grasp the structure, evolution, and needs of the project.

  • Conduct data collection, which will include the preparation of data collection tools, conducting interviews, focus group discussions, and/or other data collection activities with project staff and partners, fellows, and other stakeholders in the project countries.
  • Conduct a comprehensive data analysis by bringing together the relevant data collected in the previous phases to respond to the evaluation framework and develop strategic and operational recommendations.

  • Submission of report on the experiences of participants from scenario-based trainings held in Albania, Bulgaria, and Croatia. This report should be separate from but accompanying the final evaluation report.
