About the role

We are recruiting for a Senior Consultant to join our Consultancy and Research Team within the Strategic Growth Function  

Senior Consultants are the engine of the Strategic Growth Function. They pursue, design, manage and deliver strategic opportunities in our core areas of expertise that help us achieve our charitable mission to transform lives by improving education around the world. They are pro-active in identifying and pursuing new business, they are highly skilled in problem solving and solution design and are adaptable to different contexts, clients and changing circumstances. They are outstanding communicators with excellent writing skills, able to engage and build rapport with clients, partners and other stakeholders in person and remotely. They live and breathe our core methods and contribute to continuously developing and improving them as we learn from our programmes and the wider evidence base.  

As an (international development) Senior Consultant with a focus on delivery, you will provide and manage high quality research and consultancy services to donors, governments and charities internationally, as part of an ambitious and dynamic team which sits at the heart of Education Development Trust. You will also play a significant role in shaping the direction and growth of the consultancy business, with opportunities to lead product development, policy and thought leadership initiatives. 

You will be based in our Regional Office in Kenya, working alongside colleagues who are delivering on our large programmes across the region and our growing hub of business development and consultancy and research focal points. You will have opportunities to build relationships with colleagues across the business and will be responsible for ensuring synergies and alignment of consultancy, research and business development activities with the long term strategic growth ambitions for the region. 

Your background might be in an improvement role in the school sector, you might be leading a medium-large scale donor programme, you might be in a research role in the education sector, or you might be in a business consultancy role with strong transferable skills.

We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: 
– Quantitative research methods and analysis 

– Monitoring, evaluation and learning frameworks
– Teacher professional development 
– School leadership development 
– Government capacity building and system strengthening 
– School improvement and raising school standards at scale, especially in numeracy and literacy 
– Accountability and/or inspections and/or evaluation 

You will have excellent consultancy skills, as comfortable in a project design role applying our research insights, as working in complex delivery teams internationally.
