Job Description:

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Genesis Analytics is a global firm that has worked in more than 84 countries across the world. Our roots are firmly in Africa, having worked in 42 of the 54 countries on the continent, making us a truly global African firm. Established in 1998, Genesis is headquartered in Johannesburg and has offices in Abidjan, Nairobi, Lagos and London. We also have representation in India, the UAE and Canada so we can work closely with our clients to find scalable solutions that work.

Our purpose as a firm is to unlock and realise value through jointly creating solutions with our clients. The foundation of our distinctive delivery lies in our technical skills and deep sector knowledge developed through our work within both the private and public sectors.

We have expertise in human development, youth employment, public health and financing, behavioural economics, competition economics and regulation, the digital economy, financial services strategy, monitoring & evaluation as well as shared value and corporate impact. Some of our best work has been through leveraging our complementary areas of expertise to find bespoke solutions.

Our clients include all levels of government, development agencies, foundations, regulators, banks, development finance institutions, non-government organisations, social businesses, and private companies.

The Evaluation for Development team currently consists of 15 team members, located in South Africa, Kenya and the UK. We work across Sub-Saharan Africa and other emerging economies. We break down the allure of one-size-fits-all strategies by demonstrating the value that context-appropriate African-led solutions can unlock. We apply this approach across everything we do – from strategy development, to programme design and implementation, to research and evaluation.

Our work cuts across sectors, but our core area of expertise is related to unlocking value in Africa by identifying market-based solutions to enable more inclusive economic growth, including job creation and enterprise development.

In our practice, we believe that our team culture enables a unique, individualised professional experience for each of our team members. Our collective culture also enables us to better serve our clients and to be more effective in working towards development objectives.

E4D’s work is focused on two inter-related areas (1) Monitoring Evaluation and Learning and (2) working with partners to promote economic opportunity across the African continent in order to improve inclusion. 

Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) 

Genesis’s E4D team is a trusted provider of monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) services we combine our deeply rooted understanding of the African context with our extensive experience in qualitative and quantitative monitoring and evaluation (M&E) methods to assess progress, measure value creation, and facilitate internal and external learning. We provide three service lines:

  1. Programme evaluation and impact evaluation
  2. Monitoring and results management (MRM) systems design
  3. Integrated MEL partnerships

Economic Opportunity

In pursuit of expanded and more inclusive economic opportunities, we seek solutions that improve market functioning, enable innovation and technological progress and promote investment. We use expert economic analysis, laser-focused problem-solving techniques and intersectional knowledge and experience to uncover the root causes of market failure. We work with our clients and partners to jointly discover and develop market-based solutions that enabled expanded and more inclusive economic opportunities.

Our team is seeking to recruit and develop exceptional talent in monitoring, evaluation, economic analysis, and problem solving. Graduates looking to explore Genesis on a short-term basis – for instance before their Masters degree or during a longer holiday  – should apply for the Intern roles.

These roles can be undertaken from any of our offices and, if necessary, from home, for around 6 – 24 weeks.
