Office Culture: We call it “flexible remote.” Translation: We’re not requiring staff who are not f/t remote to come into the office a prescribed number of days or a percentage of time each week. Working closely with managers, employees may work virtually, work onsite following our safety protocols, or a blend of the two. We ensure that these decisions are people-centered and best suit your work, flexibility needs, and the needs of your team. We’re intentionally working to create and foster a Christ-centered community in a variety of ways. Managers are doubling down on building a sense of community and connectedness with their teams in new and innovative ways with the help of organizational tools and activities.  

Company Size/Type: Nearly 1000 (World Vision U.S.) / 34,000+ worldwide (World Vision International). We’re a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.  

02 The Job One strategic goal of the WASH program is to demonstrate sustainable impact with a commitment to becoming a global leader in WASH monitoring practices. These monitoring efforts not only enable World Vision to make more effective programming decisions but also improve engagement with other stakeholders in the WASH sector to mobilize additional financing for WASH services.

In response to this commitment, a baseline assessment was conducted with nearly 500 WASH staff members across the partnership. This survey identified two key areas to focus on to strengthen World Vision’s WASH monitoring practices, with 84% of respondents reporting challenges related to these areas: (1) accelerate the use of digital monitoring and (2) implement a capacity-building plan for staff on WASH monitoring tools and practices.

As the scale and use of digital monitoring grow, our efforts to support this digital transformation must grow as well to ensure that the data collected is of the highest quality and that it can be transformed into insights and action. Additionally, with the availability of this data, the demand for creating mapping tools and dashboards to leverage these insights has increased as well. 

03 What success looks like (1) Maintain the World Vision WASH mWater hub and support the daily management of the customized configuration. (2) Support staff capacity-building efforts in mWater through the creation and facilitation of training combined with troubleshooting support. (3) Map WASH assets using GIS to support programming decisions, proposal development, and donor reporting. (4) Conduct desk audits of data in mWater to assess data completeness and correctness. (5) Champion processes and tools pertaining to monitoring practices and reporting standardization to drive programming decisions toward better effectiveness.
