About the programme

The Government of the Republic of the Philippines, with the support of the European Union, is implementing the Justice Sector Reform Programme: Governance in Justice II (GOJUST II). 

GOJUST II is funded by the European Union to the value of €19 million and implemented by the British Council and United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). GOJUST II builds on and continues the work of its predecessor, GOJUST, which was implemented from April 2016 to September 2020. GOJUST II is implemented in joint co-financing with the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (€1 million). 

The objective of GOJUST is to contribute to inclusive and sustainable socio-economic development through improved access to justice for all in the Philippines. Specifically, it aims to develop more responsive and accountable justice services. It includes two components focusing on justice and human rights, respectively. The programme is being implemented from December 2020 to June 2025.

Background of the assignment

Monitoring performance and using evidence for learning and improved practice is critical for both successful justice sector institutions, and for interventions like GOJUST II which seek to develop these institutions. Within state agencies, there is a dire need to establish mechanisms and processes to improve systems and performance monitoring that would ensure delivery of quality justice services in the long term.

Within GOJUST II, the lasting impact of the programme and value-for-money demand a comprehensive approach to data gathering, analysis and communication. The programme seeks to improve the way justice policy and practice is informed by evidence to be more responsive to justice needs through the appointment of a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Officer.

Role overview

The Monitoring Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Officer will lead the implementation of the GOJUST II MEL strategy and plan that will deliver robust evidence on the results and impact achieved by the programme.

Specific objectives of the role: 

  • Ensure the successful implementation of the MEL strategy and workplan of GOJUST II, ensuring client, corporate and programme standards are fully met.
