Innovation & Learning Advisor

The IRC has joined forces with Mercy Corps to launch ADAPT (Analysis Driven Agile Programming Techniques), which will research, innovate and field test the potential of adaptive programming in complex contexts. 

The goal of ADAPT is to bring about a step change in the way implementing and donor agencies plan, resource and implement programs. ADAPT will provide the first clear articulation of field-tested techniques to plan and operate in fluid, unpredictable and complex contexts. ADAPT will build and continuously share evidence of how program adaptation makes a difference. ADAPT seeks to also bring about a change in the relationship between funding and implementing agencies. Ultimately, ADAPT seeks to enhance the humanitarian and development sector’s responsiveness, effectiveness and impact in complex contexts.

ADAPT will identify and test the key tenets of an adaptive organization and program, anticipated to be rooted in culture, people and skills, tools and processes, and donor mechanisms and incentives.  This will provide an evidence base that demonstrates the prime factors for enabling and encouraging adaptation in design, re-design and implementation.

The Purpose of the Role

The ADAPT collaboration seeks an Innovation and Learning Advisor to oversee and support five pilots of adaptive management approaches and work up further field-grounded innovations. Research findings will be shared to enhance the humanitarian and development sector’s responsiveness to, and impact in, complex contexts. Depending on the success of the pilots, some innovations may be recommended for wider application.

Senior Technical Advisor, Governance (Urban & Context)

Governance, Urban and Context work at the IRC

The IRC’s Governance Technical Unit (TU) is one of six technical units charged with providing demand-responsive technical support to IRC’s field teams, to identifying and sharing best practices, relevant evidence and innovative ideas across IRC’s field teams (and other technical units) and to promoting IRC’s role as a thought and practice leader within the humanitarian and development sectors. IRC’s governance work is focused around supporting individuals and groups to express their opinions and demand better services from those in power and to supporting public and private service provision institutions to function better and deliver appropriate services. Increasingly, the IRC’s work is occurring in urban contexts and this is driving the need for more contextually adaptive programming and analytical tools. The Governance TU is leading the IRC’s cross-sectoral response to urban crises, urban displacement and urban programming, working closely with other TUs and with policy and advocacy teams to lift the quality of urban programming within the IRC and across the sector.

The Purpose of the Role

The Senior Technical Advisor (STA) Governance – Urban & Context is a new role within the Governance Technical Unit (TU) that will coordinate and lead IRC’s policy and practice work around two related areas of work: urban crises and analysing and responding to disparate programming contexts (including urban settings).
