FCDO’s Africa Regional Department (ARD) is the third largest spending department in FCDO’s Africa Divisions. Oversight of this portfolio has been identified as a key risk due to lack of FCDO presence in many countries where ARD programmes are delivered, and a substantial portion of delivery taking place in insecure or inaccessible locations which limit scope for FCDO staff to monitor delivery through field visits. This makes it difficult for ARD to assure the quality of data reported by partners on the delivery of programme activities and results. FCDO has engaged Tetra Tech (TT) as a third-party monitoring (TPM) supplier to support the verification of programme monitoring in the Africa region across its portfolio of humanitarian, conflict, water, energy, climate change, trade, organised crime, and agricultural development programmes. ARD programmes operate across Africa. Countries include Angola, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Democratic Rep. Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Republic of South Sudan, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The Qualitative Research Consultant will form part of task teams that will deliver a range of TPM products of varying scope and timeframes. Each TPM product will be conducted for a specific ARD portfolio programme in one or more programme locations.

The Qualitative Research Consultant will be involved in activities including:
