We partner with and serve communities, governments, and companies throughout the world, providing an innovative mix of advisory, investment, research, analytics, and design services. Today’s complex global problems require new solutions. Comprised of Dalberg Advisors, Dalberg Capital, Dalberg Design, Dalberg Data Insights and Dalberg Research; our businesses approach problems differently and work together to create impact at scale. We are from everywhere, at home anywhere - an African and American company as much as an Asian, Middle Eastern, and European one.
Dalberg is a place where a diverse mix of talented individuals are able to bring their authentic selves to work – whether it’s how you identify, where you come from, the languages you speak, the person you love, the way you worship. Dalberg is a home where people feel safe, understood, nurtured and encouraged to grow.

Established in 2001 by experienced private sector consultants, Dalberg operates from 26 worldwide locations. For more information, please visit Dalberg.
In our advisory work, monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) is one of the most common services that we are asked to do. Regular reporting and accountability that MEL activities provide are no doubt important. However, at Dalberg Asia we believe that MEL should be about more than compliance-based, rigorous evaluations for donors and high-level officers. We see MEL as integral to programme design and strategy and is often the best opportunity to course correct and align everyone that is part of a programme towards one goal.
We work closely with our clients throughout the course of the a programme’s life-cycle to help uncover important learnings that can help organizations increase their impact. Even more than MEL findings, we have found that going through the MEL process from defining indicators to assessing impact with our clients is what helps organizations uncover more about themselves and how they can work more effectively. As a result, our work in MEL is crucial to many of our relationships and consulting work.
Given the importance of MEL across our portfolio of work, we are looking for an individual with a passion and deep expertise in MEL to help lead and coordinate our Asia MEL work across many projects. We are looking for someone who will help us build and formalize the Asia MEL Practice Area into something that internally pushes our Asia MEL work to even better levels of quality and can help us to provide new and better MEL services to our clients.
