EOI for Developing ACFID’s first State of the Sector Report

ACFID is looking to engage a consultant to work with ACFID staff and key stakeholders to prepare the first ACFID State of the Sector report.

The purpose of the report is to provide ACFID with an up-to-date, evidence-based, comprehensive and robust analysis of the state of the not-for-profit aid and development sector in Australia. This will draw primarily on information provided by and about ACFID’s membership but will seek to locate this in a larger context drawing on data provided by the ACNC and other sources.

The target audiences for the report are the public, government, ACFID members and ACFID itself. The report will be used to:

  • Inform public and government understanding of and engagement with the not-for-profit aid and development sector.
  • Enhance member’s understanding of and capacity to respond to the changing state of the sector.
  • Enhance ACFID’s use of evidence in developing and evaluating its change strategies.

ACFID is looking for a consultant with the requisite skills/experience including:

  • Understanding of the not-for-profit aid and development sector.
  • Ability to lead a multi-functional team.
  • Ability to work in a participatory and collaborative manner with diverse stakeholders.
  • Ability to transfer skills through effective mentoring and coaching.
  • Experience in developing data collection systems and tools.
  • Ability to collect, aggregate, analyse and draw conclusions from quantitative qualitative data
  • Ability to write clearly, succinctly and persuasively for non-expert audiences.

Full details are in the attached Terms of Reference.
