About the project:
The Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Promoting Rural Incomes through Support for Markets in Agriculture (PRISMA) is a five -year program (2019 – 2023) funded by the Australian Government’s aid program and implemented in cooperation with the Government of Indonesia. The program will build upon the achievements and results of Phase 1 (2013-2018), using a market systems development (MSD) approach to support inclusive economic growth in Indonesia’s agriculture sector.

PRISMA 2 will improve smallholder farmers’ competitiveness and access to new markets, better inputs, know-how and technology. It will aim to achieve a sustainable 30% increase in the net incomes of a further 700,000 smallholder far ming households in Indonesia by 2023 (total 1 million farming households). The program operates in six provinces: East Java, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), Papua, West Papua and Central Java.

About the Role:
The Chief Quality Officer (CQO), reporting into the CEO of PRISMA will have overall responsibility for ensuring all program interventions pass quality control checks with respect to clear and plausible impact logic, value for money criteria, results management plans and implementation feasibility to reach the program’s stated outcomes. The CQO oversees the Results Measurement and Learning (RML) team and the Management Information Systems (MIS) team to monitor program inputs, performance and results to enable intervention teams to manage effectively and adaptively with the aim of achieving systemic change. For detailed responsibilities please see attached Terms of Reference (ToR).

About you:
You have significant diverse professional experience or equivalent combination of education and experience in international development, especially using the market systems approach. Proven experience providing strategic direction and management support to large RML teams and demonstrated skills and experience in monitoring and results measurement to a high level of compliance with the DCED in a market systems context, and ability to ensure that themes such as Gender, Diversity, Inclusion and Nutrition are strongly integrated.

You are an excellent communicator with great inter-personal skills and ability to work collaboratively and a flair for innovation and unconventional solutions. Working proficiency in English is a must but if you bring skills in speaking, reading and writing in Indonesian that would be very advantageous.
