Job Title:   Data and Insights Manager


Organisation: Purposeful Productions

Reporting Lines: Senior Learning and Insights Manager

Contract: 16 months fixed contract (Subject to probationary period)




Purposeful currently provides financial resources in the form of grants and awards to girls and their allies fighting on the front lines of oppression. We support a host of grassroots partners, many girl-led, unregistered or receiving formal funding for the very first time. We redistribute resources to girls and the groups that support them as one way of redressing power disparities – in community and in broader philanthropic and development spaces. As such, the way we give is as important as what we give, with a range of participation models used across our Karo Kura grants.


In addition, because we believe that solidarity forms the strong roots of any movement, we prioritise spaces of mutual learning, reciprocity and radical connection. Purposeful is proud to provide holistic support to a whole host of organisations – from those led directly by girls, to others just embarking on journeys to centre girls in their work. A relationship-based approach shifts the funding power paradigm to create a partnership which is powered by our respective strengths.


In 2020, Purposeful and partners launched a new virtual and physical Safe Spaces programme, supported by DFID and in partnership with community based organisations across six districts in Sierra Leone. The Support to Adolescent Girls Empowerment (SAGE) programme, also known as Girls’ Circles, brings together many years of evidence-based best practice on the safe space model, layered with innovative programme additions that support girls to build their power and access the assets and networks they need to remake the world for themselves. It is coupled with Karo Kura Konnections - a series of connected media products, including a radio drama and talk show, projecting new narratives about girls’ potential, and leveraging traditional art forms. Girls’ Circle is reaching 15,450 girls across 6 districts, underpinned by a network of 618 mentors.


Purposeful seeks an individual with intellectual curiosity, creativity and a combination of experience, skill, and passion for drawing out insights from quantitative and qualitative data to tell powerful stories and inform effective programming. The Data and Insights Manager will support efforts to track, analyze, report and improve the quality of monitoring data, deepen knowledge about girls, and discover how the work of Purposeful and partners impact their life trajectories.
