ITDP seeks to engage the services of a reputable and qualified consultant with expertise in labour market analysis, management, and organisational development to undertake an independent salary, benefits, and job grading study in six countries of operation in the Africa region: Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. ITDP therefore solicits proposals from interested individuals to conduct the assessment and establish effective HR protocols for ITDP’s Africa office. The consultant will need to reference ITDP’s organisational policies and procedures, and all work must consider the local cultural context and labour laws.

OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT

  • Conduct an ITDP Africa staff engagement survey to gather staff perspectives on management practices, professional development, salary structures, and other relevant HR practices.
  • Develop recommendations for an improved organisational structure.

  • Conduct one-on-one interviews with all ITDP Africa team members to gather staff perspectives on performance appraisals, job classification, titles, JDs, salaries and benefits, and other areas.
  • Compile and suggest to ITDP a list of employers which may be considered as comparators, for the purpose of establishing staff remuneration and provide an explanation of why those market comparisons were chosen. Carry out a survey to compare ITDP salary and benefits levels with suitable comparators. Present survey findings and recommendations related to remuneration and benefits packages. Develop a framework with which rational revisions in salary structures can be made in response to changing organisation structures, staff roles, and market conditions.
  • Review and update the existing organisational structure of the Africa office. Conceptualise a new structure that can incorporate flexible subject-area verticals and develop a transition plan.
  • Review applicable HR handbooks and propose updates.
  • Support effective communication and change management throughout the process.

The consultant shall maintain complete confidentiality of all data and documents provided by selected comparator employers and by ITDP.

DELIVERABLES

  • A report on the staff appraisal process, including an assessment of the existing process and proposed changes.
  • Revised HR handbook.
