The Centre for Human Rights is a Department of the Faculty of Law, with a mandate for post graduate academic programmes in human rights, general human rights education and training, as well as programmatic work for the promotion of human rights in Africa and beyond. In pursuit of this mandate, the Centre is engaged in a variety of research, advocacy, and capacity building initiatives, a majority of which are externally/donor funded. 

To keep track of the progress that the Centre makes towards the realization of its strategic objectives through its programmes, the Centre relies on regular monitoring and evaluation of its projects and programmes. It is for this purpose that the Centre seeks to recruit a monitoring and evaluation assistant to support its work. The Centre seeks the assistance of an M&E Assistant to contribute to its work in this regard.
