Before moving on from Oxfam GB, Jonathan worked as a Global Impact Evaluation Adviser. He provided specialist advice on tools, methods, and processes for undertaking rigorous impact evaluation on Oxfam's projects. He worked on a range of focused evaluations of a random sample of Oxfam's projects in order to capture and communicate Oxfam's effectiveness as an organisation and promote effective learning. He worked in particular on evaluating projects aimed at building resilience.
