Building on a prototype app for MSD’s employment assistance programmes


Ministry of Social Development



Project description

MSD has work underway to better communicate and store the information it holds about its programmes. As part of this work, we have developed a prototype app that presents contextual information and outcome results of MSD’s employment assistance programmes. MSD intends to extend the working prototype by building new visualisations that will present more detailed information, for example programme outcomes for sub-groups, and detailed analysis of intervention costs. The intern will undertake a project that will contribute to the new app by designing, producing and testing options for data visualisations.

Skills required

Analysis, statistics, design, R programming language (with experience in Shiny package desirable), data visualisation.
