  • Enabling Country Directors, PDQ and technical teams to build strong relationships and funding partners

Does this sound like you?

You are someone who thrives in highly innovative and agile environments. You’ll have exceptional inter-personal skills, well-developed stakeholder relationship management skills and a flexible communication style. This role suits those who are motivated by having significant social impact, with strong business acumen, strategic selling expertise, and excellent communication skills. You will be determined to make a difference.

This role requires:

  • Demonstrated experience identifying and securing funding from DAC/non-DAC government donors, multilateral agencies, corporate donors and/or foundations
