Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?

Who we are
Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We are a diverse group of over 5,000 entrepreneurial development professionals located in over 40 countries committed to making it easier for all people to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire. PSI is using it’s global presence and 50+ years of experience to help reimagine healthcare. We are working to shape market systems, shift policy and funding, and strengthen global capacity to better support consumer empowered healthcare.
Through its newly established Health Systems Accelerator (HSA), PSI aims to intensify its support to governments in low- and middle-income countries in their efforts to move towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC). PSI will do so by adopting a distinct approach that complements the work of other actors operating in the health systems strengthening (HSS) landscape.
HSA seeks an energetic and creative candidate to provide operational oversight for a USD $4-million three-year investment called the Self-Care Trailblazer Group (SCTG), made possible with the generous support of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The SCTG is a global membership coalition established in November 2018 to advance the evidence, practice, learning, and policy landscape of self-care. PSI houses the staff that make up the SCTG Secretariat, which supports the coalition-building functions for the SCTG, including operations, administration, communications, outreach, and global advocacy. The Secretariat also oversees deliverables for the SCTG’s programmatic elements and reporting to donors.
We are looking for an Assistant Program Manager (APM) who can provide robust project management support to the SCTG and proactively contribute to making project operations even more streamlined and efficient. The APM will be expected to support the core program management team with typical project management tasks relating to oversight of contractual relationships with subrecipient partners and financial management and reporting. The project is currently transitioning to a new phase of implementation and is in a fast-paced ‘scale-up’ mode. The successful candidate will bring an exceptional ability to multi-task, communicate effectively across multiple time zones and with a wide variety of audiences, adhere to donor reporting requirements and PSI policies, and proactively flag and mitigate project implementation risks.
