WORK FOR AN AWARD-WINNING NON-PROFIT SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2004, Build Change is an innovative non‐profit social enterprise whose mission is to save lives in earthquakes and hurricanes. We do that by designing disaster-resistant houses and schools; training homeowners, builders, engineers and government officials to build them; working with governments to develop and implement building standards; partnering with the private sector to improve building materials quality and create jobs; and facilitating access to incentive-based capital for reconstruction and retrofitting by partnering with financing institutions and government subsidy programs.

You will have the opportunity to guide this program as it scales up through public and private sector partners providing financing for home retrofitting, towards Build Change’s strategic organizational objective of impacting 250,000 safer houses in the next five years.
You will lead Build Change’s fund and partnership development for the Philippines, developing and managing partnerships with philanthropic funders, multilateral institutions, government agencies and the disaster risk financing and insurance sector. You will supervise the in-country management team, and serve as Build Change’s fiscal and legal representative in the Philippines.
