We’re scouring the earth for the right people to join our team.
As a key member of the company’s leadership team, your mission will be to build out and grow the Innovation Business Unit including the strategy, resourcing, processes, product offering, and technical competencies. You will be responsible for the performance of a portfolio of projects executed by the Innovation team.
As the leader of the Innovation Business Unit, you will focus on team development and coaching, as well as quality oversight of your team’s project design and deliverables. Your primary aim will be to lead, oversee, and mentor multi-talented and diverse design teams to discover root causes of problems, collaboratively come up with solutions, develop strategies, test those hypotheses, and ultimately present scalable recommendations to our clients. These recommendations may translate into helping client organizations refine their product and service offering, re-thinking their distribution channels, and even disrupt their business model entirely.
At times, you will also join in project design and implementation, rolling up your sleeves to serve as project lead for larger, more complicated and technical projects with our clients.
Feel right for you? Throw your hat in the ring!
Priority will be given to those applications received by 7 August, 2017, but, the sooner the better so we encourage you to submit soon!
You are an entrepreneurial, collaborative, nimble “doer” not afraid to try new things or roll up your sleeves to lead the business development of a social enterprise disrupting the development model through human-centered design, design thinking, research, and marketing.
You are a forward-looking strategic business development leader who has led proposal efforts for multi-year public sector funded international development projects (think USAID, DfID, DFAT, UN) along with experience cultivating commercial, private sector, and foundation partnerships. You thrive in a fast-paced environment where you are constantly challenged while remaining friendly and optimistic. You are unfazed by constrained resources and are excited by the challenge of bringing a bit or order to chaos.
You are excited and motivated by finding new ways to make an impact and innovating the way business development is done and have the confidence, energy, and gravitas to serve as an ambassador for the company.
