Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.
The Southern Africa (SA) team is known for our social enterprises and innovations in HIV- related work, including self-testing and VMMC. Currently, we have programs operating in Lesotho, Madagascar, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
We are looking for an Associate Program Manager (APM) to help us provide strategic support to PSI’s programs in Southern Africa. The APM should be passionate about contributing to the health of those we serve around the world, love numbers and working with data, like the challenge of linking programs with finances, and have a curiosity for why things are the way they are and confidence to ask how we can do better.
The APM will have wide‑ranging responsibilities working with PSI staff at all levels both in Washington and overseas, providing program management and technical support for two countries in the Southern Africa region. The APM will serve as the key liaison between the country teams and PSI global services, serving as a champion for the field. The APM will have wide-ranging responsibilities and requires flexibility and willingness to assume varied duties and projects with an emphasis on administrative tasks. The APM will pro-actively meet programmatic and administrative needs, juggle multiple competing priorities, and enthusiastically ensure smooth and timely flow of work. This position is based in Washington, D.C. and reports to a Program Manager for Southern Africa.
