Who we are 


With over 45 years of experience, working in over 60 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door. We are working to fix market failures, shape future health markets and shift policy and funding to better support consumer empowered healthcare. 


There are over 8,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurial development professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and experience. All with unique skills that we bring to the critically important work that we do. 


Join us!


The Finance department supports the global operations of PSI, and we are looking for an experienced manager to join our Finance team to lead our inventory, subsidiary, investment and fixed asset accounting.   PSI moves millions of products around challenging operating environments to ensure that consumers get access to the health care products that they need.  Some of these products are funded by our donors, others are procured using PSI’s own fund.  Either way, we need to account for these products on a timely basis according to the various funding requirements as well as GAAP – be it inventory, related revenue and/or expenses.    The Accounting Manager will evaluate trends, performance and provide recommendations to management relating to the efficient execution of inventory management. 


PSI also is responsible for managing fixed assets which may be funded by PSI’s own funds or by donor funding.  We need to ensure that these are appropriately recorded in our books, tracked and depreciated as required.  Our largest asset is the building that we own, and which is managed through our real estate subsidiary.  This role gets to help us ensure that the transactions related to this business are accurately recorded and appropriately consolidated in our financial system. 



We are looking for someone who can look at the big picture while at the same time is not afraid to roll up their sleeves to ensure information is accurately recorded and to determine how to improve our processes and controls.
