We are looking for an entrepreneurial, dynamic Communications and Knowledge Management Advisor to help strengthen knowledge management to ensure efficient and effective reuse of information internally and externally. This post will be shared between the marketing and family planning/reproductive (FP/RH) health teams, establishing mechanisms to ensure the smooth flow and use of information by both teams and across PSI to allow stakeholders access to information that will increase quality and effectiveness of our work.
The Global Marketing Department supports PSI’s goal of making it easy for our target audience and her family to adopt healthy behaviors. We place the needs, interests and engagement of our audience at the heart of all of our efforts. To achieve this, the marketing team has developed a consumer-centric, market focused approach underpinned by commercial marketing principles and grounded in deep health area expertise. The marketing team supports the design and execution of sustainable and scalable solutions tailored to our audience’s needs that shapes market systems for sustainable impact. The team supports all health areas and regions to execute marketing discipline in program design and execution with a renewed focus toward assessment, capture and dissemination of lessons learned and replicable models throughout PSI’s network.
The Family Planning (FP) and Reproductive Health (RH) Department supports programs in 37 countries (and counting) to deliver high-quality family planning and safe abortion services to women and girls. We protect our clients’ sexual & reproductive health rights by ensuring informed choice, voluntarism, client confidentiality & privacy, client safety and continuity of care. A flagship program within the FP&RH department is Support for International Family Planning and Health Organizations 2: Sustainable Networks (SIFPO2). This five-year USAID-funded program is designed to strengthen family planning programs and other health services worldwide, with a focus on strengthening private sector channels including social franchise networks.
As Communications and Knowledge Management Advisor you will be responsible for creating a knowledge sharing culture within PSI, starting with the Global Marketing and FP/RH departments, to allow more effective decision-making and to accelerate success. You will also work closely with External Relations and Communication (ERC) to ensure strategic reuse of information by external audiences.
