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.
PSI, together with a team of international and local partners, will implement the USAID-funded Advancing UHC in Bangladesh (AUHC) project to transform the world’s largest NGO network of maternal and health clinics across 64 districts in Bangladesh into a sustainable, pro-poor social enterprise, the Surjer Hashi Network (SHN), to advance the country’s progress toward universal health coverage.
We are looking for an energetic and creative Marketing Officer who is passionate about making markets work for a social cause, delivered through a sustainable business model to help us with the network transformation. In this role you will effectively plan, develop and implement all strategic marketing activities aimed at accelerating the transition of the network to achieve a sustainable health service delivery network that meets the needs of the poor in Bangladesh while increasing its long-term prospects through an expanded revenue base. If you are an entrepreneurial person who thrives on creating marketing strategies to build brands, understands how to leverage market and consumer insights to unlock growth, enjoys managing a P&L, and can design and execute a strategy - read on! No relocation costs are offered with this position.
In this role you will support the Marketing Advisor and AUHC team to plan, develop and implement all strategic marketing activities:
What are we looking for?
The candidate we hire will embody PSI’s corporate values:
Measurement: You use hard evidence to make decisions and guide your work. You set clear goalposts in advance and explain clearly if you need to move them.
Pragmatism: You’ll strive to deliver the best possible result with the resources available. You won’t be paralyzed by a need to make things perfect.
Honesty: You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings – it’s the only way you’ll learn and improve.
Collaboration: You’ll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters, and in our country offices – if you try to do it all yourself, you won’t succeed.
Trust: You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt
Commitment: You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin
