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 7,000 “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.
We are looking for an Associate Risk & Compliance Manager to drive excellence in compliance and risk mitigation within PSI’s new Foundation Markets Department. With country programs in Haiti, Liberia, Madagascar, Mali, Sierra Leone, Somaliland and South Sudan, the Foundation Markets team supports exciting global health projects funded by a multitude of donors.
The Associate Manager should be passionate about contributing to the health of those we serve around the world; get excited to drive the link between compliance, risk mitigation, and creating sustainable health impact; have a curiosity for why things are the way they are and confidence to ask how we can do better, and a desire to then help drive that positive change.
The Associate Manager will have wide‑ranging responsibilities working with PSI staff at all levels both in Washington and overseas, providing support in the areas of audit compliance; grant compliance across a wide variety of donors; subrecipient management and compliance; overall country risk review and mitigation; and institutionalizing best practices and lessons learned at an organization-wide level, thus contributing to “One PSI” network standards of compliance excellence, in line with the policies and procedures established by PSI’s Grants & Contracts, Finance and Global Internal Audit Departments.
The position requires flexibility, attention to detail, proactivity, strong organizational skills, and a willingness to assume varied duties and projects. This position is based in Washington, D.C. and reports to the Senior Risk & Compliance Manager.

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
