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 7,000 “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.
Though contested by other departments, the EA team is clearly the best at PSI. EA is known as the innovation lab, a place where exciting new ideas in global health are tested. Currently, we have programs operating in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Somaliland, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.
We are looking for an Associate Program Manager (APM) to help us provide strategic support to PSI’s global malaria programs. 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 to the Malaria Department’s portfolio of global projects. 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 is responsible for managing project data collection, analysis and reporting; coordinating donor reporting and ensuring contractual compliance; and engaging with country teams around strategy and sustainability issues. The APM will pro-actively meet programmatic and administrative needs, juggle multiple competing priorities, and enthusiastically ensure smooth and timely flow of work. The position requires flexibility, strong organizational skills and a willingness to assume varied duties and projects. This position is based in Washington, D.C. and reports to Program Manager for East Africa.
