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.
The Corporate Partnership and Philanthropy group (CPP), which includes both Corporate Partnerships and the Maverick Collective, matches risk-tolerant funding, resources and investments from the private sector with PSI’s most cutting-edge innovations and initiatives. With a portfolio of private sector and philanthropic partnerships across the medical equipment, pharmaceutical, fast moving consumer goods, and technology industries, the CPP team is fueling PSI’s ability to fund innovative work and insights that traditional donors will not. When done right, these investments define best practices in international development and global health, shaping and directing future funding flows.
The CPP team operates as a global resource within PSI and as such, works with and through our global network of affiliates. Sitting at the intersection of our field and technical teams and the private sector, CPP bridges disparate interests to find common ground for powerful partnerships, in service to PSI’s mission of global health for all. Importantly, as traditional donors shift their investments, CPP will be a primary engine for PSI’s ability to continue to deliver market-ready, innovative approaches in global public health. Collectively, we’re aspiring to bring $75M in private sector capital to bear in disrupting the current systems and market failures that hinder consumers’ ability to access high quality health products and services around the globe by 2021.

What are we looking for?
The candidate we hire will embody PSI’s corporate values:
Collaboration: You can work independently, but thrive within a team.
Trust: You trust that your manager and team will have your back and care deeply about gaining that same trust from your teammates
Pragmatism: You dive in and maintain momentum even when things are ambiguous and you don’t let perfect get in the way of good enough.
Honesty: You aren’t afraid to speak up and speak your mind.
Measurement: You set clear and challenging goals and hold yourself accountable to driving measurable results.
Commitment: You’re independent and a free thinker, but you’re ready to buy in to the direction of the team and commit to its success.
In summary, there’s three archetypes that will succeed in this role: a proven dealmaker from the private sector looking to make the world a better place; a seasoned global NGO leader who recognizes the private sector has an increasingly important role to play in delivering the SDGs; or a strategic partnerships expert who knows PSI offers global opportunity and the scale to bring powerful ideas to life.
