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.
We are looking for an Associate Program Manager (APM) to help us provide operational support to PSI’s programs in our new Franco-Lusophone Department. Most country programs are supported by multiple donors and focus on global health projects across Francophone and Lusophone Africa.
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 budgeting support to a portfolio of up to three country programs. 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 provide support to country programs in a wide variety of areas. 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, attention to detail, 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 Program Manager.
