Job Title: Program Coordinator, French Speaker
Who we are
Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We are a diverse group of over 5,000 entrepreneurial development professionals located in over 40 countries committed to making it easier for all people to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire. PSI is using it’s global presence and 50+ years of experience to help reimagine healthcare. We are working to shape market systems, shift policy and funding, and strengthen global capacity to better support consumer empowered healthcare.
The Program Coordinator will support PSI's operational excellence and execution of quality and standards by providing wide-ranging administrative and operational support. The Program Coordinator will liaise across PSI including country project teams and global technical and service departments to support project objectives and ensure PSI compliance requirements are met. The Program Coordinator will initially focus on a regional malaria vector control project and then transition to support a regional malaria chemoprevention project focused on prevention of malaria through an intervention called Intermittent Preventive Treatment in infants using sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP-IPTi). The SP-IPTi project is a four year, seven country project that will implement co-designed SP-IPTi pilots, conduct a package of evaluations to generate evidence, and subsequently influence country-level and global policy to lead to the further uptake of SP-IPTi, ultimately reducing malaria cases and mortality in infants under two years old. The Program Coordinator will be a key member of a dynamic and supportive team, with the chance to work across components of the project and opportunities for professional learning and growth.
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.
