Careers

Programme Director

Location: London, with international travel

Salary: Competitive

We are now seeking a Programme Director possessing additive sectoral and contextual experience in Education or Youth Employment. While each of our Programme Directors has a specific area of technical strength (such as Education), we collaborate as teams inside and outside our areas of technical expertise to ensure that the needs of our partners are met.

With outstanding representation and relationship building skills, you will lead high-level partnerships with governments and other implementation partners, working closely with them to design and manage investments that meet their goals. Preferably with experience of complex and large-scale programme implementation in sub-Saharan Africa, you understand how to manage politically sensitive relationships with government leaders in the most effective way. Your exceptional communication abilities across different cultural contexts and belief in the value of true partnership working to achieve change will be essential.

To lead us to programmatic success, you will need substantial knowledge of the education or youth employment landscape in multiple countries and bring a highly strategic and entrepreneurial approach. You’ll be supported by a deeply committed founder and multinational board, as well as an experienced and talented staff team.

At Big Win Philanthropy, you can expect a collaborative, supportive and ambitious culture. We are a small and entrepreneurial team that encourages new ideas and we are passionate about helping transform outcomes for children and young people in sub-Saharan African countries. We believe we are uniquely placed to leverage impact that extends beyond this initiative, and are seeking people that share our values and our vision for transformational change.
