Description of roles 

With these roles, we will expand and amplify our ability to provide tech and data support to partners in these regions in ways that are timely, context-appropriate and creative

Our ideal candidates are committed to our mission and are passionate about the work we do. We are looking for team members who understand the realities in which civil society organisations operate and who are able to develop relationships with local partners, and provide tailored tech and data support​​.

They are excellent communicators and are able to work with diverse cultural backgrounds​​. They also recognise that not all problems need a technology solution and that creativity matched with strong organisational skills can lead to new pathways. 

To grow and thrive, it is critical that the new Associates possess these qualities:

  1. Project Design and Implementation: Experience in collaboratively designing,  implementing, and coordinating projects with data, technology, and design components​​.
  2. Technical Support for Civil Society: Ability to provide technical support to our partners in civil society, including organisations and individuals who are interested in  incorporating tech and data in a way that strengthens their work​​.
  3. Language Skills: Excellent language skills in English. 
    1. For the Latin America role we require fluency in at least one widely spoken language in the region (Spanish or Portuguese).  
    2. For the associate in Sub Saharan Africa there is no additional language requirement, though we will give preference to those who have some language abilities in French or Swahili.
