UNIQUE APS opportunities in March 2011 - Apply now!
by Robin Farnworth on Fri 28 Jan 2011 11:28:02 AM EST

We are very excited to announce that EWB is seeking exceptional leaders to join our African Programs Staff (APS) in the following positions:

 

With the Agriculture Team (in Ghana and Zambia)

Agricultural Value Chains Team Market Development Field Officer 

Agricultural Value Chains Team Market Development Project Manager

African Business Development Team


With the Malawi Water and Sanitation Team

District Capacity Development and Decentralization Policy Analyst

Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) Leader

 

The detailed job descriptions are outlined in the attached documents.

To apply, go to http://my.ewb.ca/volunteering/applications/. Applications are due on February 7th, 2011.

 

We are recruiting for the Agricultural Value Chains Team  (Ghana, Zambia) for departures starting in March 2011. In this project aimed at removing rural farmers’ barriers to agricultural input access, EWB will be partnering with donors. By becoming a part of the donor chain, The Agricultural Value Chains Team will be able to share field realities and will have the respect and understanding needed to drive change for farmers.

 

We are searching for African Business Development Team members for departures beginning in March 2001. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that have long been neglected by development initiatives are finally getting recognition from Social Investment Funds (SIFs) that have emerged to provide capital investment to these businesses. EWB's African Business Development Team will continue to provide technical assistance to rural African businesses, as EWB has for years, while partnering with SIFs to provide services at scale.

 

We are seeking a leader for Malawi’s leading sanitation initiative, Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) to start in March 2011.  CLTS is an innovative approach, holding open community discussions to confront taboo sanitation behaviors. The change is owned and led by the community itself, with the CLTS team acting as facilitators and encouraging follow-through on community-set goals.

 

We are recruiting a District Capacity Development and Decentralization Policy Analyst to join the Malawi Water and Sanitation team as early as March 2011. Since 1998, Malawi has been undergoing a process of decentralization. This process, meant to increase the districts’ power to provide sustainable and effective services to their constituents, particularly in the water and sanitation sector, has been slow and requires acceleration to improve service delivery. This role is aimed at using understanding of field realities to increase capacity development at the district level and to advise decentralization partners (namely the Malawi-Germany Program for Democratic Decentralization) on policy.

 

For questions or more information please contact projects@ewb.ca or the contact for the position of your interest (listed in the attachment).
