The fact that 1 in 10 people in the world today don't have clean water is an outrage, and we need you to help change that. We're the #1 international nonprofit exclusively focused on clean water, hygiene and sanitation, and there are 650 million reasons we do what we do. That daunting figure is the number of men, women and children who have yet to see, taste and enjoy safe clean water.
WaterAid's office in New York City needs an organized and passionate Program Development Officer to join the Strategic Partnerships Team and raise restricted funds in support of WaterAid's Latin America & Caribbean Region programs (Colombia, Nicaragua and LAC Region). The Strategic Partnerships team is responsible for the successful development and submission of funding proposals and reports to private, large family and corporate foundations and the US Government, as well as providing management of those restricted funds to ensure delivery on grants, contracts and awards.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to grow professionally and personally through working both independently and as part of a close-knit, dedicated team. Not only will you be working with the world's leading NGO dedicated to water, sanitation and hygiene education, you'll be doing your part to stop a killer that steals more lives than malaria and AIDS combined.
Purpose: As part of WaterAid America's (WAA) Strategic Partnerships Team, the Program Development Officer (PDO) - Asia is responsible for developing and submitting funding proposals and reports to private, large family and corporate foundations in support of WaterAid's Asia Programs, as well as managing these restricted funds to ensure delivery on grants, contracts and awards.
Collaborating closely with WaterAid Country Program staff in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and the South Asia Region, the PDO supports the management and delivery of grants through the institutional funding cycle (proposal, award, implementation and reporting).
