Job title: Chief of Party, Sanitation Service Delivery
Department: West and Central Africa

Reports to the Regional Director, West and Central Africa

Who we are

We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire by marketing affordable products and services that range from mosquito nets to contraceptives to HIV testing.

There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.

Join us!

PSI seeks an experienced Chief of Party (COP) to lead implementation of its USAID-funded Sanitation Service Delivery Project (SSD) in West Africa. Currently half way through the project, SSD is a 5-year urban sanitation program in Ghana, Benin, and Cote d’Ivoire. The project aims to increase access to safely managed sanitation through market-based approaches and to share learning with the region on market-based approaches to increasing sanitation access. The project’s approach includes stimulating demand and improving supply of high-quality, affordable sanitation products and services, primarily through engagement, coordination, and capacity building of private sector actors.

The COP should have significant leadership, management and international development experience; experience successfully collaborating with private sector, NGO, and government partners; strong interest in market-based approaches to development; and a demonstrated track record of delivering programmatic results. This position will be based in either Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire or Cotonou, Benin, and will oversee the project in all three countries. He/she will report to the Regional Director for West and Central Africa.
