Job Title: Inclusive Markets Advisor - Africa

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Closing Date: Monday 4th August 2013

Christian Aid is partnering with others to end poverty in Africa. At the heart of this vision is transformation of the lives of people who live in poverty, empowering them to have a brighter future. 

In 20 countries across the continent, we manage a wide range of programmes that have a positive impact on the lives of millions. And while we’ve achieved some incredible results, there’s still a lot we can do.
Which is why we are looking for a dynamic and highly skilled individual to help drive forward our work on inclusive market development on the continent.

As the Inclusive Markets Advisor Africa, you will operate in three environments.

Firstly, you will support the Africa Division of Christian Aid to develop an effective portfolio of programme and policy work on markets and enterprise.

To do this you will provide technical support to country programme staff, assisting them in programme design, fundraising and partnership development. You will also drive learning and development across the Division.

Secondly, you will support broader thinking and strategy development across CA relating to the development of good programme practice and the integration of market and enterprise development into our approach to resilience.

Lastly the post will have an external facing element, helping CA engage in the right networks, increasing the profile of CA market related work, ensuring we are influenced by current good practise and opening up opportunities for new productive collaborations.

To help make this happen, you will bring a sound background in market and enterprise development, be an excellent communicator with the ability to provide remote technical support and develop cross-organisational relationships and be confident in engaging with external networks and actors.

You will have experience of supporting learning and development, have experience of working via local partners and will understand linkages between climate change, gender and markets.  

Benefits: We value the contribution each person makes to the success of our organisation.

That’s why you can expect a wide range of rewards and benefits and flexibility that will ensure you enjoy a good work/life balance.
