Marie Stopes International (MSI) is searching for an experienced and talented Business Development expert to join us as a Regional New Business Development Manager (Africa). The post holder will become part of the MSI New Business Development Team (NBD), whose primary goal is to increase and diversify funding for the organisation through institutional donors that directly impacts our ability to support and serve our clients across 43 countries.
The post will be based in Africa, ideally out of Nairobi (negotiable) and responsible for business development/fund-raising on behalf of MSI country programmes. The ideal candidate will bring experience within a global NGO with significant institutional funding; knowledge of complex bidding processes; excellent networking and relationship-building skills; experience of business development for US NGO’s is desirable but not essential, as is experience within reproductive healthcare.
Internally, the post holder will be required to have strong relationships with the Country Directors for their region and the International Programmes Department based in London, therefore a strong knowledge of programme operations are key to the success of the role internally.
Excellent financial acumen and writing skills are essential for the role and will be assessed during the interview process. The position will suit an individual that wishes to work as part of a high performing team that are results oriented and dedicated to our mission of ‘children by choice not chance’. The position will be geographically separate from the NBD team which is regionalised; therefore the ability to work autonomously without close management is essential.
