About Evidence Action
Our organization was founded in 2013 to address a big gap in the fight against global poverty–many of the most promising interventions are either implemented at a very small scale, or not at all. We set out to address this gap by building programs that would scale evidence-based and cost-effective interventions, leading to significant improvements in quality of life for hundreds of millions of people.
Our model worked. In less than a decade, our two flagship programs, the Deworm the World Initiative and Dispensers for Safe Water, have grown to measurably impact over 280 million people each year. This success is achieved through the dedication and talent of our staff, the hard work of our partners, and the commitment of our supporters.
By 2024, we seek to double our impact. We are strengthening and expanding our existing programs, and working to identify a new generation of evidence-based and cost-effective interventions that we can scale to reach millions more.
Senior Associate, External Relations
Evidence Action has grown quickly over the past few years. As we move into the next phase of organizational growth, the External Relations team is seeking to increase our visibility and recognition with a wider audience, grow and diversify our donor and supporter base, and help shift the development sector towards more evidence-based and cost-effective decision-making.
We are looking for a Senior Associate to provide support across the fundraising, communications, and stakeholder engagement functions within the External Relations team. This person will report directly to the Senior Manager of External Relations, while working closely with other members of the External Relations, Program, and Monitoring, Learning, and Evaluation (MLE) teams based in the USA, multiple countries in Africa and Asia, and Australia.
Evidence Action places high value on personal qualities: responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic. We seek a highly committed and adaptable individual who can deliver quality results within quickly changing circumstances. The ideal candidate:
Main duties and responsibilities
Qualifications, skills, and experience
The successful candidate will be located in Washington D.C., alongside the majority of the External Relations team. However, the office has temporarily moved to remote work during the pandemic, and this role reports directly to the Senior Manager, External Relations, based in Australia. In addition, we work with teams spread across the globe and occasionally have early morning/late night meetings to accommodate multiple time zones. Full-time remote work could therefore be considered for an exceptional candidate.
