Senior Partnerships Manager Job Vacancy at Girl Effect Tanzania | Deadline: 18th January, 2019

Position: Senior Partnerships Manager

Who We Are
Girl Effect builds youth brands and mobile platforms to empower girls to change their lives
We’re a creative non-profit empowering girls to change their lives. Started by the Nike Foundation, we are experts in media, mobile, brand and international development: a unique mix of skills that we use to solve global problems in a different way.

We work across the world in places where girls are marginalised and vulnerable. We create youth brands and mobile platforms for young people in ways they love and interact with. We deliver these through the media and mobile tech they use every day – from apps that build skills, to TV dramas that explore vital issues, to magazines written by girls.

Context of the Role
Tanzania is one of Girl Effect’s four priority markets and we are in the process of expanding our work in country. In partnership with the Vodafone Foundation, we are developing a new youth brand for Tanzania to deliver change for girls through digital products, media platforms and new partnerships. We’re looking for an experienced Senior Partnerships Manager to join our new country office in Tanzania to lead our partnerships strategy in country, including with government.

What You’ll Do
• Develop and implement our Tanzania partnership strategy, networking extensively with multiple stakeholders, including NGOs, service providers and the government of Tanzania
• Deliver a great experience to our partners when working with our organisation – you will represent Girl Effect and our brand with multiple stakeholders in Tanzania and be our partners’ key point of contact
• Forecast, track and report on project and partnership activities for Girl Effect teams in Tanzania and globally, as well as keeping donors up-to-date with the impact of our work
• Keep abreast of changes in local, national and the global policy and programme arena which have implications for Girl Effect Tanzania
• Lead the development and maintenance products for partnerships – for example, toolkits, for use by product teams
• Identify future fund mobilisation opportunities and support with the writing of new business proposals
• Effectively capture, track and record all approaches, meetings, contacts, correspondence and agreements on the Partnerships Portal, and other communications channels, and ensure that other team members are brought in to conversations where necessary
• Support the Country Lead with the establishment of a new office, including establishing systems and processes to ensure smooth delivery, growth and sustainability of our in-country work

Who You Are
• You have an extensive network of contacts within Tanzania’s private sector, development sector and senior government officials
• You’re a proactive team player who actively goes out to identify opportunities
• You’re driven and able to deliver against key timelines and deadlines, through prioritisation and organisation
• You enjoy taking the initiative and making decisions as part of a complex and varied workload
• You can demonstrate a commitment to realising the potential of girls and to the vision and values of Girl Effect
• You’re a confident public speaker who will be able to externally represent the work we do with passion and energy
• You’re fluent in Kiswahili and English, with an extremely high level of written English
• You’re educated to degree level (minimum), ideally within a relevant field of expertise
• You’re willing and able to travel within Tanzania, as required

What Else You Should Know
As we continue to scale and grow – we are hugely ambitious for our future and we are looking for people who are driven by this to change the world for girls.

Our teams are a diverse mix across sectors (non-profit and commercial) and specialisms (from Brand and Creative through to Gender and Insight). You’ll learn and grow in an environment that will challenge you to think and work with a fresh perspective.

At Girl Effect, you can expect to work somewhere where you will be stretched and developed in your role, a place where you can build your career and work with talented, engaged people committed to our cause to create a lasting impact.
