DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

WHO YOU ARE

You bring with you an extensive history (at least 7 years) of successfully implementing development strategy. Your ability to think outside the box will lead you to discover non-traditional funding sources and unexpected intersections between GNG and other entities. Your advanced research skills allow you to bring an added level of depth and understanding that will give GNG an edge on the competition when pursuing funding opportunities. Your writing is grammatically impeccable, precise, persuasive, and a general pleasure to read. You enjoy acting as a thought-partner and leading the process of transforming spoken ideas into written proposals. You are able to foresee the needs of any development project and provide advance notice to colleagues from whom you will need information and support. You are a master of planning your schedule around multiple projects and deadlines, but will quickly and willingly adjust as necessary. You recognize that some of the best opportunities arise unexpectedly and thrive on rapidly pushing through to a deadline.

PROGRAM COORDINATOR ( AMMAN, JORDAN)

 

WHO YOU ARE

You are interested in cross-cultural connections, and may even have personal experiences that draw you to our mission. You have 3-5 years’ prior work experience, much of which has been in the formal or informal education sector. You thrive working in non-traditional work situations and enjoy collaborating with diverse groups of people in local and international settings. You understand that working in an international office requires flexibility in work hours to accommodate time zone differences. In your work, you are organized, but also leave room for adaptability, as you know things don’t always turn out the way that you planned. As a result, you choose to be a proactive problem solver, and value solutions over complaints. You respect guidance and experience but are equally excited to work in an environment that values independence and creativity. You are fluent in both Arabic and English, and proudly hold a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field. You are a global nomad.
