Sanitation jobs at the Gates Foundation - woot woot!

The Gates Foundation has made the big commitment to sanitation we have all been hoping for and are staffing up to prove it:

Search for sanitation and you'll find:
The Director of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene will provide strategic leadership of the WS&H initiative, with a specific focus on non-piped sanitation. The Director will continue to build on the existing strategy and will be responsible for overseeing grant making and grant management, advocacy, people management and reporting of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene portfolio. The Director of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene will participate in the Global Development Leadership Team and contribute to the entire Global Development team through management and cultural leadership and a willingness to share knowledge as appropriate.
Senior Program Officer - Demand-Led Sanitation
The Senior Program Officer (SPO) will play a pivotal leadership role in the WS&H initiative, taking primary responsibility for developing, executing and managing a portfolio of high-impact grants with the goal of replicating at very large scale a sustainable approach to rural sanitation. This approach triggers demand to end open defecation and improve unsafe latrines, trains local entrepreneurs to offer affordable sanitation products and services, and improves the enabling environment supporting these activities. Reporting to the Deputy Director leading the WS&H initiative, the SPO will also contribute to developing the WS&H strategy, enhancing external and internal relationships, improving team effectiveness, and supervising Program Officers and other staff.
And others... let's get some great sanitation people up to Seattle.
