Water For People - Country Coordinator India - Position Open

Great job at one of my favorite organizations:

Country Coordinator – Water For People–India

Water For People is looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic leader for their programme in India. Based in Kolkata and managing a small staff team of ten, you will be responsible for a programme of over $1M and growing, with partnerships in 5 districts of West Bengal. Water For People is looking for someone who can build on the work of the last five years during which time innovative approaches have been modelled and continue to be developed in rural water supply maintenance, sanitation with zero subsidy, and school sanitation development. Your job will be to continue to drive innovation, but equally important to influence the sector (rural and urban) in finding ways of making government and private funds work more effectively in the pursuit of sustainable solutions for the poor. In West Bengal, we have a reputation to build on, while our contribution at national level is waiting for you to define. Water For People will provide a competitive package for the right person, but your motivation will be as much about wanting an opportunity to innovate and shape programmes in ways that you feel can provide lasting solutions, as it is about the financial rewards. Minimum of 10 years of development and management experience required.
