  • Managing all aspects of proposal development by working with field and headquarters staff on program design, proposal writing and (on occasion) cost proposal development
  • Traveling to provide technical assistance to the field programs as needed for proposal development/capacity building
  • Coordinating efforts between PSI and partner organizations on specific proposals
  • Directing the development and maintenance of information required for responding to proposals, including maintaining and updating capability statements, descriptions of technical areas of competence/focus, project write-ups, PPRs, management and mobilization plans, graphics, etc
  • Expanding the capabilities of PSI staff to participate in technical and cost proposals and other business development efforts through mentoring and direct training
  • Collaborating with senior management to identify and strategize on new business opportunities
  • Managing relationships for a portfolio of private donors (which may include proposal writing, report writing, ongoing communications and meetings, etc.)
  • Researching and writing briefs for PSI staff on issues related to New Business Development (e.g. donor and partner organization profiles)
  • Contributing to the continuous improvement of PSI's systems for identifying, tracking, and pursuing new business opportunities, developing proposals and budgets, and managing institutional knowledge

  • Relevant Master's degree (MBA, MPA, MPH, etc)
  • 5+ years of experience related to international development (international health preferred)
  • 3 years of demonstrated NBD experience
  • Excellent diplomatic, negotiating and interpersonal communication capability
  • Outstanding English writing skills
  • Developing country work experience and foreign language skills (esp. Spanish or French) strongly preferred.
The position requires the ability to work gracefully under pressure and support our new business development efforts in collaboration with PSI managers and partner organizations.  The ideal candidate will possess a professional demeanor, sound judgment, and commitment to international development.  The ideal candidate will also exhibit the ability to work independently, with superior organizational skills and attention to detail.  Travel may be necessary.
