Who we are
With over 50 years of experience, working in over 60 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door. We are working to fix market failures, shape future health markets and shift policy and funding to better support consumer empowered healthcare.
There are over 7,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurial development professionals with a wide range of backgrounds, experience, and unique skills that we bring to the critically important work that we do.
Association Camerounaise de Marketing Social (ACMS) is PSI’s local affiliate in Cameroon. It is a complex organization with a diverse donor base and a wide range of products and interventions. Donors include USAID, the German government, UNITAID, private foundations and other international donors. Current health areas include HIV prevention and testing, reproductive health and malaria service delivery.
The Deputy Country Representative (DCR) will oversee all aspects of ACMS, in close coordination with the CR. The DCR will focus on financial and internal controls, risk reduction, coordination of finance and program functions and program delivery. The DCR will assist in representing PSI to government, key stakeholders and donors; supervise staff; ensure contract compliance; manage financial, administrative and logistical resources; prepare, monitor and oversee budgets, marketing plans and work plans.
We are looking for a Deputy Country Representative (DCR) based in Yaounde, Cameroon to assist the CR in assuring quality programmatic and financial management. The DCR should have significant management and international experience with international donors, an interest in private sector approaches to development, French language skills, and be capable of managing a diverse staff. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated ability to lead finance and program teams and to maintain excellent partnerships with donors, the government and other key stakeholders. We are looking for someone with a proven track record of delivering results in multi-million-dollar field offices and fast paced environments under challenging conditions. ACMS’ program is highly impactful and highly rewarding for those who thrive when given a management challenge. The DCR will report to the Country Representative, PSI/ACMS.
Sound like you? Read on.
The DCR will assume strategic, programmatic and operational management and oversight of ACMS in coordination with the CR. The DCR will be responsible for achieving a high level of project performance while assuring compliance with regulations across a range of donors, applying financial/administrative best practices. Specific tasks are:
Program Planning and Execution
Financial and Internal Controls
Capacity-building and Management
New Business Development
Fulfill other management functions as required by the Country Representative.
The candidate we hire will embody PSI’s values:
Measurement:You use hard evidence to make decisions and guide your work. You set clear goalposts in advance and explain clearly if you need to move them.
Pragmatism:You’ll strive to deliver the best possible result with the resources available. You won’t be paralyzed by a need to make things perfect.
Honesty:You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings – it’s the only way you’ll learn and improve.
Collaboration:You’ll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters, and in our country offices – if you try to do it all yourself, you won’t succeed.
Trust:You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt
Commitment:You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin.
