As a key tool, targeted, tactical and influential communication helps to drive the impact of our programmes, enable policy and practice changes that help to fundamentally change the shape of Africa’s financial markets for the benefit of all. It also positions us as a trusted counterpart, giving us the license to operate in the spaces where change happens, as a thought-leader but also a world-class delivery partner.

We are seeking to hire a Director of Communications & Engagement who will play an essential role in ensuring effective two-way communication between us and our stakeholders, especially with the FCDO. The Director of Communications & Engagement will lead FSD Africa in exploring the ways in which achievement of our strategic goals is dependent upon influencing others towards changed mindsets and behaviours; facilitating a collaborative process to develop a Communications & Engagement Plan.

He/she will lead a team of communications specialists to implement the plan, and to review lessons learned so that our capacity to leverage change through communication is continually enhanced. In addition, the Director of Communications & Engagement will make an important contribution to the development and evolution of FSD Africa’s strategic plan; ensuring that we are responsive to the changing requirements of key stakeholders and help to develop and demonstrate a compelling value proposition for our development partners.
