Head of FSD Network Communications

Closing date

07.10.2020 12:00 pm

The FSD Network is a family of 9 autonomous Financial Sector Deepening, or FSD, programmes operating across Africa.  FSDs work alongside governments, business leaders, non-profit organisations, research institutions, regulators and policymakers to develop more inclusive financial systems.  We believe that financial systems have the potential to play a major role in enabling inclusive growth and ensuring access to basic services while assuring a sustainable future. Guided by the imperatives of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the FSD Network seeks to mould financial systems in a way which works better for the poor across Africa.  We are deeply committed to equity between men and women and supporting the vulnerable and marginalised.

The work of the Network brings together a wide range of stakeholders from the public and private sector, financial services providers, fintechs, civil society, research organisations, and donor and technical partners. Thus, it is necessary for the Network to have a strong and visible identity and capacity to communicate its work well.

On behalf of the FSD Network, we wish to recruit a Head of Network Communications to ensure the visibility and successful implementation of the Network programmes. The ideal candidate will hold a Bachelor’s degree in communications, journalism, public relations, marketing, finance, international relations, social sciences, or any other related field from a recognised university and will have at least 10 years’ experience in a strategic communications role.

The Head of FSD Network Communications will report to the FSD Network Directorate at FSD Africa and will serve the Network.  The role can reside in any country where there is an FSD, not necessarily in Nairobi where FSD Africa’s offices are based.

Applications are welcome until the deadline of 7th October 2020.  Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
