We are looking for an exceptional individual to join our Strategy & Impact team as the project coordinator for the Americas, under the IMPACT grant funded by Global Affairs Canada.

  • Responsible for monitoring the project cycle in the Americas, including the delivery of the expected outputs and outcomes, and in line with the core team’s guidelines;
  • Coordinate the project’s stakeholders in the Americas in the timely delivery of narrative and financial reports, as well as other accountability-related documents and deliverables, and in line with the core team’s guidelines;
  • Work in close collaboration and ensure ongoing communication with project partners on all aspects of their work; maintain regular communication with the donor on financial and project management at TI-S as well as project implementation at partner level;
  • Produce narrative reports on the project in the Americas, and budget updates as requested;
  • Ensure the project team’s accountability towards line management and donor.

Knowledge, experience and skills:

  • At least five to seven years of continuous project management experience, preferably in highly complex projects;
  • A recognised project management certification is highly valued and a clear advantage;
  • Highly proficient in project management applications a clear advantage;
  • Proficiency in Excel (possibility of being tested at interview stage);
  • Highly developed numeracy skills;
  • IT proficiency;

  • Flexibility and readiness to be thrown off routine with last minute asks, and ability to prioritise as second nature; ability to work under pressure, manage competing priorities and maintain a professional approach;
