Who we are:
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire by marketing affordable products and services that range from mosquito nets to contraceptives to HIV testing.
There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds – from the medical industry to the music business – all with unique skills we bring to the job.
PSI seeks a communications officer to generate ongoing strategic communications activities to create buzz around the exciting Adolescents 360 project, a project that addresses adolescent girls’ sexual and reproductive health in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania, as well as PSI’s youth work in general.
With the generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), PSI is implementing Adolescents 360, an innovative investment with a consortium of partners including the Society for Family Health/Nigeria (SFH/Nigeria), Triggerise, the Center on the Developing Adolescent from the University of California, Berkeley, and IDEO.org. The project is working with adolescents, young people, parents, community members, providers, and policy makers in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania to design scalable, cost-effective models aimed at increasing voluntary, modern contraceptive use among adolescent girls aged 15-19. The project is high profile and considered to be both Gates’ and CIFF’s “flagship” adolescent investments—communications activities need to live up to (and create) global excitement.
We seek a creative, independent and self-motivated Communications Associate with keen editorial judgement, top-notch writing and storytelling skills, and knowledge of the Sexual and Reproductive Health community of practice. PSI needs a do-er who can get their bearings quickly and go crazy helping A360 achieve its goal of sharing and inspiring transformational programming with both style and substance.
Experience with multi-country projects and/or communications for adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health programs is a plus, but not necessary.
