Project Concern International (PCI)

Project Concern International (PCI) is looking for a highly qualified facilitator to work with our technical teams to design PCI’s three year strategy. The strategic planning process includes a 3-day workshop in Washington, DC January 16 – 19, 2018 and will include our senior technical directors in health, food/nutrition/livelihood security (FNLS), humanitarian assistance and resilience, and female empowerment/gender equity. Each technical area strategy will need further refinement while also building toward a comprehensive organizational strategy to help transform the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable people to create vital, healthy lives for their families and communities now and into the future. The facilitator/consultant needs to be able to facilitate a dynamic process with a group of senior development professionals from a variety of technical backgrounds. The group will also lay out a framework of action for organizational input, finalization and launching of the strategy. And finally, the facilitator will work with the team to lay out very clear priorities for the operationalization of the strategy in years 1 – 3.

The facilitator/consultant must have demonstrated experience facilitating dynamic strategic planning processes across a variety of development disciplines and at senior level. S/he needs to create the agenda in partnership with PCI’s Sr. VP for Programs and VP for Technical Leadership and Support, and demonstrate how the meeting will be managed/choreographed, including group activities, presentations and other interactive methodologies for productive group discussion and decision making. S/he must speak and write English fluently and be available to engage with the group prior to the retreat to develop the agenda for the 3-day meeting. S/he will also be responsible for reporting out on the meeting and developing a plan of action for next steps.
