Who we are
We are 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 “PSIers” around the world. We are 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.
Be part of something powerful and different.
Join us!
PSI seeks an energetic and creative candidate to lead field activities for a $30-million four-year investment called Adolescents 360. With the generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), PSI is implementing Adolescents 360 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, IDEO.org, and Ogilvy & Mather Africa.
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. Adolescents 360 will not only generate hundreds of thousands of new users of voluntary modern contraceptives, but will also catalyze a new way of designing high-performing adolescent sexual and reproductive health programs at scale, using a developmentally and anthropologically informed user-centered design process.
We are looking for a Senior Marketing Technical Advisor to help us employ a multi-disciplinary approach that engages youth in designing solutions to increase demand for and access to modern family planning methods. The Senior Marketing Technical Advisor will focus on the development and piloting of interventions designed with young people within the three project countries. The Advisor will have proven ability in marketing discipline and be adept at translating Adolescents 360 approaches and outcomes to a range of internal and external stakeholders. This position will require close coordination and collaboration within the three project countries, donors, partners and with PSI's regional and global marketing teams. The Advisor needs to be a strategic thinker who shows a quick ability to learn, adapt, and apply evolving models and is open to stepping into a position as a marketing thought leader at PSI.
