What You Will Do and How You Will Grow

We are looking for a project manager with a strong profile in global development, excellent analytical skills and entrepreneurial mindset that will help to support, grow and implement projects spanning across a range of areas and clients, such as governments, ministries, international corporations, global foundations and civil society initiatives.

As a project manager, you lead all phases of project work; from conceptualization and scoping to project execution and follow-up. From the beginning, you will get a large responsibility for planning and executing on our projects, including guiding a team of consultants and referring to global management. As a project manager, you will oversee multiple workstreams simultaneously and work closely with colleagues on all levels and directly with our clients and partners nationally and internationally.

As our projects span across thematic and geographic areas, you should be ready to engage in a variety of workstreams across different projects. Previous project engagements span across designing and facilitating multi-stakeholder convenings in e.g. Singapore, New Delhi, Copenhagen, and San Francisco; producing creative content in print and online to amplify key messages on pressing global development issues; and creating and executing communication strategies for private and public clients. We prioritize your individual learning journey and will carefully nurture your professional growth via mentoring and tailored project work.

Main tasks will include:

  • Lead project teams in problem solving and project execution
  • Manage and plan work streams and coach, manage and support junior team members
  • Lead meeting activities, including presenting messages to experienced audiences
  • Finetuning and quality assessing project deliverables
  • Reporting on project progress and challenges to global management
  • Contributing to the on-going strategic development of Dalberg Media’s project portfolio, including by initiating business development and creating impactful partnerships

Given the close linkages between our projects, you will be exposed to a wide range of focus areas. Consequently, you should be open to and thrive with changing priorities and challenges. Given the shifting nature of most of our work, longer hours can be expected in peak periods.
