Overview of the role
We are looking for a Programme Partnerships Officer who is passionate about international development and understands BRAC’s values. Working within a small team, the objective of the role is to improve the quality of our grant management and reporting, by ensuring that internal information on all our projects is up to date and accurate, enabling the provision of timely information to donors. Strong candidates will be able to draw on relevant experience in order to quickly become effective. The role requires excellent attention to detail, communication and writing skills.
In 2019 BRAC global-wide developed a new global strategy and formed a new Global Board to lead this strategy. The strategy builds on the experience, results and relationships BRAC has built over the last close to fifty years, aiming to deliver more innovation in its programmes and impact the lives of at least 250 million people by 2030. The Programme Partnerships Officer will play an important role in strengthening our partnerships with key donors by providing them with timely and high quality reports.

These include programmes in education, healthcare, microfinance, girls’ empowerment, agriculture, human and legal rights, social enterprises, a bank, a university, and the one of the world’s largest mobile money platforms.
The UK office supports BRAC’s development work around the world through fundraising, contract management and donor relationship management. We also provide specific expertise in the areas of inclusive business approaches, innovative financial tools, private sector partnerships, and disability inclusion. BRAC UK plays a key role in BRAC’s work engaging with and influencing policy makers and practitioners to tackle extreme poverty.
