Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. At PSI, we believe that extreme poverty can be eradicated in our lifetime only by breaking the traditional development model. Together with our partners, we develop and test breakthrough concepts that actually have the potential to go to scale and make it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives.
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 has operated in Haiti as a local NGO for more than 25 years, having launched products ranging from condoms to contraceptives, and ORS to safe water. In line with its institutional development vision, PSI Haiti has deepened its national roots, changing its name to reflect a more local entity now called Organisation Haitienne de Marketing Social pour la Santé(OHMaSS), and developing a more diverse board. Thanks to a dedicated team of 80+ staff members, PSI manages various projects funded by multiple donors in different health areas.
PSI seeks qualified candidates for a Sanitation Technical Advisor position within OHMaSS.
This position is expected to lead the design and execution of strategies, approaches and tools to strengthen the market for sanitation products and services, as part of the anticipated USAID WASH project. The sanitation technical advisor will oversee a team of specialists to ensure that the project sanitation activities are technically sound and achieve the project’s objectives in facilitating access to, and use of, toilets and fecal sludge management services. This involves developing strategic partnerships with public and private sector actors to improve the enabling environment, generate demand, and strengthen the supply chain for delivering services. This innovative sanitation portfolio includes establishment of commercially viable, scalable, and sustainable business models to address sanitation needs in Haiti.
This position will work in a complex space of entrepreneurs, established enterprises, service providers, finance institutions, government institutions, NGO partners, local authorities and consumers to achieve both business sustainability and health outcomes. This position requires technical expertise in sanitation, as well as business, leadership, management, and coordination skills.
Bottom line: we are looking for someone who can spearhead the sanitation portfolio of OHMaSS and establish strong partnerships with public and private actors to help transform the sanitation market in both urban and rural settings. This full-time position is based in Port-au-Prince and will report to the Director of Programs of OHMaSS. The position will require up to 30% travel to visit market players and partners in the field.
