GiveDirectly (GD) provides cash grants directly to people living in extreme poverty. GD hasraised over $800M since launching in 2011, delivered cash to more than 1.2 million recipients, and launched offices in 11 countries. We’re continuing expansion across the Global South. Over the past decade, GD has also supported large-scale, experimental research, expanding the evidence that cash has a positive short and long-term impact on recipients. As a result, GD has been celebrated as one of the most innovative non-profit companies by Fast Company, while the growing cash transfer movement (and GD’s leading role within it) has been featured in the New York Times Magazine, This American Life, Foreign Affairs, and The Economist.
Across our global offices, our culture is candid, analytical, non-hierarchical, and agile. We work alongside 750+ individuals who come from 21 different countries and speak 69 different languages. Team members at GiveDirectly attest that diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just buzzwords, but a fundamental part of our culture and values. We actively seek to recruit individuals from the communities we serve and use DEI as a lens in our hiring practices, programs, and initiatives. Our goal is to maintain a workplace where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work, and feel valued and respected for who they are. We continue to grapple with balancing inclusivity of all cultures and experiences while maintaining cohesion in our values. While there is much that we are still learning, we take care of one another, have fun, as well as provide flexible working hours wherever possible.
We are proud to be an equal-opportunity employer, and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or any other status protected by law.
As GiveDirectly expands our work in Sofala province and beyond, the Senior Manager will work closely with the Country Director in leading the design and implementation of our cash transfer programs in Mozambique. They will also be responsible for leading our relatively large field team and setting a vision for our projects.
Qualities we’re hiring for:
GiveDirectly aims to reshape international giving. They provide an end-to-end platform that enables funders to provide direct cash transfers to the extreme poor. GiveDirectly are among the fastest growing international development non-profits and are recipients of a Google Global Impact Award and a top rating from GiveWell.
Their unorthodox approach - allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose how to invest - has driven debate both in press and policy circles. Give Directly is also known for their extensive integration of technology into field processes; their quantitative approach to performance measurement; and a commitment to rigorous, independent, experimental evaluation of impact, with one Randomised Controlled Trial completed and multiple additional RCTs in progress.
