  • Engage the NGIN network and undertake outreach to new stakeholders to support NGIN’s cross-sectoral communities of practice
  • Identify opportunities to bring practitioners and stakeholders across multiple fields together for peer-to-peer learning and designing innovations
  • Actively engage stakeholders in geographies where NGIN is not present to introduce NGIN, explore opportunities for collaboration, and expand the NGIN network
  • Support existing projects and initiatives by designing effective ways to share insights and communicate learnings with varied audience such as practitioners, policy makers, donors, etc.

You are an excellent writer and communicator with the ability to deliver complex insights to a variety of audiences.
You have the capacity to rapidly acquire new knowledge, the organizational and time management skills to balance multiple projects concurrently, and the ability to work as member of a team in a low- structure environment.
Finally, you may have a degree in economic development, economics or urban planning/policy or you may have come into the field of inclusive economic development through lived experience.
