We are at the forefront of the fields in which we work and have an outstanding reputation for delivering results, even in very challenging situations.
                 
Our Infrastructure and Climate Change Practice is growing. Fast. We need a strong Senior Manager to join us. Reporting directly to the Practice Director, we’re looking for someone out of the ordinary, who likes variety and can adapt to a challenge. This particular role is high-profile and based primarily in Africa, leading a multi-million pound power sector reform project.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Overall delivery of the power sector reform project
  • Managing the project team and consultants
  • Ensuring that outputs are delivered as required by the project Terms of Reference and/or activity plans subsequently agreed
  • Working with the project technical teams and the Project Director to ensure that work is delivered to a technical standard that fully meets client requirements
  • Assisting in the preparation and editing of reports and other deliverables
  • Managing contractual relationships with sub-contractors and associates
  • Managing the relationship between ASI, the beneficial client and the donor agency
  • Overseeing project logistics and domestic arrangements
  • Ensuring effective financial management of projects
  • Resolving disputes

In addition to the specific role described above, Senior Managers play a fundamental role in our operating model, managing the technical and financial performance of projects, as well as leading business development.

This involves developing a clear strategy to consolidate and develop our growing team, including:

  • Mapping actors and opportunities in the climate sector
  • Identifying target sectors and competitive advantages for the Practice
  • Building a strong team of Associates
  • Writing winning proposals with little assistance, for key donors such as DFID, AusAid and the World Bank
