About Us

Adam Smith International is a leading professional services business that delivers real impact, value and lasting change through projects supporting economic growth and government reform internationally.

Our reputation as a global leader has been built on the positive results our projects have achieved in many of the world’s most challenging environments.

Our wide-ranging experience can be grouped into two main areas that contribute to Government Reform and Economic Growth. Government Reform includes Justice, Security and Peace-building, Public Administration Reform, Public Financial Management, Revenue Reform and Education Reform. Economic Growth includes services in Extractive Industries Governance, Infrastructure, Climate Change and Private Sector Development.

We are headquartered in London, with offices in Nairobi, Delhi and Sydney, along with major project offices in many developing countries worldwide. Our projects are funded by a wide range of donor organisations, including the UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID), the World Bank, the Swedish and Danish Government's development agencies Sida and Danida, the European Commission, AusAID, and the Asian Development Bank. In addition, we also work directly for host governments.

 Over more than 20 years, Adam Smith International has implemented some of the most complex solutions in many of the world’s most challenging environments. We apply professional standards, technical know-how and cultural sensitivity to every context. We’re proven to bring the best minds together and are known for turning policies into action. Our work is award-winning, such as the most recent 2011/12 British Expertise Development Project of the Year, Major Project of the Year, Consultancy Project of the Year and Young Consultant of the Year.


About the Programme

Adam Smith International is currently designing and will implement a large five year UK Department for International Development (DFID) private sector development programme in the DRC. The five year programme will apply a “making markets work for the poor (M4P)” approach in developing markets and increasing incomes. The programme will operate in Kinshasa, Katanga, Kasai Occidental, Equator and the Kivus. In addressing market constraints the programme is expected to facilitate systemic change in a range of market systems, including but not limited to agriculture, services and cross-cutting products. It will also be sufficiently flexible to ensure it can focus activities on those sectors in which the programme can influence increased incomes for large numbers of poor people. The programme places gender equity, social inclusion, conflict sensitivity and the protection and promotion of the environment at the forefront of its programming decisions and activities.


About the Role

To support the team’s implementation activities, the MDC will establish a Flexible Facility that will effectively be comprised of unallocated programme funds. The Flexible Facility will be governed by a strict set of “value for money” management guidelines to ensure they are utilised in the most appropriate way.

The Facility Manager will be a full-time employee of the Private Sector Development team within Adam Smith International, working on-site in DRC. The key role of the Facility Manager is to provide the operational leadership for the delivery of the Facility fund. The Facility Manager will help to manage the intervention approvals process, including budget management, and will manage the process of defining, securing and mobilising resources for approved interventions.


About You

Candidates for the Flexible Facility Manager position will be expected to possess the following:

  • Fluency in English and French
  • Prior experience of working in francophone Africa.
  • Strong leadership experience with three to five years’ experience in private sector development or management consulting.
  • Experience in project and financial management.
  • Expertise in stakeholder engagement.
