Living Goods launched its Advisory Services Unit in 2012 to dramatically scale its impact through partnerships and influence. Living Goods has since supported six organizations including several leading Global NGOs to adapt “Living Goods-like” business models in other developing countries.   


The Partnerships Manager will be a core member of the Advisory Services team, leading client engagements, and driving business development.  We’re looking for someone with a blend of strong consulting and emerging markets experience who is eager to roll up their sleeves and build this new unit within Living Goods.

  • Excellent quantitative, analytical, problem solving and project management skills;Experience working with culturally diverse teams in developing countries, and preferably in Sub Saharan Africa;
  • Enthusiasm for growing Living Goods impact around the world, including the 30-50% travel that is needed to make that happen;
