This is an opportunity to be part of a diverse and inclusive team that strives for excellence and empowers communities in Madagascar. WaterAid is committed to creating a culture where everyone can thrive and contribute to our mission of making clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere.

WaterAid is an exciting organization that aims to improve access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services for rural households. We are currently implementing the RANO MAHARITRA project, a 5-year initiative funded by the USAID. The project is being carried out in collaboration with the government of Madagascar and various experts, with the aim of overcoming obstacles to gender equality, social inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (DEIA).

The role of the Knowledge Management Specialist is to lead and support the collection, documentation, and dissemination of lessons learned and project results to the broader WASH sector. The specialist will play a crucial role in capitalizing on these achievements and will provide leadership to ensure the quality of capacity-building processes implemented by all project stakeholders.

Job requirements include a minimum Master's degree in economics, institutional politics, political science, social sciences, or development planning from a recognized university, or professional qualifications in civil engineering, water and sanitation, environmental health, or equivalent. At least 5 years of experience in capacity building and targeted training and partnership with the government (national, CTD, and STD) and public-private partnerships (PPP) is required. Experience in the WASH sector, familiarity with various stakeholders, partnership management, and project management funded by USAID is also necessary.

Benefits of working with us include being part of an organization that is passionately committed to being a place where everyone is welcome, respected, included, and empowered to give their best. We represent and celebrate the diversity of our staff, our partners, and all the people we work with, in order to create a culture where everyone can reach their full potential.
