About the Education Partnerships Group (EPG):
Incubated within UK education charity, Ark, the Education Partnerships Group (EPG) is an international not-for-profit consultancy that partners with governments to shape and strengthen their education systems. Our vision is that governments in low and middle-income countries are equipped to ensure that every child goes to school and learns. We believe that supporting government to design and implement contextually relevant and evidence-based public policy is the best way to drive sustainable progress towards achieving quality education for all.
We assist governments across three critical stages of the policy process:
- Generating and using research to inform policy
- Supporting the design and development of policy
- Supporting the piloting and scaling of policy reform initiatives
Today, EPG works in five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, and Zambia.
In our work, we prioritise a genuine understanding of context rather than assuming ideas can simply be transplanted from one country to another. We also focus on the system – the roles, responsibilities, and relationships of all the different actors – rather than working on one policy area in isolation.
COVID has demonstrated more than ever the importance of effective education systems capable of coordinating and targeting limited resources through evidence-based approaches for impactful education service delivery. With growing demand for our services, EPG is currently focused on seizing those opportunities to expand our footprint in current programme countries and new geographies.
About the role:
EPG is looking for exceptionally organised, highly motivated and capable Associates, or possibly Senior Associates, with excellent communication and strategic thinking skills to support project management and delivery as well as the coordination of business development and project expansion efforts across EPG’s global education programmes.
The right candidates will be passionate about the role education plays in transforming lives and see this role as an opportunity to support the expansion of EPG’s system-wide approach to supporting governments to plan for and implement reform to improve learning outcomes globally. Depending on the successful candidate’s location, the role will require significant remote working and thus personal initiative and time management will be critical.
- Contribute to individual projects through discrete project management and delivery support – this may include developing and/or updating project work planning, monitoring and budgeting tools, and helping to coordinate policy research, analysis and policy reform processes
- Schedule internal and external meetings – both in person and remotely – attending meetings where required and taking detailed meeting minutes for external circulation
- Contribute to internal monitoring and learning
- Support the programmes and business development teams to cultivate and maintain trusted relationships with potential funders, partners and other stakeholders, including in ministries of education
- Where required, regularly follow up with internal and external stakeholders as required to progress relationship building, concept development and proposals, often working to tight timelines
- Where required, desk-based research and analysis of EPG funding and partnership landscape – maintain a database of contacts and partners
- Input into global partnerships strategies and individual programme-level business development strategies – help coordinate research and planning, track progress and maintain and update documentation as required
- Develop marketing materials, external communications products and support inputs to EPG’s social media as requested.
- A Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences (Law, Public Administration, Economics, Education or related field);
- 2+ years of professional experience;
- Excellent project management skills, including planning, monitoring and reporting;
- Exceptional organisational skills with excellent attention to detail;
- Experience with the professional use of the Microsoft Office Suite (i.e. Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook)
- Strong written communications and presentation skills in English;
- Strong interpersonal skills with a sense of humility and willingness to work with diverse team members, often remotely;
- A commitment to improving education quality for all children;
- Commitment to EPG’s core values
