About EAP
Engineers Against Poverty (EAP) is a leader in infrastructure and international development with strong links with development agencies, government and industry. We develop research, policy and practice in infrastructure investment, labour standards, climate change, transparency and accountability and local content in line with our mission to help reduce and eventually eliminate poverty.
Job purpose:
EAP is seeking a self-motivated Programme Manager to help deliver quality results with its growing portfolio of programmes.
Across the programmes you oversee, you’ll be responsible for coordinating their successful delivery of quality results.  Initially you will focus on an anti-corruption programme funded by the US Government and EAP’s contribution towards FCDO’s Green Cities and Infrastructure programme. You will work with EAP’s senior leadership and its advisors, project partners and beneficiaries, funders and other stakeholders to maximise positive impact. You’ll strengthen EAP’s programmes by managing specific budgets, KPIs, project plans, sub-grants and monitoring and evaluation efforts using established systems.
The programmes and projects you will work on will vary and evolve over time, as we strengthen donor and client relationships together. You’ll also have a role in shaping our future work, contributing to business development by coordinating grant proposals, commercial bids and strategic partnerships. You will also help to organise board meetings and international workshops.
Across all our programmes, professional communication, branding of EAP and stakeholder (new) engagement and management is key. Programme delivery is rarely linear so you must be comfortable in rapidly evolving and dynamic environments.
The appointee will also take on for the same role for CoST, the Infrastructure Transparency Initiative – a transparency and accountability programme which operates in 20 countries and for which EAP hosts its International Secretariat.
You will be working remotely with in-person team meetings usually held in London 4 to 5 times a year. We are open to candidates living outside of the UK.
