A2L/A2 Private Sector Development Advisor (Staff Appointed In Country)
The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK’s fight against global poverty, delivering aid to those in need all over the world. Since 1997, our passionate team has helped more than 250 million people lift themselves from poverty and 40 million more children to attend primary school. But there is still much to do.
This is a great opportunity to join one DFID’s largest country programme in the world as a Private Sector Development Adviser. Ethiopia has more potential to structurally transform than any other DFID country in Africa. Emerging market investors see Ethiopia as the new destination of choice for garments in Africa.
The UK’s vision is that by 2024 Ethiopia is transforming into a stable, industrialised, resilient, more inclusive country, able to self-finance its way out of poverty and harness the potential of its youth. DFID will contribute to this through a portfolio of programmes which aim to significantly raise standards in education, family planning, water and sanitation. We will invest in Ethiopia’s economic development through improving land governance to support improvements in agricultural productivity, supporting the operationalisation of industrial parks including driving up the quality of jobs, the generation of jobs (for Ethiopians and refugees) and better incomes, and through catalysing new investment. Underpinning all of this, we will support Ethiopia to significantly increase its tax base, as the main means of financing development in the coming years and helping the country to stand on its own two feet.
The post is located in the Jobs Pillar of the Economic Development Team. It will work alongside other PSD advisers, programme managers and economists to implement this agenda. The post holder will also be asked to provide insights and advice across DFID Ethiopia on private sector development issues. The recruitment board will determine the appropriate level of entry for the successful candidate based on their demonstration of core and technical competencies.
The focus of DFID’s Private Sector Development Advisory Cadre is to support developing countries to develop through the provision of advice and programmes on:
policies, laws and regulations needed to enable private sector-led growth
fair and efficient administration of private-sector regulation and legislation
the most effective ways to facilitate pro-poor responses by the private sector, in particular through generating increased pro-development investment, and job creation
catalysing private investment where markets are failing to do so.
We are looking for an experienced, dynamic and motivated person. In this role, you will have the opportunity to lead a range of exciting policy and programme agendas, in two or three areas such as land governance, agriculture, market systems, industrialisation, financial sector reform, investment climate reform and urbanisation. All of this work is done at both the federal and regional levels. In addition, you will work closely with and support team members on other priority technical areas. Given the huge role of the Ethiopian government in the market, this role is as much about influencing and engaging with the government as it is about the close partnership with the private sector. Recent changes in policy, suggest that over the next few years the private sector will be given more space to operate and you will be at the cutting edge of supporting this.
Lead Adviser on one or two programmes or components, gradually transitioning to becoming the Senior Responsible Officer
Ensure that programmes are delivered in-line with DFID’s objectives as set out in the programme’s Business Case and Delivery Plan and compliant with DFID’s policies and rules.
Working as required to design, procure, oversee implementation of and/ or close down programme. This will include writing business cases, annual reviews and project completion reviews. This work will need to be done in close collaboration with programme management staff and a range of cross-cutting advisers (Social Development, Results and Evaluations, Economists, Governance, Conflict, etc)
Take responsibility for the financial management of programmes in line with DFID rules, ensuring that forecasts are up to date, variances can be explained and deadlines are being met.
Engage with delivery partners, Government partners, communities, and other stakeholders to ensure changing local contexts drive delivery decisions and create a safe environment based on trust for constructive working relationships.
Put in place coordination mechanisms to ensure alignment with other relevant programmes.
Provide quality, tailored and demand-driven technical support to the team on selected private sector development issues within the Economic Development team and more broadly in the office
Drive DFID Ethiopia’s thinking on a number of agreed technical areas. There will be opportunities to link closely with central policy and programme teams. You will also support team members on other priority areas such as industrialisation, financial sector reform, investments, infrastructure, trade, energy and others.
You will work with other DFID Ethiopia colleagues to support thinking and action on how private sector approaches can be adopted to DFID’s other priority work areas such as water and sanitation, health and refugee livelihoods.
You will support the UK Government’s prosperity pillar, working closely with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Department for International Trade (DIT) to drive forward our strategy. You will collaborate actively with the UK Government’s Development Financial Institution (DFI) CDC. You will develop a thorough understanding of and relationships with the UK and other investors in Ethiopia.

People in Need is a non-governmental, non-profit organization founded on the ideals of humanism, freedom, equality, and solidarity. We consider human dignity and freedom to be fundamental values. We believe that people anywhere in the world should have the right to make decisions about their lives and to share the rights expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The People in Need organization was established in 1992 by a group of Czech war correspondents who were no longer satisfied with merely relaying information about ongoing conflicts and began sending out aid. It gradually became established as a professional humanitarian organization striving to provide aid in troubled regions and support adherence to human rights around the world.
Throughout our over 25 years of its existence, People in Need has become one of the biggest non-profit organizations in Central Europe. In addition to humanitarian aid and human rights, it now also targets education and helps people living in social exclusion.
We are part of Alliance 2015, a strategic network of seven European non-governmental organizations engaged in humanitarian aid and development projects. This collaboration increases effectiveness, both in working in the target countries and in campaigns aimed at influencing the attitudes of politicians and the general public in Europe. In our over 16 years of operation in Ethiopia, has focused on projects in five main areas of interest: Education and Social Protection, Environment, Livelihood and Agriculture, Water, sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Emergency programs.
