Partnership Officer, Inclusive Economies
Location: Ottawa, ON
IDRC’s Inclusive Economies Program Area supports knowledge, innovation, and solutions that help build more prosperous, just, and resilient societies. Support for research in sectors such as health, economics, labour, governance, and law generates evidence for equality and diversity, access to basic rights and services, and democratic solutions to development challenges.
Through partnerships, IDRC increases resources available for the generation of knowledge and solutions that address the needs of developing countries. As a Partnership Officer, reporting to the IE Director, you will support partnership and resource mobilization initiatives; and provide advice in developing strategies and processes as well as initiating and enhancing partnership relationships with multilateral and bilateral development institutions, foundations and the private sector. You will provide support in compiling specific donor information, proposal writing, negotiations with partners, budget preparation, and reviewing donor agreements. Also, you will develop, manage and monitor small research projects that relate to partnerships and working alongside the private sector.
