JOB DESCRIPTION

Consulting at Acasus

We work in small teams which support the most senior officials in government (typically at ministerial or prime-ministerial level) to drive rapid reforms. Much of our day-to-day work involves helping officials to:

  • Plan and develop strategies

  • Monitor progress

  • Use data and other information

  • Build capacity and skills throughout the system

  • Improve coordination and cooperation

  • Solve problems and challenges as they arise

  • Access international evidence and lessons about what works

Our project teams include a mix of experienced consultants from leading international consultancies (McKinsey, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger and others) and highly talented locally-hired staff. Our success depends on being able to attract good people and provide them with high quality professional development.

Context & Impact

Acasus has been engaging in health and education reforms since 2013. The Pakistan team achieved the fastest increase in vaccination coverage ever recorded — improving coverage of life-saving child vaccines across the Punjab province from around 50% to 90% in just two years. In Peru the team aided the Ministry of Education with crucial reforms to refine teacher performance and consequently helped increase students’ academic results. Our expanding team in the Democratic Republic of Congo is working hand in hand with the Ministry of Health to improve nationwide availability of basic vaccines; results are already proving very positive.

Following the success of our programmes in Pakistan and DRC we have been asked by an international organization to replicate our work model across multiple countries in Africa and Asia. Our work in Chad will involve supporting officials at central and provincial levels to implement a customised version of our reform model. This model will involve using technology and data to help managers and leaders take rapid action to improve healthcare delivery throughout Chad. We have undertaken scoping visits and there is already a very high level of excitement and engagement around this project.

Role​ in Brief

You will support officials at federal and regional level to implement the reforms based on our previously successful model. This implementation uses technology and data to help managers and leaders take rapid action to improve health outcomes by providing better public services.

This opportunity comes with a great deal of autonomy and the day-to-day tasks will involve working with key senior government health officials, and international partners, to dramatically improve health outcomes for children. You will design and implement new systems for improving vaccination coverage across Chad. Developing excellent relationships and being a trusted advisor to the government will be imperative whilst energizing existing systems to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Successful Candidates must Demonstrate

  • Fluency (written and oral) in English and French

  • 2+ years with a major international strategy consultancy

  • Experience working in the public sector in a developing country

The ​Reward

  • Competitive compensation package

  • High degrees of responsibility and autonomy

  • The opportunity to drive an impactful set of reforms

  • Opportunities for further international travel with future projects
