JOB DESCRIPTION

About 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. 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. In Peru the team aided the Ministry of Education with crucial reforms to refine teacher performance and consequently helped increase students’ academic results.

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 Mozambique has already kicked off and is already proving highly effective.

Role​ in Brief

Based in Maputo, you will support officials at central and provincial 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.

To date this work has already been highly successful, with the team achieving a number of highly impactful quick wins. On the back of this success, we have been asked to expand our team as we begin to roll out a number of new initiatives to continue gain rapid improvements in the system. You will build on the existing insights, excitement and engagement to strengthen the health system at a national level.

Successful Candidates must Demonstrate

  • Fluency (written and oral) in English and Portuguese

  • 2+ years with an 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
