JOB DESCRIPTION

About Acasus

Acasus is a consultancy that drives major reforms in health and education around the world.

In health, we are contributing towards improving global immunization rates. To date, we have supported governments across Asia, Africa and South America to radically increase immunization coverage and improve access to basic healthcare facilities, prenatal and maternity clinics in remote areas. Our education projects in South America and the Middle East have successfully provided access to basic education for millions of children. 

We work in small teams to support the most senior officials in government (typically at ministerial or prime-ministerial level) in driving rapid reforms. We help 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 consist of experienced consultants from leading international consultancies (McKinsey, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger and others) and highly talented locally-hired staff. The success of our projects relies on the dedication, development, and excellent work of our teams.

Context & Impact

Acasus has supported health and education reforms since 2013. Our team in Pakistan achieved the most rapid increase in vaccination coverage recorded to date — improving the coverage of life-saving child vaccines across the Punjab province from 50% to 90% in just two years. 

In Peru, our team aided the Ministry of Education with crucial reforms to improve teacher performance. These reforms led to significant increase in student outcomes.

Following the success of our programmes across the world, we are seeking a Global Consulting Project Manager to be based in our Switzerland office. 

As Global Consulting Project Manager, your role will be to coordinate learning and knowledge sharing among our ‘on the ground’ consultant teams. These teams work in countries around the world, including  Pakistan, Afghanistan, DRC, and Ethiopia, using ‘delivery approaches’ to radically reform health and education systems.

Successful candidates must demonstrate

  • At least four (4) years of experience working in either India, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Nigeria or DRC

  • Experience delivering projects driven by data collection and analysis using mobile applications, web services, and cloud database systems

  • Experience in working to reform primary health care systems

  • Experience working in the education sector

  • Minimum of four (4) years consulting experience

  • Strong problem solving and interpersonal skills

  • Willing to move to Switzerland and join our office in Zug or Chiasso

The ​Reward

  • Competitive compensation package 

  • High degrees of responsibility and autonomy

  • Opportunity to work in a dynamic organization which is transforming global health and education outcomes

  • Experience in coordinating delivery efforts of international teams on 4 continents
