GiveDirectly Country Director - Jobs in Kenya
GiveDirectly Country Director - Jobs in KenyaRole Overview:
GiveDirectly’s field organization is growing fast: we recently doubled our country office footprint and are experimenting with a range of research and design questions from “How do you deliver cash in a country with 1 bank in a district of 400,000 people?” to “What’s the impact of providing a universal basic income to 10,000+ individuals?”
As we scale, we need exceptional emerging leaders to manage our projects in each country.
