About AMPLIFY Girls

AMPLIFY Girls is a network of 40 community-driven organizations in Africa committed to building agency in adolescent girls. We envision a world where agency and opportunity are granted to every girl and resources and respect are given to the community-driven organizations that support them. 

Your Responsibilities will entail:

1. Co-Leadership of AMPLIFY Girls (responsibilities shared with the North America-based Co-CEO)
  • Steward organizational vision, strategy, identity and brand.
  • Oversee implementation of the Strategic Plan, steering its operationalization, tracking, and annual review.
  • Ensure that AG’s partners’ presence, expertise, and priorities are centered.
 
2. Lead Partner Support Programming and Network Management
  • Oversee and support the Director of Partner Learning and Development, ensuring alignment on partner priorities and that effective strategies are in place. 
  • Provide strategic oversight and coaching on the design of responsive programs, high-quality services, organizational capacity development tools and partner peer-learning forums that drive adoption of best case practices.  
  • Ensure streamlined partner outreach by supporting on all network and country-level partner communication.

3. Spearhead our growing Advocacy agenda
  • Lead an internal process to build out an advocacy strategy that identifies AG’s key global and regional arenas and audiences, and defines our goals, priorities, messaging and approaches for each. 
  • Actively seek out events, platforms and opportunities that further our advocacy goals.
  • Ensure we have an effective engagement plan for each advocacy opportunity and position our various advocacy assets well in these spaces. 

4. Support Fundraising and Communications  (lead by North-America based Co-CEO)
  • Represent AG’s work, impact and opportunities in partner support programming and network management to current and potential donors.
  • Attend local, regional, or international donor meetings, calls and convenings as part of donor stewarding efforts.
  • Keep eyes open for funding opportunities, both for AMPLIFY Girls and the members.

5. Lead Africa-side Operations and Administration

  • Hiring, appraisal and oversight of all African reports and consultants

Who we are looking for 
  • You’re deeply passionate about equity in development. You’ve built your career around the idea that all voices should be heard and that resources, power and respect belong to community-driven organizations. You are acutely aware of the inequities of the development world and have worked to overcome them and created access for those previously excluded.
  • You want to serve African girls by serving the organizations that serve them.
  • You have at least 3-5 years experience in an executive or senior leadership position in a growing non-profit with a social-justice mission. 
  • You’re excited about Co-Leadership. You are highly collaborative, know how to achieve alignment and are comfortable dealing with conflict in a remote, cross-cultural setting.
