Field Manager, Monitoring and Follow Up Job Vacancy – GiveDirectly (GD)

Organization: GiveDirectly (GD)
Country Director
GiveDirectly (GD) aims to reshape international
giving – and millions of lives – by providing cash grants directly to the
world’s poorest. The Brookings Institution estimates that $70B of cash
transfers would be required to eliminate the poverty gap; the aid sector
currently spends $135B each year, much of it on evidence-free interventions.
GiveDirectly wants to change that, establishing cash transfers as a benchmark
for foreign aid – as the index fund is a benchmark for the financial industry –
and in the process accelerating the end of extreme poverty.

GD has raised over $200m since launching in 2011,
delivered cash to more than 125,000 families, and launched offices in 7
countries. We’ve also supported large-scale, experimental research that
indicates strong recipient impact of our programs. As a result GD has been
celebrated as one of the most innovative non-profit companies by Fast Company,
while the growing cash transfer movement and GD’s leading role within it have
been featured in the New York Times Magazine, This American Life, Foreign
Affairs, and The Economist.

has hailed from consultancies, investment banks, start-ups, non-profits, and
