Job Description

About the Centre for Public Impact (CPI): 

CPI is a not-for-profit founded by the Boston Consulting Group. Believing that governments can and want to do better for people, we work side-by-side with governments — and all those who help them — to reimagine government, and turn ideas into action, to bring about better outcomes for everyone.

Our mission is to help governments achieve public impact, i.e. better outcomes for citizens. We are only four years old but already our global footprint is expansive and we partner with some of the biggest names in government, academia and public sector innovation in the world.

Our values: 

  • courageous - we have the courage to speak the truth, to challenge without fear and tackle the difficult questions

  • respectful - we respect differences, we seek to understand them and we look out for one another

  • optimistic - we are positive about what we and governments can do for our societies

  • inclusive - we are non partisan, we work together and seek ideas and solutions across the divides

We encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply. This includes candidates that have previously found it hard to be considered for other positions on the basis of their qualifications, disabilities, personal background or life events. If you would like to apply for the position but see a barrier to joining us, please do apply and we will work with you to find a solution.

What you’ll be doing:

As a Programme Associate in the CPI India team, you will be responsible for delivering programmes of work with governments and their partners. Activities would include: 

  • Work with members of the CPI India team and client team members to deliver projects and initiatives from inception to design through to implementation

  • Lead your respective work streams, working together with the Programme Manager.

  • Contribute to team culture and a self-organised way of working. 

The Programme Associate should have these skills: 

  • Passion for government and improving outcomes for citizens.

  • 1+ years experience in consulting, public sector or not-for-profit related roles. 

  • Experience of communicating effectively, having strong plain English writing skills. 

  • Experience with balancing competing priorities, willing to take initiative and work autonomously to meet deadlines. 

  • Comfortable with ambiguity and the complexity of our work, where anything is possible but not always known in advance.

  • High levels of digital literacy, particularly across Google and MS Office applications. 

Incoming applications are considered on an ongoing basis. Job interviews are expected to take place from 17th January 2022.

Contract: Initially for 6 months; renewable on mutual agreement and possibility of full-time employment to CPI India.

Location: New Delhi, India. Will need to work on client location and hence remote work will be limited. If applying from outside India, you should ensure that you meet the necessary visa and work permit requirements. We are unable to act as a sponsor or provide visa support. 

We are using Applied in order to debias our hiring process and ensure that we are shortlisting candidates based on their skills. Your application will be anonymised for review. Although we ask for your CV, it will not be looked at until further down the process.

If you have any questions about this position or for information, Amy Noonan (amy@centreforpublicimpact.org), Global People and Operations Manager, is happy to help.
