    About the role

    The Chief Partnerships Officer joins us at a critical juncture. Sanergy is ramping up expansion in Kenya and throughout sub-Saharan Africa to serve 1.5 million people in at least 3 countries over the next 5 years. The Chief Partnerships Officer will be uniquely responsible for orchestrating our work with funders (predominantly institutional, but also philanthropic), global government agencies, and the larger WASH community. To achieve our goals, we must increase the amount of financing into WASH from major development agencies and philanthropy, improve the financing and regulatory environment through effective policy and advocacy work, and change the narrative on sanitation, such that it becomes a priority issue for governments and financiers. The Chief Partnerships Officer manages the 3 teams - business development, global policy & advocacy, and external comms - responsible for achieving these results. We are excited for the incoming Head of Partnership to develop and execute a strategy that integrates these work streams into one seamless endeavor. Let’s go!
