What is a Project Leader?
As a Project Leader, you’ll lead internal and external teams towards more effective public sector work – and greater impact for everyday people. DA PLs are senior managers, simultaneously leading multiple projects or major workstreams, responsible for shaping the work we do and end-to-end management of the DA teams that deliver impact. PLs are responsible for maintaining and growing senior relationships (within client governments, with our philanthropic and public sector partners), while leading and coaching teams of experienced Delivery Leaders (most DLs have at least 5-8 years relevant experience and a master’s degree).

We’re open to lots of backgrounds as long as you can show us you’re a skilled leader, an analytical thinker, a clear communicator, and an avid learner.
These are the basics.
