The Senior Business Development Specialist (SBDS) will support the BD Manager; coordinate assigned proposals; and may contribute to longer-term market research and trends analysis. The SBDS will work with a wide range of Pact staff and teams worldwide - including but not limited to program management professionals, technical experts, finance staff, and country offices across Latin America, East and West Africa - to develop new projects and prepare proposals in response to donor requirements within Pacts technical areas (health, livelihoods, natural resource management, capacity development, governance, or engaging markets). Ideal candidates can blend the strategic, analytical thinking needed to craft a winning proposal with the tactical skills needed to address the day-to-day details of proposal management. At least 15% international travel is expected. Length of travel will vary based on specific needs, ranging from 2 weeks to 6 weeks at a time.
