Who we are
PSI is a network of locally rooted, globally connected organizations working to achieve consumer-powered healthcare — people-centered health systems that ensure quality, affordable care wherever and whenever it is needed. Our origins in sexual and reproductive health have grown into a broader mission. Today, we work with the public and private sectors as well as local communities, prioritizing people’s voice and choice and developing solutions to meet their essential health needs. Over the past five decades, we have helped push boundaries, break taboos, set trends, and develop innovative solutions to complex global health challenges.
With support from the Government of Mozambique and international donors such as the Royal Netherlands Embassy, DFID, USAID, CIFF, and other private foundations, PSI has worked in Mozambique since 1995. We have implemented social marketing and behavior change communications to deliver prevention and treatment products and services across various health areas, including sexual reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, malaria, WASH, and cervical cancer. In Mozambique, PSI is leading the way in enhancing the private sector contribution to the health system and in developing the market for sanitation products in the northern region; supports the ministry of health in data use and quality assurance to boost the capacity of the health system to provide quality and sustainable healthcare; provides technical assistance to government and partners in advancing the self-care movement; steps up the adoption of digital health care solutions that bring care closer to communities. The program has an annual budget of approximately $8 million, five offices in-country, and 100 staff.
PSI seeks a Social & Business Change Director that will oversee the activities of a department or function within Mozambique. Lead departmental/functional strategy development and work planning and supervise the team responsible for implementation. This individual will serve as a subject matter expert internally and represent PSI Mozambique externally with donors, partners, and other stakeholders. Must be a natural-born communicator and have experience working in social and behavior change (SBC), with a proven track record in human-centered design with developed core skills across research, data analysis, portfolio management, corporate communications, and SBC planning and execution. Must be a tech enthusiast and have experience in developing innovative and impactful digital health solutions that are continuously improved using a combination of research, routine monitoring data, and programmatic dashboards. Above all, have an infectious energy for building empathy with our consumers leveraging their insights to design solutions that are tailored to their needs and desires.

What are we looking for?
The candidate we hire will embody PSI’s corporate values:
Measurement: You use hard evidence to make decisions and guide your work. You set clear goalposts in advance and explain clearly if you need to move them.
Pragmatism: You’ll strive to deliver the best possible result with the resources available. You won’t be paralyzed by a need to make things perfect.
Honesty: You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings – it’s the only way you’ll learn and improve.
Collaboration: You’ll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters, and in our country offices – if you try to do it all yourself, you won’t succeed.
Trust: You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt.
Commitment: You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin.
References will be required. The successful candidate will be required to pass a background check.
