The Innovation Learning Advisor will work on the USAID-funded PSEMC project, and will work under the Innovation Team within USAID’s Private Sector Engagement (PSE) Hub. Tasked with identifying and resolving internal systems barriers to PSE, the Innovation Team helps support the creation, dissemination, and uptake of new tools, models, and methods for private sector engagement across USAID. A key component of this work involves crafting communication materials that effectively document and share lessons learned. The Advisor will lead the development, implementation, and refinement of learning materials for the Innovation Team. Additionally, the Advisor will work closely with other teams across the PSE Hub to support sharing of knowledge with Missions, Bureaus, and Independent Offices (MBIOs) to support replication and scale-up of promising new PSE tools being developed. This includes working with the PSE Communications/Knowledge Management (KM) team to develop blog posts and webinars, developing implementation guidance with the Hub’s Institutional Support team, and helping to develop content for training to help scale new PSE tools across USAID. The Advisor will work directly under the management of the Managing Director of the Innovation Team.
