Manager, Crosscutting Communications, CATALYZE
The CATALYZE Portfolio based out of Palladium’s Washington, D.C. office is currently seeking a Manager, Crosscutting Communications to provide dedicated communications support across CATALYZE activities, but focusing principally on the Biden-Harris Administration priorities of CATALYZE Education Finance (“EduFinance”) and the Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) activities.
CATALYZE is a $250 million eight-year program, designed to mobilize $2 billion in private capital, especially to underfinanced social sectors (such as education) and higher risk countries (especially low-income and post-conflict countries) around the globe, complemented by a cross-cutting inclusion of gender-lens investing. CATALYZE serves as a “platform of platforms” that provides services to many missions and bureaus that “buy in” to tap the CATALYZE investment and pay-for-results project management expertise. The aim is for investors to explore and find commercially viable opportunities and approaches to creating jobs, developing sustainable social services, tightening, and rationalizing supply chains, and advancing inclusive growth – ultimately, reducing the need for development institutions to provide donor funding.
If you are looking to be part of a dynamic, growing team, are looking to make immediate, measurable contributions; and you have expertise as a communications manager within international development, this position is for you.
