In particular, we are looking for an individual who is able to work on projects in Francophone Africa with experience of international finance institutions’ E&S standards (eg. IFC, World Bank, AfDB, EBRD).

Job Duties:

Working as either a member of a multidisciplinary team, or directly for clients, you will be responsible for leading the delivery of the social component of projects. This may include:

  • social baseline surveys

  • engaging with affected communities and stakeholders (including in French)

  • conducting assessments of social impacts

  • defining mitigation measures

  • determining permitting and regulatory compliance

  • developing social management plans

  • preparing and implementing RAPs and LRPs

  • developing community investment programmes

  • preparation and implementation of community & stakeholder engagement plans

  • task management, including coordination and budgeting

  • business development activities

  • working with colleagues on major proposals

  • delivering work through clearly written reports (in French and English), and, as part of the project team, presentations to clients.

Minimum Requirements

  • Fluency in French language (written and spoken)

  • You must have international ESIA experience outside of the UK, good French speaking and French reporting writing skills, experience in project performance against international finance standards (such as IFC, Equator Principles, World Bank E&S Framework, EBRD) and experience of social impact assessment, mitigation and management.

Preferred Qualifications

  • You must have international experience outside of the UK, good French speaking and French reporting writing skills, experience in project performance against international finance standards (such as IFC, Equator Principles, World Bank E&S Framework, EBRD) and experience of social impact assessment, mitigation and management.

  • Fluency in spoken French is essential. Other languages, particularly Spanish and Arabic, would be advantageous.

  • You will be required to travel internationally, occasionally at short notice, but will be UK based.

  • The successful candidate would ideally have a post-graduate qualification related to social development or environmental management. Candidates with a relevant under-graduate degree and a comprehensive level of practical experience will also be considered.
