Arghyam is looking for Manager - Advocacy
Posted on

Arghyam is a registered public charitable foundation that has been working to provide safe and sustainable water for the last 15 years. It has 3 focus areas of intervention in water – groundwater, springs and water quality. All the 3 areas have built up momentum and created significant impact. But the need is to do much, much more- quicker, cheaper and better. This new approach disrupts the way we think about how social welfare organizations bring about change, at scale. The big thinkers, and the best minds are coming together to transform the way change can happen in the social sector to achieve the mission to “Strengthen the ability of the ecosystem to enable water security for 100 million people by 2023”. This is the beginning of a transformational journey and you now have a chance to participate in its evolution.

This will be a collaborative effort and is the foundation for our evolving ForWater societal platform approach which will be focused on developing digital tools and infrastructure to enable the ecosystem players (Community members, Civil Society organizations, Government, Research organizations and Funders) to access knowledge, data and services. These tools will help them focus on solving the water problem locally while leveraging simple technological tools to perform their work more efficiently, effectively with higher visibility and accountability.

About the Position

The position is designed to support advocacy and communications with different stakeholders who operate at scale - across government agencies, civil society organisations and market actors. Specifically, the Advocacy Manager will be responsible for socialising the digital at scale thinking for capacity building and overall program design and bringing on board new, interested partners on to the ForWater collaborative. This will be through targeted advocacy with pre-identified actors as well as more general communications targeted to generate interest among the larger ecosystem.

Last Date of Application: 8th October 2021
