Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Laterite is a data, research, and technical advisory firm that helps clients understand and analyze complex development challenges. We work with universities, global think tanks, international NGOs, multilateral donor organizations, and government ministries and agencies.
We are looking for a Research Associate to manage one or two research projects in East Africa: coordinating the project team; ensuring implementation according to protocols; managing to the budget and timeline; and communicating with clients.
Our new colleague is passionate about social and economic research in East Africa. They can quickly grasp research concepts and structure their technical approach to a problem. They have strong analytical and interpersonal skills, self-motivation, and a drive to flourish in a fast-paced environment, where timelines can often be unpredictable. Our candidates have project coordination experience and can manage activities involving varying levels of stakeholders and multiple team members.
This position is open in Amsterdam, Netherlands (for candidates with a valid EU-working permit) or in Kigali, Rwanda (for Rwandan nationals) and is offered as a 1-year contract. Following this first contract, Laterite will be open to discussing the possibility of extension and, for candidates based in the Netherlands, career development opportunities in one of our East Africa offices.
