Business Development and Refugee Camp Lead

Company and Position Description

Sanivation believes in a sustainable world where safe and dignified sanitation is a reality for everyone. We’re doing this through focusing on solutions people want and using waste as a valuable resource. One market in which we are expanding is refugee camps.

Refugee camps are growing rapidly and they lack safe and cost-effective means for sanitation. Sanivation is helping multilaterals and implementing partners meet this demand.

We’ve reimagined what delivering rapid and local services look likes for sanitation implementing partners in protracted refugee camps. In conjunction with implementing partners we design, build, and train local refugees on providing sanitation services that enable refugee camps to lower the risk of disease transmission and conserve the environment. 

We’re looking for a Business Development and Refugee Camp Lead who is an exceptional international development professional with the ability to work with senior leaders to develop a strategy and grow one of Sanivation’s key verticals. 

We have a great team and many strong current and potential partners. We are looking to find someone that is impassioned to help lead Sanivation though significant growth. We believe the best way to grow is to hire really good people and give them what they need to execute.
