Solar Cookers International (SCI), started in 1987, improves human health, economic well-being, women’s empowerment, and the environment by promoting climate-friendly solar cooking for vulnerable populations worldwide. SCI leads through advocacy, research, and strengthening the capacity of the global solar cooking movement. SCI has the highest ratings from Charity Navigator, GuideStar/Candid, and the BBB, and received the Keeling Curve Prize, which recognizes “the most impactful climate projects.” This is a new position as SCI is growing.
Solar Cookers International is seeking a Strategic Partnership Coordinator (SPC) or Strategic Partnership Manager (SPM) to grow SCI’s partnerships, consultancy opportunities, and financial support to increase the use of solar cookers globally. This position is responsible for the planning, acquisition, management, and growth of SCI’s partnerships with influential organizations in the clean cooking, renewable energy, environmental, and health sectors and in the United Nations System. Given the scale and complexity of the access to clean cooking, this role is a critical component of SCI’s growth and success in reaching the 2.4 billion people cooking with polluting fuels. The successful candidate will work with SCI staff to enhance current efforts and launch new endeavors for achieving SCI’s mission.
The level of the position hired (Coordinator or Manager) will be determined by the successful candidate’s experience level and skills. If hired as the Strategic Partnership Coordinator, there is the opportunity to grow into a Manager role as more experience is gained and resources allow. If a candidate has qualifying experience and skills, they could be hired immediately as a Strategic Partnership Manager. There would be more responsibility for strategy, analysis, ownership, and partnership growth in a Manager position.
The SPC/SPM will help develop and execute the partnership strategy and SCI’s operational plans and develop and own relationships with influential organizations in the clean cooking renewable energy, health, and environmental sectors and the United Nations System. The SPC/SPM will work cross-functionally with SCI staff in communications, program, development, administration, and research to implement SCI’s mission. This position will receive direct supervision from the Executive Director.
