Last Day of Application: 31 May 2019
Aidha is an award winning Singapore-registered charity. Our mission is to provide financial literacy and self-development skills to foreign domestic workers and lower income women to enable them and their families to break out of the cycle of poverty. Started initially under the auspices of UNIFEM (now UN Women), Aidha became an organisation in its own right in 2006. Since its inception, Aidha has impacted more than 4,000 women and their families and communities. In April 2015, we achieved the much-coveted IPC (Institution of Public Character) status.
The role of Director, Programmes and Partnerships, is one that contributes to the strategic development of Aidha’s programme offerings and is responsible for developing strategic partnerships with partner organisations.
Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Programmes & Partnerships Director is responsible for guiding the development of new programmes as well as determining the direction of the current student and alumni programmes; overseeing the research and evaluation initiatives that will track the success and impact of Aidha’s programmes; and managing curriculum reviews to ensure Aidha’s programmes remain effective and relevant to its students. The Programmes & Partnerships Director will also play a key role in developing new partnerships to further Aidha’s programme priorities, including partnerships with local and international non-profits as well as funders.

Our ideal PD is that rare combination of being able to think big picture but also able to get down to details. The PD would ideally have experience in programme development and evaluation and possess excellent written and verbal communication skills in English.
Proficiency in Tagalog and Bahasa Indonesia would be a bonus. With the lead role in overseeing Aidha’s curriculum including the development of new content, experience in financial services/financial inclusion programming would be ideal; barring this, a good understanding of personal finance and business concepts would be needed.
The PD must have strong organisational skills and able to juggle multiple projects and be unfazed with tight deadlines. With Aidha’s increased interest in being more engaged with other likeminded organisations in the region as well as increasing our presence in the international development community, international development experience would be an asset. With the many
financial needs of the foreign domestic worker community the potential to expand Aidha’s offerings is considerable. This role will play a critical role in setting the direction of our programme priorities and providing the needed capacity to achieve them.
