Background: GiveDirectly is driving a re-evaluation of the assumptions underlying international
philanthropy with a provocative model: we deliver donations directly to the extreme poor and let
them decide what to do with them. This approach builds on two converging trends: the rapid spread of electronic last-mile payments solutions in the emerging markets, and the large body of experimental evidence showing that direct transfers are as or more cost-effective at reducing poverty than more traditional, top-down approaches. GiveDirectly’s field operations utilize state- of-the-art technology and business processes to deliver transfers securely, efficiently, and transparently. Our unorthodox approach – allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose where they invest – has prompted debate in the popular press and among policy makers. GiveDirectly has been featured on NPR’s This American Life, and in Foreign Affairs, The Economist, and The New York Times. It was named one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance by FastCompany, one of the 25 Most Audacious Companies by Inc., and one of GiveWell’s top- rated charities for 4 years running.
Overview: The Office Administrator (OA) role will play an important role in managing the country office by procuring inventory and supplies and sourcing multiple offices, helping to implement systems, and providing administrative leverage to the management team. The role will reward exceptional organizational skills, rapid problem-solving for a range of logistical challenges, and a deep interest in building GiveDirectly’s culture and organizational reach
