About Alcis

Operating from our office in Guildford, we support international development projects by providing insight and analysis to enable evidence-based decision making in some of the world’s most fragile and complex environments.

Reporting to the Business Development Manager, you will support the team to build and nurture relationships with both clients and subject matter experts to help us find and win more opportunities with stronger teams.

We know that our success is because of the excellent team we support and invest in.

 

Alcis provides annual personal professional development opportunities; a week long course of your choosing, after sign-off from your line manager.

About the role

You will be responsible for the everyday engagement with the people that we work with. This includes building and nurturing relationships with our clients and growing network of subject matter experts. This includes conflict and gender sensitivity experts, agricultural and tech experts.

You will be key to finding the right partners when an interesting opportunity comes our way.

On a daily basis you could be talking to The UN, charities, university academics and government officials.

 

It is an exciting and varied role in a small team so you will be expected to work independently early on and get stuck in with other work when needed.
