ABOUT THE ROLE

Instiglio is a non-profit consulting firm whose goal is to reshape expectations, raise performance standards, and maximize the impact of the development community. To do so, since our founding in 2012, we have pioneered novel Results-Based Financing (RBF) and Performance Management approaches in developing countries to ensure that every dollar invested in solutions to poverty has the greatest possible impact. Instiglio is helping to build a global results movement in major social sectors, including livelihoods, agriculture, education, health, employment, and governance.

The Morocco office is Instiglio’s newest office, where we are leading exciting engagements with ministries and donors to transform social service delivery across a range of sectors. Morocco offers an environment ripe for RBF: a strong focus on results, strong government capabilities, and interest from key players to support RBF. Our projects are an opportunity to position Morocco as a leading country in the use of RBF, generate critical learnings, and create a blueprint for improved institutional performance.

Associates in the Morocco office will join a growing, entrepreneurial team. They will gain expertise in RBF by contributing to the development of RBF instruments while playing a crucial role in the execution of our projects. They will gain a thorough understanding of design choices, independently assess tradeoffs, and make technical recommendations. Associates at Instiglio support project teams in guiding stakeholders through difficult yet important changes to their operations by translating complex concepts into understandable insights. Associates will work directly with a team composed of a project lead, project manager(s), senior associates, and analysts to deliver high-quality services.
