Over the last forty years the Centre for International Development and Training (CIDT) has earned a reputation as a centre of excellence for development, training, consultancy and project management in more than 120 countries see www.wlv.ac.uk/cidt. CIDT, which is based at the Telford Campus of the University of Wolverhampton, offers practical, realistic solutions that are responsive to clients’ needs in capacity and human resourced development, for pro-poor growth and social, economic and environmental sustainability,
CIDT is a self-funded Centre working within the academic framework of the University. It operates as a social enterprise and is highly experienced in the contractual, managerial, operational and financial aspects of external contracts.  This means that the Centre is free to respond quickly and flexibly in the provision of services and that CIDT staff need to be actively entrepreneurial.  This opportunity is therefore not suited to those aiming for a traditional academic career path.

CIDT is seeking to expand and wishes to recruit an enthusiastic, people-centred international development professional to join our dynamic, multidisciplinary team.  To be considered for this post you will have a deep understanding of poverty issues and be ready to work internationally.  You will be qualified to Masters level or equivalent in one or more of the following core areas of our work: International Development/ Development Studies, Social Development, Gender and Development, and have working experience in the fields of social protection, social inclusion, political economy, working in fragile states or in a complimentary area such as governance/institutions, or organisational management. You will have a proven track record in entrepreneurial work and in facilitating participatory development processes overseas, as well as an extensive network and strong flexible teamwork skills. You will be expected to engage in business development and delivery of consultancy, project management and capacity building services, be comfortable developing and leading small teams, bids and proposals and will be prepared to work flexibly across the Centre’s various areas of practice. It will be a strong advantage if you can work to professional standards in French and/or Spanish, as well as English and if you have quantitative social research skills.
