Head of Impact Partnerships

Cambridge, England, United Kingdom Full-time

Take Simprints’ impact to the next level

Simprints is a nonprofit tech company founded by a team of researchers from the University of Cambridge. Our mission is to transform the way we fight poverty. We use technology like biometrics to radically increase transparency and effectiveness in global development. Our goal is to make sure that every vaccine, every bednet, every dollar reaches its intended beneficiary.

As the only nonprofit biometrics company in the world, we provide accurate, affordable, and secure identification tools to help NGOs, businesses and governments deliver essential services to their most vulnerable populations. We are backed by the Gates Foundation, USAID, DFID, Gavi, the Global Innovation Fund and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, and we work with multiple partners including Concern Worldwide, BRAC, and Mercy Corps.

Since August 2016, we have launched projects in Bangladesh, Nepal, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Malawi, and Somalia. This is just the beginning. Simprints has already committed to reach 4.5m beneficiaries by the end of 2019. Right now, our flagship project with the Ethiopian Ministry of Health (backed by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation) is delivering essential deworming treatment to 2m individuals across 15 districts of Ethiopia.  

About the role: 

The Head of Impact Partnerships - without a doubt - is a critical hire to achieve our ambitious goals. You will report directly to the COO and will focus on increasing our reach and impact with partners - NGOs, social enterprises, and governments.  You will spend about 30% of your time traveling. From one day to the next, you might be in Washington D.C. landing contracts for some of the biggest international development programmes in the world, mentoring an up and coming Impact Partnerships Manager through their first deal in Kenya, or defining and iterating on our commercial strategy and business models for East Africa. Find out more about the role, responsibilities, and what it is like to work at Simprints here.
