Nexus seeks an Executive Director (ED) to be based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This is an exciting opportunity to lead an innovative organization creating real change for clean energy, water and sanitation access. The successful candidate will lead the Nexus team, set the strategic focus, drive growth, and identify new opportunities for increasing the organisation´s impact and relevance.
Nexus has evolved from its origin as a fully-subsidized organization to reliance on revenue-generating activities to fund operations. This transition has brought on a range of strategic and financial challenges that the new ED will need to tackle with clear strategic thinking, a view for identifying new opportunities, and a hands-on, engaged and practical attitude towards the Board, the team and the partners.
The ED reports to the Board of Directors, which is comprised of individuals representing both Nexus’ members and external organizations. The ED also sits on the Board of Directors of the Pioneer Facility, a debt fund launched by Nexus for Development.
