YOUR POSITION WITH TNC
A recent TNC publication, Beyond the Source, revealed over 2,000 cities globally could benefit from source water protection. Responding to this need, The Nature Conservancy is setting high ambitions to establish 400 Water Funds by 2025. To dramatically increase the annual rate in which water funds are established while not risking reduction in quality, changes will need to be made in the current Water Fund business model.
Over the next 18 – 24 months, The Nature Conservancy will pilot changes to the business model while establishing new water funds through what is known as the Accelerator. Changes are primarily focused on increasing local partner capacity to develop water funds while maintaining quality control with TNC oversight and breaking silos in traditional team structures. The Project Manager will be responsible for the overall administration of approximately five pilot Water Funds. The Project Manager will report to the Latin America General Regional Manager and System Innovation Director with a dotted line to the Latin America Water Security Manager.
The Project Manager assures maximum quality of work in all pilot water funds. He/She writes the requests for proposals/contracts and, with the support of a diversified, cross-boundary business unit team, validates all deliverables are met according to the desired state criteria framework. He/She will ensure that products are delivered on time according to the work plans established. The Project Manager works with the WF Network Manager and WF Toolbox Manager to facilitate on-line and in-person training, develop and make new training material available, and improve the toolbox curriculum based on observations and experiences with the pilots. He/She will play an important knowledge management role, helping to identify and recommends where further adjustments can be made to the business model as well as monitoring the success of the pilot. He/She may also provide TNC communications, marketing and philanthropy staff with content related to the pilot’s progress.
