Organisation

Location
Luxembourg
Closing Date
Nov. 30, 2022

LuxDev aims to develop an innovative approach to mobilise the private sector to support the Sustainable Development Goals. 

The main role of the Coordinator will be the design and implementation of the project tools and the operationalisation of the project document. The Coordinator should contribute to the further development of the strategic vision as defined in the project document and ensure its implementation. To this end, the Coordinator will manage a team of three people who will be based in Luxembourg and will liaise with LuxDev's teams in the field, including three partnership facilitators dedicated to the project. 

As the implementation of these instruments is a new approach for Luxembourg, the Coordinator's expertise in managing similar initiatives will be essential and will allow LuxDev to fulfil its role as a reliable advisor to the Luxembourg Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs, with whom the Coordinator will work closely.
