Swaniti Initiative is hiring 6 associates who would be working with selected MPs on their ‘model village’ program as strong program managers

About Swaniti Initiative:

Swaniti Initiative is a non-partisan, social enterprise that delivers development solutions to policymakers and representatives. We works with State Governments and Parliamentarians across 17 states. Swaniti works on climate and sustainability, social protection, rural livelihood & governance, and policy-making. We work through a three- pronged approach: provide research support on key government programs and initiatives, on- ground implementation insights for the delivery of public service, and technological intervention to improve service delivery.

About the role:

Working with Parliamentarians is a critical part of our work since we believe that the developmental works at a constituency level can have a transformative impact. We are looking for professionals who are passionate about such an impact on grassroots communities through their joint efforts with the Parliamentarians. The role requires the individual to be self- driven, and an exceptional project manager with emotional intelligence and attention to detail.
