After six years at GOGLA, our Director of Policy, Johanna Galan is moving on to join the World Bank’s Lighting Global team (read more here).
That's why we are looking for a new Director of Policy.
The off-grid solar industry has grown significantly in recent years, yet it remains at an early stage in addressing the demands of nearly a billion people that still do not have access to electricity. Based on a strong understanding of growing trends, issues and opportunities faced by the industry, the Director of Policy will design and lead the industry’s advocacy strategy both globally and regionally.
The successful applicant will also be responsible for a team of 9 regional and global policy focused professionals that manage a portfolio of sector support initiatives with an annual budget of around € 1.25 million. The Director of Policy will need to secure continued support and engagement from GOGLA’s members, and build partnerships with critical players in separate but related sectors to join forces and leverage strengths.
As one of three members of the GOGLA Management Team, the Director of Policy will also share responsibility for the functioning of the full team, engaging directly with the GOGLA Board of Directors, and contributing to efforts to fundraise for GOGLA’s future sector support activities.
