Economic Advancement Program, London

EAP has two overarching goals: (1) enhancing the capacity and agency of economically marginalised populations; and (2) increasing openness and equity in the economic and business systems in which they live and work.

The program deploys capital in the form of private sector investments – having integrated the Soros Economic Development Fund (SEDF), which previously was run separately from the Foundations. But private capital is rarely the only, or even the most important, constraint in addressing social and economic injustice. EAP also uses grants to support civil society, economic policy advocacy to influence government, stakeholder engagement to build coalitions, and collaborates closely with other OSF thematic and geographic programs to accomplish its work. In short, because economic systems are complex, the Program takes an integrated approach to intervention.

The EAP is looking for an investment professional to support its capital deployment activities in the role of Investment Principal.  This role will report to the Director of Investments of EAP. The role will be based in London, and require substantial travel worldwide.

The individual would participate in all aspects of the business including identifying potential transactions, evaluating and structuring of equity and debt investments, evaluating the business environment in target countries, evaluating the skills and skill gaps of potential entrepreneurs, assisting in portfolio monitoring efforts, and preparing presentations for internal and external parties.

Closing date: 31 October 2017.
