Position: Administrative Coordinator, Tanzania (National Position)
Established in 2008, Results for Development (R4D) is a non-profit organization (NGO) and leader in the field of international development, based in Washington, D.C, with staff working in 10 countries outside the U.S., including our offices in Tanzania and Ethiopia. R4D strengthens systems and markets that support well-nourished, healthy, and educated people. Through engaging with local change agents, which includes government agencies, the private sector and civil society organizations around the world — R4D drives impact by supporting sustainable financing; identifying and scaling innovations that work; shaping markets to improve access to key commodities and services; improving public-private engagement; increasing citizen participation and governance; facilitating collaborative and adaptive learning; and using data for decision-making. R4D has ministerial-level relationships and programs in over 55 countries and technical partnerships with over 75 organizations worldwide.

R4D’s Market Shaping practice area works with local change agents to ensure that markets are transformed sustainably to drive increased access to (and improve appropriate use of) essential commodities, such as childhood pneumonia diagnosis and treatments, maternal health supplies, anti-malarial bed nets, HIV/AIDS medicines, nutrition supplements, and books. R4D achieves this by aligning priorities and incentives of key market actors including policymakers, procurers, manufacturers and financiers at the global and country levels to develop and execute solutions for underserved markets at scale.

We have a unique and vibrant culture at R4D and we want to keep it that way. Diversity, equity and inclusion are at the heart of our work environment and help advance our mission.
