FYEP seeks to recruit a Business Development and Partnerships Lead who embodies our values, understands the future challenges and opportunities for business development and is passionate about creating impact in Pakistan’s employment ecosystem.
The Business Development and Partnerships Lead is a full-time leadership role that will report directly to the Country Director Pakistan, with two primary roles.
1) Securing jobs for Generation graduates across a growing employer portfolio
Securing employer commitments to hire graduates of the Generation program is a critical enabler of our high placement rates. As BD Lead you are responsible for maintaining high job attainment rates by identifying and securing vacancies for graduates from among our network of employer partners, as well as growing this network in its own right. You are further tasked with identifying opportunities for Generation to embed our methodology in the recruiting and training processes of large private sector employers.
2) Forging and managing institutional partnerships for FYEP
Institutional partners (funders, government, training organizations, corporates) provide FYEP with much needed financing and infrastructure to deliver our programs. For example, philanthropic funders provide grants, corporations and associations provide access to new employer networks. As Partnerships Lead you are responsible for identifying new target partners, developing relationships and securing formal agreements to collaborate with these institutions, delivering the resourcing that FYEP needs to achieve our ambitious impact targets.

PARTNERSHIP PORTFOLIO DEVELOPMENT
Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation was created in 2014 to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.
We’re building a skills-training methodology that can serve hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions, of young people a year. And we’re building proof that this training creates real business outcomes for employers, and lasting career impact for trainees—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills. Our goal is to help our students achieve personal and professional success—and fundamentally change their life trajectories. Generation programs prepare unemployed or underemployed young people, aged 18 to 29, for jobs in four sectors: healthcare, technology, retail/sales, and skilled trades.
Today, Generation is active in twelve countries—101 cities and 280 sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
