Secretary to Managing Director - ICCo India (Apply by: April 12, 2016)

Secretary to Managing Director, ICCo, New Delhi

1. POSITION VACANT: Secretary to Managing Director, ICCo, New Delhi
ICCo India, affiliated to ICCO Cooperation, the Netherlands, was registered as a not-for-profit trust in India in 2008. The ICCO Cooperation is a Global development organization working in 44 countries across the globe.
ICCO Cooperation has established the following two core principles which guide the work for all ICCO regions:
1) Securing sustainable livelihoods;
2) Justice and dignity for all
A not-for-profit development organization, ICCo India stands for "Innovative Change Collaborative" in its vision and operational principles. ICCo India believes that "Innovative" strategic thinking and "Collaborative" effort, are key for bringing about desired change in society and systems.

In line with the strategic shift ICCo India has also been transitioning from a pure grant based support model to co-implementation model and co-financer model. ICCo India recognizes the need to innovate, evolve and adopt a robust strategic roadmap to secure financial sustainability. This will entail significantly greater cooperation with the Indian government and the private sector leading to a diversification in the partner mix.
ICCo India’s interventions and service offerings will aim at securing sustainable livelihoods, while inherently integrating the principle of justice and dignity within those interventions with the government for policy interventions directed at ensuring justice and dignity for all. As an organization, ICCo India’s role will thus transition from that of a provider of grant support to encompass those of broker/facilitator, co-implementer, strategic financer and lobbyist.
