******************************* *Program Manager, Financial Inclusion Toronto, Ontario
The MasterCard Foundation is seeking a Program Manager, Financial Inclusion in Toronto. The MasterCard Foundation is a global foundation based in Toronto, Canada, with approximately $9 billion in assets. It was established through the generosity of MasterCard Worldwide at the time of the company's initial public offering in 2006. As an independent entity, its policies, operations and funding decisions are determined by its own Board of Directors and President and CEO. The Foundation believes that every person has the potential to transform their lives and improve the lives of their families and communities. The Foundation collaborates with partners to advance sustainable and scalable solutions in financial inclusion and youth learning, focusing on countries - particularly Sub-Saharan Africa - that face high rates of poverty, limited access to financial services and growing numbers of out-of- school youth. The Foundation values innovative and fresh thinking as it strives to become an influential global thought-contributor. Its work is achieved by a strategic, nimble and highly entrepreneurial team with a proactive and results-oriented approach to its philanthropic activities. The organization's culture is shaped by people who are driven and passionate about the Foundation's mission. FINANCIAL INCLUSION: In March 2013, the Foundation's Financial Inclusion program rebranded its work in "microfinance" to the more holistically termed "financial inclusion." This internal shift at the Foundation mirrored a shift within the industry towards fostering and supporting a financially inclusive society. As the microfinance industry matured throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s and increasingly demonstrated its ability to scale and to achieve commercial sustainability, there was simultaneously wide recognition that poor people need a full range of financial services - not just credit - to deal with challenges related to income volatility and economic vulnerability. Therefore, the industry (and the Foundation's Financial Inclusion program) shifted toward a vision of financial inclusion in which low-income individuals, households, and small businesses have access to, and can effectively use, appropriate, relevant financial services such as savings, credit, payments, health insurance, etc. To date, the Foundation's Financial Inclusion program has committed more than $300 million to 33 organizations across multi-year projects. These interventions serve approximately five million people and are anticipated to benefit fifteen million people by 2018. The portfolio has focused on scaling and expanding access to a broad range of financial services. To ensure that scale if effectively and efficiently reached, the Foundation has also supported the development of institutional capacity, while simultaneously supporting financial capability at the client level to ensure responsible usage of financial services. Furthermore, as a learning institution, the Foundation funds the generation and dissemination of monitoring and evaluation analysis to guide future programming and to benefit the wider financial inclusion industry. THE POSITION: Reporting to the Deputy Director of the Financial Inclusion Program and working collaboratively with colleagues in the foundation, the Program Manager will identify and evaluate opportunities that advance the Foundation's strategy. The successful candidate will have expertise and experience and bring fresh ideas to solve current challenges facing the financial sector in Africa. The Program Manager will be responsible for a portfolio of approximately $75 million in programs and partnerships. He/She will be expected to interact effectively with senior levels of partner organizations and work collaboratively to co-develop projects. Each member of the team will have an annual set of targets and goals for programming. As such, the successful candidate in this position must be highly motivated, entrepreneurial, and results-oriented. He/She will have strong listening skills and ability to build deep and effective relationships with partners. Specific Responsibilities: Specifically, the Program Manager will: Identify, develop and recommend projects for funding. This work includes conducting field visits and due diligence of potential partners and projects, and reviewing project design and budgets. Monitor and manage a portfolio of approximately $75 million in projects. Communicate progress and learnings from projects to colleagues and the wider development community. Build relationships with partner organizations and global stakeholders. Collaborate with Foundation team to expand the organization's knowledge base, develop new ideas and review and evolve program strategy. Provide perspective and expertise on emerging issues and trends in the field of financial inclusion. Work closely with the youth learning program team leveraging synergies between the two programs. THE PERSON: QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE: The ideal candidate should have the following qualifications: Significant experience in financial inclusion is required. This experience could include project management, field experience and/or experience in philanthropy working in developing countries. Experience working to expand financial inclusion to rural and agricultural households will be highly valued. A successful track record of managing multiple projects and building partnerships.

Fluency in other languages relevant to the work, particularly French, is also desirable. Experience living and working in Africa is highly desirable. Experience with global grant making.
