Company Description
We are a global team of experts and innovators tackling some of the world’s most pressing health challenges. We work with leaders and change makers around the globe to bring health strategies to life. We provide ideas, advice and technical know-how that enable our partners to build a path to lasting change.

With 30 years’ experience in global health, we collaborate with our partners to explore existing evidence, combine expertise, scale up ideas and co-create solutions that accelerate change. This includes collaborating on policy design, managing initiatives, building powerful coalitions and galvanising social movements. Our impact is felt across whole communities, with a focus on women, girls and those who have been marginalised.

As part of MSI Reproductive Choices, all our profits go back into supporting MSI’s own mission of children by choice, not chance.

We believe in a world where everyone can access the high-quality health services they need, without financial burden.

Options is a team of experts and innovators tackling some of the world’s most pressing health challenges. We are seeking a consultant to help us develop a new range of consultancy services, building on our current expertise, tools and systems, but deploying them in new ways, for a new range of clients, requiring adaptations to our current business model.

The consultant will develop a New Service Development Plan, including a business case outlining the investment required to launch and establish the new service. To achieve this, the consultant is expected to familiarise themselves with Options’ current business model as well as existing planning and research behind the new service. They will critically interrogate plans for the new service so far, pose additional questions and make recommendations for strengthening and/or clarifying the service. The consultant will then develop a New Service Development Plan for the new service, in collaboration with the relevant parts of the business (including Business Growth and Technical Departments, and the Programme Resource Unit). The consultant is expected to consult across Options’ global departments/team leads, and with leads in key country offices (particularly Nigeria and Kenya). The majority of the assignment will be conducted virtually, with in-person meetings in Options’ country offices (e.g. London, Nairobi, or Abuja) if feasible depending on the consultant’s location.

To succeed in this role, you will have:

Relevant professional qualification or equivalent professional experience, e.g.MBA
Experience developing strategy/business plans for global/multi-country businesses including those working in low- and middle-income countries
Familiarity with the global health and international development sector (including donors, foundations, governments)
Successful track record of working consultatively with organisations to deliver similar assignments, with at least two references
