Acasus is a consultancy dedicated to helping governments implement transformational reforms in health and education. Our goal is to improve public health and education for those who need it the most. In just five years, Acasus has developed a strong reputation supporting governments across Asia, Africa and South America.
We are working on high-profile projects in the education and health sectors in Pakistan. We are rapidly expanding and also have ongoing projects in Mozambique, DRC and Ethiopia among others.
We offer high degrees of responsibility and autonomy and the opportunity to drive a truly impactful set of reforms. You will have a chance to help shape a growing, young, entrepreneurial company with a social mission.
We work in small teams which support the most senior officials in government (typically at ministerial or prime-ministerial level) to drive rapid health reforms. Much of our day-to-day work involves helping officials to:
Plan and develop strategies
Use data and other information
Build capacity and skills throughout the system
Improve coordination and cooperation
Solve problems and challenges as they arise
Access international evidence and lessons about what works
Acasus teams include a mix of experienced consultants from leading international consultancies and highly talented locally-hired staff. Our success depends on being able to attract good people, and then, more importantly, providing them with high quality professional development to enable them to quickly become effective. The work is varied and ranges from office-based policy & strategy development to ground level understanding and implementation in the field.
It is hard to overstate the potential impact of this work. In just Pakistan, our team achieved the fastest increase in immunization rate ever recorded — raising coverage of life-saving vaccines for the more than 2 million children born each year in Punjab from around 50% to 84%.
To date, our work in Pakistan has already been highly impactful in increasing the quality of Primary care and improving the health of mothers and children. We are expanding our team, looking for undergraduates or postgraduates with up to 5 years of working experience to assist in delivering our existing projects.
As an Associate Consultant you will support officials at central and provincial levels to implement a customised version of our reform model, which involves strengthening & analysing data that will enable rapid action to improve health outcomes and save lives.
You will help build on the existing insights and engagement to strengthen the health system at a national level and improve overall efficiency and effectiveness.
