DAI International Job Vacancy: Investment Specialist, Jakarta


The USAID Jalin Project (hereafter referred to as “Jalin” or the “Project”) is a five-year initiative implemented by DAI Global, LLC and its consortium of partners – IntraHealth, Vital Strategies, and Market Share Associates. Through Jalin, USAID’s role as a development partner in Indonesia is shifting from funding the implementation of specific interventions to facilitating and supporting partnerships through a co-creation process across a variety of stakeholders to catalyze local solutions, leverage public and private financing, and increase the pace at which reliable local evidence is made widely available and utilized

During year one of the activity, Jalin works in six provinces of Indonesia: Banten, West Java, Central Java, East Java, North Sumatra, and South Sulawesi. Jalin will partner with multistakeholder actors to co-create and co-invest in sustainable evidence-based solutions aimed at reducing maternal and newborn mortality.

The Investment Specialist supports Jalin’s efforts to engage, network and negotiate partnerships with a variety of stakeholders comprising a whole-of-market approach, which includes commercial enterprises, banks, private equity, angel investors, and investment firms, state-owned companies, and other GOI sources of funding, to actively co-create and co-invest in scalable local solutions for reduced maternal and neonatal mortality in Indonesia. Success of these efforts is to be measured by such indicators as: (a) total amount of funding leveraged from GOI sources; (b) total amount of financing, whether quantifiable or in-kind support, leveraged from private sector sources; (c) total amount of domestic resources mobilized; and (d) percentage of local solutions that are partially or wholly funded/financed by non-U.S. Government funds.
