After years of proven success, Rare is opening two new offices in Colombia (in Cali and Bogota) and is building a local team, creating an immediate opening for a Vice President. The Vice President has overall responsibility for leadership and management of the Colombia program, and is a critical representative for Rare on a global level.
A successful applicant will be an entrepreneurial and inspirational leader, as well as a manager who can both operate at high levels and be willing to roll up his or her sleeves and dig into the details.
Major responsibilities include the development, management, and implementation of Rare’s Colombia Country Program, with a focus on scaling up its watershed protection methodology throughout key regions of the country. The candidate is fully responsible for the program’s revenues and costs, team management, private and public-sector relations, and serving as the key representative of the Colombia program within Rare.
As part of the role, the candidate will be expected to lead the development of blended or sustainable finance solutions that will lead to the funding of the program at scale, by engaging the private sector and developing “investable” solutions for climate-smart, watershed protection.
This is an outstanding opportunity for an executive with a proven record of success in growing and managing a business or business unit, hands-on product development and operational experience, and a problem-solving mentality to join in a high-growth, mission-driven organization.
