Programs – Pact strives for a world where all people are heard, capable, and vibrant.
The Programs Team helps realize this objective by bridging program management, technical support, and business development, enabling Pact to achieve its global strategy.
We ensure program excellence through continuous learning, monitoring and evaluation and provide organizational and industry-wide thought leadership by leveraging a complementary set of cross-functional, multi-disciplinary skills, expertise, and experiences.

Across all aspects of its role, the Programs Department adheres to and promotes a culture of inclusion, accountability, and respect.

Position Overview

Pact is recruiting a Program Assistant for a one-year project focused on strengthening rural economic development and improving the commercial viability of mini-grids in Rivers State and Lagos State, Nigeria by supporting micro-enterprises’ transition from diesel generators to electric motors, mechanize of labor intensive activities, and start new enterprises that productively use energy. The project will be implemented from March 01, 2022 – January 31, 2023, with a possibility for extension and expansion. The Program Assistant will report and provide support to the project’s Program Officer.
The project will address four causes of limited demand for energy: 1) limited knowledge of productive use opportunities, including the economics of transitioning from diesel generators to electric motors; 2) limited business skills and financial literacy, which impedes small businesses from assessing the potential of productive use equipment to improve their operations; 3) supply chain and product quality challenges, and 4) to a varying extent, lack of financing options for purchasing productive use equipment. With Pact’s support, local economic activity, incomes, and demand for energy will increase, which will positively impact other socio-economic indicators in target villages, while increasing both the number of customers served by mini-grids as well as average revenue per user.
We envision that with project support, local economic activity, incomes, and demand for energy will increase, which will contribute to broad-based economic growth, while increasing both the number of customers served by mini-grids as well as average revenue per user.
