General description

Despite India’s rapid economic growth, there are still substantial development challenges in the poorer parts of India. DFID India is responsible for a programme of development cooperation with Indian partners worth £280 million per year. Focused mainly on the states of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, and West Bengal, the programme includes work in health, education, governance, infrastructure, rural livelihoods, and urban development. In all these areas, we focus particularly on women and girls. A new programme of work to support private sector development to deliver jobs, products, infrastructure and basic services is being designed. There is an innovative cross-departmental unit on climate change within DFID.
DFID India works in partnership with government, international organisations, civil society and private sector. The 90 staff based in our New Delhi office (co-location with the British High Commission is planned for 2012) work with the Government of India on nationwide programmes, and with governments in a number of states with particular poverty needs. The State Offices provide support and local knowledge.
The Strategy, Results and Communications team (SRC) sits at the centre of DFID India and has several key functions:

  1. It supports DFID India's strategic planning process and the coherent delivery of DFID India's programme and policy priorities.
  2. It provides high quality support to DFID-I’s Head of Office, high level visits, the Strategy Committee and Tuesday afternoon meetings (TAM).
  3. SRC drives DFID India’s adherence to, and delivery of DFID’s results agenda – ensuring that DFID’s programmes are having real impact.
  4. It leads on DFID India’s communications to maintain support for aid to India, and helps DFID India to manage its stakeholders in the UK and India.
  5. SRC leads on ensuring DFID India meets its corporate reporting requirements and compliance with corporate agendas including producing high quality, timely briefs, Parliamentary Questions and letters.

The post holder will support the SRC team to deliver on our results and corporate returns agenda, while also contributing to our stakeholder management processes through the production of high quality briefing and correspondence for various audiences.
