Job Ref: 25650BR
Job Category: Management consultancy, Urban Development, International development
- Mott MacDonald's International Development Services Unit, IDS, operates within the international development sectors of Environment and Water, Education, Health and Social and Economic Development with a particular focus currently on Urban Development and Transportation.
- Together we implement and manage projects and programmes in developing countries and emerging economies around the world. We are committed to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to provide our expertise to help improving lives of people in need.
- To promote sustainable economic development, we work with a large number of International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and donor agencies such as the World Bank, the Asian and African Development Banks, the European Commission and its various organisations (e.g. EBRD, EIB), UN agencies, the German Government and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
- IDS recruits for a wide range of project assignments in the area of International Development. We are involved in more than 90 projects in over 40 countries in Central and Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
- We are currently preparing for and tracking numerous project opportunities specifically in the area of Secondary City infrastructure.
- We therefore seek to build relationships with freelance consultants aiming to have technical inputs to projects which incorporate this activity.
- Secondary cities are growing the most but with fewer capacities to plan and manage urban development and promote employment and economic growth. Due to their sheer growing number, it is systems of secondary cities, such as cities with fewer than one million inhabitants, that will have a greater influence upon the future economic development of nations and larger geographic regions.
- Globally, there are more than 2,400 cities in the world with populations between 150,000 and 5 million which could be loosely described as secondary cities. Nearly two thirds of these are located in Africa and Asia. Secondary cities range in form and size from 150,000 to 5 million people and perform a wide range of functions in national and international systems of cities.
- Secondary cities will play an important role as catalysts and secondary hubs in facilitating the localised production, transportation, transformation, or transfer of goods, people, trade, information, and services between sub-national, metropolitan, national, regional, and global systems of cities. They will likely demonstrate the presence of industry agglomeration and clusters; a system of well-developed, localised supply chains and networks; a diversified economic and employment base; and a broad housing mix.
- You will be an experienced International Development consultant with proven technical skills in the above areas gained form implementing projects in country funded by donors such as DFID, ADB, EU, WB etc.
- You will be up to date on current policy in the area.
- We are ideally looking for individuals with specific practical experience of;
- Working at ministerial level (eg capacity building, systems development, policy development)
- Project Management (Team Leader, Resident Engineer, budget control)
