We are looking for 12 young professionals with no more than five years of professional experience to form a Junior Global Advisory Panel. Members can be from any region in the world and from varying professional backgrounds (academia, industry, government and practitioners). Suitable areas of expertise would be water resources, WASH, wastewater, health, agriculture, poverty, garment industries, refugees, or gender.
The Junior Global Advisory Panel will complement the Global Advisory Panel which consists of globally-recognised practitioners, scientists, enterprises and policy-makers (see the People page and filter by Role), and provides objective and expert oversight of the programme design and delivery.
The Junior Global Advisory Panel will provide strategic and independent advice, acting as the creative engine and ambassador of the REACH programme. Members will:
- suggest innovative strategic directions and novel delivery methods through critical review of workplans, diagnostic reports and science plans as well as through interactive discussions
- promote and enhance the visibility of the programme among young water professionals via various concerted communication activities.
Appointments will be for an initial two-year term, and members will be required to attend a meeting twice a year. See the Terms of Reference.
To apply, please complete the online application form. Each applicant will be requested to submit a CV, personal statement and a short letter of recommendation from a referee.
The deadline for applications is 22 July 2016.
