ABOUT THE ARTISANAL GOLD COUNCIL
The Artisanal Gold Council (AGC) is a not-for-profit organization based in Victoria, Canada. The AGC is dedicated to improving the opportunities, environment, and health of the millions of people involved in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) in the developing world. Led by a multidisciplinary team of experts, the AGC is one of the few agencies in the world that has the sustainable development of the ASGM sector as its core mission.
Established in 2007, the AGC is known for innovation. We develop practical solutions to the challenges of the sector based on our deep field experience in artisanal and small-scale mining communities. The AGC employs an integrated approach to our programs focused on improved practices, governance, health, the environment, gender, markets and livelihoods.
The AGC is a fast-growing organization that is currently implementing projects in over a dozen countries around the world. For more, visit: www.artisanalgold.org
The Asia Projects Manager (APM) will serve in a senior role within the organization and will be directly responsible for the successful delivery of parallel projects in East and Southeast Asia that have the reduction of mercury use in the ASGM sector as a goal. In addition to providing overall direction and oversight for the projects, the APM will ensure the achievement of project results while effectively managing project budgets, resources and timelines.
Working in Victoria, BC, and leveraging a successful career-to-date in managing large scale, complex development projects, the APM will work within the existing framework of AGC policies and practices, as well as ensuring the project follows funder guidelines. The APM will report directly to the AGC Director of Programs and will be required to work in close collaboration with country managers and staff in E. and S.E. Asia.
