About the Role

The Deputy Managing Editor provides hands-on daily leadership and support to the globally distributed Instructional Design department.
Reporting to and working very closely with the Managing Editor, the Deputy Managing Editor enables the success of the Instructional Design department by building strong teams and team leaders, while working on a wide range of projects and initiatives related to product quality, project management, people management, and department culture.

What You Will Do

Support the Managing Editor in the daily operations of the Instructional Design department, with a focus on generating new courses and assessments for states in Nigeria
Directly manage three Instructional Design managers in Lagos, coaching and developing them and their teams
Execute Instructional Design and interdepartmental initiatives, under the direction of the Managing Editor, including responsibility for a specific Instructional Design location, territory, or project

Other duties as assigned

What You Should Have

A deep knowledge of instructional design, and the types of projects, processes, and places we work with
Excellent organizational and project management skills
A collegial attitude and demonstrated ability (and genuine enjoyment) for working to develop a diverse and globally distributed team
Substantial people management experience
Maturity and discretion in handling personnel issues and other sensitive information
Flexibility around rapidly changing priorities and projects, and an ability to communicate the same to Instructional Design team members

You’re also:

A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
A networking mastermind – You excel at meeting new people and turning them into advocates. You communicate in a clear, conscientious, and effective way in both written and oral speech. You can influence strangers in the course of a single conversation. Allies and colleagues will go to bat for your ideas. You have an existing network from prior experience in the country, preferably in the regulatory, education, or business sectors.
A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, NewGlobe works in often fragile, sometimes volatile low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
A relentless advocate –The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience,

and value.
A malleable learner –You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way, and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder, and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
