Mission: Counterpart partners with local organizations - formal and informal - to build inclusive, sustainable communities in which their people thrive.
I have been working at Counterpart International full-time (More than a year)
The Counterpart mission is clear - empower leaders and communities to work in partnership with government and private sector to address their greatest challenges. I am passionate about this mission and enjoy working with all my colleagues to achieve this. The leadership at CPI makes a lot of space for me to work, take initiative and achieve our goals. The field teams are strong and a great asset. Finance, IT, Comms and HR are all great supporters of mission.
A few colleagues fall back on old habits learned when Counterpart was smaller, with fewer resources and able to function with very few systems. A few teams choose to compete rather than collaborate.
Advice to Management
Require sound programming based on clear and rigorous theories of change and good development not just what gets money moving. Be clear with expectations and make sure behavior matches our values - even if it is difficult.
I applied online. I interviewed at Counterpart International (Washington, DC) in July 2016.
I had a screening interview with a recruiter, a written test, and another interview with the development team. I then was told I was moving forward with a second interview with management and to prepare a 15 minute presentation about a hypothetical project. However, despite being told I would be contacted the following week to set up a time to present, they never contacted me again. I emailed all the contacts I had been given (three by that point) several weeks later, and no one bothered to even return the emails. I could not believe how unprofessional and inconsiderate this hiring team was, and would absolutely never work for this organization or recommend that someone waste their time interviewing with them.
