KIT Royal Tropical Institute is a non-for-profit organization that aims to enhance the positive impact of agencies, governments and corporations on sustainable development in low-and middle-income countries. Using the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a general framework for action, we translate practice into knowledge, and apply this knowledge to achieve the aims of the SDGs. We are able to achieve this by exercising the knowledge we gain in advisory services, research, teaching, training, dialogue and discussions. The Institute also runs a hotel and a restaurant, and offers office space and conference facilities on its premises.

Working as a project officer, you will be managing the acquisition process from lead to submission, working with advisors in assemble proposals and drafting budgets. When acquisitions are successful you will be reviewing agreements, negotiating with partners and positioning yourself as a point of contact for partners of all sorts. In general you are the ‘spider in its web’.
