Work with One South

As a part of an OS Team, you are engaged in solving complex research and operational challenges in a collaborative and stimulating environment. Data collectors, operational support staff, and consultants work together to find ways to establish common ground and fulfill research objectives. This requires OS team members to be critical thinkers, flexible, and reflective.

At One South, we regularly provide peer-to-peer coaching and workshops to communicate best practices and inquire into the personal and professional goals of our consultants. Our Board of Advisors are leading professionals in their own fields and provide executive coaching to enrich the knowledge-base of our teams and help them strategize.

If you are interested to build a career in development consulting or management or wish to join our network of data collectors, we invite you to fill out our application form and form part of our pool of talent. We will contact and interview successful candidates over the year and often recruit for specific assignments
