Partnership Officer

The European Institute of Cooperation and Development (IECD) is a French non-governmental organization founded in 1988 and operating in the field of social and economic development in partnership with local institutions in the countries where it has been involved.

IECD bases its actions on a comprehensive approach to a person. We do this as we believe that well educated people, on an academic, technical, social and human level, will build not only a better community for themselves and their family, but also for their community and for society as a whole. IECD encourages the youth, parents, professionals and locally-based development actors to play a responsible and active civic role.

IECD’s main sectors of action are vocational training and professional integration, assistance to micro and small enterprises and access to education and health for the most vulnerable. In Vietnam IECD runs 4 projects: Support to Small and Micro enterprises with a specific focus on street vendors, 2 Social Training Enterprises in Bakery and Pastry based in HCMC and Hue and a Vocational Training Program in Electricity and Automotive.


Under the supervision of ASSET-H&C project manager, the partnership officer will support the association in increasing its impact by developing new partnerships with organizations that share the same objective of supporting vulnerable populations.

Two kinds of partnerships are particularly considered:

  1. With organizations that could contribute their expertise or resources to ASSET-H&C network and would consequently support the network in continuously improving the quality of service provided to its members.
  2. With organizations that would benefit from the expertise of ASSET-H&C. Through such collaboration the network could impact more beneficiaries.

The partnership officer will mainly focus on the following tasks:

  1. Capacity Building in a variety of fields(E.g., Environmental sustainability, gender, social entrepreneurship, …).

Support activities aimed at consolidating the expertise of ASSET-H&C and its members to help leverage such expertise beyond the network.

Coordinate the delivery of capacity building activities for members and subsequently for partners beyond the network.
