Job Opportunity for Manager – Finance & Admin New Delhi at STIR Education in New Delhi

Website STIR Education


Education systems today must prepare every child, everywhere, to thrive in a world of ‘unknown unknowns’. Children and young people today face a world of ‘unknown unknowns’. To succeed, they need to develop a love of learning which has been recognised in the development plans of many emerging countries.

STiR is an international NGO that partners with governments to reignite intrinsic motivation in teachers and officials, to role-model the foundations of lifelong learning for every child through teacher networks. Our vision is a world where teachers love teaching and children love learning. We’ve identified five core foundations that enable lifelong learning – namely safety, engagement, curiosity and critical thinking, self-esteem, intentional teaching. These foundations are supported by a deep body of global evidence.

In our sixth full year of operations, we are working with 200,000 teachers and 4.7 million children across 60 districts in India and Uganda. Over time, we expect to see officials and school leaders developing the foundations of lifelong learning. They will spend more time in schools supporting and understanding teachers. And recognise their crucial role in driving improvements. We have developed an innovative set of measurement tools – in partnership with groups like the World Bank – to measure this progress on a monthly basis through a data app, and through an annual external longitudinal research study led by a leading JPAL affiliate professor.

Other organisations are doing great work on direct training programmes and curriculum reform. From reading programmes to adaptive learning software, these ‘seeds’ will be essential in improving education systems. But there are almost no interventions that focus on the ‘soil’ – the intrinsic motivation of teachers and officials in systems. At STiR, we recognise that this soil is just as important. Without fertile soil, seeds cannot grow and flourish. It’s our unique contribution to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4.


How we approach our work is as important as what we do and our core values guide the way:

Humility – We don’t have all the answers upfront.

Ownership – We empower each other with high expectations & support.

Openness – We will listen, learn and improve, and lead through obstacles.

Purpose – We’re united by a shared vision we’ll build & achieve together.
