ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
Internews is seeking a Chief of Party candidate for the USAID Civil Society and Media - Strengthened Together and Advancing in New Directions - STAND (CSM-STAND) program, which has an operational focus on two regions: Africa and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The goal of CSM-STAND is to strengthen local, regional, and cross-regional approaches to foster independent civic forces, enhance civic engagement, and build vibrant, resilient and self-reliant civil society and media sectors. The Chief of Party will provide strategic guidance and leadership for Internews' program; coordinate technical and professional capacity-building assistance for media and civil society partners and beneficiaries; ensure proper oversight of program personnel, sub-grants, financial management, and administration policies; and ensure that Internews leverages other resources, avoids duplication and complements other media and civil society development initiatives. The Chief of Party will be expected to interact regularly with a diverse range of actors such as program staff, USAID/DRG staff, USAID Mission staff, civil society organizations, independent media organizations, private sector actors, other donors, and all program stakeholders and beneficiaries.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Internews' Headquarters offices are currently closed, and until the situation meaningfully changes, staff are working remotely. Ultimately, this position may be based in either our Washington, D.C. headquarters office, in one of Internews' Middle East and North Africa (MENA) or Africa offices, or remotely within the Africa or MENA region.
Wherever possible, we work to try to find solutions for international hiring that work for both the company and the candidate. This means that some of the particulars around the offer for a role will depend on several factors, and that the benefits and salary structure that apply to a position will ultimately be based upon the candidate's location and where the role is hired. We will also consider remote applicants; however, you must have work authorization in your location that does not require sponsorship from Internews. Additionally, there are locations in which Internews is not able to support fully remote work.
Note: This position is contingent upon receipt of funding.

We are an organization of dynamic, mission-driven individuals who are passionate about our core values and about supporting positive change in the world.
