As Country Representative you will lead, manage and advance the programming and operations objectives and the mission of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) to serve the poor and vulnerable. Your strategic leadership will enable you to advance CRS' reputation and impact while you proactively manage security and mitigate security risks and liabilities.
CRS began operating in Guatemala in 1963 and today works with a wide group of Church, civil society, private sector and government actors on projects and interventions that build local capacity and skills to promote sustainable impact in the areas of agricultural livelihoods; integral childhood and youth development; emergency response, recovery, mitigation, and resiliency; as well we focus on local institutional development to positively influence governments and multi-lateral institutions in the United States and Guatemala to adopt policies that protect and support the poorest and most vulnerable. The funding portfolio is largely USG sourced, though with a growing leverage of private sector and municipal support. CRS Guatemala also provides oversight and support for CRS' program in Mexico.
These are rooted in the mission, values, and guiding principles of CRS and used by each staff member to fulfill his or her responsibilities and achieve the desired results.
