The National Democratic Institute (NDI) seeks a Program Director with excellent management skills and extensive experience to lead the implementation of an anticipated five-year USAID Sawt Civil Society Strengthening Activity in Jordan. The program will aim to position Jordanian civil society and media to actively and effectively represent and advocate on behalf of citizen-driven interests. The Program Director’s experience should include providing assistance to civil society groups, particularly related to encouraging political participation and inclusion of women, youth, and other traditionally excluded groups as citizens.
The Program Director will oversee all aspects of programmatic, staff and office management, including the implementation of program activities, managing grants, providing leadership to a team of Jordanian staff, and ensuring compliance with NDI and donor procurement and financial policies and procedures. The Program Director serves as the project’s principal contact point for USAID/Jordan and oversees all aspects of program performance.
The Program Director will be based in Amman. This position works closely with Washington-based program staff and management who manage communications and provide overall strategic guidance and support for country office activities. The Program Director reports to the Senior Country Director for Jordan.
