The National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) seeks a program director to lead two NDI programs in Sierra Leone, one funded by the National Endowment for Democracy and one funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The program director will work with civil society groups, political parties, and government officials to implement programs related to increasing dialogue among political parties, enhancing women’s participation in politics, supporting the nascent National Political Debates Committee, and building capacity of local government officials. In addition, this Freetown-based position would be responsible for overall office management, including overseeing grant funds and providing leadership to local staff. The program director will work closely with Washington-based program staff providing support and guidance for field activities, and report to the DC-based regional director for Central and West Africa.
Candidates must be legally eligible to work in Sierra Leone.
