Unlock Aid, a diverse and growing coalition of innovators rewriting the rules of global development to center equity, shift power and meaningfully improve the health and wellbeing of people and the planet, is hiring.
U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Samantha Power has outlined a bold vision for the future of global development, one focused on driving “Progress, Not Programs” and diversifying who the agency works with, including the direction of more funding to local organizations in the countries that USAID supports. We at Unlock Aid couldn’t agree more: with existential problems like climate change, global health threats, food and water crises, we need public institutions like USAID to meet this moment. But the window of time to enact big changes is rapidly closing. We need to act now.
That’s where you come in. Together with our incredible coalition partners, Unlock Aid is driving an aggressive agenda to hold USAID to its commitments, as well as working with Congress to give the agency the flexibility, budget and mandate to deliver greater impact.
We’re growing this movement and we need help. We are hiring for the following two roles:
- Full-time Communications and Research Director, based in Washington, DC (Application deadline: August 19, 2022)
- Full-time Operations Associate, based in Washington, DC (Application deadline: August 19, 2022)
We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible, but there is no penalty for those who wait until August 19. We’ll reach out to candidates to initiate first-round interviews during the week of August 22-26. You’ll hear from us by August 29 whether you’ve been invited to the first round or not.
