SENIOR MANAGER, US PROGRAMS

Country: United States of America
Organization: CARE USA
Closing date: 29 Sep 2021

CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in more than 90 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from clean water to access to education; from microfinance to ensuring that everyone has nutritious food; from agriculture and climate change to disaster response. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because they have proven to be the best hope for creating lasting change in the world. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for over 70 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and fight with CARE.

CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We are known everywhere for our unshakeable commitment to the dignity of people. CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice. In 2019, CARE launched the Atlanta Global Innovation Hub and subsequently, its first US-based programming. Though CARE has been in the US for nearly 75 years, our relationship to America’s direct service ecosystem has been limited. CARE has over 75 years of expertise and experience in the fight to end poverty worldwide -- with expertise ranging from sexual and reproductive rights to economic justice and financial inclusion; from inclusive governance to climate change resilience and adaptation; and from education to food justice and land rights -- and beyond.

CARE is now in the process of expanding its presence in the US. Our focus will continue to center women and girls and put emphasis on racial justice in the US context. The US Programs Team seeks to expand CARE’s presence in strategic US cities, as CARE continues to fight poverty wherever it exists. The Senior Manager of US Programs will be a vital member of the US Program team working directly with the founding Associate Vice President/Director and overseeing CARE’s Community Trust (savings and lending) program in the US as it expands and moves into its “proof of concept” phase. The Senior Manager will operate with a large degree of autonomy and make decisions that advance the team’s overall goals. They will also play a central role in many aspects of the US Program.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelors or master’s degree in relevant areas
