The NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights is seeking a Senior Program Manager to lead its work on human rights challenges in the construction industry. The Senior Program Manager will oversee the Center’s ongoing work which seeks to address exploitative practices relating to the recruitment of construction workers from South Asia to the Gulf. They will conduct independent fieldwork, following up on the Center’s 2017 report “Making Workers Pay”, and organize stakeholder convenings aimed at improving the recruitment system in Gulf countries. To publicize the Center’s findings, the Senior Program Manager will be expected to write research papers, op-eds and blog posts.
In each area where we work, the Center undertakes cutting-edge research to identify root causes of persistent human rights challenges resulting from business practices at an industry level. Drawing on this research, the Center provides realistic but ambitious recommendations and works closely with stakeholders to implement solutions. The Senior Program Manager will support our ongoing strategic research and advocacy relating to business practices in the construction sector, while also helping the Center evolve its focus to address the rights of migrant workers in other industries and regions.
