This senior position is responsible for providing strategic leadership and vision for all Freedom House (FH) activities in and related to Latin America, primarily on-the-ground donor-funded programming activities, but also policy research and advocacy, in line with FH’s mission and strategic framework. The position requires a candidate with deep knowledge of democracy and governance issues throughout the region, relationships there (including with civil society organizations (CSOs), government entities, the diplomatic community, etc.), and relationships with relevant USG entities (including USG donors supporting democracy programs in the region). These qualifications must be combined with a proven record of: designing and implementing innovative USG-funded democracy programming throughout the region that produces verifiable results; designing and carrying out successful policy research and policy advocacy initiatives before the U.S. Congress and executive branch; and effectively leading and managing diverse staff, including overseas operations.
