Position description

The Open Contracting Partnership is a silo-busting global not-for-profit collaboration between governments, businesses, civil society and technologists to open up government contracting and deal-making through better disclosure, data and engagement. We do this so that the huge sums of money involved are spent honestly, fairly and effectively. We work across sectors and along the whole process of government contracting to use the power of open data to save governments money and time, deliver better goods and services to citizens, prevent corruption and create a better business environment for all.

We are a small team based out of Washington, D.C. that supports a growing number of partners implementing open contracting worldwide in over 50 countries. With our regional office in Bogotá, Colombia, we are supporting Latin America.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a motivated, talented professional to join us as a Latin America Communications Consultant. You will be working with a savvy, hard-working global team fostering innovation on, and implementation of, open contracting around the world. 

You will:

  1. Edit and produce original OCP content for Latin America in Spanish and English, making sure that this is compelling, smart, and clear.
  2. Tell inspiring stories about us, our amazing partners, and our impacts;
  3. Help implement our communications plan across all channels in Spanish;
  4. Manage OCP’s Spanish-language website and coordinate our day-to-day Spanish-language communication stream including our social media;
  5. Support media and partner relations in Latin America.


You should have a great existing track record of smart, savvy communications work with an existing network of contacts and great examples of your impact. You should be an excellent writer with a succinct, engaging style in Spanish as well as have an excellent ability to work in English. 

We love consultants that share our values and understand the world of development, anticorruption and, dare we wish, procurement. You should approach open contracting and how we communicate this admittedly dry subject with curiosity and a sense of fun. You should be interested in infusing our materials with fresh ideas and the boldness needed to further grow the impact of open contracting globally. 


Professional Qualifications

We want to be surprised, intrigued, and excited by applicants. We are looking for consultants that have: 

  • A demonstrated track record of at least five years of excellent public communications work and content creation;
  • A clear understanding of digital communications including various social media platforms and how to optimize them for OCP;
  • A proven record of engaging journalists;
  • Demonstrate a snappy and engaging writing style.
  • Demonstrated understanding of the world of development, anticorruption and if possible procurement.

Timeframe

The position is initially limited to 4 months for at least 2 days a week with potential for extension. Remuneration will be on a daily rate of $250-400 based on experience.
