In an increasingly complex and interconnected world, Asia plays a crucial global role. Would you be excited at the prospect of employing your knowledge and skills to improve lives, expand opportunities, and help societies flourish across this dynamic region?
You could have this opportunity at The Asia Foundation. Informed by six decades of experience and deep local expertise, we address critical issues affecting Asia in the 21st century: governance and law, economic development, women’s empowerment, environment, and international cooperation. We work with innovative leaders and communities to build effective institutions and advance path-breaking reforms. Together with our partners, we are committed to Asia’s continued development as a peaceful, just, and thriving region of the world.
The Asia Foundation’s Myanmar office is seeking a program manager for the Peace Support Program to be based in Yangon (Covid-19 travel conditions permitting). The program manager leads a team which implements a wide range of activities to support and build understanding of Myanmar’s transition to peace and stability. The Manager is responsible for the day-to-day leadership and operation of Peace Support projects, ensures effective planning, implementation and monitoring of the Foundation’s Peace Support programming, and is responsible for ensuring compliance with donor and the Foundation regulations, agreement provisions, reporting and other deadlines, and budgetary monitoring.
You will have the opportunity to contribute to development in Myanmar and, more broadly, to the development, stability, and growth of the dynamic Asian region. You will help promote a more effective and constructive engagement between government and citizens, strengthen the role of women and minorities, and advance learning and awareness about the country. In Myanmar, other Asian countries, and with headquarters, you will work with and learn from dedicated, smart, and accomplished colleagues, program partners, and local leaders. In the process, you will improve your skills and grow as a development professional.
