Program Assistant, Pacific RISE-CTIP, Pacific Islands
This position is open to qualified Fiji nationals, or Pacific Islanders who are eligible to work from Fiji.
In an increasingly complex and changing world, we believe that a peaceful and engaged Asia is of critical global importance. 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. Informed by six decades of experience and deep local expertise, The Asia Foundation’s programs in 18 countries address critical issues affecting Asia in the 21st century: governance and law, economic development, women’s empowerment, environment, and regional cooperation.
One of our major programs in the Pacific Islands is the Pacific Regional Initiative and Support for More Effective Counter Trafficking in Persons (Pacific RISE-CTIP), a five-year project implemented by The Asia Foundation with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Pacific RISE-CTIP aims to address trafficking in persons (TIP) through a multi-sectoral approach engaging an inclusive cross-section of stakeholders from government, civil society, and the private sector to strengthen TIP prevention, protection, and prosecution.
Pacific RISE-CTIP is seeking applications from qualified Fiji nationals or Pacific Islanders who are eligible to work from Fiji, for the position of program assistant. The successful recruit is expected to closely coordinate and liaise with Pacific RISE-CTIP’s partner organizations, consultants, and other stakeholders to ensure alignment with program objectives, timely delivery of outputs, and compliance with Asia Foundation rules on expenditures and overall program management. They are also expected to coordinate with the Foundation’s Finance and Administration unit on all logistical, administrative, and financial aspects of program and grants management related to the project.
