Concern Worldwide is an international humanitarian organization committed to the relief, assistance and advancement of the poorest people in the least developed countries of the world. Founded in Ireland in 1968, Concern Worldwide has nearly 4,000 personnel working in 24 countries across the globe. Concern believes in a world where no one lives in fear; where all have access to a decent standard of living and the opportunities essential to a long, healthy and creative life. Our mission is to help people living in absolute poverty achieve major improvements in their lives, improvements that are sustainable without ongoing support from Concern.
Concern Worldwide US is an independent affiliate of Concern Worldwide, with offices in New York and Chicago. Our mandate is to support the work of Concern Worldwide by financially supporting programs, representing Concern with national/international co-funders and organizations, facilitating the recruitment of personnel and raising the organization’s profile. Concern Worldwide US also engages in development education programs with the general public and with high schools in the US.
Concern US has a growing portfolio of US Government-funded programs, which is currently comprised of awards from USAID, including the Office of US-Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) and Food for Peace (FFP), as well as from the US Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM).
Concern Worldwide US seeks a highly motivated team player to help us raise new funds and expand our partnership with the US government to maintain and expand Concern Worldwide’s global humanitarian, emergency response, and development programs. While this is a fixed-term position for six months (with potential for transition to full-time dependent upon funding), it is an exciting opportunity to learn the US government funding process, especially for emergency response programming. The Temporary Business Development Coordinator (6 Month Fixed-Term) will play a key role in a small but highly effective Business Development unit on the International Programs team in New York. This is a full-time, fixed term position.
