United States Agency for International Development/Bureau of Africa/Sustainability and Development/Education Division
Application Deadline: n/a
The Bureau for Africa (AFR) is the USAID/Washington operating unit charged with managing USAID economic development programs in Africa. The Office of Sustainable Development has the responsibility of providing technical support for these programs. AFR/SD’s technical responsibilities span across all areas of economic development – economic growth, agriculture, the environment, global climate change, biodiversity, water, democracy and governance, education and health. In providing technical support AFR/SD has articulated three development objectives – (1) generating new ideas to improve these development programs, (2) influencing USAID missions in Africa, African governments and development partners to improve their policies and programs by using better information, and (3) strengthening the capacity of African institutions to develop and implement evidence-based policies.
The Program Assistant will provide support for SD/ED. As a critical member of the AFR/SD/ED Washington DC office, the incumbent will work closely with both SD/ED management and the full technical staff. The incumbent, under the supervision of the AFR/SD/ED Division Chief or her designee, will work with all SD/ED technical staff. The Program Assistant provides support to technical staff, performing a variety of both complex and routine administrative and analytical duties. These duties range from administrative-type tasks such as scheduling briefings and meetings, arranging travel and maintaining program files, to more complex analytical-type tasks such as collecting, compiling, and analyzing data for various program documents and designing and maintaining spreadsheets in support of tracking systems. The Program Assistant ranks tasks in order of importance and impending deadlines, and handles several tasks simultaneously. The individual must develop a working knowledge of USAID policies and guidelines, as well as corporate practices and procedures.
To perform this job successfully, an individual must be able to perform each essential duty satisfactorily.
