Solidarity Center seeks a seasoned Organizing Director to support critical Organizing and Bargaining (O&B) work in Cambodia - one of our largest field offices. This includes managing relationships with relevant stakeholders on the ground and around the world. This individual is responsible for coordinating O&B initiatives, including multinational campaigns, with partner unions in Cambodia. As the Senior Specialist for Organizing and Bargaining, this individual helps to develop and implement programs supporting workers and unions in Cambodia, often in collaboration with the AFL-CIO, U.S. unions, and the Global Union Federations (GUFs).
The successful candidate must be thoroughly conversant with all aspects of Organizing and Bargaining and must become familiar with Solidarity Center programs and relevant political, economic, social, and trade union developments in Cambodia and Southeast Asia. The Senior Organizer must have sound judgment and keen political sense, particularly in managing relationships with stakeholders. Working knowledge of and experience in U.S. Government regulations and procedures related to the funding and management of grants is also useful.
The Senior Organizer monitors programs to measure and evaluate progress and ensure budgetary compliance. This individual also informs the CPD about significant Organizing and Bargaining developments in the country through meetings, reports and other communication as required.
The Senior Organizer coordinates this area of work with relevant U.S. unions, the ITUC and its regional organizations, and global union federations. This individual also works with field office staff to provide logistical support for relevant visitors from the Solidarity Center, AFL-CIO, U.S. unions, GUFs, donors, and other organizations. This position includes representing the Solidarity Center and the AFL-CIO in public and private meetings with partners and other national and international organizations, including donors. This individual will need to travel extensively within the region (based on the lifting of pandemic restrictions and confirmation of safe conditions on the ground). The Senior Organizer may be reassigned to another country in the region if needs shift.
This position reports to the Director of Trade Union Strengthening but coordinates closely with the Regional Program Director for Asia and with the Country Program Director in Cambodia.
