Resident Director -- NDI, Cambodia

 The National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) seeks a Resident Director to implement programs to strengthen accountability in Cambodian governance and politics. Specific areas of focus include 1) increasing the exposure of citizens to competing party policies and platforms; 2) building the capacity of civil society to oversee elections, including developing and advocating for electoral reform; and 3) increasing the transparency of Cambodian governance. This position will be based in Phnom Penh, and may require travel throughout the country. Approved candidates may have one adult dependent sponsored; expenses associated with minor dependents are not covered. Employment is contingent on funder approval.

This position will have supervisory responsibility for the design and implementation of all NDI programs in Cambodia.  The Resident Director will also represent NDI to the government of Cambodia, the US Embassy and USAID, and local and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs). 

Candidate will also be responsible for the overall management of the office, to include financial and human resource management. Close coordination will also be expected with NDI -Washington, including day-to-day contact with the Washington-based staff that provides oversight for field activities.

Since the beginning of the country’s democratic transition in 1992, NDI has partnered with Cambodians, their elected representatives, political parties and civil society organizations as they encourage more transparent governance and more inclusive political participation. NDI is currently implementing a five-year program in Cambodia, funded by USAID. The initiative aims to encourage public discourse and policy exchanges by bringing together elected representatives and their constituents in public dialogues on key issues. The Institute provides political parties opportunities to convey policy positions during public, multiparty discussions and candidate debates. NDI also supports Cambodian civil society efforts to monitor and report on elections and advocate for electoral reform.
