- Program Specialist, USA
The Open Society Foundations seeks a Program Specialist to provide support to U.S. Programs, and specifically to its Democracy Team.
OSF is comprised of regional and thematic programs. U.S. Programs is one of its regional foundations. It works to advance equality, fairness, and justice with a focus on the most vulnerable and marginalized communities and the most significant threats to open society in the U.S. The Program aims for the full political, economic, and civic participation of immigrants and communities of color; a fair criminal justice system; and an economy that promotes equitable growth and development, and the just redistribution of resources.
U.S. Programs works in thematic teams, which include a Democracy team. This team seeks to promote an informed and engaged public, assure responsive, effective and accountable government, and advance political equality. More specifically, the team supports: journalism and digital rights work to increase access to high-quality information that would further public discourse and debate; work to ensure equal access to the vote; efforts to address corruption and to ensure government is accountable to the people, and to affirm the rule of law and keep courts impartial and independent. Current issues on our radar include the debate over the practices and regulation of platforms like Facebook, campaigns to push back against specious claims of “voter fraud” that disenfranchise voters of color, and efforts to ensure that the Supreme Court isn’t stacked with extremist judges for the next generation.
The Democracy team includes a Director, Senior Program Officer, two Program Officers, and one Program Specialist, employs multiple tools to accomplish its work, including grantmaking, support for programmatic advocacy, litigation, communications and organizing.

Developing the attendee list, concept, agenda, key players, etc. for convenings, research initiatives, and advocacy efforts.
Contributing to assessment of organizations. This includes primary responsibility for the assessment of organizational finances and budgets (including grant budgets).
Partnering closely with other U.S. Programs staff to ensure efficient flow of grants processing and other similar information.
May provide support in the area of learning design for benefit of the whole team.
Participate in preparing and presenting portfolio reviews.
3-5 years of progressively responsible experience in a situation relevant to the duties of this role is typically required to develop the skills required for this role.
Knowledgeable on issues of interest to OSF generally, and in particular as they relate to the designated area of specialization.
Highly skilled in researching, processing large amounts of information, and analyzing its importance in informing OSF programs and strategies.
Ability to recognize and work effectively in compliance with internal policies and external constraints.
