PPL is the technical and operational home for the Agency’s 350+ Foreign Service Program Officer (BS 02) Backstop. Program Officers (POs) serve in 40+ USAID Missions around the world and lead the Agency on strategic planning, project design, monitoring and evaluation, and resource management. As a Program Analyst on the BS 02 Team, you will provide support for the recruitment, assignments, training and career management of BS-02 Program Officers to strengthen their leadership role in advancing USAID’s mission in the field.
You will liaise with PPL/PO’s Administrative Management Services team, PPL offices (Policy; Strategic and Program Planning; Learning, Evaluation and Research; Program; and Development Cooperation), the Agency’s Human Capital and Talent Management (HCTM) office, and other bureaus throughout the Agency as necessary to support these efforts. Overall, you will serve as an advocate for POs by working to institutionalize their professional development, strengthen PO competencies, and advance the critical role of Program Officers in the Agency.
A successful candidate will be extremely organized and detail oriented and have experience in program logistics, event planning, training development, and communications.
