Senior Program Officer

The Solidarity Center
District of Columbia

The Solidarity Center, founded in 1997 by the AFL-CIO to tackle the enormous challenges workers face in the global economy, now works with union and community group partners in more than 60 countries through a network of 26 field offices. This not-for-profit organization offers education, training, research, legal support, and organizing assistance to help build strong and effective trade unions and other workers’ organizations and more just and equitable societies. Its programs promote democratic rights and respect for workers, raise public awareness about abuses of the world’s most vulnerable workers, and, above all, help the world’s workers secure a voice in their societies and the global economy. The Center seeks a Senior Program Officer for its Law Programs department, with at least 10 years of practical experience, including at the international level, to work on supply chain issues and to execute on commitments in current grants. The senior lawyer must be capable, due to experience and stature, to interact with human rights advocates around the globe, to forge advocacy strategies, including with litigators and to advocate in national and international forums independently and persuasively. The Senior Program Officer will increase the capacity of NGOs, trade unions, worker centers and human and worker rights advocacy networks to respond to this global rights crisis in supply chains. The Senior Program Officer will also dedicate substantial time to the development and expansion of the global network.
