Counterpart International is currently seeking a Media and Communications Specialist (referred to hereafter as the Specialist) for the Civil Society Strengthening Program (CSSP), a five-year initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Haiti. As a sub-partner, Counterpart is supporting Papyrus, a local Haitian non-governmental organization, to implement CSSP. The project goal is to strengthen the capacity of Haitian civil society organizations (CSOs), including faith-based organizations, local groups, and those working with the diaspora that are registered and operating in Haiti. Through this initiative, participating CSOs will be better equipped to develop, implement, and monitor their advocacy and service-delivery activities to the highest quality standards. Counterpart is working across the project objectives to provide technical support to the CSSP program and consortium partners as needed in the areas of thinking and working politically, advocacy, and media. Prioritizing localization, Counterpart is conducting all activities with an eye to transfer skills and mentor our Haitian-based partners to support local ownership and sustainability.
The Specialist will provide thought leadership and guide the application of learning, innovation and best practices in independent media capacity building for the participating Haitian CSOs. The individual will provide media and communications-related technical support across CSSP. The candidate should have proven experience in independent media strengthening as well as a deep knowledge of organizational development methodologies. The Specialist will provide technical guidance and support to the CSSP team and CSO partners. The Specialist will also provide grant-making guidance and support to participating Haitian CSOs, as the project aims to build their capacity to make grants supporting advocacy, journalism, and media activities.
