Project Manager for Women’s Federation for World Peace, International
The Women’s Federation for World Peace International (WFWPI) UN Office in New York is hiring a Project Manager for the 4th Annual Horizon Summit. This intergenerational weekend program will be held in New York City on March 16 and 17, 2019. This program will follow a week-long series of events sponsored by WFWP International in conjunction with the 63rd Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW63).
WFWPI is looking for someone to work in consensus with a broader team to develop all aspects of the two-day Horizon Summit, including programming, logistics, and on-site needs. The Project Manager will report to the Director and the Administrator of the WFWPI UN Office in New York, as well as collaborate with the core staff, UN representatives, interns, and volunteers. The majority of the work can be done remotely but will require occasional in-person meetings in Bridgeport, CT and site visits in New York City.
The Project Manager will be required to maintain a record of the number of hours worked and report them to the Administrator on a bi-weekly basis. The hours are generally flexible and can be completed at any time of day. However, the Project Manager should anticipate completing most of the work during normal business hours to ensure efficient and timely communication with all involved parties (other staff, UN contacts, suppliers, and more).
