The Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP) seeks a bold, dynamic, creative, and thoughtful leader to guide its U.S. operations and initiatives in their next stage of growth. The U.S. Director will be ALLMEP’s senior advocate and chief operations officer in the United States, managing complex relationships with Washington policymakers, high-value donors, foreign diplomats, community organizations, and the media.
This position provides a rare opportunity to contribute to Israeli and Palestinian peace and security by building a strong network of supporters in the United States, advocating on behalf of tens of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians who are building cooperation and a foundation for lasting peace, and to build bridges between those regional peacebuilders and the many Americans of all backgrounds who care deeply about peace in the region.
As a core member of the global executive team, the U.S. Director will work closely with the Executive Director and the regional team in implementing ALLMEP’s worldwide initiatives, especially the establishment of a multi-million dollar International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace, following the successful enactment of MEPPA. The director must skillfully manage a broad coalition of allies, leverage relationships, and constantly adapt complex strategies to navigate a fast-changing policy and political environment. We are looking for a candidate who is able to think strategically and manage effectively, so that each of these priorities and stakeholders can simultaneously flourish. Additionally, the ideal candidate will have experience in planning and executing comprehensive strategies; managing and motivating team members; designing efficient systems for financial operations, internal communications and reporting; and of working in a complex international organization with varied stakeholders.
