Speeches Shim

The USAID/Honduras Mission's Democracy and Governance (DG) Office has an annual budget of more than $60 million for FY 21. The DG Office is responsible for programs in citizen security, local governance, anti-corruption, rule of law, human rights, transparency, and sustainable infrastructure in support of violence reduction activities. USAID works together with the Government of Honduras (GOH) and local and international NGOs to ensure that investments in these areas align with national priorities and build local capacity to overcome major governance and security challenges. In addition, the Mission in general, and the DG Office in particular, receive numerous requests for information, taskers, and other routine inquiries from the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, the USAID/Honduras Front Office, the U.S. Congress, and other stakeholders.
Therefore, the DG Office requires the support of a Knowledge Management (KM) Assistant to help with written internal communications products, including but not limited to: Briefing Check Lists (BCLs), fact sheets, memos, and other information products. The DG Office also requires support to
synthesize technical information from a variety of sources into easily understandable English language written products. The incumbent will be required to develop complex materials and documents in English on political or DG-related areas, and experience producing international communications materials.

The KM Assistant is an integral part of the DG Office and will coordinate the assigned work closely with the USAID/Honduras Development Outreach and Communications (DOCs) team, located in the Front Office. The KM Assistant will primarily be responsible for producing communication materials for use within the USG; any external communications or public events must be coordinated via the DOCs team. The position requires an independent, self-motivated individual who can synthesize technical information from a variety of sources into easily understandable English language written and visual products (charts, graphs, and other visual aids to be produced in Google slides, Microsoft Powerpoint, and other platforms), as well as coordinate a variety of written materials.

S/he develops both internal communications materials and may be required to assist in reviewing, writing, and editing the DG’s submissions for various reporting requirements, such as the Operational Plan (OP). These documents originate from a wide variety of sources, requiring the individual to assemble a vast amount of material and data into "single voice" documents. In addition, the incumbent will assist DG Office team members by editing and preparing letters, talking points, speeches, memoranda, taskers and other required communication and KM documents as necessary. The incumbent of this position must be able to produce superior work under short timelines as rapid turnaround of significant amounts of writing will be required.

Finally, the incumbent will be asked to assist the DG team in keeping up to date the above referenced documents as well as assisting in the logistics of high-level visits. The incumbent may suggest improvements in DG’s KM practices and systems that may ease the flow of information and make office operations more efficient and effective.
