ABOUT FREEDOM HOUSE
Established more than 80 years ago on the core conviction that freedom flourishes in democratic nations where governments are accountable to their people, Freedom House is a nonpartisan non-profit organization that works to defend and expand freedom globally to help secure a world where all are free. Around the world, repressive regimes are preventing billions of people from exercising their fundamental rights. We identify and analyze threats to freedom, mobilize decision makers to respond to those threats and seize opportunities for progress, and support activists and organizations working to defend and expand freedom. We are dedicated to ensuring that the United States serves as a positive model of democratic practice at home and a consistent champion of freedom globally. By gathering authoritative data and leveraging our global networks, Freedom House is an unwavering beacon in protecting human rights and promoting democratic governance.
The Business Manager for the Africa Regional Program team reports to the Africa Program Director and oversees all administrative and financial aspects of the regional portfolio, working closely with the Regional Program leadership and Grants Administration & Compliance.

The position has a leadership role within the regional team, supporting the Director and Deputy Director by, for example, advising on funder requirements, projected and available resources, and the overall administration of the team. The position is part of a cohort of Business Managers across the International Programs Division, all of whom work closely with Grants Administration & Compliance on overall grants management and reporting, as well as with Operations on administrative requirements.
