The Operations Manager position will include coordinating with the FdS Haiti local Haitian staff, managerial responsibilities, working with international agencies and other NGOs, medical tourism / eco-tourism outreach, website / internet / social network development and transportation. All FdS positions are dedicated to improving the ecological and social environment of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The position itself is flexible based on your abilities, interests and strengths. The FdS Haiti team is in need of help at our facility in Haiti to coordinate operations there and coordinate operations internationally.

There are always activities in scheduling and outreach, project expansion, logistics, project prioritization, staff / volunteer coordination, educational materials production, office participation, management discussions, training coordination, driving for the various integrated programs, grant and donation solicitation, facility design, and lots of ecological cooking and development. This is the world of a Social Eco Enterprise.

The current staff always seems to need to be in at least two places at once. So the Operations Manager will help to keep track of all of these aspects, plus FdS often has offsite volunteers, who have time available, and are need of project oversight to use their time the most efficiently. The world still wants to help Haiti, or at least have a Haitian project or two included in their outreach. FdS is ready to expand as other developmental organizations are downsizing. Expanding operations in the Dom. Rep. is also anticipated.

All FdS projects are designed to be financially sustainable.  If the Operations Manager can help FdS grow and be more effective, the position can grow and employee ownership options are available for long-term FdS workers. There is lots of the vision / project creation process still to come. Now is a great time to join the FdS team.

Languages are a plus: Haitian Creole would be great. French or Spanish would be helpful. Applicants will be asked to actively learn Creole as part of the position.

The current Operations Manager position will include room and food, and will have the basic financial compensation and travel benefits that the other small developing organizations here in Haiti offer. Additional positions are also available for volunteers and interns.
