Job Description:

Inspired by the leadership of Senator John McCain and his family's legacy of public service, the McCain Institute advances character-driven leadership at home and around the world, based on the pillars of security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity. The Institute's programmatic work centers around the key issues of: developing character-driven leaders; human rights and democracy; combatting human trafficking; national security and counterterrorism; reaffirming America's alliances; and freedom of the press. The Institute, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization and part of Arizona State University.

At a time when character-driven leadership is more important than ever, the Institute is making a major investment in creating a dynamic new fellowship program to engage, support, and advance courageous and principled young leaders from the United States and around the world.

The overarching objectives of this new program will be to:

  • Support emerging leaders who have, in the style of Senator McCain, demonstrated the courage to act in service of a cause or causes greater than themselves.

  • Build a uniquely powerful professional network that will support these individuals throughout the course of their careers.

  • Develop substantive avenues of engagement between these leaders and the Institute's other programs.

  • Create a diverse, nonpartisan community of character-driven leaders who have stepped 'into the arena' to advocate for positive change in their communities and beyond.

  • Make a long-term investment in the next generation of leadership in the United States and abroad by designing and executing a sustainable program model.

The Institute seeks a passionate, creative, and entrepreneurial young professional to play the leading role in conceptualizing, building, and managing this program.

The person in this role will have a unique opportunity to build an exciting new program from the ground up, with seed funding support.

Minimum Qualifications

Bachelor's degree in business or related field AND five (5) years' experience managing projects/client relationships; OR, Any equivalent combination of experience and/or education from which comparable knowledge, skills and abilities have been achieved.
