The MCC Representative (Rep) will be based in Asia. If not located in Afghanistan, the Reps will travel frequently to Afghanistan to support partners and monitor projects supported by MCC. Currently the program works exclusively via grants to partners. MCC Reps can expect to spend a significant amount of time doing or facilitating capacity building with partners. Travel outside of Afghanistan is extremely difficult for Afghan citizens, Reps must therefore utilize their own knowledge and experience or outside resources to facilitate capacity building in country for Afghan partners.
An MCC Rep role may be filled with a married couple sharing the role, with a single person, or with a married candidate whose spouse is not interested in a Rep role, in which case MCC would discuss possible roles for the spouse. MCC will consider a variety of options to support the Rep in their roles and responsibilities, based on the qualified candidates who apply.
