Who We Are

IREX is a global development and education organization. We strive for a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world—where individuals reach their full potential, governments serve their people, and communities thrive. With a projected annual portfolio of more than $100 million and more than 600 staff worldwide, we work with partners in more than 100 countries in four areas essential to progress: cultivating leaders, empowering youth, strengthening institutions, and increasing access to quality education and information.

The Program Coordinator will support the Leadership Practice, which consists of more than 10 exchange and fellowship programs that develop global leaders through study, professional placements, and programming, in areas such as administration, compliance, participant and non-profit partner communication, data coordination and management, strategic communications, technology and virtual platform support, recruiting and selection, fellow support, events, and logistics management.

This role will focus on supporting the Climate Talent Initiative (CTI), a portfolio of IREX programs designed to meet urgent talent needs within the climate change sector.

We are doers. Our decades of on-the-ground experience help us create greater impact, practical recommendations, and lasting partnerships.
