 Mediator 
 by Editor  06/13/17 
Location: DC 
Expires 07/01/2017 



For its headquarters in Washington, D.C. (USA), the International Monetary Fund (the Fund), an international organization with a diverse staff from over 140 countries, is seeking a Mediator to head its Mediation Office. The Mediation Office was established in 2012 and is an integral part of the Fund’s internal Dispute Resolution System (DRS).
 
The Mediator conducts mediations of workplace disputes, under the Fund’s Mediation Rules, and administers all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the Mediation Office. This includes administering the in-take process to determine whether a matter is appropriate for mediation and, where appropriate, referring employees to other DRS services. It also includes establishing appropriate procedures and protocols for safeguarding the confidentiality of the mediation and facilitation services offered by the Mediator, and compiling statistics and other information to be presented in periodic reports.
 
The Mediator is responsible for conducting outreach to Fund employees to educate them about mediation as a dispute resolution option and about conflict prevention and management generally. This includes making available to employees in Fund offices worldwide, using various channels and media, information on what the mediation process involves, the types of disputes that may be mediated, and the procedures for initiating mediation. The Mediator’s outreach may also include conducting conflict prevention and resolution skills, communication skills, and management training sessions as requested; leadership and conflict coaching; as well as support for the Peers for a Respectful Workplace Program.
 
The Mediator serves as an independent neutral third party and is appointed by the Managing Director of the Fund.

The Mediator shall be appointed for an initial two-year term. Prior to the end of that period, the Managing Director shall decide whether to extend the incumbent’s appointment for an additional and final term of five years.

An individual who has served as the Mediator is not eligible for staff employment with the Fund.
Qualifications
 
Candidates for the Mediator position should have an advanced degree in a relevant field, and a minimum of 15 years of professional experience mediating workplace disputes, preferably at an international public- or private-sector organization. In addition to proven success in conducting mediations, experience with the design and promotion of a mediation program and heading or administering a mediation office, especially at an international organization, would be particularly valuable. A legal background would be useful, but is not required. Additional work in fields such as human resource management, conciliation, and arbitration would also be relevant, as would managerial experience. An excellent command of English, the working language of the IMF is required. Knowledge of other languages is desirable.
 
Additional Information:
 
The selected candidate will be expected to take up the position in Washington, D.C. preferably by fall 2017. The Mediator's term of service is intended to be for a non-renewable seven-year term, with an initial contract for two years. Following an individual's end of service as Mediator, that person shall not be eligible for staff employment with the Fund.
 
The Fund offers a competitive salary commensurate with the requirements of the position and the experience of the individual. An attractive benefits package will be provided.
The IMF is committed to achieving a diverse staff, including gender, nationality, culture and educational background.

Kearns & West has openings for a Project Coordinator/Associate in its San Francisco and Sacramento/Davis (located in Davis) offices. Kearns & West is a national collaborative problem solving, dispute resolution, and strategic communications firm with offices in Sacramento/Davis, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, CA, Portland, OR and Washington DC. We provide a spectrum of services to government agencies and public sector companies based on their internal and external ives, constituencies, and key drivers such as subject matter and timing. Our service spectrum includes conflict and needs assessment; outreach and engagement; process and meeting design, conflict resolution including mediation; collaborative decision making; and strategic planning. We work extensively, but not solely, in the field of public policy.
Project Coordinator/Associate Position
The Project Coordinator/Associate will support collaborative problem solving, strategic planning, dispute resolution, public outreach and engagement, and communications processes involving stakeholders from state and federal agencies, tribes, advocacy organizations, industry, and local government in California and across the United States.
This entry-level position involves multiple responsibilities and roles including: planning, scheduling, and uting stakeholder meetings or other forums (including logistics such as venue location, audio visual equipment, and invitations), project research, strategic planning, stakeholder communications and outreach support, notetaking and preparation of meeting summaries, development of project proposals including budgets, business development, contract administration, and invoice and expense report preparation.
We’re looking for someone who is:
• Highly organized and prepared to contribute to team organization
• Adaptable and flexible
• Self-motivated and comfortable working independently
• An effective and reliable communicator
• Comfortable with taking direction and able to take the initiative as needed
• Able to reliably set priorities, manage multiple tasks, and meet project deadlines
• Able to work and balance multiple projects for multiple clients
• Successful at balancing working as part of a team with working independently, and
• Comfortable working in a small [2-3 person] office environment and collaborating virtually with inter-office teams (based in San Francisco/Portland/Washington, DC).
A strong candidate will have sound professional and personal judgment. Work assignments will involve projects in the Davis or San Francisco office as well as in other K&W offices, and the ability to work with staff in other locations will be important. We are in the business of supporting effective problem solving and joint decision making, often in the public sector, so communication skills are critical. A strong candidate will write clearly and accurately under deadlines, and will have strong “people” skills.
This position:
• offers significant opportunities for professional growth and experience
• will require regular presence in our Davis or San Francisco office as well as some travel (local, regional, national)
• is a non-partisan, “neutral” position in relation to subject matter, not an advocacy position
A strong candidate will be interested in a career that incorporates strong collaborative problem solving and stakeholder outreach and engagement abilities.
SHORT-TERM CONTRACT: We plan to fill each position initially through a short-term contract; a successful candidate must be willing to work as an independent contractor during this initial period. We intend to convert this position to employee status when business conditions justify that step.
MINIMUM EDUCATION: Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree or equivalent. Advanced degree or education is valued but will not change job duties described above.
PREFERRED EXPERIENCE: Strong candidates will have one to three years of experience or a master’s degree equivalent with a focus on public policy, energy/transmission, the environment, water issues, or conflict management and resolution. Demonstrated understanding and interest in state and local government and/or agriculture policy will enhance an application. Fluency in Spanish is strongly valued but not required. Proficiency with online collaboration, database management, graphic design, and social media tools, and with GIS tools, also is preferred.
REQUIRED SKILLS: Proficiency in MS Office (Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel) is required.
PRIOR REGIONAL CONNECTION: For the Davis office position, we strongly prefer a demonstrated prior connection to the Sacramento/Central Valley region: family ties, work experience, or graduate school are examples.
TO APPLY: Please e-mail a resume and cover letter to personnel@kearnswest.com. We ask that you not call K&W staff or send telecopies. Resumes will be accepted until the position is filled.
