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.

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.

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.

Founded in 1896, the Gould School of Law has a distinguished past built on the principles of equity and excellence, and the courage to break new ground. USC first introduced legal education in Southern California. Today, the law school continues to make history through its philosophy of innovation and through its people. USC Gould cultivates analytical ability, ethical values, and a spirit of collegiality that prepare students for meaningful careers benefiting society.

Through the program, students gain an in-depth knowledge of the complexities of ADR. The ADR program offers a wide range of arbitration and mediation courses, as well as hands-on practical experience through mediation clinics, practicums/externships, workshops and mock mediation/arbitration competitions. Through such courses, students become skilled in active listening, negotiation and creative problem-solving, all of which are highly relevant skills for any practicing attorney.

The Center’s programs include conferences and symposia. Reasonable travel associated with Center programs can be expected. The Center hosts or sponsors annual events with the goal of bringing together leading academics, practitioners, and policymakers from across the country and around the world to discuss critical problems and challenges that exist within the realm of alternative dispute resolution.

We are seeking a visionary leader with the desire to have a national impact on the critical and urgent conversations surrounding alternative dispute resolution. The ideal candidate must possess strong entrepreneurial skills and must be a self-motivated and well-organized, collaborative leader.

Candidates must possess excellent oral and written communication skills and must be willing to engage in external outreach and fundraising. Among other things, the Center Director will be responsible for the following duties:

1) engage in strategic planning and establish policies, protocols, and procedures to govern the operation of the Center, including the management of an Advisory Board

2) direct day to day operations of the Center, including all its programming

3) administer the Center’s budget

5) create opportunities for students to benefit from the work of the Center, including developing new courses and research opportunities, as appropriate

6) work closely with faculty, both at the USC Gould School of Law and other law schools

7) ensure compliance with the requirements of any applicable endowment or grant
