Job Description

The Social Responsibility (SR) program drives customer trust and business continuity by ensuring respect for the rights of workers throughout Amazon’s supply chain and operations. We uphold company standards and expectations (such as Amazon's Supply Chain Standards and Human Rights Principles), and seek to constantly improve the tools and processes that we use in doing so. The global SR program is expanding to launch a new program aimed at identifying and responding to social risks within our global operations network and supply chain.

We are looking for a self-motivated, senior manager to oversee the development of a social and human rights program to support the operations supply chain in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). This role would involve understanding the significant human rights/ social risks within the operations supply chain, designing programs to mitigate and remediate these risks, working with internal stakeholders (e.g. procurement, transportation and logistics, HR and compliance) and external stakeholders (e.g. vendors, regional NGOs, consultants, industry associations). This position requires written communication skills, attention to detail, and organizational and project management abilities. The program manager will be expected to handle day-to-day issues (constantly thinking about how to invent and simplify to improve), and will also be expected to strategize on longer-term, program-wide initiatives.

The ideal candidate is:
· Equally proficient in writing documents as in doing analysis
· Someone with experience managing high-touch, high-visibility escalations in a corporate setting, who excels in time-sensitive environments
· Someone with a keen ability to influence without authority
· A customer obsessed problem solver who can effectively prioritize work
· Passion for social responsibility and sustainability
· A self-starter who over-indexes on ownership and accountability
· Familiar with retail, private brands, or sourcing at Amazon
· Energized by the opportunity to work on a global team

Key Responsibilities:
· Develop a strategy for social responsibility in the MENA Ops supply chain
· Partner with multiple Amazon businesses and functions, as well as third-party social responsibility service providers and suppliers, to implement the strategy
· Participate in region partnerships with industry associations, identifying opportunities for leveraging the membership
· Develop communications and self-service tools that will reach a large number of supplier and business stakeholders at scale to effectively implement programs
· Develop mechanisms to uphold Amazon policies and standards, e.g. standard operating procedures
· Influence without authority

Job Specification

· 10+ years experience working on human rights, labor rights, multi-stakeholder initiatives, international development, labor rights training, or social responsibility
· 5+ years of experience working in the MENA region
· Demonstrated experience using judgment skills and abilities to make decisions quickly
