Hungary: Office Manager

Internews Network


Internews seeks an Office Manager for a US Government-funded project focused on championing a strong independent media sector in Armenia, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Ukraine that is resistant to powerful interests seeking to manipulate, isolate, or control the press. The Office Manager will manage the daily operations of the Internews’ Hungary office, maintain office equipment, and handle logistics for meetings in coordination with Headquarters and project staff, and third-party vendors. The Office Manager will report to the Project Director.


Internews plans to open a field office in Hungary. Ultimately, this role will be based in Budapest, Hungary. However, you must have work authorization in this location that does not require sponsorship from Internews.

Wherever possible, we work to try to find solutions for international hiring that work for both the company and the candidate. This means that some of the particulars around the offer for a role will be dependent on several factors, and that the benefits and salary structure that apply to a position will ultimately be based upon the candidate’s location and where the role is hired.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so candidates are encouraged to apply soon.

This is a limited-duration position, with an expected end date of 2024.
