Full job description

Overview:Team Credence is a multi-company partnership proudly led by Credence Management Solutions, an industry leading government contractor with a longstanding commitment to USAID and its global health and humanitarian missions. In concert with our small business partners—ZemiTek (8(a), EDWOSB), Claro KC (MOSB), EnCompass (WO), and Global Emergency Group (SB)—Team Credence operates as one team, bringing together exceptional USAID institutional support experience, technical leadership, and an unmatched commitment to BHA and its mission.

USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID/BHA) is the lead federal coordinator for international disaster assistance. USAID/BHA provides and coordinates U.S. Government (USG) international humanitarian assistance to save lives, alleviate human suffering, and reduce the physical, social, and economic impact of rapid and slow-onset disasters by supporting at-risk populations to build stable foundations to withstand humanitarian shocks and stresses. Team Credence, through the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance Support Contract (BHASC), provides operational and administrative support to provide and coordinate humanitarian assistance and maintain 24/7 response capability.

As a key member of USAID/BHA’s Strategic Communications and Humanitarian Information Division, the Graphic Designer works very closely with USAID/BHA’s Content and Digital Communications Team under the direction of the Lead Graphic Designer to produce infographics and print and digital media products that visually represent USAID’s role in international humanitarian assistance and in specific disaster responses for both internal U.S. government and external public audiences.

Sample outputs include:
  • the USAID/BHA Annual Report; USAID’S Strategic Framework for Early Recovery, Risk Reduction, and Resilience
  • Social media assets such as USAID/BHA World Humanitarian Day video, What Does it Take to be a USAID Urban Search and Rescue Dog?, and How USAID Responds to Gender-Based Violence in Humanitarian Emergencies
  • U.S. Humanitarian Response to Russia’s War on Ukraine and the USAID Humanitarian Assistance Infographics
  • Templates for USAID/BHA’s assistance overviews, USG fact sheets, and other products.

Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.
