Jobs: Program Manager-Merida, Mexico

I apologize if this is not an armed security type job like I normally post, but because this is for Mexico, I figured I would promote it here on the blog. The Merida Initiative is one of those deals where contractors can totally get in there and make a difference if given the task. There is a war in Mexico against these cartels, and they need all the help we can give them.

This is also a great job to post to coincide with this recent article about the ramped up efforts in Mexico. In the article they discuss how contractors are a way to get US resources into Mexico, and bypass Mexican law that prohibits US military help. This actually reminds me of something that MPRI would be doing. Here is the quote:

Officials are also looking into embedding a team of US contractors inside a specially vetted Mexican counternarcotics police unit. Officials on both sides of the border said the new efforts have been designed to get around Mexican laws that prohibit foreign military and police from operating on its soil, and to prevent advanced US surveillance technology from falling under the control of Mexican security agencies with long histories of corruption.

Now of course this gig does not at all sound like they will be ’embedded’ with counternarcotics officers. But if I find more jobs related to Merida, I will post them as I find them. I am not the POC or recruiter for this particular job, and please follow the link below if you would like to apply. Good luck. –Matt

Either way, this would be a good gig for anyone on the East coast. You would probably get a lot of travel in as well. I am not the POC or recruiter for this, and please follow the highlighted links below in order to apply. Good luck and let me know how it goes? –Matt
