The Exodus Road
The Exodus Road (TER) envisions a world where victims of human trafficking are freed and those who enslave them are brought to justice. The Exodus Road will accomplish this vision by utilizing covert investigations teams comprised of nationals and expatriates to assist law enforcement in identifying victims, collecting evidence against traffickers, and advocating for police action.
SE Asia Aftercare Coordinator
The SE Asia Aftercare Coordinator (SEAAC) is a critical role supporting all of TER’s aftercare activities in SE Asia. Although TER has traditionally focused on intervention, the SEAAC will manage all of TER’s efforts both to follow up rescued victims to make sure that they’re receiving appropriate immediate post-rescue care and longer-term rehabilitation services, and to lead TER’s expansion into direct aftercare work, with a specific focus on TER’s After Rescue Support Services pilot program for adult human trafficking victims. The SEAAC will also be responsible for developing and maintaining strong working relationships with social-welfare government agencies and NGOs, analyzing the strengths and weakness of aftercare services in each region of operation, and proposing solutions for identified weaknesses, which may include an expansion of TER’s services and/or capacity building for government agencies and partner NGOs.
The SEAAC will work with both internal (hire, train, and manage social workers; work closely with country directors; provide diligent reporting to the Office of Global Operations in the United States) and external (develop and manage relationships with social-welfare government agencies and NGOs) stakeholders and will work diligently to fulfill TER’s commitments to partners, funders, the Board of Directors, and, most importantly, the victims of human trafficking.
This role is highly administrative and managerial in nature, but it will also require an extensive amount of regional travel and work on the ground, particularly in regards to training and managing aftercare staff. The role is highly strategic and facilitative, requiring a combination of focus and flexibility, as well as a willingness to play an active, behind-the-scenes role. As a regional-based leader, the role requires a highly-resourceful individual with strong emotional intelligence, self-motivation, and strong analytical skills. Reporting to the SE Asian Regional Manager (SEARM), and serving as a member of TER’s Global Operations management team, the SEAAC provides leadership, direction, and coordination for a variety of initiatives across SE Asia.
This management-level, full-time position will report directly to the SEARM and encompasses seven primary accountabilities:

- Victim monitoring: the SEAAC will manage all social workers and related staff to ensure comprehensive long-term monitoring/case management of all rescued victims and effective reporting on victim rehabilitation to TER’s Global Command team. Long-term case management will include attending all victims’ court hearings and providing feedback and recommendations to the investigations teams and leadership regarding gaps in intelligence or identified corruption that led to a failure to prosecute or other negative outcomes;monitoring victims’ progress in their rehabilitation programs and ensuring that those programs are providing sufficiently high-quality care; understanding and tracking the reintegration and repatriation processes for all victims; and fully documenting and reporting on these activities – organize and document case progress in required case-management programs and compile country-office and aftercare-team reports, statistics, and other relevant information to guarantee accountability and allow for proper monitoring and evaluation.
- Program design and management: the SEAAC will help design, develop, implement, and manage the After Rescue Support Services pilot program (including building community connections and identifying internship opportunities for clients) as well as any other aftercare programs deemed appropriate and worthwhile in the future.
- Training and capacity building: the SEAAC will be responsible for hiring, training, and developing all social workers and related staff (including training staff in the use of Monday.com and other key programs and conducting feedback sessions with aftercare and broader country-office teams to disseminate best practices and lessons learned); providing regular input and critical analysis to the Global Command Team on strategic considerations covering all aspects of program implementation and otherwise serving as a liaison between the regional aftercare teams and the Global Command Team and other global departments; and organizing training and capacity-building activities for external partners, as necessary.
- Management of relationships with external stakeholders: the SEAAC will lead all efforts to identify, grow, and maintain relationships with social-welfare government agencies, aftercare and other relevant NGOs, donors, and other regional stakeholders to advance program goals.
- Expanding TER’s aftercare footprint in SE Asia: the SEAAC will be responsible for analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of government and NGO aftercare in TER’s areas of operation and otherwise conducting needs assessments for the purpose of designing solutions and proposing strategies for TER to meet those needs and expand its involvement in SE Asia.
- Timely reporting: the SEAAC will maintain fluency in Monday.com and all other critical programs and will provide the Global Command team with timely reports on all aftercare-related activities in SE Asia.
