The department of International Public Health have an exciting opportunity for a Programme Assistant to join the team on fixed-term basis, to cover a period of maternity leave.
Founded in 1898 and the oldest of its kind in the world, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for teaching and research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, NGOs, private organisations and global institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, Foto-Cewek aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.
The Department of International Public Health is seeking an enthusiastic and skilled individual to help the Community Health Systems Group achieve its objectives through your contributing to and supporting administration, reporting, logistical and financial provisions.
This will entail undertaking basic financial administration tasks, allocating expenditure to project outputs, activities and budget lines and supporting project reporting, closure and evaluation activities. A key part of the role will be arranging national and international meetings and workshops, including organising travel, visas, transfers and accommodation. Therefore, previous experience of organising and planning meetings is essential.
You should have proven administration experience in project work and be a good problem solver and have a meticulous attention to detail. You should be able to work and manage your own time, whilst prioritising conflicting demands without the need for close supervision.
The successful candidate will have a minimum of three GCSE’s at Grade C or above (or equivalent) including English Language. Experience/training in account administration and/or spreadsheet management would be an advantage.
