The Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health (CMNH) at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine are seeking to appoint a Programme Co-ordinator to work in Lome, Togo.
The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, organisations and 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 Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health (CMNH) at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine offers unique expertise in using the rigorous discipline of research to inform teaching and technical assistance programmes to improve the health of mothers and babies globally.
The Global Fund is funding the CMNH project, “Quality improvement of integrated HIV, TB and Malaria services in Antenatal and Postnatal Care facilities in Togo”. The project aims to produce sustainable measurable improvements in the availability and quality of HIV, TB and malaria services integrated in ANC and PNC in selected health facilities.
To support this commitment, we are seeking to appoint a Programme coordinator to join the team to assist the project in attaining its objectives by providing efficient and effective support to ensure the smooth running of projects and programmes. As well as undertaking a wide range of duties, the programme coordinator will oversee the day to day management of the project office based in Lomé, Togo to support all country administration and logistic functions.
You will have day to day management of the research programmes which will include responsibility for implementing systems to monitor the progress of programme activity and ensure successful delivery. It will also be expected that the successful candidate will coordinate travel, translation, and meeting arrangements, along with the completion of reports as required by the partners and donors.
The successful candidate will be educated to University degree level in any business related subject and have a full accounting qualification, with evidence of continued professional development in a relevant subject area. Proven experience in providing programme support to complex international projects is essential, as is experience of aspects of financial management when dealing with development and/or funding agencies.
The ability to communicate and build effective working relationships with a range of people at all levels from diverse cultures is a pre-requisite of the role, as is excellent time management and organisational skills. Excellent working knowledge of MS Office applications is crucial for this role.
