Programme Manager (Pharmaceutical Supply Management)

The Centre for Neglected and Tropical Diseases (CNTD) is looking to appoint a Programme Manager to work across project countries as part of DFID funded Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) Elimination Programme

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.

This newly created post for a Programme Manager (Pharmaceutical Supply Management) is an exciting and unique opportunity for a highly skilled manager with expertise in managing multi country programmes to join the team in CNTD and play a key role by providing the technical expert advice and support to drive forward the National NTD programmes around drug donations from multiple pharmaceutical companies.

The successful candidate will provide technical pharmaceutical expertise to national ministries of health and counterparts for the improved management of complex supply chain systems.  In addition, they will manage operational research development and implementation, developing models for the integration of international practices and procedures for the programmed activities.  Leading and mentoring national staff across countries while developing training materials based on the findings in the field will be required and providing oversight of national financial programme activity will be a key activity.

Applicants should be educated to degree level with a MSc in International Public Health or an Epidemiology related subject area and a BSc in a relevant field. Proven experience of programme management and leadership with the ability to develop strategies and capabilities of integrating pharmaceutical data into treatment campaigns will be essential.
