RESULTS UK is recruiting for a Campaigns Manager to deliver a new ‘Fighting Malaria, Improving Health’ programme in three countries, Tanzania, Ghana and Sierra Leone. Based in London but working alongside African partner organisations, the programme will build the capacity of young people affected by poor health infrastructure – in particular, those from communities affected by malaria – to become powerful advocates for policy changes to combat malaria, to strengthen health systems, and to help those countries achieve Universal Health Coverage.
The role is a fixed-term contract to the end of 2020, to work in close partnership with African partners to empower youth advocates to increasingly take ownership and delivery of powerful advocacy interventions at the country, regional and global level; and to build capacity of civil society to engage in advocacy for the strengthening of their countries’ health systems, leaving a lasting legacy.
This role will be line-managed by our Head of Campaigns, and the project will be overseen by a Steering Group made up of representatives of partner organisations. The Campaign Manager will line-manage a Campaign Officer to deliver key activities including: a residential training event in an African country TBC, a mentoring programme, a small grants programme, a ‘train the trainer’ programme, and a programme of regional and global events for youth advocates to attend.
This role will suit an advocacy professional with experience of working in partnerships, especially with Southern partners, to achieve powerful and strategic advocacy outcomes. A mature and respectful approach to working with partners operating in different advocacy contexts will be essential, as is a humility to recognise the specificity of those local contexts and partners’ existing expertise. This post will provide excellent opportunities for leading on a globally dispersed project that contributes significant advocacy outcomes, including influencing key moments such as international conferences and negotiations.
Please apply by sending a CV (maximum 3 pages) and cover letter (maximum 2 pages) to email@example.com. In your cover letter, please state where you saw the job advertised and and give examples of how you meet the requirements in the Person Specification.
The subject of your email should be “Campaign Manager”, followed by your surname. The application deadline is 9 am on 22 July and we hope to hold interviews during the week of 29 July.
