Location: London, Full time position
Closing date for applications: 14 February 2019
DFID is contracting a Third Party Monitor (TPM) for a new neglected tropical disease control and elimination programme, Accelerating the Sustainable Control and Elimination of Neglected Tropical Diseases (ASCEND). The overall ASCEND programme, UK’s largest for control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), will be delivered by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Technical Supplier(s) and a TPM supplier.
The Team Lead will be responsible for the delivery of the TPM contract and management of the Integrity-led project management unit (based in London) and partner organisations which will likely involve remote management. They will be the primary point of contact for the DFID Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) and any other key interlocutors on the programme. They will report to the Integrity programme director.
The Team Lead role is a position of senior management and leadership as well as oversight of technical delivery. The Team Lead will therefore require strong leadership and communication skills as well as technical expertise in the monitoring & evaluation of health programmes. The Team Lead should be able to demonstrate vast academic and/or professional experience in the health sector; experience in neglected tropical diseases is highly desirable.
