Job Title: TB Europe Coalition Officer
Working For: TB Europe Coalition
Despite being preventable and curable, tuberculosis (TB) is the most significant infectious disease killer in the world. Under the UN Sustainable Development Agenda, the goal is to end the epidemic by 2030. However, in 2018, 10 million people developed TB and 1.5 million died of the disease. At current rates of progress, the end of the epidemic will not be reached for another 100 years at least. The TB Europe Coalition (TBEC) is a regional advocacy network working with civil society to end TB in the WHO European region.
The TBEC Officer leads on the delivery of all activities laid out in the EU CHAFEA Specific Grant Agreement, for its final two years, which focuses on advocacy towards relevant regional bodies and capacity-building activities for civil society organisations in EU member states. The role, alongside TBEC’s other Secretariat staff, will be responsible for leading the delivery of TBEC’s advocacy and research, and EU capacity building activities, ranging from online webinars to an online mentoring programme. When the global situation is safe to do so, they will also organise country-based workshops. The role will ensure the transparent, accountable and sustainable governance of the network. The Officer will task-manage the TBEC Coordinator, who is responsible for administrative management and communications.
We are looking for a proactive and organised team player, who is able to manage a variety of different tasks and projects. They will be able to manage their budget, ensuring that all project costs remain within those anticipated in the budget. The candidate will also have experience organising trainings (general events organisation experience will also be considered). This role would suit someone with experience in an advocacy environment, who is looking for a varied role in which they are able to develop a range of projects and skills. They will need experience organising trainings or other events, and know how this can build participants’ skills. Given the small nature of the organisation’s Secretariat, it is vital that they are able to work on a variety of different projects and manage inter-cultural dynamics. A positive and enthusiastic attitude, as well as the desire to get involved, is encouraged.
