Job Title: Senior Parliamentary Advocacy Officer (Tuberculosis)

Working For: RESULTS UK

Location: London

Salary: £33,047 per annum

Length of Contract: This is a full-time permanent position

Job Details

There are many organisations working to fight hunger and poverty around the world. RESULTS UK’s focus is unique: we seek to make change in the world through utilising a combination of grassroots advocacy, parliamentary advocacy, and policy advocacy to create the public and political will to end poverty.

About the Role
The Senior Parliamentary Advocacy Officer will be a key part of our Parliamentary Advocacy Team. Reporting to the Head of Parliamentary Advocacy, this post-holder will take lead responsibility for delivering parliamentary advocacy on Tuberculosis (TB) and providing leadership on a sub-set of RESULTS UK’s TB workstreams / policy priorities. Someone dies of TB every 20 seconds. The world’s failure to adequately address TB and other diseases of poverty is due in large part to a lack of political will. There is therefore an urgent need to scale up advocacy capacities in both donor and low-income countries to demand greater leadership and accountability on TB.

In leading parliamentary advocacy on this issue, the post-holder will lead relationships with UK Parliamentarians on TB. They will coordinate very closely with the TB lead within the Policy Advocacy Team and with the Grassroots Advocacy Team, as well as with the Global TB Caucus – a network of over 2000 parliamentarians around the world committed to ending the TB epidemic, whose secretariat is hosted by RESULTS UK. In the UK, they will work closely with civil society organisations and other stakeholders to deliver impactful advocacy on TB and global health more broadly. Globally, they will work strategically as part of the ACTION Global Health Advocacy Partnership to mobilise greater resources and political commitment for the control of TB. The ACTION network seeks to address and reverse the global TB problem through implementing cutting-edge, results-based advocacy and communication strategies. This post-holder will also provide the secretariat function to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Global Tuberculosis (http://www.appg-tb.org.uk/).
