We’re looking for a dynamic and proactive Technical Advisor for our programming department. You will provide technical support to the team for programmes in low and middle income countries, currently in Kenya and Sierra Leone.
The Technical Advisor will help us to manage and grow our programming output. We have a range of small and medium scale projects that require expertise in public health; specifically in maternal and newborn and school health programming. You will be responsible for the development and technical oversight of our programming activity.
Knowledge & Skills:
You’ll be really good at
Providing technical expertise
You will be providing support to a wide range of project activities and helping the team to identify and develop new programmatic opportunities. You will have substantial experience of providing remote and in-person technical assistance across a range of overseas programmes in the African context.
Institutional grant applications
We’re on the cusp of extensive growth within our programming team and we have recently submitted multiple institutional funding applications with the UK government. Whether we are successful or not, we want to keep up momentum of growing our portfolio of programmes in Kenya and Sierra Leone so we need your help with ensuring our applications stand out. You will have demonstrable experience of developing and designing scalable development programmes and succinctly communicating those programmes in institutional grant applications.
In order to grow and develop, we need to be sure of our impact. You will have experience of demonstrating the impact of your work through structured and responsive monitoring, evaluation and learning processes. You will use your experience to help us adapt and strengthen our MEL processes and to communicate our impact both internally and externally.
Learning for growth and development
We do what works. We are the team that ascertains whether what we’re doing is working or not. We constantly seek out new ways to have a positive impact upon the communities we work with and continually assess the efficacy of our projects. We have an agile approach and if something is struggling to achieve the impact we’re aiming for, we’ll change it. We need an individual who is adaptive and proactive in their approach, who’s always looking to learn and who will help us to be the best we can be.
Applying for the role
You need to be an experienced Technical Advisor with clear and communicable successes on development programmes in public health. We would ideally prefer someone based in Nairobi so you can help develop our programming team but we will consider you if you’re based elsewhere if your experience is applicable.
For applicants based in Kenya, you will need to have citizenship or residency already in place as in the short term we cannot provide this.
We do want to see your CV (maximum of 3 pages please), but we also want a cover letter that explains why you will be a good fit for our programming team.
We want to hear what will make you an asset to our team and how you’ll help us to grow. We want you to tell us what you like about our approach and why you’re the person to help us to more forward.
