NTD Contract Manager (2-year fixed term contract)
Sightsavers offices overseas or UK (dependent on the country location of the successful candidate)
Salary dependent on location, local terms and conditions will apply
Sightsavers has set two ambitious, but achievable, goals to fast track the elimination of two neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) that are two of the leading causes of preventable blindness amongst the communities we work with in Africa and Asia - onchocerciasis and trachoma. In recognition of the growth and importance of this work, we have set up a new NTD department and are now looking for exceptional candidates to help us achieve our goals.
Reporting to the Director of NTDs, the NTD Contract Manager will be responsible for the relationship and contracts between Sightsavers and the implementing agencies who have been identified to deliver our fast track initiatives. This will mean establishing, developing and maintaining long-term working relationships or partnerships to ensure that the MoUs are implemented and projects delivered.
