Project manager - consultancy

The Department of International Public Health is seeking a Project Manager on a consultancy basis to coordinate the Health Goals Malawi project. Deadline: 23 April 2019

Founded in 1898 and the oldest of its kind in the world, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for teaching and research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, NGOs, private organisations and global institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, LSTM aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.

As a rapidly growing department within LSTM, the Department of International Public Health is looking to appoint a Project Manager on a consultancy basis to coordinate the Health Goals Malawi project which has been born out of LSTM's partnership with the Liverpool Football Club Foundation (LFC). The Health Goals Malawi project aims to use football as a convenor of people to engage adolescent and young males aged 14-24 with health services, particularly HIV self-testing.

We are looking for an experienced Project Manager who can evidence working on similar sports-based projects and can make an immediate impact. The project is now entering its second year of delivery and the Project Manager will oversee this phase to ensure milestones and outcomes are achieved. You will act as the main point of contact and have a good grasp of how best to coordinate between sports focused organisations and health/development partners.

The Project Manager will have a "coach the coaches" component to deliver in Malawi by late June 2019 which will require experience of coordinating between national/regional sports bodies, sports based CSO's and health/development partners to develop a comprehensive training package for community coaches.

To be successful you will likely have a project management or international development related qualification, related work experience and proven success delivering externally funded sports for development or research projects. Travel to Malawi is expected for purposes of the project.

Please note that the successful candidate will be required to undergo a DBS and/or other international criminal record check prior to appointment and at regular points during employment. The outcome must be satisfactory to LSTM, as the duties of this post will involve direct and/or indirect contact with vulnerable adults and/or children.

Closing date: 23 April 2019
