Trachoma is a neglected tropical disease, and the leading cause of infectious blindness in the world. Across the globe, almost 160 million people live in areas where trachoma is endemic, with the African continent carrying the highest burden of the disease.
Sightsavers has vacancies for two enthusiastic self-motivated Deputy Project Directors to closely support the project management and delivery of a high profile, multi-country, multi-partner programme which will significantly contribute to the elimination of blinding trachoma by 2020.
Building on the accomplishments of the project to date, the successful candidates will have extensive programme/project management experience in a relevant sector and a strong understanding of how to establish stakeholder consensus. The right candidates will also possess excellent communication skills and the ability to proactively problem solve using their own initiative.
