Are you passionate about global health and looking to make a positive difference in the world? Are you highly organised, with excellent communication and administration skills that will help us manage relationships with external programme partners to ensure medical aid reaches those who need it?
International Health Partners (IHP) is a global health charity coordinating the safe and responsible donation of medicines and health supplies to people around the world who lack access. We work with a range of global partners to respond rapidly to humanitarian disasters, support long-term healthcare programmes, and equip doctors and other healthcare professionals with supplies for short-term medical trips. We specifically focus on helping those in hard-to-reach, vulnerable and disaster-hit communities. We coordinate the safe and responsible donation of medical products to where the needs are greatest, so that people don’t suffer needlessly from treatable illnesses
We are seeking a Programmes Officer to provide effective support to our work in health programmes and humanitarian response. The Programmes Officer will help us identify the needs of our partners overseas – aid agencies and medical organisations – and support the preparation of appropriate shipments containing donations of medicines and medical supplies from European pharmaceutical companies. There will be plenty of administration – everything from due diligence checks on potential and existing partners to looking at the product needs of our Essential Health Packs and processing applications for these valuable kits from medics.
We are looking for someone who is self-motivated, has an excellent eye for detail, and wants to learn and contribute to a great team. We can offer you a rewarding and varied role, with lots of training and support, in our small but busy team in London.Last year we were able to send over 4 million treatments to places like Yemen, South Sudan, Palestine and Guatemala, where easily treatable diseases can mean chronic pain, poor quality of life or even a death sentence.
