Job description


THET is an international health charity which sits at the heart of a network of UK institutions working with partners in Africa and Asia. These include hospitals, professional bodies, diaspora-led community groups and small charities. Together, we are very actively responding to the direct and indirect challenges of COVID-19.

THET is now looking to broaden and develop this network by strengthening the capacity of UK institutions to engage in global health work. We will do this by developing and delivering a comprehensive capacity development programme, using participatory workshops and online tools and resources. The programme will deliver demonstrable improvements against quality assured standards, of the capacities of participating organisations, their partners and beneficiaries.

The Training Coordinator will drive this work, drawing on their own expertise in capacity building and online training, supported by THET’s Policy and Learning, External Engagement and Grants Management Teams.

The successful candidate will be joining THET at an exciting period of growth for the charity as we seek to capitalise on renewed UK Government support for this approach.

About THET

Today, one billion people will never see a qualified health worker in their lives. 

Since 1988, THET has been working to change this. From reducing maternal deaths in Uganda to improving the quality of hospital care for injured children in Myanmar, we work to strengthen local health systems and build a healthier future for all. 

We do this by leveraging the expertise and energy of the UK health community, supporting Health Partnerships between NHS institutions, Royal Colleges and academic institutions in the UK and those overseas.

In the past ten years THET has reached over 100,000 health workers across 31 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia in partnership with over 130 UK institutions.
