Job description

Join our small but busy team and help us to achieve our vision of universal access to safe anaesthesia. The Administrative Officer ensures the efficient and effective function of the WFSA office, including support to the finance manager and to external communications. 

5 billion of the world's 7 billion people do not have access to safe, affordable, timely surgery and anaesthesia. 17 million people die each year from surgically treatable conditions (that's more than 4 times the number who die from HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria combined).

If that sounds wrong to you and you are an experienced office administrator with a desire to make a difference then this could be your perfect job.

Candidate Application Information 

This is a three or four day role (let us know your preference). You will need to be able to work from home initially although we hope for a staggered return to the office over the coming months.
