Community Delegation Advocacy Officer

The Stop TB Partnership’s Delegation of Communities Affected by TB (“Delegation”) was established in accordance with the Board Decision Point 31-8 (31st Board meeting, January 2019):

 

“The Board endorses the initiative of the TB-affected Communities and Developing Country NGO constituencies to establish delegations with the aim to improve communication and engagement, strengthen accountability and enhance institutional memory of the constituencies. The Board requests the Secretariat and calls for the partners to explore ways to provide support to the delegation building process.”

 

Since its creation, the Delegation has supported and contributed to a number of projects, including such flagship initiatives as TB33% Campaign and the Deadly Divide, also jointly with the Developing Country NGO Delegation. In order to sustain the momentum and ensure achievement of anticipated results, the Delegation will hire a part-time Consultant (Advocacy Officer) to support programmatic and advocacy-related work around these initiatives. The present Terms of Reference (ToR) describe the tasks, qualifications, level of effort and timeline, as well as the budget, for the Consultant.

 

Interested candidates are requested to submit the following documents to eyramab101@yahoo.com before 6 pm CET on 7 June 2021:

  • Current resume/CV outlining relevant qualifications and experience, as well as names and contact details of at least two professional references

  • Motivation letter, highlighting how the candidate’s background meets qualification requirements for the position, and providing examples of successful advocacy projects

Incomplete applications, as well as applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

Applications will be reviewed by a selection panel consisting of members of the Community Delegation; shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview (to take place via Zoom).
