Part-time Programme Manager - Women's Health UK

<div> <p></p><p>The George Institute for Global Health (UK), part of the Nuffield Department of Women&#146;s &amp; Reproductive Health, is looking for a Programme Manager who is passionately committed to improving the world for women, to coordinate our Women&#146;s Health Programme (WHP) in the UK.</p><br> <p>In 2016, in association with the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford, The George Institute launched a policy paper in which we called for a new global agenda on women&#146;s health. This paper extends the current focus on sexual and reproductive health to include the leading causes of death and disability for women and girls, namely non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and injuries. We also called for a greater focus on sex-disaggregated analyses of large health databases, informed by a gender lens. In support of the recommendations in that paper, our aim is to establish a cross-regional, cross-divisional women&#146;s health programme (WHP) that will, in the longer term, be respected for its contributions to improving women&#146;s health worldwide. The focus areas of the George Institute WHP global programme are: (i) conditions specific for women; and (ii) NCDs and injury in women. Currently, we have major programmes in gender- and sex-disaggregated research, and the link between pregnancy conditions and NCDs, with emerging programmes in several other areas related to the programme focus. It is hoped the WHP will incorporate discovery research, translational research, advocacy and thought leadership, and capacity building across the focus areas.</p><br> <p>Your responsibilities will include: identifying and creating a formal structure for students and academics interested in and/or currently working on projects that support the WHP at TGI (UK) and NDWRH to come together; developing, implementing and promoting regular meetings and communications within this group, aiming to raise the profile of the WHP in the University of Oxford and across the UK; identifying strategic partners working in global women&#146;s health in the UK who could further the strategic objectives of the WHP.</p><br> <p>You will have a master&#146;s degree in public health, epidemiology, international women&#146;s health, gender studies, development or in a relevant health or social science discipline and experience working in multidisciplinary teams, managing relationships with external partners and engaging senior stakeholders. You will be available and willing to undertake national and international travel and will have strong written and verbal communications skills. You will have cultural competence and an ability to work in multicultural teams, passion in the field of women&#146;s health and a commitment to gender equity and appreciation of diversity. IT skills, the ability to see the big picture, being flexible and adaptable in the face of changing organisational priorities and ambiguous environments and managing work independently without close supervision are also essential in this role.</p><br> <p>This position is part-time (18.75 hours/0.5 FTE) and fixed-term for 12 months in the first instance. This post is available as soon as possible. Applications for flexible working arrangements are welcomed and will be considered in line with business needs.</p><br> <p>You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement.</p><br> <p>The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 22 August 2018.</p> </div>
