The Fred Hollows Foundation is a development organisation working in more than 25 countries. We help train and empower local eye doctors, nurses and health workers to create a sustainable system of care in the communities that need it most. The work we do has a very clear purpose: to make sure everyone, whether they’re rich or poor, has access to high quality, affordable eye health.

We focus on preventable and treatable diseases such as cataract, trachoma and diabetic retinopathy. Our in-country work involves strengthening the eye health systems, local training and providing affordable technology, so that doctors, nurses and health care workers can provide promotion, prevention, treatment, rehabilitation or referral services to communities in need of eye health services. We use research to improve our understanding of avoidable blindness, then use our findings to implement strategies and advocate for change. As part of our global efforts to eliminate blindness, The Fred Hollows Foundation has been working in Ethiopia in its effort to eliminate trachoma by 2020 in the Oromia Region, a region with one of the highest burdens of trachoma in the world. We established the Ethiopia program in 2013 and are now the largest implementing partner for USAID NTD funding. Our program head office is in Addis Ababa, with four operational hubs, across 16 zones in the Oromia region with a target population of over 26 million people. 

Reporting to the Country Director you will be a key contributor to organizational strategic thinking and planning and will have direct responsibility for programming.  You will have the assistance of senior program leaders and a sizeable programme team. You will be responsible for safeguarding and sustaining our impeccable programme outputs and will contribute to efforts to scale up FHFE’s work towards comprehensive eye health. You will also be expected to help FHFE establish and maintain quality best practice standards, determine system improvements and implementing changes.

You will need to have a significant amount of complex program management experience in international development, preferably from the health sector.  Your communication skills need to be first class, to establish strong external relationships, to get things done, as well as have had experience navigating a centralised western office and engaging with diverse teams.  You will also need to have had significant change management experience, be an adaptive leader and have proven ability learn on the fly.

While this role’s main base is Addis Ababa, frequent travel to our program areas will be necessary as well as some limited international travel.
