ICTC Job Opportunity: Communications Specialist


The International Coalition for Trachoma Control (ICTC) is seeking a resourceful and committed Communications Specialist to amplify advocacy and resource mobilization activities and help us see the back of trachoma for good.

There’s never been a better time to join the global movement to end trachoma. Recent years have seen exceptional collaboration and momentous scale up in the global program to tackle the disease. Current progress indicates that the elimination of a major public health problem – within our lifetime – is well within reach. 
ICTC is a coalition of non‐governmental, donor, private sector and academic organizations that work together to support the WHO Alliance for the Global Elimination of Trachoma by 2020 (GET2020 Alliance). A diverse and ambitious coalition, the role would suit a proactive and creative communications professional with proven experience of working with others to deliver successful communications.
The ideal candidate would have a passion for fostering collaborative partnerships to support the delivery of our strategic objectives and would benefit from having established media contacts. The candidate must be flexible and have demonstrable experience of producing engaging copy and visual communication materials, managing online/digital communications channels and supporting campaigns.
