Contract type:
Date closing:

The Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) is an independent philanthropic organisation, headquartered in London with offices in Nairobi and New Delhi. We work with a wide range of partners seeking to transform the lives of poor and vulnerable children in developing countries.

Our key focus is to deliver transformational and sustainable change, underpinned by data and evidence. For most of our grants, we work with partners to measure and evaluate progress to achieve large scale and sustainable impact. We are committed to sharing as much information as possible about what we and our partners are learning.

Position: Manager (HIV) Saving Lives

Location: London, with travel

Salary: Competitive

The Saving Lives cluster sits within CIFF's Survive and Thrive team. We focus on preventing child mortality in three areas: severe acute malnutrition, HIV and perinatal health. In the area of HIV our focus is now primarily on preventing sexual transmission of HIV, in particular amongst adolescents.

The Saving Lives team works closely with the Adolescent Sexual Health team to prevent unwanted adolescent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections - including HIV - and cross-cutting advocacy.

The Manager (HIV) Saving Lives is responsible for developing CIFF's HIV strategy, manage our funded programmes, scope new investments and build a pipeline, and represent CIFF's goals for its investments in HIV both internally and externally. Ultimately this role is responsible for the delivery of CIFF's priorities and to meet the corporate objectives of the CIFF Board. The role will also manage other programmes within CIFF's Survive and Thrive portfolio.

We aim to make improvements that are urgent, achievable and affordable. A particular emphasis of the role is to ensure the integration of HIV prevention and treatment with broader sexual and reproductive health. Reporting to the Director, Saving Lives, you will focus on identifying innovative, commercial and sustainable solutions to highly complex and deep rooted issues.

We are seeking candidates who bring in-depth knowledge and understanding of countries and societies in sub-Saharan Africa, professional experience of working in the HIV sector, and excellent project management experience relevant to CIFF's portfolio. You have clear written and verbal communication skills, and a track record of shaping and building highly effective partnerships. A background in the business sector or resource mobilization would be helpful, and you will bring innovative thinking, intellectual curiosity, resilience and focus on finding impactful solutions.
