Job title: Learning and Development Coordinator
Reports to: Senior Manager, Leadership Development
Location: Geneva, Switzerland
Availability: As soon as possible
The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is a non-government organisation based in Geneva which serves an international and diverse population of cancer organisations to unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda. We have achieved this by building a membership base of over thousand organisations and engaging in partnerships with more than 60 organisations across the UN, academic, health and private sector.
UICC convenes members and partners to encourage collaboration and new thinking through keystone events (World Cancer Congress, World Cancer Leaders’ Summit and World Cancer Day). Through our capacity building activities, UICC supports its members do a better job tomorrow than they do today and increase their impact by scaling up their relevance, reach and sustainability in their own settings. With our members and partners, we drive forward the key advocacy priorities building upon key international agreements (the Sustainable Development Goals, the Global Action Plan on NCDs and the 2017 Cancer Resolution at the World Health Assembly) to ensure that these global goals and targets are translated into national action.
UICC has a team of 45 people based predominantly in Geneva, Switzerland led by a CEO, reporting to a Board of Directors. It has an annual income of approximately $10m and has plans to grow significantly in the coming years. The UICC works in new offices in Geneva situated close to the United Nations and the World Health Organisation, with whom it has formal relations.
Capacity Building is one of the three key pillars of UICC’s work, alongside Advocacy and Convening. Through the development of specific capacity building initiatives and programmes, UICC seeks to create an influential cancer community with the skills, knowledge, and networks to achieve effective cancer prevention and control. Within the Capacity Building portfolio, there are four key workstreams; leadership development; learning; grants and fellowships; building capacity for advocacy, with a cross-cutting emphasis on regional engagement.
The Learning and Development Coordinator will have responsibility for the coordination and administration of a range of learning and development activities, both online and face-to-face, within the leadership development, and learning workstreams of the Capacity Building team, under the supervision of the Senior Manager, Leadership Development.
The Coordinator will also support the external promotion of Capacity Building programmes and opportunities through the development of relevant communication content and materials.
Duties and responsibilities of the Learning and Development Coordinator include, but are not necessarily limited to:
Programme coordination and support
General logistics and administrative support
