Job Title: Kumasi City Manager
Report To: C/Can 2025 Africa Regional Director
Location: Remote from Kumasi, Ghana
Availability: From January 2018
UICC is spearheading an ambitious new challenge to support cities to lead on cancer solutions. ‘C/Can 2025’ is a truly multi-sectoral challenge where all city stakeholders will be engaged in the design, planning and implementation of cancer treatment solutions and cities will be encouraged and supported to take the lead on improving the health of their citizens and reducing inequities in access to quality cancer care. C/Can 2025 has been conceived to address the urgent need to move political commitments made at the global level into fully functional, comprehensive cancer solutions, which can reach the majority of the world’s population. C/Can 2025 is the inaugural initiative in a broader coordinated effort to support cities to lead on solutions for NCDs that meet the needs of their citizens. The global target to reduce premature deaths from NCDs by 25% by 2025 has been a call to mobilise national action. However, focusing solely on NCD risk factors alone will not reduce cancer mortality rates by 2025. We must also drive improvements in early detection and treatment.
In order to support city-level implementation of C/Can 2025, UICC is seeking a consultant to manage and coordinate activities in Kumasi, Ghana. This position will provide on-site administrative and logistical support to UICC and its key partners in Kumasi, and act as a liaison between Kumasi stakeholders and the C/Can 2025 regional and global team.
Applicants must be eligible to live in Ghana. Preference will be given to those based in Kumasi.

Deadline for applications: 30 November 2017
