Job Opportunities: Planning Officers International Health
As an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations, the federally owned Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its development-policy objectives. It provides viable, forward-looking solutions for political, economic, ecological and social development in a globalised world. GTZ has more than 30 years of international experience in supporting socially oriented reform processes in the health sector. It advises and supports its partners in designing, implementing and evaluating complex reform processes in their health system at all levels, because only a socially just, effective and economically efficient health care system can contribute to poverty reduction in the long term.
To strengthen our Health Section we are seeking to employ, at the earliest opportunity, Planning Officers with various qualifications from the national and international health sector who will work independently with a high level of commitment and in spirit of cooperation to shape the activities of a diverse professional team.
Within the framework of appraisals or on short-term and long-term assignments, you will work at GTZ Head Office in Eschborn near Frankfurt am Main/Germany or in our partner countries. The priorities of the Health Sector are focused on sectoral policy advice and improving the performance capability of health systems. In particular this applies to the fields of health promotion, disease control, health care, quality management at all levels and health system financing. The Health Section cooperates with numerous national and international development organisations, nongovernmental organisations and universities, and is integrated into national and international networks.
Your tasks: You support the technical design of new bilateral cooperation projects/programmes and are responsible for the provision of technical and conceptual advisory services to projects/programmes during their implementation. You apply your know-how and professional skills to open up new themes and to develop them further, either on your own or in a team. You prepare specifications for studies and contribute to active knowledge management between the projects/programmes in partner countries and Head Office in Eschborn. You support project/programme management, particularly in the fields of planning, monitoring and evaluation. Expanding and maintaining links with national and international organisations likewise falls within your area of responsibility. Other important addressees of your work are various divisions within the company and sectoral and regional divisions of the Federal German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), as well as other bilateral and m
ultilateral donors and the implementing organisations of German development cooperation.
Your qualifications: You have a university degree, preferably in health sciences or social sciences. You have completed supplementary training in health planning, health policy and/or health financing or you have another relevant postgraduate qualification (e.g. public health, public policy) and have gathered several years of professional experience. You have worked in development cooperation and are familiar with the instruments used. In addition to broad background knowledge in this sector, you also have specific expertise, for example in health system development, quality management or health planning and financing. You have a firm grasp of the international health policy framework and are familiar with key approaches adopted in national health reforms. Team-work is one of your strengths; you thrive in an innovative environment and are interested in developing and implementing new, demand-oriented and culturally appropriate concepts and strategies. You are expected to possess i
ntercultural competence and management skills and to be able to work under stress and independently. Mastery of English is a requirement, and knowledge of French or Spanish is desirable.
Benefits offered: You will work in an international atmosphere as part of an interdisciplinary and motivated team, receive an appropriate salary and enjoy a superior package of employee benefits.
