We have an excellent opportunity for you to work in a DFID funded project COUNTDOWN to support the team with quantitative research and analysis and support data management. You will be responsible to review and report data from partners, facilitate timely submission of data and ensure COUNTDOWN data are available to the third party.

As a Data Manager you will act as a document controller for SOP’s and protocol dissemination, monitor data quality, compile and disseminate progress reports for the COUNTDOWN programme management along with communicating with partners for errors and agreed deadlines.

    • Experience of writing protocols and standard operating procedures

It is preferred if you have demonstrable knowledge of Global Health and challenges of working in resource poor settings but working in lower- and middle-income countries is desirable.
