Advisor: Organisational Development (Global Fund MENA, PMU)




About the role

We are looking for dynamic, skilled and committed Advisor: Organisational Development to join the Programme Management Unit, which will be hosted by the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality (AFEMENA) in Beirut, Lebanon. This will be on a three year fixed-term contract.

The Advisor: Organisational Development will play a vital role in ensuring the successful implementation of this high profile grant through delivering capacity building and strengthening interventions across the partners. The right candidate will have a balance of organisational development knowledge and experience, an understanding of HIV and human rights in the MENA context and the ability to work effectively with a range of civil society organisations in the region.

Frontline AIDS has been appointed the principle recipient of a large 3-year grant from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

This exciting new three-year programme (2019-2021) will increase sustainability of HIV services for marginalised people in the Middle East and North Africa region. Funded by a $7.5m grant from The Global Fund, the programme will be implemented in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia by eight partners (one per country and three operating at regional level).


About us

We’ve been on the frontline of the world’s response to HIV and AIDS for 25 years, working with marginalised people who are denied HIV prevention and treatment simply because of who they are and where they live.
Set up in 1993 to work with community groups in the countries most affected by the global AIDS epidemic, we’ve continually adapted our approach, looking for innovative ways to break down the barriers that marginalise people living with, or at risk of acquiring, HIV. All with one goal in mind – a future free from AIDS for everyone, everywhere.

Everything we do is rooted in our two key beliefs:

• That the lives of all human beings are of equal value.

• That everyone has the right to access the HIV information and services they need for a healthy life.

Today, we work with communities in more than 40 countries, taking local, national and global action on HIV, health and human rights.

As a global partnership that is open to everyone, we can only do what we do – and achieve what we want to achieve – by working with partners from grassroots community groups to national governments. Our partners drive change where it matters, shaking up the status quo and making a noise on issues the world often chooses to ignore.


Are you the Frontliner we’re looking for?

You are a committed team member with a clear focus on team objectives, as well as your own. You will promote best practice within your field of expertise and challenge ways of working to ensure the highest quality and levels of efficiency. Your actions will be aligned with Frontline AIDS vision and you will inspire the same behaviour in your peers. You are comfortable working in a matrix management environment.
