Description

The Candidate

GHC is looking for a talented and fresh multi-disciplinary Designer to join our global team. You have a keen design eye, a passion for delivering impact through creative visuals, and the strong groundwork for a killer print and digital design portfolio. You are entrepreneurial—hungry for a range of opportunities to cut your teeth as a social-impact designer, learning from colleagues and collaborating across a global, mission-driven, and fast-paced team. You are highly detail oriented and able to execute on several projects at once, with the ability to communicate clearly and ask questions needed in order to keep the trains moving. You are a self-starter, staying current with emergent trends and platforms and taking the initiative to create branding and design innovations. But you are also an excellent listener and learner, with the humility and customer service approach to understand the needs of our team and support them in a timely manner.

 

If you’re passionate about our vision for new global health leadership and want to be part of the movement for health equity, bringing your technical excellence and keen design eye to further our impact, let’s talk! We thrive in challenging situations, where our task is to do what hasn’t been done and where we must dismantle or rebuild systems that propagate inefficiency and inequity. We have the vision to think big, and the resilience and can-do attitude to do what it takes to get there. You should too. The Designer sits on GHC’s Communications Team, reporting to the Vice President of Strategy and Communications, while collaborating closely with colleagues across teams in all GHC countries of operation. 


Global Health Corps

Global Health Corps (GHC) is building a new generation of global health leadership. We believe that solving the world’s most pressing global health challenges requires better and more connected leaders who are able to work across traditional boundaries like geography, sector, and issue area to engineer stronger global health systems. We need more than clinicians and providers; we need management consultants, engineers, artists, and architects. We need new leadership voices and new perspectives, especially those representing the populations most often left out and unheard.


GHC competitively recruits and selects emerging leaders from around the world who represent a wide range of skillsets and areas of expertise, all of which are critical to rebuilding and strengthening health systems. GHC is developing a cadre of health equity leaders through a unique leadership development program that utilizes experiential and formal learning methods.


Through a one-year fellowship program, fellows address a wide-range of health issues with high-impact grassroots organizations, NGOs, and ministries of health in Rwanda, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and the United States. Fellowship positions are demand-driven, ensuring that our fellows fill real-time health systems gaps and serve to amplify the great work already in progress. Placement organizations benefit from the skills and energy of fellows, as well as the support of GHC. We are building a network of young changemakers who share the common belief that health is a human right.
