    Consultant Opportunity in Johannesburg, South Africa

    OSISA Terms of Reference

    Objective

    The overall objective of this assignment is to facilitate the process of reviewing, together with staff, OSISA’s culture, power dynamics and the experiences of staff with the aim of helping the organization develop a new values aligned working culture and set of practices that will improve the health of organisational relationships and the quality of experience for staff.

    This pertains especially to women in the organization and the envisaged exercise will enable healthy, collaborative power and transformative leadership styles that enable effective power sharing in the organization towards full accountability and responsibility at all levels.

    Background

    The Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) is a growing African institution committed to deepening democracy, protecting human rights and enhancing good governance in the region.

    OSISA's vision is to promote and sustain the ideals, values, institutions and practices of open society, with the aim of establishing vibrant and tolerant southern African democracies in which people, free from material and other deprivation, understand their rights and responsibilities and participate actively in all spheres of life.

    Established in 1997, OSISA works in 10 southern Africa countries: Angola, Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. OSISA works differently in each of these 10 countries, according to local conditions.

    OSISA is part of a network of autonomous Open Society Foundations, established by George Soros, located in Eastern and Central Europe, the former Soviet Union, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the US.

    In its operations (internally and externally) OSISA aspires to “espouse the values and principles of integrity, diversity, equality, hard work, tolerance, excellence, respect and growth in its pursuit of open society ideals in Southern Africa.”[1] One major form of equality that the organisation has explicitly pursued is gender equality, given the hegemony of patriarchy in the region within which it operates.

    There has been a clear focus on promoting and protecting women’s rights, internally and externally.

    To this end, OSISA seeks the services of (an) experienced feminist organisational development practitioner(s) to unpack, explore and embed leadership models that allow for both women and men to thrive in OSISA.

    Scope of Work

    Under the direct supervision of the Women’s Rights Programme Manager and the Human Resources Unit, the consultant will lead OSISA staff in a process of unpacking and understanding the gendered gaps identified through previous assessments undertaken by OSISA.

    The organisation now seeks the services of a strong feminist organisational development practitioner/facilitator(s) to unpack and explore (together with the organisation) how we can embed feminist transformative leadership and change the experience of powerlessness especially among women staff.

    We envisage this process being a fully-fledged programme that will undertake a feminist analysis and exploration of (but not limited to) the following aspects, and to what extent they enable the embodiment of feminist values of equality, equity, respect and integrity:

  • Vision, mission and values
  • Theory of change
  • Key strategies
  • Organisational structure
  • Organisational culture
  • Systems, processes and procedures
  • Staffing policies, procedures and processes
  • Skills, capacities and competences

    The envisaged programme aims to achieve a number of objectives including (among others):

  • Assisting staff to understand gendered power dynamics and resultant behaviours for both male and female staff in the workspace;
  • Equipping staff with the skills to unpack the various forms of power (visible, hidden and invisible) as well as various expressions of power (power to, power with, power within, power over etc.) in leadership and in the work place;
  • Assisting staff understand the different realms in which power operates; and how this extends/manifests in the workplace;
  • Assisting the organisation to construct alternative models of power and inculcating an ethos of transformative power, leadership and principles across the organisation at individual and collective levels;
  • Enabling staff to understand and make the linkages between organisational structure, power and work towards more open, democratic and a safe work place.
  • Creating a culture of respect for women’s rights and women’s self and collective leadership;
  • Transforming the organisational structure, culture, power dynamics and the experience of staff, especially women in the organisation to enable healthy collaborative power and transformative leadership styles that enable effective power sharing.

    In light of the above, the consultant will be entrusted with the following deliverables:

    Deliverable 1

    A clear, comprehensive and systematic staff development programme that is transformative in design and objective, and is tailored to effectively respond to the challenges of women and men in OSISA Johannesburg, Angola and DRC offices, and across levels of leadership;

    Deliverable 2

    A clearly defined strategy to implement the proposed staff development programme; incorporating reflections on team/unit functioning in relation to gender dynamics; and a clear process that enables a commitment/code/ policies/ processes that ensure the organisation consciously integrates this work.

    Deliverable 3

    A clearly defined resourcing plan to guide the organisation in rolling out the programme;

    Deliverable 4

    Development of tools, resources and materials to accompany the programme;

    Deliverable 5

    Implementation of the programme

    Consultant Qualifications

  • Demonstrable and proven experience in organisational development;
  • Proven experience fostering feminist ethos and practice in organisations in the global South;
  • Sound knowledge and understanding of the politics and dynamics of the region
  • Knowledge of and appreciation of coaching experience would be an added advantage

    How to apply:

    Interested applicants are requested to submit their applications including:

  • A cover letter detailing their understanding of the scope of the assignment and a motivation,
  • Curriculum vitae, and
  • A portfolio of evidence

    By 5 October 2016 to the following email address: consultants@osisa.org with the relevant vacancy title as the subject heading.

    Program Manager, Health Financing Job in Gauteng, South Africa

    Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses.

    Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management.

    Unlike other implementers, CHAI does not operate stand-alone programs, nor does it build parallel health systems. Rather, CHAI works at the invitation and in support of governments.

    We focus on large-scale impact and have secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries, including cutting the costs of Viral Load laboratory tests by 50% in South Africa. CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective health care.

    CHAI's health financing program is working with 10 governments to substantially and sustainably improve access to and utilization of essential health services for their populations. These governments are committed to increasing access, but face financial barriers to doing so.

    Financing for health is often insufficient, inefficiently spent and overly reliant on donor funding, which is not sustainable. Healthcare providers face stock-outs, ration services among patients and charge informal or formal user fees, which can act as a deterrent for patients, and particularly the poor, to seek care when needed.

    CHAI's approach includes working on a day to day basis with senior leadership and technical staff in Ministries of Health from the national to subnational level and at the facility level, in order to address financial barriers to access to health services.

    This includes supporting decisions to define health priorities, quantify resource gaps and secure resources for these priorities from donor and domestic sources, moving towards aid independence over time.

    In countries like Ethiopia and South Africa, CHAI is supporting roll-out of national health insurance. In countries like Malawi and Swaziland, CHAI is working with governments to improve how the available general revenue and donor resources are managed through existing financial management systems.

    CHAI is looking for a Program Manager with relevant experience in health financing, and ideally public financial management, to provide technical, strategic and management support to design and implementation of health financing programs in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, including Cameroon, Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Myanmar.

    Please note that while the base location is flexible, this role will include up to 60-70% travel and will support multiple country locations in Africa and Asia.

    Placement is flexible per leadership approval with preference for CHAI program country in Southern and Eastern Africa.

    This is a challenging, fast-paced and rewarding position. The Program Manager will be part of a small global health financing team. He or she will work closely with in-country teams strengthening the ability of Ministries of Health to design and implement financial management and other health financing reforms.

    He or she will also contribute to shape CHAI's health financing strategy and emerging programs and priorities in areas such as health insurance and public financial management.

    Key responsibilities include the following:

  • Work with country teams to support partner governments on design and roll-out of health financing reforms and interventions to strengthen financial management;
  • Design and implement new tools and processes for improved budgeting or resource allocation and performance management, and support their institutionalization within governments;
  • Support country teams to undertake research and quantitative analyses and to present results to inform senior management decisions that improve efficiency, effectiveness, equity and sustainability of health financing;
  • Research methods used in the roll-out of health financing reforms in other countries and support adaptation of lessons to new contexts;
  • Collaborate and share work with global, regional and national stakeholders, through day to day work as well as presentations at key global fora;
  • Onboard, train and provide day to day troubleshooting support to CHAI staff in health financing, financial modeling and other areas as needed;
  • Provide strategic support to country program managers in work planning, monitoring and evaluation and management;
  • Support monitoring and evaluation across CHAI country programs, as well as reporting to donors;
  • Contribute to knowledge management activities internally and disseminate methods and lessons learned through internal and external materials including peer-reviewed publications;
  • Other responsibilities as requested by manager.

    Qualifications include the following:

  • A minimum of 5-7+ years of experience in a relevant field (e.g. financial management, health economics, health insurance) in the public or private sector with increasing responsibilities;
  • Advanced degree in health economics, public health, public policy, economics or other relevant disciplines preferred; or Bachelor's degree with exceptional experience.
  • Experience working in developing countries and with governments an advantage;
  • Project management experience, including program design and execution as well as monitoring and evaluation;
  • Strong strategic and problem solving skills, including excellent analytical and quantitative skills;
  • Strong writer, facilitator and oral communicator able to explain complex concepts to a variety of audiences;
  • Ability to work independently, self-motivate and propose new initiatives;
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously and quickly adapt to changing priorities;
  • Full proficiency of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint;
  • Strong interpersonal skills and proven ability to build relationships in a multicultural environment; and
  • English language fluency.
