Since 1994, the Alliance and its partners have supported over 3,000 projects, in over 40 countries, reaching millions of people.
 
The Alliance’s Linking Organisation model emphasises local leadership and governance of organisations. In light of this, the Alliance seeks to recruit an Executive Director (ED) to head its operations in South Sudan.
 
The Executive Director’s overall responsibilities will be strategic leadership, development and effective operation of Alliance South Sudan.

S/he will report initially to the Regional Manager: East and Southern Africa at the Alliance Secretariat in Brighton, UK and after the transition will report directly to the Board of Directors.
 
The ED will manage senior staff, provide leadership on policy matters and strategy development, resource mobilisation, partnership development and will advocate on key HIV issues at national and international levels with stakeholders.
