We are looking for one project intern to come and help us with our work on the Advocacy to Control TB Internationally project, working with our TB folks on our domestic and international advocacy. Click here for full info.
RESULTS is recruiting for a flexible, dynamic and collaborative advocate to support two core areas of RESULTS’ work: our campaigns on education and global health. The job, which will be called ‘GCE and Special Projects Coordinator’, plays a central role within RESULTS, and will involve working closely with external contacts including parliamentarians, and education and health campaigners in other organisations.
The role is split in two halves. 50% of the post-holder’s time will be allocated to coordinating the Global Campaign for Education UK Coalition, including support for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Education for All, and 50% will be spent delivering special projects and support for the ACTION (Advocacy to Control Tuberculosis Internationally) Project, which campaigns to scale up provision of key public health interventions to fight tuberculosis and other killer diseases.
Please have a look at the jobs page for more information – the deadline for applications is 21st November.
Someone dies of TB every 20 seconds, and 2.4 million children die every year from vaccine-preventable diseases. The world’s failure to adequately address TB and other diseases of poverty is due in large part to a lack of political will. There is therefore an urgent need to scale up advocacy capacities in both donor and low-income countries to demand greater leadership and accountability on TB and the delivery of vaccines.
Since 2005, RESULTS UK has been involved in ‘Advocacy to Control TB Internationally’ (ACTION), a partnership of advocates around the world working to mobilise greater resources and political commitment for the control of TB. The ACTION network seeks to address and reverse the global TB problem by implementing cutting-edge, results-based advocacy and communication strategies. Activities to date have included educating policymakers and key leaders, cultivating TB champions, generating media, organising fact-finding trips for decision makers, conducting policy research and building strategic partnerships.
For many years, RESULTS has also been supporting work on increasing funding for vaccines. Recently, this work has been incorporated into the work of the ACTION project, making a unique global advocacy partnership with a dual focus on both TB and vaccinations as key public health interventions.
With the broadening of the ACTION Project to include work on vaccines, RESULTS is looking to recruit a Global Health Advocacy Manager to lead our high-level policy and advocacy activities in these two issue areas, as well as a Vaccine Advocacy Coordinator to lead on the implementation of vaccine advocacy activities in the UK and abroad.

We are sorry to announce that Mike Smith, the Coordinator of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global TB, based at RESULTS UK, will be leaving us next month for a new role. The APPG has hugely benefited from his support over the last year – Mike was key in rebuilding the APPG following the election which left so many existing members unable to continue, and his dedication and professionalism have been without peer. We will be sorry to see him go.
This means that the APPG is currently looking to recruit a new Coordinator who will take over this role working with parliamentarians to influence this important international development and public health issue.
Tuberculosis is a curable disease which kills 1.7million people every year, mostly in the poorest countries in the world. TB rates in the UK have also been increasing in recent decades. The APPG on Global TB works to raise the profile of the global TB epidemic (including in the UK) and to help accelerate efforts to meet Millennium Development Goal targets on TB.
The position will involve working with Officers and other members of the APPG to raise the profile of TB in Parliament and make tackling TB a priority for the UK. It will involve, but will certainly not be limited to, the day-to-day running of the group, generating interest among parliamentarians, identifying opportunities to influence policy and helping to deliver parliamentary campaigns.
The ideal candidate for the post will have experience of working in the UK Parliament, particularly co-ordinating the work of Parliamentary Groups; excellent project management and communication skills; and, of course, a passion and commitment to the cause of eradicating TB globally and in the UK.

If you’ve ever wanted to take a couple of months and come work for RESULTS, now is your chance. Last year we were incredibly lucky to be selected as one of the organisations to benefit from the Vodafone World of Difference programme, where a volunteer is funded by the Vodafone Foundation to volunteer at a charity of their choice for a two month period. Over the two months, the Vodafone foundation provides funding to the volunteer so the “volunteer” post is actually paid! Continue reading
