Job Opportunity at VillageReach, Event Planning and Travel Logistics Consultant

Event Planning and Travel Logistics Consultant



VillageReach is a non-profit that works with governments to transform health care delivery to reach everyone by developing solutions that increase access to products and services for the most under-reached. We develop solutions that improve equity by providing pathways to primary healthcare, making health products available when and where they are needed, and working with governments to drive sustained impact at scale. VillageReach works in a number of countries across sub-Saharan Africa, with country offices in Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, and the United States.

VillageReach’s Supply Chain Integrators is a catalytic investment to build health supply chains that are demand-driven, resilient, and integrated. Integration goes beyond vertical to horizontal product integration, as the term is often used, broadening it to include the many ways integration improves supply chain performance, including the integration of the private sector into public sector delivery models and the integration of a range of funders at multiple levels. Primary health care (PHC) systems, and the supply chains that support them, require leaders with the ability to integrate them: to weave together seemingly disparate programs and actors in a way that strengthens the whole.

A key component of this investment is collaboration and attendance at relevant conferences. We are planning a 3-4 day internal retreat in South Africa and attendance at multiple other events. To that end, VillageReach seeks a Consultant for:

  • Event planning for a 3-4 day retreat
  • Support for scheduling, preparing/organizing/coordinating an agenda, gathering supplies and potentially content as needed
  • Logistical coordination for up to 30 travelers
  • Provide logistical support for staff and sponsored guests around other upcoming events

The consultant will perform the following:

  • Prepare, in collaboration with the VillageReach team, a retreat agenda.
  • Event planning, including the reservation of conference rooms, gathering supplies, arranging transport, and other duties as assigned.
  • Travel coordination including flight reservation, hotel reservation, arranging transport, and other duties as assigned.

This independent consulting agreement will last for up to 3 months, with a goal of completing activities by end November.
