Advert Reference Number: 2203-047L
IVCC was established in 2005 with a clear goal – to develop a toolbox of innovative vector control solutions to prevent the transmission of insect-borne diseases. It has an established track record of success and innovation and is now seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive to continue the organisation’s work.
IVCC is the only Product Development Partnership (PDP) working in vector control. Its research and development portfolio spans a broad spectrum of work including Active Ingredient discovery and evaluation, product development, formulation chemistry, entomology, laboratory and field evaluation, as well as access and market shaping. The solutions it develops are primarily concerned with novel public health insecticides for use in/on Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Nets, Indoor Residual Sprays as well as tools preventing outdoor transmission. IVCC is focused on the identification of novel, safe, and efficacious chemistry to address mosquito resistance to insecticides.
Reporting to the IVCC Board of Trustees, the CEO’s main responsibility is to implement IVCC’s mission through the successful development and delivery of the IVCC strategy. The CEO will be both a leader for IVCC and in work on vector control more broadly, leading the delivery of a toolbox of vector control innovations to prevent the transmission of malaria and other vector-borne diseases through product development. Building working relationships across all stakeholder sectors, including industry, the public sector, multilateral and bilateral organisations, and the academic community is essential.
Candidates will bring both an understanding of the scientific substance of IVCC’s work and experience of working with or in industry partners on product research and development. Strong team leadership and management skills are required. The ability to lead through influence across a network will be crucial and the Chief Executive will be a skilled communicator. IVCC has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to advise on this appointment. Potential candidates are invited to consult the Russell Reynolds Associates website at www.rraresponses.com where further particulars and details of how to apply may be found.
