AMF's net distributions continue to grow and with this comes the need for us to analyse the data we receive to ensure every distribution has the maximum impact. We are now seeking exceptional candidates for the role of Data Analyst.
Reporting to AMF’s Operations Manager, and working closely with all the other members of the AMF team, the successful candidate will have strong technical skills but also be open, collegiate and enjoy working in a small, highly impactful team.
The Data Analyst will have exceptional organisational and analytical skills, together with a bias for identifying and solving issues. They will have strong attention to detail and excel capability, appreciate the importance of visual presentation of material for clarity and an interest in using data to improve health outcomes for the poorest communities. They will be comfortable learning about financial matters, and be willing to examine budgets in detail.
Prior experience in international development is not necessary. For the right candidate AMF would be willing for them to have flexible working arrangements.
The current members of the AMF team are based in their home offices, and it would be ideal if the Data Analyst is able to do the same. The successful candidate is likely to be in the UK/Europe/Africa time zones.
We are delighted to say we have now reached a cumulative total since AMF started of 75 million nets funded or able to be funded!
This has been possible through the support of 111,000 people in 189 countries who have made 348,468 donations. Thank you!
Once all are distributed, these nets, protecting 135 million people, can be expected to prevent the deaths of 50,000 to 70,000 people and avert 50 to 70 million cases of malaria.
Our first net distribution was in 2006 and was of 3,000 nets and our largest distribution to date has been of 12.8m nets in 2017. The total number of nets distributed or planned for distribution is 41.5m nets and distributions totalling more than 30m nets are being assessed now. The net distributions we now fund are multiple millions of nets at a time as this is the way we can best contribute to the fight against malaria.
There is a significant gap between the nets we can fund and the requests we currently have so we will continue to work hard to contribute all we can to close the net gap.
