The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) is the overarching alliance for the global eye care sector. It represents more than 150 organisations in over 100 countries. Our vision is a world in which everyone has access to the best possible standard of eye health; where no one is needlessly visually impaired; and where those with irreparable vision loss achieve their full potential.

The role

The IAPB Valued Supplier Scheme (VSS), launched in 2020, provides recommended vision and eye health products, technologies and services to assist buyers, particularly those from low and middle income countries, to make informed procurement decisions.  The Scheme brings together quality eye care suppliers and showcases products and services best suited for eye care delivery in public health settings.  The Valued Supplier Scheme (previously the Standard List) has been operating for nearly 40 years and fills a critical gap in connecting and enabling service delivery in the sector.

The Valued Supplier Scheme Manager will be at the forefront of managing our existing valued suppliers and the close connections to buyers in the sector.

The role will be responsible for all aspects of the management of the scheme including the promotion of Valued Suppliers, management of the website, new supplier recruitment, onboarding, vetting, and being an active member of our key working groups.

This is a global role and could be based anywhere in the world. If you have a background in eye health equipment or service delivery and you would like to join a global team in this exciting and key role.

Expected salary band

40,000-50,000 British pounds (adjusted to role-equivalent in selected candidate’s location).

Why work with us?

Work for purpose, know that your work contributes to creating a world where no one is needlessly visually impaired, where everyone has access to the best possible standard of eye health; and where those with irreparable vision loss achieve their full potential.
