Chief Ethics Officer

The Global Fund

The Chief Ethics Officer will have a dual reporting line, reporting to the Board through its Ethics & Governance Committee, and to the Executive Director. As head of the Ethics function, the Chief Ethics Officer leads a team of specialists, which works with the Board, its Committees, the Office of the Inspector General and the Secretariat, notably the Grant Management Division, the Risk Management Department, the Legal and Governance Department, the Human Resources Department and the Supply Operations Department. Working in collaboration with such partners, the Chief Ethics Officer is responsible for integrating ethics and integrity risk management and reporting into the Global Fund’s decision-making and operational processes, and monitors the adequacy of controls around ethics and integrity at all levels across the Global Fund partnership, including partners and recipients. The Chief Ethics Officer also takes the lead in responding to any potential ethical issues which might arise, working in coordination with relevant partners, including the Office of the Inspector General. The Chief Ethics Officer must therefore develop an in-depth understanding of the way the Global Fund partnership works, including Board governance, Secretariat operations and partnership dynamics.

The Global Fund is seeking an exceptional person to be its Chief Ethics Officer and lead the Ethics function — someone with substantial experience of implementing ethics and integrity-related policies and assurance across diverse operational footprints; demonstrable ability to develop and lead a high-performing team; established skills in effectively engaging with complex governance and partnership systems; and proven capacity to collaborate with executive leadership colleagues to deliver change. The Chief Ethics Officer must be able to provide vision and strategic leadership for the Ethics function, plus domain expertise on a broad range of ethics and integrity issues, including protection from sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment, conflicts of interest and fraud and corruption. The Chief Ethics Officer should bring a track record of effective delivery, underpinned by a pragmatic and engaged approach to collaborating with partners, stakeholders, and colleagues.
