Established in 2003, the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is a collaborative, patients’ needs-driven, non-profit drug research and development (R&D) organization that is developing new treatments for neglected populations (www.dndi.org), working with and enhancing existing research capacity in endemic countries, and advocating for public leadership and public-interest driven R&D to help end the neglect. After 15 years of sustained growth, DNDi has built a team of approximately 200 full-time employees working across nine offices (Geneva, Rio de Janeiro, Kinshasa, Nairobi, New Delhi, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Tokyo, and Cape Town).

Purpose of the position

DNDi has recently finalized a new Microsoft Powerpoint (PPT) template for the organization and is seeking a graphic designer with expertise in PPT, a good capacity for message-linked design, and an eye for detail to:

  • Convert existing slide sets into the new PPT template and refresh content, in keeping with visual branding guidelines;
  • Create new graphics for use in slides;
  • Develop new slides on identified topics, with content input from DNDi; and
  • (Depending on the consultant’s location) lead or advise on a short tutorial for staff on best practices in using PPT and the new template.
