Join Our Team

The Task Force is a dynamic, fast-paced organization where collaboration, compassion, and mutual respect are the rules of thumb. We’re looking for exceptionally talented and passionate professionals who share a commitment to our mission, vision, and action-oriented approach.

One of our greatest strengths is our diversity of talent and ideas. We support the principles of equal opportunity and equal representation. We recruit people with the best combinations of education, training, and professional experience needed for the work that we do. Many of our team members are bi-lingual or multi-lingual, reflecting the international nature of our work.

Although most programmatic positions require a public health background, we actively recruit people from the other fields who can leverage their skills for our work.

We nurture the growth of our staff including supporting professional development to build technical and leadership skills. Many positions have opportunities for advancement within programs. Because our programs include positions with similar functions our team members can pursue different opportunities across the organization.

We’re a Mission-Driven Organization

The Task Force is a mission-driven, entrepreneurial culture. We work in teams to solve the toughest global health problems. The nature of our work requires our team members to be flexible and willing to take on new challenges without hesitation. We are not a process-focused organization – and pride ourselves in translating new ideas into effective actions that improve health outcomes.

We practice high levels of collaboration within and among all of our programs. We regularly share updates and best practices with one another, and identify opportunities for increasing our collective impact.

Our culture is collegial and we focus on building relationships in the workplace. As a result, we recognize exceptional contributions, but practice a high degree of humility. The people whom we serve are always our focus. We are unrelenting and optimistic about the prospects for a healthier world.
