Who we are looking for:
You are passionate about rural development and making a difference for the less well-off.
At least 5 years of relevant progressive experiences in leading teams in a business. That is from managing a team of field officers to managing managers who supervise field officers. (Direct sales experience or work with sales teams is not a must)
A relevant bachelor degree is required.
You have interacted with a wide range of people and teams. Your leadership style focuses on people management and talent development.
You are analytical and know how to troubleshoot an issue and draw insights.
You have a good track record of coaching and developing people to reach difficult goals.
You have deep knowledge about rural communities, their culture and their decision making.
You know how to identify capacity gaps in teams and think through interventions (training and otherwise) to fill them.
You are energized by interacting with people, and enjoy spending a lot of time in the field and outdoors.
You are a team player who leads by example and excellent at listening and building trust and long-lasting relationships with clients and within teams.
You are self-driven, highly organised and able to operate independently towards set targets.
Excellent spoken and written communication skills in English required. Working knowledge in any local languages (Kipsigis, Luo, Gusii) are an added advantage.
You are willing to roll up your sleeves and help out wherever needed to solve arising problems and harness business opportunities.
Willingness to live, work and travel in Nyanza & South Rift region to easily access our branches and clients.
When we talk about supporting the branches, we don’t mean on the phone! There will be a lot of travelling! Each of the branches needs to be visited on a regular basis and once you’re done with one the next visit is waiting! For easy access to our branches, you could be based in or around Kisii for easier access to all parts of the region.
