Join our Community Health Strengthening Team
Location: Team members will be based in Nairobi, Kenya and in Kampala, Uganda.
Living Goods aims to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved people by ensuring every woman and child has access to basic community health. We have developed a model for community health that has been independently proven to reduce child mortality by 27%. And we do this extremely cost-effectively at a net cost of less than $2 per person per year. Our goal now is to spread impact by strengthening community health systems across the developing world. But to achieve multi-national scale and to truly create systemic change, we need to do more than grow our own direct operations. We must also spread impact through strategic partnerships with government and NGOs.
Living Goods partners closely with the Governments of Kenya and Uganda to improve community health in areas where we have direct operations. We are also spreading impact and strengthening community health systems through assisted networks led by Governments and NGO partners including BRAC, Care International, the Clinton Foundation, Marie Stopes, and PSI. We seek to build on this success and in a big way, particularly working more closely with government. That’s where you come in!
We are recruiting for several new senior Partnership Management roles to join our growing Community Health Strenthening team (CHST) in identifying, developing and managing partnerships in new and existing countries. This role involves a range of activities including cultivating new opportunities aligned with government priorities, building relationships with potential implementing partners including technology providers and designing Living Goods’ interventions in new countries. You will lay the groundwork for Living Goods to support community health systems strengthening in new countries, and will typically oversee a handover to our start-up operations team and in some cases, help with the start-up of new country operations. This is a flexible, exciting role and one that is squarely positioned both at the heart of Living Goods’ strategy, and at the leading edge of our drive towards transformative change. As Living Goods is growing rapidly, this role will continue to evolve and we are open to shaping roles to fit people’s strengths and interests.
The ideal candidate is an accomplished, results-focused professional with vision and entrepreneurial spirit. This is a full-time role, based in either Nairobi, Kenya or Kampala, Uganda. You will be part of the Community Health Strengthen Team, but will also have a dotted line to the Country Director for any work based in our current countries, and can expect up to 50% travel.
Qualifications and Experience
