Living Goods works to reinvent how we improve the lives of the under-served. We think big, but operate small and nimble. We train community health workers to bring life-saving products and healthcare to people’s doorsteps. Products like medicines, fortified foods, and modern contraceptives.
We also transform community health through mobile phones. We teach community health workers how to assess maternal and child health and treat common illnesses like pneumonia, malaria, malnutrition, and diarrhea. We also develop smart phone apps to guide community health worker visits and create predictive algorithms to make the best use of their time. And we test new tools like paperless referrals to clinics and biosensors to monitor infant and child growth.
At Living Goods, you will have the chance to apply your ideas and creativity at work every day. If you work well in a dynamic collaborative culture, set high standards, and meet challenges with determination and a sense of humor, you’ll thrive here.
Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?
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.
