    Talent Services Lead


    About the Team

    Over the last year, Komaza’s team has grown from 150 to 450 people across Kilifi and Kwale Counties, with plans to double again in the next 18 months. Our Talent Services team enables and supports all office and field staff with benefits and salary administration as well as all the “traditional” HR responsibilities. The department also collects and analyzes employee and work related data, and develop solutions and systems that improve the employees’ productivity work environment. We combine innovative modern HR practices with a customer service mentality to support our rapidly growing team.

    About This Role

    People are what drives every aspect of Komaza. Komaza is in the midst of an aggressive expansion phase which will continue for the next few years. Systems need to be built and amazing work has to be accomplished. Komaza wouldn’t have been able to accomplish what we have, without the support of amazing people. The Talent Services  team functions as an enabler as well as a support for this team. Innovative and modern HR practices combined with a customer service mentality is what makes it possible for the Komaza team to work and build the future of forestry. The Talent Services team makes sure that the organization is compliant with any laws and regulations, while at the same time works hard to create and maintain a growth and development oriented work environment.

    The Talent Services Lead is directly responsible for growing and developing the TS (Talent Services) team, systems, and policies. In addition, the TS Lead, together with the TS team will transform the HR function into a customer service function. This role requires somebody who has extensive HR experience in East Africa, has the labor laws and other acts at their fingertips and knows how policies can affect the workforce.

    • Self-directed and intellectually curious - you know how and when to seek feedback in the pursuit of continuous improvement
    • Growth-obsessed with a strong desire for personal development
    • A collaborative problem solver who seeks the opinions of other teammates and departments in the development of creative and sustainable systems
