At Living Goods we empower people to improve the health of their families, friends and communities. Living Goods supports networks of ‘Avon-like’ health entrepreneurs who go door to door to teach families how to improve their health and wealth and sell life-changing products such as simple treatments for malaria and diarrhea, safe delivery kits, fortified foods, clean cook stoves, water filters, and solar lights. By combining the best practices from business and public health, we are dramatically lowering child mortality AND creating livelihoods for thousands of enterprising women.
At Living Goods, we know the power of messages. Our community health workers teach mothers about infectious diseases, nutrition, hygiene and family planning, and provide critical access to treatment. Their messages are effective because they educate families and get them to act.
We seek a Communications Manager in Kenya to do for Living Goods what we do for families. We seek someone who can capture and effectively disseminate stories about our programs in Kenya and the Living Goods Corporate office which is based in Kenya, develop attractive and engaging collaterals and presentations, and position our work with key stakeholders through earned and social media. As our lead communicator on the ground, you will also raise awareness about our work – and community health more broadly – at key forums and other public events, while helping to build our reputation as a stellar organization and an innovator. You will also support corporate communications efforts in partnership with our communications director, based in Washington, DC.
As our Kenya Communications Manager, you will help develop compelling success stories and other written materials (e.g. fact sheets, stakeholder reports, case studies) that elucidate our work and amplify our messages. Through your writing and development of multimedia materials, you will connect people to the impact of our work and influence them to take action. You will help build the capacity of staff across the region to effectively support telling the story of Living Goods and the power of community health.
Write well and speak simply. You can distill a complex impact evaluation into key messages and a dense donor update into a readable report. You can take the rough points of a success story and weave them together into a compelling narrative. You know how to hook people’s attention and tell a good story. You have a love of good grammar and strong attention to detail.
A competitive salary and benefits package commensurate with experience including health insurance and bonus opportunity. The opportunity to be your best while making lives better for those in need.
