Job Description

Earlier this year, we opened our first maternity hospital just off Thika Road on the Eastern Bypass before Ruiru. 
In the coming months, Jacaranda will expand substantially, adding new facilities and services as well as refining our current systems.

To achieve these goals, we will need support in a range of areas. We seek candidates for Project Associate roles across several departments:
  1. Growth and expansion: researching new locations for Jacaranda’s growth, searching for suitable properties, negotiating with landlords and property managers, and overseeing elements of construction / other setup
  2. Sales and marketing: testing new sales strategies, developing new marketing materials, etc.
  3. Service offerings and clinical operations: researching the demand for new services, benchmarking against other providers, collecting information about how we can refine our operations, etc.
We are open to candidates with a range of different experiences and qualifications. 
Key skills required include:
  1. Project management: able to develop the key objectives to be achieved in a project, and assign realistic timelines to these steps
  2. External communications: able to represent Jacaranda to external audiences (e.g., property managers, government stakeholders, community leaders) and convey our objectives and needs effectively
  3. Data gathering: able to compile key information from other health facilities, clients, and other sources and summarize for Jacaranda management
Successful candidates will need to have multiple skill sets and wear many hats. 
We need individuals who are passionate about maternal health care, excited about working in the community, and can work independently with minimal supervision.

This position will be a consultancy or short term contract, with the possibility of converting to longer-term employment. 
Depending on the position, this may be a full or a part-time role.
