About the role
WISER is hiring an organized, passionate, and insightful Country Manager who can drive the implementation of programs for our growing NGO, build systems and culture, create and flawlessly execute plans, grow WISER through passionate networking and partnership creation, and serve as a reliable point person. Our Country Manager will serve as the leader of all non-school programs, will manage the principal of the WISER Girls Secondary School, and act as the face of many WISER NGO partnerships in-country.
We are creating this role to manage and amplify our programs, partnerships, and resources in-country. Our candidate will also be responsible for building WISER’s network across Kenya and beyond as we seek to make WISER more visible and more accessible to funding and programmatic partners. You will be the only staff in Kenya exclusively focused on strategic program design, implementation, and partnership development and will leverage those around you to do so: including the school team, the US based-ED, and the board. Over the coming years, you will have the opportunity to build a small, similarly-focused team, grow board engagement, and may have the opportunity to expand your responsibilities as the organization grows and evolves.
Success in this position will mean WISER’s implementation of a set of high-impact, well-monitored programs, the strong management of a dedicated network of partners who find value in working with WISER, and the further development of WISER as a worthwhile and reliable partner and investment. Our ideal candidate multitasks with ease and connects with new people in various contexts with enthusiasm and an opportunistic mindset. We are looking for a strong communicator who is consistently accessible, quick, open, and clear.
