Submitted by OHRConsultants on July 6, 2012 - 4:45pm.
The Green Forest Social Investment (GFSI) & Stichting Het Groene Woudt is being supported by Oxford HR in the global search for a Managing Director.
The GFSI, founded in 2008, is an integrated social development enterprise centred on a number of forestry, forestry-related and agricultural activities. The initiative’s long-term goal is poverty reduction by means of economic development and income generation through social business and environmental restoration. The GFSI aims to stimulate economic empowerment by creating sustainable income generating opportunities for smallholder farmers and community members, as well as investing in social wellbeing and environmental conservation. The Initiative is (financially) supported by Stichting Het Groene Woudt (SHGW).
We are seeking a Managing Director to assist with the realignment process over the coming 2-3 years, which aims to refocus our activity portfolio to achieve our objectives. The managing director will be responsible for the overall management of GFSI and will lead the management team, consisting of local staff.
The ideal candidate will be mature with strong analytical skills (university degree level), a strategic oversight and a social and entrepreneurial mindset. S/he will have strong communications skills and the ability to lead a team in its growth and performance. He/she will have a strong desire to contribute to realizing social impact in a community and will have relevant international business experience. Working experience in similar environment/culture, experience in development work and/or experience in leading complex change processes are considered a significant plus.
As the position is located 4 hours (drive) away from Kisumu main city, the candidate must be willing to live in a remote rural setting with basic facilities throughout the week, but a flat will be provided in Kisumu for weekend get-away. GFSI will also pay international school fees for 2/3 children.
