Water For People, an international NGO, is looking for a professional to be the Managing Director of a for profit subsidiary company that will be engaged in the manufacture and sale of environmentally-friendly briquettes used for cooking fuel.
The Managing Director will be responsible for building the company from startup to scale. Key aspects of business will be input sourcing, production, sales and marketing. The Managing Director will be tasked to follow lean startup principles and processes to build a venture that sector partners can invest in and that will ultimately improve lives across the region.
Managing Director will need to recruit talented staff and build an effective team. There will also be a separate Board of Directors and the Managing Director will help recruit members. The business will be operated to maximize profit, and Water For People has private sector level expectations for execution.
However, all profits will be used for social benefit: providing and/or subsidizing sanitation in Kampala and/or other small towns in Uganda. The innovative product is a briquette that has major advantages over charcoal. The adoption of this briquette will reduce the demand for charcoal and thus lead to a reduction in deforestation.
Test marketing has demonstrated robust demand and we anticipate a high gross margin. All funding for both working capital and fixed assets is secured. At scale (2 to 4 years) we anticipate production annual revenues in excess of 5B UGX. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON THIS JOB OPENING
