·      Find people. When it comes to specific roles such as Sr. Engineers or experienced Project Managers, we often find them through our own network or carefully reaching out ourselves. You will offer creative solutions in finding people through your own network, through LinkedIn or through new avenues for our pipeline.

·      Influence people. Candidates and colleagues often have questions. You will act as an advocate for both sides. You will play a role in ensuring hiring managers understand the candidates’ capabilities. You will also act as an advocate for PowerGen to help candidates learn what makes PowerGen a great place to work!

·      Interview people. One candidate could be at their best in one organization and find it difficult to perform in the same role at a different organization. You will need to ask the right questions to learn what motivates our candidates and how they will fit into our culture.

·      Advise people. Our recruitment process is far from perfect. You will use your experience and creativity to advise the team on improvements and encourage the use of new tools to boost efficiency and effectiveness. You are an advisor to the hiring manager; you challenge them on their requirements and suggest alternative possibilities.

·      Coach people. The interview process can seem long and include waiting time. Hiring managers want their opening filled today. Candidates are eager to hear how they have done. You will coach them both through the process. You will communicate to candidates and hiring managers every step of the way: after an assignment, a personal interview, whether the outcome was positive, negative or needs some more time.

·      Believe in yourself. PowerGen is the leading microgrid developer in Africa, and our projects and teams move quickly. You will start as a recruiter for several roles but you should see yourself shaping the recruitment strategy of a multinational company. All of our openings are currently in Tanzania and Kenya, but expect to be involved in finding people across the continent.

Skills and qualifications

·      3+ years of experience in finding and hiring people, preferably in an engineering and international environment

·      Results-focused. You are able to get out a JD in time, focus efforts on the goals and follow up with hiring managers and candidates as promised.

·      Listening. You work well with all layers of an organization. You hear and interpret messages from candidates and hiring managers alike and ask additional questions when clarification is needed.

·      Quality focus. Just getting the job done is not enough for you. You set high standards for yourself, and share them with the team. If priorities change, you communicate them with the team in a timely manner.

·      Teamwork. You connect easily with the team and gain their trust and respect. You help others who could use your support and communicate early and thoughtfully when you do.

·      Planning and organizing. You lead searches through planned steps and commit to agreed timelines. You can combine several searches in various stages at the same time.

·      Adaptability. Some openings have been open with us for a while and some openings need someone starting immediately. You can combine these priorities with ease.

·      Problem solving. You identify and analyze problems that cross your path. You are able to offer solutions or share the steps you have taken to solve the problem.

·      Support and live our Values: Integrity, Ingenuity, Passion, Team, Humility and Positivity

Benefits and Compensation

·      Competitive annual compensation

·      Annual holiday bonus

·      Medical insurance

·      Individualized career development

·      Performance feedback and open-door company culture
