Kenya: KEN-03: Long term TA to support coordination of the Kenya SUN Private Sector Network (SNPSN)

Organization: Nutrition International
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 19 Apr 2018

Terms of Reference (ToR)

Background

Technical Assistance for Nutrition (TAN) is a project supported by UK aid from the UK government, which seeks to improve the capacity of SUN countries to design, deliver, and track the progress of nutrition programs and to generate, learn from and adopt knowledge of what works. Nutrition International is contributing to TAN by coordinating the provision of technical assistance to help national SUN focal points in select countries to overcome gaps in capacity for the design and delivery of multi-sectoral national nutrition plans, tapping into its global hub to source and deploy the expertise needed.

Significant strides have been made in reducing malnutrition prevalence over the last five years. According to the 2008 and 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Surveys (KDHS) stunting levels decreased from 35% to 26%; wasting rates declined from 7% to 4%, and the proportion of underweight children dropped from 16% to 11%, between these surveys. Kenya is one of three countries currently making progress at the rate required to meet five out of the six World Health Assembly (WHA) targets for 2025, including a reduction of anaemia prevalence for women.

The Government of Kenya has demonstrated commitment to address the nutrition situation by putting in place policies, strategies and legislation aimed at reducing malnutrition. These include, 2012-2017 National Nutrition Action Plan (NNAP), Kenya National Food and Nutrition Security Policy 2012, East Africa Fortification Standards, Breastmilk substitute Act 2012 among others. While these have contributed to positive changes, there is recognition that in order to build on this progress and eradicate malnutrition, there is need for enhanced collaboration with other nutrition actors (e.g. education, WASH, social protection and agriculture). The private sector also needs to be brought on board if further and sustainable achievements are to be realized. Business has a significant role to play in Kenya achieving its ‘Vision 2030’ which clearly articulates that good health and nutrition play an essential role in boosting economic growth, poverty reduction and in the realization of its overarching goals. The 2012-2017 NNAP recognizes the value of partnerships in combating malnutrition under its eleventh objective “to strengthen coordination and partnerships among the key nutrition actors including the private sector.”

Kenya joined the SUN Movement in 2012, this signaling its commitment to undertaking coordinated actions to improve nutrition status in the country. Key achievements since the launch of SUN in Kenya include, adoption 2012-2017 NNAP and enhanced government leadership of the nutrition sector, which has resulted in improved coordination of actors and a more harmonized approach to implementation and monitoring of nutrition programmes. This is evidenced by inclusion of the nutrition indicators in the County Health Information System (CHIS), Annual Operational Plans (AOPs), and Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF). The existence of coordination mechanisms with overall leadership from Nutrition Interagency Coordination Committee (NICC) have enhanced sector wide approach which has been instrumental in overseeing and guiding the implementation of the NNAP since 2012.

At the core of the SUN Movement is the need for cross-functional engagement in the fight against malnutrition. The establishment of six networks with the SUN Movement (Government network, Civil Society, UN System, Donor Network, Research/academia and Private Sector Network) highlights the critical role of each of the different sectors play in support nutrition. The SUN Business Network (SBN) was ‘established to mobilize and intensify business efforts in support of the SUN Movement and to ensure that all people realize their right to good food and nutrition’. It aims to find solutions to end malnutrition through business, markets and people.

In 2013, a meeting with Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of major companies producing food products and the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) embraced the concept of a SUN Nutrition Private Sector Network in Kenya. In January 2015, 10 business representatives met with a view to steer engagement of the private sector in scaling up nutrition in Kenya and an interim Nutrition Private Sector Steering Committee, comprising of INSTA Foods (Chair), Unilever and Phillips (co-chairs) and the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (Secretariat), was established. Furthermore, business representatives under the umbrella of SNPSN Kenya have participated in SUN meetings. Currently the Steering Committee is the sole representation of Nutrition Private Sector Network and is responsible for identifying opportunities for business to support the National Nutrition Action Plan, for advocacy on business engagement in scaling up nutrition and for representing the Network in various meetings and sharing feedback with the broader Network membership. Members of the Steering Committee act in their capacity as committee members in addition to their day-to-day job within industry and as a result the potential impact of the Network is currently not as great as it could be.

SNPSN undertook a situation analysis of the network and business engagement opportunities on nutrition, in alignment with the national strategy, in order to better mobilize business to help realize national nutrition objectives. Given the existing level of interest of the private sector in scaling up nutrition in Kenya and the Government’s recognition of the role that the private sector has to play in improving nutrition, there is a need to further strengthen the SUN Nutrition Private Sector Network in Kenya to encourage further private sector engagement and scale up impact.

It is in this context that the SUN FP requested for TA support from the TAN project to develop SUN Private Sector/Business Network Strategy and support the initial SBN coordination efforts. The TA (National SBN Coordinator) will facilitate the private sector platform, facilitate the development of the network’s three-year strategy and undertake a membership drive to collate and track a set of business commitments.

Recruitment Associate Job in Kenya

Recruitment Associate


PowerGen Renewable Energy is a fast-growing renewable energy company based in Nairobi. Founded in 2011, the company has installed 150+ renewable energy systems, including more than 45 micro-grids and connected 5,000+ homes and businesses in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Somalia, and South Sudan to clean and reliable electricity.

We uniquely combine our mission – to provide access to energy across all of Africa – with technical, on-the-ground expertise and an innovative business model. We build, own and operate AC micro-grids to bring power to residential and commercial customers in a for-profit manner.

With over 100 employees, an 11,000 sq. ft. workshop and headquarters in Nairobi and a Tanzanian office in Arusha, PowerGen is building a local company that is set to have an impact on the energy sector in Africa for years to come.

In 2018 PowerGen is focused on expanding on our successes in building and operating micro-grid energy utilities in the region and keeping the model on the path towards commercial viability and scale. We are building a team that is equipped to pursue this vision and could use your help to build it.

What you’ll make happen

We are looking for a creative do-er to join our People Operations team. Someone who enjoys the challenges of a young and growing company and can stand their ground. Someone who enjoys talking to our engineers in the field and can relate to to our business development team in the office. Someone who is there to support both our candidates and hiring managers.

·      Select people. Most candidates find us through our job postings. Roles in finance or installation get a lot of responses via our website. You will help us review the responses and make the first selection of the candidates.

·      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

·      Team building and company-wide events

·      Opportunity to work with a dynamic team of brilliant people passionate about electrifying East Africa!
