Kenya: Regional Communications Manager

Organization: Living Goods
Country: Kenya, Uganda
Closing date: 15 Jun 2018

Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?

At Living Goods, we know the power of messages. Our community health workers teach mothers about infectious diseases, nutrition, hygiene and family planning, and provide critical access to treatment. Their messages are effective because they educate families and get them to act.

We seek a Regional Communications Manager to do for Living Goods what we do for families. We seek someone who can capture and effectively disseminate stories about our programs in East Africa, develop attractive and engaging collaterals and presentations, and position our work with key stakeholders through earned and social media. As our lead communicator on the ground, you will also raise awareness about our work – and community health more broadly – at key forums and other public events, and help build our reputation as a stellar organization and an innovator.

Your Charge

As our Regional Communications Manager, you will help develop compelling success stories and other written materials (e.g. fact sheets, stakeholder reports, case studies) that elucidate our work and amplify our messages. Through your writing and development of multimedia materials, you will connect people to the impact of our work and influence them to take action. You will have one direct report in Uganda and will also help build the capacity of staff across the region to effectively support telling the story of Living Goods and the power of community health.

Develop strategy. You will work the country teams in Kenya and Uganda and the Community Health Strengthening Team to create a communications plan for the countries where we currently work and might soon operate. You will also work to build bridges across the organization to support internal communications, so that global messages cascade down, and important developments ladder up. You will regularly collaborate with our country-level business development, advocacy and program teams. Under the leadership of the U.S.-based Director of Communications, you will also work to identify new and innovative ways to document and publicize Living Goods’ work

Build the brand. We need you to expand the base of people in the region that know Living Goods. Through videos, blogs, and photographs, stories, infographics, policy briefs and presentations, you will build both awareness and good vibes for Living Goods.

Generate media coverage. You will help grow coverage for both Living Goods and community health in targeted media outlets. Your efforts will include coverage in print, broadcast and digital media. In social media, you will increase our engagement on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. You will also develop key Living Goods allies among the media.

Mentor and lead. Beyond capturing and promoting key developments in Kenya, you will manage a communications coordinator in Uganda and support her/him to effectively document and amplify our longstanding programs in the country and strengthen internal communications.

Promote us. Through global health conferences and other events, you will help develop tools and materials to promote Living Goods. You will identify events in the region to showcase our work.

A website full of wonder. You will support the development of a new website for Living Goods and create content that positions us as a thought leader and key innovator in the field of community health, while reinforcing our values of inclusion, effectiveness, business savvy, and innovation.

Your background

Write well and speak simply. You can distill a complex impact evaluation into key messages and a dense donor update into a readable report. You can take the rough points of a success story and weave them together into a compelling narrative. You know how to hook people’s attention and tell a good story. You have a love of good grammar and strong attention to detail.

Communication creds. You have 7+ years of experience in communications roles – ideally a combination of nonprofit and private sector – in growing organizations. You’ve worked in multiple disciplines, like web, content, social media, and public relations. You have experience working on international development issues, and ideally some expertise communicating about health. If you have expertise with the Adobe Creative Suite (especially InDesign and Photoshop), it’s a big plus.

Creating a solid plan. You have created communications strategies that align strategic, operations and advocacy teams and provide a comprehensive path to achieving our goals.

Media savvy. You have a wide range of relationships with people in news outlets and the business press. You are comfortable writing for various social media platforms and channels, and understand best practices for content creation and targeting key influencers. You have helped launch campaigns that generate media coverage.

Culturally adaptable. You are eager to work with people from different cultures and sectors: the private sector, social entrepreneurial sector, nonprofit sector and public health community.

Team player. You play well with others enjoy seeing the impact of our work as a team.

Multitasker. You’re able to juggle multiple tasks at once while ‘keeping calm and carrying on.’ You think strategically, handle ambiguity and work well in a multicultural environment.

East Africa Harm Reduction Network Conference
 

1. Background
 

KANCO in partnership with stakeholders is in the process of organizing the 1st Eastern Africa Harm Reduction Conference. 

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Leadership and Innovation in Harm Reduction in Africa’ and is scheduled to take place from November 15th to 17th, 2017.

There will be a preceding preconference on the 14th November 2017 focusing on drug use prevention.

Eastern Africa has continued to become a significant region in drug trade (UNODC 2016). While initially it has been more of a transition route, there has been increasing demand of drugs for consumption. 

Africa is estimated to have received about 9% of the global flow of heroin as at 2011 (USAID 2013).

Increase in drug consumption in the region has come along with new challenges to public health and security. 

With the region already experiencing a HIV epidemic, increasing drug use has exacerbated infections, especially among populations of people who inject drugs, and also highlighted other blood borne infections such as viral Hepatitis (especially Hepatitis C). 

Most of the health care systems have been addressing drug related problems in ways that have left significant gaps in addressing other challenges that come with drug addiction.
 

Supply suppression and demand reduction have remained the key strategies being enforced to manage drug trade and consumption. 

Consequently, these two approaches have traditionally missed opportunities to address concerns among drug users, complicating health and social outcomes.

Harm Reduction is an approach to the drug use problem that has recently been introduced in some countries in Eastern Africa. 

Harm reduction works to reduce the health, social and economic consequences of drug use, while considering the health and human rights of people who use drugs (PWUDs).

Mauritius, Kenya and Tanzania have taken bold steps to initiate strategies and interventions fronted by the harm reduction approach as effective in mitigating drug use problems.

 In these three countries, needle and syringe programs and medically assisted treatment in the form of methadone have been introduced, primarily targeting to reduce HIV infections among people who inject drugs.

1.1 Objectives of the conference

  • To share knowledge and experience in Harm reduction
  • Inter-sectorial debate to define the value of harm reduction policies in the region and Africa
  • To share different strategies in harm reduction programing
  • Creation of action plans to follow-up on outcomes of the conference and reinforce partnerships
  • To mainstream harm reduction discussion among policy makers and institutions
1.2 Target Group

People who inject drugs (PWID), implementers, supporters, advocates, researchers in harm reduction, International participants including Drug Authorities in Eastern Africa and high-level ministry and county officials, representatives of UN agencies and international organizations, eminent researchers, institutions of higher learning and national drug authorities, Ministries of health.
 

1.3 Conference Structure
 

The main conference will be taking place over three days, from 15th to 17th November 2017.

On the evening of the 14th November, there will be a prevention pre conference that will start off by guest speakers addressing information on harm reduction and prevention messages, followed by performances from various artistes in Kenya and the region.
 

The main conference will kick off on the 15th of November, starting with key note addresses from various speakers to set the tone. 

These will be followed by plenary sessions, and thereafter breakaway sessions for abstract driven discussions. 

There will also be poster presentations on various topics. A community village as well as exhibitions will be running through the duration of the conference

Our non-profit arm innovates scalable, engaging health education solutions that, together with our pads, deliver comprehensive menstrual and reproductive health support.
