    M-KOPA Solar Compensation & Benefits Manager Job in Nairobi Kenya

    M-KOPA is seeking:

    Position Title: Compensation & Benefits Manager

    Location: Nairobi HQ

    Position Start: ASAP

    Reporting to: Chief Human Resource Officer

    About M-KOPA Solar: M-KOPA Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of "pay-as-you-go" energy for off-grid customers.

    Since its commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 350,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day.

    The success of M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use installment plan.

    Customers acquire solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage "credits" for Kshs 50, or less than the price of traditional kerosene lighting.

    After one year of payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more power.

    All revenues are collected in real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in Kenya) and embedded GSM sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor real time performance and regulate usage based upon payments.

    This connected design means that M-KOPA is processing vast amounts of data (i.e. over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via the company's proprietary cloud platform, M-KOPAnet.

    As of January 2016 M-KOPA employs over 700 full time staff across East Africa and sells through a network of over 1,000 direct sales agents. It has also commenced licensing its technology to partners in other markets.

    M-KOPA has been recognised for its pioneering business mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize, being selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014 Bloomberg New Energy Finance awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award.

    M-KOPA has also successfully tested a range of new products that leverage its relationship with customers, and M-KOPA’s unique competencies in mobile telecommunications and ICT.

    To ensure that the research and development of new products add value to (and do not distract from) its core business, M-KOPA is establishing the M-KOPA Labs.

    The Labs will be a dedicated business unit within M-KOPA that will define and test extensions of the M-KOPA asset-based credit model for off-grid-power to new products and services.

    Role Profile

    Overall Purpose: The key responsibility of the Compensation and Benefits Manager will be to spearhead the development of a total reward strategy for M-KOPA in partnership with the HR department management and leadership of the organization, playing a specialist role in regards to compensations and benefits within the organization.

    This pertains to planning, design, regulatory compliance, communication, policy development and administration of company-wide employee compensation and benefits programs consistent with the long term employee total reward objectives across the region (Kenya, Uganda & Tanzania).

    Key Accountabilities

  • Design, implement, and manage salary classification and compensation programs.
  • Administering the organization’s benefits programs (e.g. retirement plans, leave policies, wellness programs, insurance policies, etc.)
  • Conduct analysis of compensation and benefits within company.
  • Ensuring compensation and benefits plans are cost-effective and competitive
  • Prepare occupational classifications, job descriptions, and salary scale.
  • Oversee competitive analysis, merit increases and salary structure as well as comparing benefits and compensation plans, job classifications, and salaries through data and cost analysis.
  • Monitoring and researching compensation and benefits trends as well as analysing surveys to ensure appropriate compensation across all departments.

    Health Research Fellow Job in Kenya

    Background

    The prevalence of acute malnutrition in Kenya is 6% nationally, with rates ranging between 15-20% in the Arid and Semi-Arid Areas (ASAL), including Wajir County. Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (IMAM) is a proven approach in the treatment of acute malnutrition, however its effectiveness in Kenya is limited by Health Workers failing to adhere to standard CMAM treatment protocol, due in part to poor monitoring and support, relying on paper based systems.

    Save the Children with funding from World Vision and Transform Nutrition (DIFD/IFPRI) are implementing an MHealth project in Wajir, whereby health workers are given tablets to help them assess, treat and refer children with acute malnutrition. A rigorous evaluation is attached to the project to evaluate effectiveness of using the tablets with IMAM adapted software.

    The evaluation targets 45 health facilities in three contiguous sub-counties of Wajir: Wajir south (18 centres), Wajir east (11 centres) and Tarbaj (16 centres). Twenty of these centres have been randomly selected, after stratifying by sub-county to receive the tablets (intervention group) and the remaining facilities act as a control group.

    The devices have IMAM adapted software that allows the health worker to record IMAM data on site and follow IMAM protocols, providing more timely and accurate data for decision making and higher quality of care. The following data has or will be collected and will need to be cleaned and analysed to produce a report of findings by February 2017:

     Data gathered through the tablets and paper registers for a period of 12 months will be compared across the two groups to evaluate the effectiveness of the tablets on treatment outcomes.

     Historical data from paper registers since October 2014 is currently being entered and will be used to check that the two groups of health facilities are similar before the introduction of the tablets and assess issues with current paper registers

     Health facility observations will be conducted 2-3 times in all health facilities by the project research assistants to assess the quality of care

     Qualitative assessment will be also be done to assess acceptability and uptake of the tablets and identify challenges and solutions found.

    A research fellow is needed from August 2016 for a period of 6 months (part time at 50%) to support data management and analysis of the data gathered through tablets and registers during a period of 12 months.

    The research fellow will work on a part time basis supporting the project based in Nairobi with frequent travel to Wajir.

    2. ILRI Graduate Fellowship: Cross-scale Political Economy of Low GHG Emission Dairy Development

    ILRI and CIFOR seek two PhD students for interdisciplinary social and political science research under an IFAD-funded project entitled “Greening livestock: incentive-based climate-smart agriculture interventions for reducing the climate impact of livestock in East Africa”.

    The Project focuses on identifying the conditions that enable and constrain East African dairy producers in adopting climate smart agriculture practices, involving analysis that ranges from the political economy dynamics shaping the effectiveness of dairy development interventions to household labor dynamics affecting adoption of improved production practices by dairy smallholders.

    One PhD position will focus on Kenya and the other will focus on Tanzania. Both PhD students are expected to work within a coherent conceptual and methodological framework, to be developed in conjunction with ILRI and CIFOR supervisors.

    Background

    Dietary changes and growing populations in Sub-Saharan Africa are leading to major increases in demand for livestock products. In East Africa, livestock is a major source of rural income and food security.

    Livestock production provides between 40 and 55% of household incomes and 26% of protein intake in diets. Across East Africa, livestock production is predominantly managed by smallholder farmers with dairy representing the most important end-market.

    In mixed crop-livestock systems, half of the agricultural workforce is employed in livestock production; in extensive dryland livestock systems this figure exceeds 90%. Thus, growth in demand for livestock products is an important opportunity to improve incomes for smallholder livestock producers.

    In low income countries, such as those in East Africa, however livestock is a major source of GHG emissions. It is estimated that livestock-related GHG emissions represent over 80% of total agriculture emissions and 12% of total anthropogenic emissions. The increasing growth in demand for livestock products is an urgent concern as this in turn could result in increased GHG emissions.

    Implementing mechanisms to remunerate smallholders to increase productivity while reducing GHG emissions intensities requires national policy support and engagement of the private sector. Currently, the development of Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS) is increasingly prioritized by East African governments and donors, and the livestock sector is a promising target given their high emissions contributions and vital role in household incomes and food security.

    However, the lack of reliable estimates on GHG emissions associated to different practices and productivity levels for different systems is a barrier to the implementation of LEDS.

    The Project aims to generate evidence that can be used by both public or private sector organizations and platforms to identify appropriate incentive mechanisms and in the implementation, monitoring, reporting and verification for LEDS that include the livestock sector.

    Because of the potential to sequester carbon and the need to address land degradation in the region, this effort will be supported by land rehabilitation initiatives and investments in improved forest management practices. Kenya is a leader amongst East African countries in this area, with Tanzania well positioned to develop a LEDS that will include the livestock sector in the near future.

    Scope of the PhD assignment

    The PhD student will directly contribute to Component 2 of the Project entitled “Social and institutional analyses to identify appropriate interventions to promote the uptake of climate smart agriculture practice in the Kenyan and Tanzanian Dairy sector”.

    Component 2 aims to identify viable interventions to enhance the productivity and sustainability of different types of dairy production systems. The PhD student will contribute to this by undertaking the following research activities:

  • Analysis of dairy value chain dynamics through key informant interviews and semi-structured surveys, including factors that shape smallholder modes of integration into input and off-take markets and identifying market mechanisms that best contribute to smallholder upgrading
  • Analysis of smallholder production practices by conducting producer surveys and focus group discussions, with emphasis on identifying social, technical, and economic barriers to adoption of best climate smart agriculture practices faced by different types of smallholders. This should include the development of a producer typology.
  • Identification of socially and economically viable options that take into account the identified barriers to adoption, disaggregated by producer type. This includes political economic assessment of the institutional context, relevant political processes across scales, implementation challenges experienced by different types of public and private dairy development programs, and identification of viable alternative implementation scenarios.
  • Analysis of potential financing mechanisms to support the implementation of identified intervention options and dairy LEDS more generally. This should include analysis of producer willingness to pay for different types of climate smart agriculture technologies, to be identified by research colleagues on the project.

    Qualifications and skills

    The ideal candidate will have:

  • Obtained a Master’s degree in geography, anthropology, sociology, political economy, development studies or other relevant social science discipline. People with qualifications only in biophysical sciences should not apply.
  • Enrolled in an accredited PhD program and be near completion of coursework.
  • Experience in East Africa and/or with smallholder dairy production systems in developing countries.
  • Experience with social science research methods, both qualitative and quantitative, including value chain analysis and political economic assessments.
  • Strong conceptual skills for comparative cross-scale political economy research.
  • Familiarity with statistical software such as SPSS or STATA.
  • Ability to supervise and train research assistants and provide necessary quality control.
  • Excellent written and spoken English. Ability to converse in Kiswahili is also a major asset.
  • Ability to effectively communicate in a multicultural context, present findings to diverse audiences, and support facilitation of multi-stakeholder workshops.
  • Ability to collaborate with biophysical scientists in an interdisciplinary team project.

    The PhD fellowship offers a three year stipend and operating budget, but will not cover coursework, university fees, etc. The ideal candidate will be able to develop a full proposal and begin fieldwork by January 2017.

    Location: One fellow will be located in Kenya and another in Tanzania.

    How to apply:

    Interested applicants should submit the following documents;

  • Curriculum Vitae including three references with contact information.
  • A cover letter describing the candidate’s interests in and qualifications for carrying out the research, referring to the candidate’s Curriculum Vitae as fitting, and highlighting any particularly relevant qualifications to the Director, People and Organizational Development. The fellowship title and reference number:

    CAPDEV/08/2016 should be clearly indicated in the subject line of the cover letter.

    3. Greening Livestock MSc Fellowship

    The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit an MSc student for interdisciplinary natural and social science research under an IFAD-funded project entitled “Greening livestock: incentive-based climate-smart agriculture interventions for reducing the climate impact of livestock in East Africa”.

    The Project focuses on identifying the conditions that enable and constrain East African dairy producers in adopting climate smart agriculture practices.

    The current position will categorize existing manure management practices in Bomet county using farmer surveys, and work towards developing county-wide estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from livestock manure as well as identify potential mitigation practices that also improve dairy production in smallholder systems.

    The student is expected to work within a coherent conceptual and methodological framework, to be developed in conjunction with ILRI supervisors.

    Background

    Dietary changes and growing populations in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are leading to major increases in demand for livestock products. In East Africa, livestock is a major source of rural income and food security.

    Livestock production provides between 40 and 55% of household incomes and 26% of protein intake in diets. Across East Africa, livestock production is predominantly managed by smallholder farmers with dairy representing the most important end-market.

    Because of the potential to sequester carbon and the need to address land degradation in the region, this effort will be supported by land rehabilitation initiatives and investments in improved forest management practices. Kenya is a leader amongst East African countries in this area.

    Scope of the MSc assignment

    The MSc student will directly contribute to Component 1 of the Project entitled “Baseline and identification of promising Climate Smart Agriculture interventions”.

    Component 1 aims to identify viable interventions to mitigate GHG emissions while also enhancing the productivity and sustainability of dairy production systems. The MSc student will contribute to this by undertaking the following research activities:

  • Categorize the manure management systems currently used in Bomet County and using existing emission factors (EF) of the different systems, estimate the baseline emissions from manure for the county.
  • Analysis of smallholder manure management practices by conducting surveys and focus group discussions, with emphasis on identifying social, technical, and economic barriers to adoption of best climate smart practices faced by different types of smallholders.
  • Identification of socially and economically viable options that take into account the identified barriers to adoption and estimation of the mitigation value of these options.

    Qualifications and skills

    The ideal candidate will have:

  • Obtained a Bachelor’s degree in geography, agriculture, development studies or other relevant biophysical science discipline.

    The position:

    General background

    Accelerated Value Chain Development – Livestock Component (AVCD-LC) is a project led by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in five counties in northern Kenya (Garissa, Isiolo, Marsabit, Turkana and Wajir) and supported by USAID under the Feed the Future initiative.

    In AVCD-LC, improved rangeland management is understood as key pillar of improving livestock value chains in these counties. Across northern Kenya various approaches to participatory and community rangeland management are being implemented.

    The success of these efforts will require a supportive enabling environment, particularly in terms of county level frameworks and policies. The Community Land Bill, once finalized and enacted, will certainly play a pivotal role in securing the tenure and management rights of communities engaged in rangeland management.

    However, the timeline for adoption of a law on Community Land and subsequent development of county systems for implementing such a law remains uncertain, and there is an urgent need for improvement of the enabling institutional and policy environment in the interim.

    Security of tenure for pastoralist communities is a pivotal issue, and it is hoped that a law on Community Land will help to establish such security. However, it may be possible to strengthen rights of communities to manage rangelands while waiting for progress on tenure security.

    A national dialogue on rangeland governance policy is expected to be held in September 2016. A review of national policies and legislation will provide an important input to the discussions.

    Objective of the assignment

    To review existing and draft national policies and legislation that can be used to structure institutional frameworks for community rangeland management, pending the finalization and enactment of the Community Land Bill, and propose options for County Governments for developing such frameworks.

    Main questions to be addressed:

  • How (through what kind of institutional/policy framework) can county governments clarify and strengthen the rights of communities and community organizations to manage collective rangelands in the near-term pending finalization and enactment of a national law on Community Land while also maximizing the likelihood for any such framework that is developed to be consistent with such a law once it is enacted?
  • Which national policy(ies) and/or legislation would be most appropriate for adaptation by county governments for them to establish such frameworks?
  • What are the gaps in national policies and legislation that must be addressed at national level in order to enable county governments to develop appropriate frameworks?

    Final Products

    Primary outputs:

  • A presentation to be made at a national policy dialogue workshop.
  • A report reviewing national policies and legislation that can be used to structure institutional frameworks for community rangeland management and proposing options for county governments for developing such frameworks.

    Essential Skills and Qualifications will include:

  • Post graduate degree in law, public policy, natural resource/environmental management, or land administration.
  • A least ten years’ experience working on in natural resource and land policy issues in Kenya
  • Demonstrated extensive experience working on natural resource and land policy issues in Kenya.
  • Experience working on pastoralist/rangeland governance issues
  • Extensive experience in policy assessment and development

    Post location: Nairobi, Kenya

    Duration: From approximately 1 September 2016 with a maximum number of 20 working days concluded no later than 15 October 2016.

    Applications:

    How to apply: Applicants should send a cover letter and CV explaining their interest in the position, what they can bring to the job and the names and addresses (including telephone and email) of three referees who are knowledgeable about the candidate’s professional qualifications and work experience, and a sample of similar work done in the past (reports assessing policy and policy gaps, etc.) to the Director, People and Organizational Development through our Recruitment Portal on or before 29 August 2016.

    About Plan International

    Plan is an international child-centered community development organization without political, religious or governmental affiliations. Plan’s vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies which respect people’s rights and dignity.

    ECCD is a core programming area in Plan International titled “The Right to a healthy Start in Life. The Regional of East and Southern Africa (RESA) RO based in Nairobi, Kenya supports 12 countries in the region. All these countries work directly and or through partners to implement a broad range of ECCD programs in a number of contexts (urban; post conflict and rural) targeting the poorest and most excluded children, including girls, children with disabilities, children affected by AIDS and children affected by conflict and disasters among others.

    Community Led Actions (CLAC) in RESA

    RESA in collaboration with several countries in the region is propelling an approach titled Community-Led Action for Children (CLAC) to deliver its ECCD programs. The CLAC approach aims to address causes of family and child vulnerability and focuses on children’s overall well-being status in key areas of health; nutrition; cognitive and psycho-social development; and protection.

    School readiness and transitions to primary education are central aims as proxy measures for the child and his or her family being healthy, stable, with basic needs met, ready to learn and thrive. Local civil society organizations, community associations, and community volunteers are integral actors in the model, which was designed to be community-led and self-sustaining.

    The approach is hinged on four interwoven objectives that include: 1) Parenting Education on holistic child development and well-being;

    2) Early Learning Programs for one or two years before formal schooling;

    UNHCR ICT Regional Officers (Instant Network Schools Programme) Jobs in Nairobi, Kenya

    Organization: UNHCR

    Job Title: ICT Regional Officers - Instant Network Schools Programme

    Duty Station: Nairobi, Kenya

    About UNHCR Innovation: UNHCR Innovation is a multi-year, inter-divisional initiative looking for more efficient, effective and creative solutions to challenges that refugees face across UNHCR operations worldwide.

    The ultimate goal of our action is improved refugee protection, empowerment, and dignity.

    We do this by rethinking the way UNHCR works, the way it involves refugees in the design of the programs, and the way it looks at good practices in the humanitarian and private sector

    Education is a basic human right, but for the more than 50 million people around the world displaced by violent conflict, access to quality education often remains elusive.

    As families flee their homes in hopes of safety, children and adults of all ages leave behind empty classrooms, and as displaced individuals settle into new surroundings, many find themselves in need of additional skills - from new trades to new languages - in order to make a living in an unfamiliar environment.

    One of the key outputs of UNHCR’s Global Education Strategy 2012-2016 is to seek innovative means of enhancing and expanding educational opportunities for refugees.

    To help achieve this goal, the Education Unit, within the Division of International Protection, partnered with UNHCR Innovation in late 2012 to form the Learn Lab.

    This lab has created an enabling environment for testing new approaches to ensure quality education for displaced communities.

    1. General Background of Project or Assignment:

    1.b Concept: In each operation, the programme aims to establish Instant Network Classrooms in formal schools which are already operating in the refugee camps.

    Schools are selected by UNHCR along with the community and implementing partners, and cover primary, secondary and vocational training.

    From 2015, Community Learning Hubs were also established to serve the wider community; and in Kenya World Reader Mobile is being leveraged to give community access to eBooks on their own phones.

    Both the Classrooms and the Hubs are equipped with internet connectivity, power, and equipment for use by teachers or coaches and students.

    An Instant Classroom Kit, comprising a laptop, projector, speakers and a local server for teachers to use, alongside tablets to encourage student interactivity, has been developed by the Vodafone Foundation and is being deployed.

    The Hubs will use the Kit, and will also be given eReaders which can be used by the community as part of a digital library.
