HNP, a Kenyan social enterprise and U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit, builds sustainable community centers that provide slums with clean drinking water, washing facilities, toilets, and showers, as well as adult education, skills training, micro-lending, and Internet access.
HNP is a collaborative effort among academic, energy experts, and local leaders to build resilience in some of the most vulnerable regions of the world and to address the lack of basic services common in slums due to shocks and stresses.
HNP opened the doors of its Kibera Town Centre in Kibera in July 2014. Kibera Town Centre is a locally-driven, high-impact, innovative solution that provides affordable access to critical human services for thousands of people in Kibera with the skills to lift themselves out of poverty.
HNP is rapidly scaling up its water, sanitation and energy services to the residents of Kibera community making it necessary to recruit a senior level experienced engineer to head up the Maintenance & Basic Services infrastructure departments.

He/she will also facilitate effective efficient and sustainable provision of water, sanitation, electrical and basic services as per HNP performance indicators and in compliance with HNP Kenya policy while meeting performance targets.
