Jacaranda Health Service Redesign Project Manager Jobs in Kenya

Jacaranda Health Service Redesign Project Manager Jobs in Kenya

About You:

  • You excel at bringing structure to complex projects: Setting up a project plan, gantt charts, activity trackers etc. is bread and butter to you. But you also go beyond the tools and identify risks and opportunities, and appropriate mitigation strategies.

  • You thrive in situations that require coordination of multiple stakeholders: You are able to map and align the incentives and concerns of various parties into a project plan, so that there is ownership and agreement across the board.

  • You are a talented communicator: You are equally comfortable with a senior leader in the health department, as you are with a junior officer in the field – and you’re able to engage them to get the job done. You are also experienced at working in a matrix environment, where moving a project forward requires engaging multiple internal teams.

    What does success look like?

  • You will be instrumental in introducing significant systems level change in delivery of health services for mothers and babies in a county, likely leading to an improvement in health outcomes. You will achieve this by getting approval for an implementation plan, coordinating the implementation of redesign efforts, coordinating reporting activities and engagement of partners and constantly communicating successes and challenges.
