CALLING ADVENTUROUS LEADERS! Lalmba seeks a project director for management of a development project in the remote southwest highland rain forest of Ethiopia. This role requires experience in the developing world, and good intercultural leadership and management skills.
The setting is rural, in an area without modern amenities. This is a rare opportunity to develop a new project in an area of great need and breathtaking beauty. The role requires a 1-2 year commitment. Lalmba runs a clinic, children’s program and public health initiatives at this site.
Lalmba pays no salary but covers all expenses related to travel to/from Ethiopia, and working and living in Ethiopia (visas, immunizations, airfare, room and board, medical & life insurance). We will also pay for roundtrip tickets for a visit back home after one year.
KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: The Project Director(s) provides the overall leadership of the organization in Ethiopia and is responsible for managing the operation of the clinic, children’s and public health programs and housing. The Project Director is the primary liaison with government officials and US office, and is responsible for the management of Ethiopian staff, procurement of medical and expat supplies, maintenance of the grounds and equipment, management of the finances and other miscellaneous duties.
