Full-Time Uganda Program Manager (Kampala, Uganda)
The Uganda Program Manager is a passionate and organized leader in our growing global team. The past six years have been full of exciting and rapid growth for GHC, and we are in need of a Uganda Program Manager to provide dedicated support to our fellows, alumni and partner organizations in-country. This position reports to the Uganda Country Manager and requires exceptional passion for our work. You will be thinking through the most effective way to leverage the talent of our fellows and alumni as an influential community of diverse leaders. Your tireless commitment to their success and the knack for optimistic problem-solving will be an absolute must.
The ideal candidate thrives in a dynamic, global, collaborative and fast-paced start-up environment where we are passionate about what we do, cares deeply for our greater mission, and works really hard to achieve results. We don’t always have the answers or the right systems or endless resources. Yet as a community of leaders, including the GHC staff, we’re undeterred. We are adaptable. We are steadfast in our commitments. We are resilient. In fact, we thrive in challenging situations, where our task is to do what hasn’t been done and where we must dismantle or rebuild systems that propagate inefficiency and inequity. We have the vision to think big, but we have the humility and the can-do attitude to get our hands dirty in order to get it done. You should too. We work daily across country borders and time zones, so being an excellent, thoughtful, and strategic communicator is essential. You will bring a solutions-oriented and client service mindset, demonstrating excellent attention to detail and a value for collaboration across a range of teams, cultures, and working styles.
Global Health Corps:
Global Health Corps (GHC) is building a new generation of global health leadership. We believe that solving the world’s most pressing global health challenges requires better and more connected leaders who are able to work across traditional boundaries like geography, sector, and issue area to engineer stronger global health systems. We need more than clinicians and providers; we need management consultants, engineers, artists, and architects. We need new leadership voices and new perspectives, especially those representing the populations most often left out and unheard.
GHC competitively recruits and selects emerging leaders from around the world who represent a wide range of skillsets and areas of expertise, all of which are critical to rebuilding and strengthening health systems. GHC is developing a cadre of health equity leaders through a unique leadership development program that utilizes experiential and formal learning methods.
Through a one-year fellowship program, fellows address a wide-range of health issues with high-impact grassroots organizations, NGOs, and ministries of health in Rwanda, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and the United States. Fellowship positions are demand-driven, ensuring that our fellows fill real-time health systems gaps and serve to amplify the great work already in progress. Placement organizations benefit from the skills and energy of fellows, as well as the support of GHC. We are building a network of young changemakers who share the common belief that health is a human right.
