We are excited to announce an opening for the role of Senior Associate – Recruitment (Service Delivery) at our nonprofit organization, which is dedicated to shaping the future of mental health. This role offers an opportunity to contribute to the behavioral change necessary for overcoming the barriers of mental health stigmas, increasing mental health awareness, and driving the advancement of help-seeking behaviors.

About the role:

The Senior Associate will work closely with the Director of Service Delivery to develop and deliver recruitment strategies aimed at ensuring a sustainable supply of caregivers for Shamiri’s three tier caregiving model. This role is crucial to our organization’s expanding footprint as we look to work in more schools in more counties in Kenya.

Roles and responsibilities:

  • Lead the development and implementation of recruitment strategies for both hub and partnership-based models of implementation.
  • Spearhead recruitment processes, from drafting calls for applications, advertising, and sourcing decisions, to application processing and documentation.
  • Provide leadership and coordination to the application processing teams, ensuring fair and thorough candidate evaluations.
  • Advocate for recruitment systems that align with the organization’s upscaling strategy.
  • Collaborate with the Director of Service Delivery to ensure a sufficient lay-provider pool for timely replenishment.
  • Present recruitment-based information and reports to internal and external stakeholders.
  • Develop post-recruitment reports and decks that align with organizational standards.

  • Assist the Director of Service Delivery in creating recruitment-related budgets, operation plans, and Gantt charts.
  • Liaise with partners to aid in the recruitment of schools in collaboration with the Deliver & Recruit team.

Who we’re looking for:

We are looking for a dynamic team player with strong skills in relationship management and a passion for mental health. Ideal candidates should have experience with developing recruitment strategies, have a clear understanding of the three tiers of Shamiri’s caregiving model to be able to recognize how to recruit for each tier and would benefit from being able to leverage existing relationships with secondary schools in Kenya.

Please apply through our online application portal. Please note that you will be requested to upload your resume and cover letter in addition to completing a skills assessment.
