Title:              Talent Acquisition Manager
Organisation: Living
Goods (LG)
Duty Station: Kampala,
Reports to: Director,
Talent Acquisition
About US:
Living Goods (LG) seeks to
improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved customers by
revolutionizing the way community health is delivered in the developing
world.  To do this, Living Goods not only grows its own business
operations, but also dramatically magnifies its impact through large-scale
partnerships.  Living Goods supports networks of ‘Avon-like’
micro-entrepreneurs who go door-to-door teaching families how to improve their
health and wealth while selling affordable, high-impact products like basic
medicines, fortified foods, water filters, clean cook stoves, and solar lights.
Key Duties and Responsibilities:
  • The
    Talent Acquisition Manager will create recruitment strategy.  Each recruitment is like a mini casting
    call, requiring a clear understanding of the role and the reasons a
    talented candidate would want to play the part.  But before filling the part, we need you
    at to clarify the three P’s — the 
    position, people involved, and process.
  • Find
    people. Many candidates find us through our website and ads.  When it comes to the best candidates,
    however, we often find them.  That’s
    why we want a recruiter with sourcing savvy: the knowledge of where the
    best candidates work and the ability to find them.  You will identify candidates through
    industry listservs, Boolean search strings, other NGOs, LinkedIn,
    Facebook, Development Executive Group, international conferences and
    trainings, and places we haven’t even thought of.
  • Emphasize
    opportunity.  Great people come to
    Living Goods because of what we do and because of what they can do. That’s
    why we’re looking for a recruiter who can sell opportunity.  A manager who can breathe new life into
    a Living Goods branch. An analyst who can measure what matters.  A leader who can revive a dispirited
  • Assess
    people.  Knowing whether a candidate
    can do a job well is the hardest nut to crack in recruiting. At Living
    Goods, this means hiring people who can thrive in a team, do their jobs
    well, and do them with great gusto. 
    To find these people, we want a recruiter who has creative ideas on
    how to assess candidates – through things like writing assignments,
    presentations, mini projects, and auditions. 
  • Create
    tools.  Recruiting tools can serve
    as an exercise of creativity and a way to organize people’s time and
    thoughts.  You will take stock of
    recruiting tools already in use, such as sample interview guides and
    evaluation forms.  Then, you will
    identify new and better tools that can help us find, assess, and hire the
    best candidates.
  • Get
    a yes.  A golden rule in recruiting
    is to never make an offer that won’t be accepted.  That’s why great recruiters check in
    with candidates every step of the way—during the initial phone interview,
    after an interview with a hiring manager, and often in between.  Knowing candidates’ doubts and what
    qualities and responsibilities they really want can help a recruiter
    negotiate a “yes.”

    applicant tracking systems to track candidates and analyze
