Several Manager of District Jobs - EarthEnable Uganda

Job Title:         Manager of Districts (Several Jobs)
Organization: EarthEnable Uganda
Duty Station: Positions available in districts throughout Eastern Uganda, Uganda
Reports to: Uganda Managing Director

About US:
At EarthEnable, we believe that our clients deserve our very best, that morning high-fives are the best way to start the day, and that the best ideas could come from any part of the company. We celebrate each other's wins, learn from our setbacks, and are deeply proud of the impact we make every day. We believe that a clean, dust-free floor means more than living in a healthy home. It means pride and dignity in the place our customers most treasure: their homes. Being a part of our team means more than building floors: it means building an organization and building a better future for rural families.

What We Do
EarthEnable is transforming the way people live, by making homes healthier for families across EastAfrica. 65% of Ugandans live in homes with dirt floors which are dusty, unsanitary, and fertile breeding grounds for parasites and germs. While replacing a dirt floor with concrete has significant health benefits (e.g. reducing diarrhea by 50% and parasitic infections by 80%), concrete is unaffordable for many who need it.

EarthEnable addresses this pressing and ubiquitous problem by selling high-quality, earthen floorsthat are 70% cheaper than concrete with 90% less embedded energy. Earthen floors are already prevalent in modern homes in the United States and are composed of natural materials (gravel, clay, sand, and laterite). EarthEnable trains and hires local masons to install the floors which are sealed using a proprietary drying oil that makes them waterproof, strong, and polished.

Job Summary:  We are looking for an experienced and organized District Manager who will lead day-to-day operations in and strategize for scaling within a district. The job will involve overseeing office and field operations (in construction and sales), managing the district budget, and providing regular input to the district team as well as senior management to hone and improve EarthEnable's service delivery within the district. The primary role of the District Manager is to coordinate the work of the district team, and to build their capacity for even higher achievement. This District Manager will receive supervision and guidance from the Uganda Managing Director. This is a field-oriented leadership position, with a consistent blend of office and fieldwork. The successful candidate will be willing to get his or her hands dirty and work closely with masons and sales reps, while having an eye for the bigger picture and growth projections of the company. We are looking for someone who is adept at detailed planning, a quick learner, and an entrepreneurial self- starter.
