Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?
Living Goods works to reinvent how we improve the lives of the under-served. We think big, but operate lean and nimble. We believe community health is critical to deliver universal health coverage and that community health workers are essential because they bring health services to people’s doorsteps.
We also help governments transform community health through mobile phones. Using the disruptive power of mobile technology, we’ve equipped and deployed 7,500 community health workers across Africa. These community health workers treat common illnesses like pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria focusing on children and mothers. They also provide primary healthcare to 6 million people at a fraction of the cost of doctors and nurses. And they’ve reduced child mortality by 27 percent.
The secret to our success is a winning team. One that enables people to bring their ideas and creativity to work every day. If you work well in a dynamic collaborative culture, set high standards, meet challenges with determination and a have a sense of humor, come work for Living Goods!
Living Goods is growing! We’ve grown 30 percent every year for the past 5 years. We now have a staff of 400 and 8,200 community health workers spread across four countries. Our budget is $20 million this year and we will double that in 2019, thanks to a recent $35 million challenge grant from the TEDx Audacious Ideas project.
We’re growing because we have a winning model and mission: to ensure that every family has high quality health care in their community. No matter how dense the neighbourhood or how remote the village.
Our growth is anchored in three S’s: scaling, strengthening and spreading. To scale we aim to increase the number of people served within our two operational countries, Kenya and Uganda, and to launch operations in three new countries by 2021. To strengthen, we will broaden and deepen our impact with new programs and products and make big leaps in our operating effectiveness. Finally, we will spread our impact in current and new countries by influencing community health policy.
Organizational growth can be dizzying for the faint-hearted but exciting for thrill seekers. To manage both growth and our thrill seekers, we know we need the steady hand of a Chief Operating Officer (COO).
A competitive salary and benefits package commensurate with experience including health insurance and bonus opportunity. The opportunity to be your best while making lives better for those in need.
