Regional Director Job in Kenya

Regional Director for Africa

WSPA International

Location:  Nairobi   
Closing Date: 25th March 2013 (at midnight GMT)

WSPA is the world’s leading and largest international organisation dedicated to animal welfare.  For more than thirty years WSPA has been dedicated to enhancing welfare and ending animal suffering across the world. 

Our successes to date and ambitious plans for the future are supported by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, governments, and international institutions. 

With consultative status at the United Nations, WSPA brings together people and organisations throughout the world to challenge and address global animal welfare issues. 

We have a unique perspective, connecting animal welfare with international development and are focused on delivering truly sustainable solutions.

WSPA and its many partners share a common view that a sustainable world is one where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended. 

This new role provides an exceptional start-up opportunity for an ambitious and entrepreneurial candidate.  

The Regional Director will establish and develop a new Africa Programme, in line with WSPA’s new Strategy, and with the support and infrastructure of an established global organisation with offices in 16 countries, a staff of 350 and an income of US$75m+.  
  • The successful candidate will be a visionary strategic thinker with extensive experience of working on a senior international team, and the ability to actively contribute to WSPA’s Global Leadership Team.  
  • A track record of effective leadership and operational management in an NGO context is essential. 
  • You will come from a background in international development or environment:  knowledge of animal welfare would be an advantage, but is not essential.  
  • You will be an excellent communicator, campaigner and networker, able to represent WSPA at regional and international levels, and fluent in spoken and written English.   
  • You will have an in-depth knowledge of living and working in Africa, and be fluent in Kiswahili or another national language. 
The role enjoys a competitive remuneration package that will be negotiated with the successful candidate.
