Nurse Job Vacancy for a Social Enterprise

Exciting Position
Nurse for a Social Enterprise
We are looking for a highly motivated and dedicated nurse to help us market Ruby Cup, and to educate girls and women in low income areas about female hygiene and the usage of Ruby Cup. 

About Ruby Cup:

Ruby Cup by Makit Ltd. is a healthy, high quality and long-lasting menstrual hygiene product made of 100% FDA approved medical grade silicone that can be re-used for up to 10 years.
  • Healthy: Non-allergenic, non-toxic, maintains the natural balance of the vagina
  • Safe: No leakages, can be worn up to 12 hours
  • Economical: One-time investment
  • Environmentally-Friendly: Re-usable for up to 10 years
Our Social Mission: 
In Kenya, menstruation is an overlooked problem. Many women and girls cannot afford sanitary products every month, and as a result they stay home from school or are hindered in work. It’s a barrier to their life opportunities. Ruby Cup is a solution to this problem. 

We sell Ruby Cup through local female vendors. We educate them in the usage of the product, reproductive health and menstrual hygiene. This way, we create employment for women, provide a sustainable solution to women and girls in poverty, and we increase peer-to-peer education in the local communities. To support this mission, we also sell Ruby Cup online to western markets for a higher price. 

Ruby Cup is the winner of The Global Social Entrepreneurship Competition 2012 (US), Venture Cup 2012 (Denmark), Finalist in Ben & Jerry's Join Our Core 2012 (EU), and 2nd  prize recipient of the Future Impact Award 2012. (Switzerland)

The Job
You will be the primary contact for questions regarding health and hygiene and be responsible for educating girls and women on the ground in Kenya. You will be in daily contact with girls and women that approach you and you will have to sell Ruby Cup to them in the Ruby Shop. 

Most importantly you have to make sure our users understand the product correctly and proper usage of it. You need to keep track of selling Ruby Cup through our shop and during events, which includes keeping track of installment payments.

Who Are You?
You have trained people in health before and are good at marketing health products. You are comfortable with being independent, and you have fun while working! You love business development in the areas of health and will do everything possible to start the conversation about menstruation and educate girls and women in basic reproductive health. You are flexible and proactive with ideas on how to overcome challenges.

You are systematic and can monitor sales, which includes managing installment payments i.e. keep track of ingoing and outgoing money. Most importantly, you should love educating people in the field of menstrual hygiene, hygiene in general and reproductive health. During events, you should be able to hold presentations to various groups that can differ in size and target audience.

The Team
Ruby Cup is founded by three Danish female entrepreneurs (Maxie, Julie and Veronica), and our little team consists of Edna (KE), and Ruchita (KE). Our office is located in Westlands in Nairobi.
