Recruitment Specialist Job in Kenya

Job Title: Recruitment Specialist

About Us

Sanergy is an award-winning social venture that builds healthy, prosperous communities by making hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban informal settlements.

Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps: we build a dense network of contextually-appropriate, affordable, desirable non-sewered sanitation solutions.

We partner with residents and governments to identify locations and financing models for implementation.

We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, business analytics, training and aspirational marketing and branding.

We collect the waste regularly and safely remove it from the community for treatment.

We convert the waste into valuable end products, such as organic fertilizer and insect-based animal protein, which we sell to Kenyan farms.

We are an increasingly sophisticated, highly intricate organization with many moving parts.

Sanergy seeks accomplished, driven individuals who will make substantive contributions to the organization.

We currently seek a Recruitment Specialist to join our Talent Department.
