Quick Summary

Sanivation is a social enterprise that partners with local governments in Africa to create clean, healthy, and productive cities through waste management.

We are looking for a new Project Manager to manage the delivery of our sanitation interventions in cities across Kenya

This is a full-time role with an estimated up to 60% travel time, based in Naivasha or Nairobi, Kenya

About Sanivation

Our mission is to improve the dignity, health, and environments of urbanizing communities in low-income countries. We have been operating in Kenya since 2014, partnering with local governments to support the research, design, implementation, and monitoring of safely managed sanitation. We utilize market-based approaches, combined with integrated stakeholder engagement, to create, implement, and operate lasting fecal sludge management (FSM) solutions.

Because of our experience of operating across all phases of the fecal sludge management (FSM) value chain from a for-profit enterprise perspective, we understand how theory meets practice to drive service delivery. Having seen too often failed or forgotten sanitation interventions, we inherently understand the need for understanding local context and market-driven business models to ensure lasting solutions. Our company model is based on short term and long-term contracts for sanitation service design and delivery focused on the following categories:

Master Planning – evaluating and designing the sanitation needs and interventions

Waste Collection – evaluating, designing, and operating the services to remove human waste out of a community

Treatment Plants – feasibility studies, design, construction, and operation of sustainable waste treatment plants

Municipal Solid Waste management – evaluating, designing, and operating the collection, processing and reuse of MSW

Role Overview:

We are seeking a Project Manager who is highly organized, detail oriented, and a great communicator. You will be responsible for coordinating all matters relating to projects with clients, partners, and stakeholders, helping to ensure that the multi-disciplinary teams in a project work together smoothly, and ensuring that timelines are met so that projects are delivered on time. This role will report directly to the Projects Coordinator and work closely with project clients, stakeholders, and project teams such as the project technical leads and account owners.

This role will be ideally based in Naivasha, Kenya at Sanivation’s Head Quarters, or in Nairobi, but will require travel up to 60% of the time to project locations across Kenya.
