BEDRIJFSLEIDER IN ETHIOPIë , Ethiopia

(3-12 maanden / in overleg verlengbaar)

Ervaren leidinggevende met sterke persoonlijkheid (zonder geldingsdrang) om een missie-gedreven bedrijf tijdelijk te leiden.

Crown bestaat sinds 2011 om in Ethiopië banen te creëren zodat mensen voor hun geliefden kunnen zorgen. Daarnaast zorgen we dat ons werk de economie van het land als geheel ten goede komt. Zo brengen we goed nieuws bij de mensen en organisaties waarmee we werken. We zijn gefocust op het dienen van onze klanten en delen graag met anderen van wat we gekregen hebben. Door te zorgen dat we ook nog wat te verdienen kunnen we onze impact continu blijven vergroten. Dat zijn wij ongeveer!

Ons werk bestaat momenteel uit een verpakkingsbedrijf waarmee we yoghurt cups produceren voor de lokale zuivelindustrie. Toen we hier mee begonnen werden al deze producten geïmporteerd, inmiddels bedienen we naar schatting 70-80% van deze markt met onze lokale productie. Daarnaast starten we momenteel een nieuw bedrijf in koffieproducten die klaar zijn voor de eindgebruiker.

Op dit moment zoeken we een allround teamleider die ons lokale management team kan helpen in een periode met verschillende veranderingen. Het MT bestaat uit 4 mensen, het totale Crown Packaging team uit zo’n 70.

Het bedrijf draait in eigenlijk alle opzichten goed en wordt grotendeels geleid door het goed opgeleide management team. De komende periode zullen er de nodige veranderingen plaatsvinden (in gesprek toe te lichten). Helaas kan de huidige Nederlandse bedrijfsleider om persoonlijke redenen deze periode niet begeleiden.
De belangrijkste productieprocessen in ons bedrijf zijn extrusion, thermoforming en offset printing. Ervaring met deze processen of techniek zou mooi meegenomen zijn, maar voor deze interim job geen harde eis.

Voor deze rol heb je nodig:
• Karakter! Dit betekent bij ons dat je bereid bent om aan te pakken en om te doen wat er moet gebeuren. Je bent flexibel, een doorzetter en ziet altijd ruimte voor verbetering.
• Proactiviteit. In Ethiopië lopen dingen vaak anders dan in Nederland, en anders dan gedacht. Daarom moet je steeds vooruit denken, zelfverzekerd handelen en zelfstandig kiezen wat er nodig is.
• Ervaring. Op het gebied van het runnen van bedrijfsprocessen en het leiden van teams, liefst in Afrika.
• Relativeringsvermogen. Als je jezelf te serieus neemt is er natuurlijk niks aan ;-)
• Goede beheersing van de Engelse taal in spraak en schrift.

Als jij er van droomt om jouw talenten in te zetten voor een wereld waar de welvaart beter verdeeld is, dan bieden we je de kans van je leven! Midden in de prachtige Ethiopische cultuur samenwerken, ondernemen en mooie ervaringen opdoen. Geen dag is hetzelfde, het avontuur is onbetaalbaar. We kijken samen wat er nodig is te zorgen dat je (met of zonder aanhang en gezin) het goed hebt. Huisvesting en een vervoermiddel zijn beschikbaar. We zoeken dus iemand voor een geschatte periode van 3-12 maanden, maar als het alle partijen goed bevalt is verlenging natuurlijk bespreekbaar.

Ons bedrijf is gebouwd op Christelijke normen, waarden en missie. We zoeken iemand die hier achter staat of kan staan.

We zoeken iemand op korte termijn (liefst nog starten in 2021). Op korte termijn zou een week overdracht op locatie in ieder geval wenselijk zijn. Om deze reden kun je reageren t/m 5 november.
