Muso - Regional Human Resources Director Movemeback African opportunity cover image

Description

Muso provide proactive health care to 350,000 patients in peri-urban and rural Mali, and embed rigorous academic research and strategic advocacy to identify and share strategies that can accelerate global efforts for child survival, maternal health, and universal health care. Muso believes no one should die waiting for health care. That’s why we’ve set out to create a cure for delay. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster, within hours of the moment they become sick. To do this, we partner with communities facing extreme poverty.

 

Muso has spent more than a decade creating and improving their Proactive Care model, preparing it to serve the global effort for universal health care. They have documented rapid health improvements across the populations they serve: a 2018 study found that communities they serve in Mali, which previously saw some of the world’s highest child mortality rates, sustained child mortality rates lower than any country in sub-Saharan Africa for five years, and ultimately reached a rate on par with that of the United States. Patient access to care increased tenfold. Muso now serves the governments of Mali and Cote d’Ivoire in their efforts to translate the results of this research into national policy and practice. Given the transformations in health care access and survival Muso has documented, over the next five years their direct service, research, and advocacy will work to advance a new global model for health care. This transformation requires an extraordinary team.

 

Muso are seeking a passionate, purpose-driven HR expert to lead their Human Resources department as it builds and supports a team of trailblazers to make this transformation possible.

 

Your Purpose
To deliver on our mission, Muso’s rapidly growing team will need exceptional support. As the new Regional Director of Human Resources (RDHR), you will apply global best practices to build best-in-class systems for recruitment, onboarding, performance management, professional development, diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a strategic partner, technical expert, advisor, and member of the Muso leadership team, you will be responsible for building and improving systems, providing solution-focused analysis, and contributing to program and management decisions which deliver results and advance Muso’s mission.

 

The Role
The role of the RDHR is to mentor a small, dynamic human resources team, solve complex organizational challenges, and deliver all people management functions and services. The RDHR partners with Muso leadership and operations to design and execute the organizational strategy for the full range of HR solutions that enable team members to deliver on their goals and objectives. The RDHR will drive the implementation and adaptation of HR global initiatives and practices across offices in multiple countries, as the most senior HR leader in the organization. This position will be based in Bamako, Mali or Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, with travel to other Muso offices.
