Jacaranda Health is an international maternal health non-profit with a team of about 110 people that has had the majority of its programming and operations based in Kenya with a small US office (501c3) providing central operations and finance oversight. The organization continues to grow in size and complexity and is now expanding its programs to other African countries. 

Our team in Kenya is supported by a local HR team in Nairobi. However, we also have a team of 6 in Ghana, and about 6 third country nationals in Kenya and globally, and 3 employees in the US. The part-time consultancy would work with our Global Finance and Operations manager to coordinate HR support for these global team members.

We are looking for a junior- to mid-level HR expert, i.e. someone with 3-5 years of HR experience, ideally including some familiarity with HR support in nonprofit organizations with multi-country operations. The work could be structured as consultancy or part-time employment.

  • Manage our PEO relationship in Ghana (which oversees 6 employees)

  • Support negotiation of employment contracts in Ghana with existing employees

  • Support hiring of additional staff as needed

  • General HR support for staff in Ghana
