Interested in getting Administration and Organisational Development experience?

To support its current and planned projects, WoMena requires effective administrative setups and organisational systems. We are looking for two to three Administration Officers with a flair for systematic thinking, management, administration and processes. The AOs will among other things be responsible for managing WoMena’s administrative systems, developing new structures, supporting the HR team and ensuring relevant documents are up to date, organised and available for our volunteers on our shared drive. We imagine that the National AO will further be  responsible for tasks related to our office in Kampala including interactions with local authorities.
