This is where we will post Riders for Health’s current job vacancies.

Country Director – Nigeria

Salary: Negotiable
Location: Abuja, Nigeria with some overseas travel

Are you a confident and effective leader looking for a new challenge?

Are you motivated to use your high-calibre leadership and management skills to make a difference to the lives of people in Nigeria? Riders for Health (Riders) is dedicated to make the ‘last mile of healthcare delivery’, the most important mile. Our pioneering work ensures that African health workers can reach their widespread communities using motorcycles and other vehicles, maintained in such a way that they never break down. The management of transport is the most neglected and yet one of the most vital aspects of development.

We are looking for a Country Director who will be ultimately responsible for achieving the mission and vision of Riders’ organisation or ‘programme’ in Nigeria. This means working with appropriate partners to deliver health impact in a way that is consistent with Riders’ values and that is financially viable. It also means ensuring that the programme’s impact is effectively monitored and evaluated, and that suitable opportunities for achieving financial sustainability are explored, developed and secured.

The Country Director is also responsible for the management, development and welfare of all the programme staff.

The successful candidate will be a seasoned and mature leader with the ability to develop a first-class team and instil a sense of shared responsibility. You will not be daunted by a challenge or by being accountable for all Riders’ operations in Nigeria.

The role is based at our office in Abuja, although travel to other sites will be required, as well as some international travel.
