We operate from two offices – one in the UK and one in Malawi. Our office in Mzuzu, in northern Malawi, is the heart of our operations, from where we manage and run all our projects. Many of the 32-strong team in Malawi are from Nkhata Bay North, the district in which we work, so this is their stomping ground – they know the landscape, the climate, and the communities better than anyone.
Our UK operations, focusing mostly on fundraising, are based in central Bristol. We’re a small team, headed up by our co-founder and Managing Director, Jo Hook.
Managing Director Maternity Cover (Fixed contract), Bristol, UK
We’re looking for an experienced and passionate individual with significant leadership experience, ideally in senior management and the third sector. As Temwa is a rapidly growing NGO, you will play a crucial role in the organisation’s ongoing development by leading the Temwa team in the UK office, providing overall supervision and management of both this team and the senior management in Malawi. Covering the high level responsibilities of the UK MD requires you to be a strong visionary leader, with a passion for quality and accountability and whose main focus is to ensure that the humanitarian and development programmes in northern Malawi are carried out effectively. Based in our central Bristol office, you will oversee the UK team for 1.5 days a week throughout an 11 month fixed contract.
The current MD role has been split into three components with the MDMC role taking on 1.5 days a week and then the Fundraising Manager, the Communications Trust Fundraising Coordinator and Fundraising & Admin Assistant – all three taking on more hours and responsibilities to cover the corporate and high value donor fundraising work of the MD. The extra hours taken on by these staff members will equate to 2.5 days. The Finance & Systems Manager was due to be a 3 x day a week role and we have created a full time role, ensuring that 2 days a week of the MD’s role will now be covered by the Finance & Systems Manager. This reorganization of resources equates to 6 x days a week cover for the MD while they are on maternity leave. This, in fact, reflects the hours previously undertaken by the current MD and Temwa wants to ensure that adequate resource is provided while the MD is on maternity leave.
