Founded by the European Union and the Kenyan Government, the Micro Enterprises Support Programme Trust (MESPT) is a Kenyan organisation that has been in operation since 2003.
We are a financial institution and our objective is to promote economic growth, employment creation and poverty alleviation through support to enterprises.
We achieve this through our intermediaries, who provide institutional support and capacity building, financial as well as business development services to improve the performance of enterprises (MSME, farmer groups and associations).
Our aim is to strengthen financial intermediaries in order to establish a strong, stable, market-based micro-finance sector in Kenya.
Today, and testimony to our quality of service delivery, our founder base has grown to include among others, Danida who have been supporting our Agriculture and Business Sector Programmes.
We have entered a five year funding partnership with Danida to upscale and ensure the sustainability of the Business Sector Programme Support (BSPS) programme.
It is for this programme that we seek to fill the following positions:
Regional Manager, Coast and Eastern Region
Reporting to the CEO and based in Mombasa, you who will oversee the operations of MESPT in the Counties of Malindi, Machakos, Taita Taveta and the field offices in Kwale and Matuu.
Knowledge Management Officer
Reporting to the Business Development Services (BDS), Manager, and based in Nairobi, you will be expected to seek and disseminate information on the latest developments in Business Development Services and share it with the other practitioners in Kenya and the Region, using both traditional and more innovative information gathering and dissemination methodologies and technology.
Reporting to the Regional Manager, you will be based in Matuu and will be responsible for the management and delivery of the technical, capacity building and administrative aspects of the programme in Matuu, Kitui and Mwingi areas.
We wish to fill these positions with experienced and dynamic university graduates who not only have the relevant and required years of experience, but who can demonstrate their passion for the development of value chains and making markets work for the poor (M4P).
We will therefore be interested in your experience and accomplishments in this area.
