    enterprise development. Honey harvested from beehives hung by women’s

    passionate, energetic and hard-working individual to fill the position

    linkages between the cooperatives and larger resellers, and ensuring
    the overall profitability of the enterprise. Preference will be given to
    individuals with prior experience establishing a social enterprise in
    Tanzania, demonstrated ability to access East African markets, and/or a
    strong business background.
    The successful candidate must have
    impressive communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to work
    in a multi-cultural environment with diverse stakeholders, and
    significant capability to work independently. This position will be
    based at the Noloholo Environmental Center but will require travel to
    remote program areas with limited facilities, safari camps and lodges,
    as well as urban marketplaces; applicants should enjoy a balance of
    travel and office time. Acting as a public emissary of TPW’s women’s
    enterprise program as well as an important role model for the 77+
    women’s groups partnering with TPW, the successful candidate will
    exhibit strong leadership characteristics. A team player, the individual
    will coordinate and interact closely with TPW’s bee-keeping
    program officer as well as other team members. We anticipate the
    position will require equal amounts of time for program development,
