Project Details


Description and Impact

In 2017 our medical waste collection company, which is based in Uganda is in a phase of expansion from only covering the Central region to covering all the regions of the country in the area of medical waste and hazardous waste disposal. We recently received an investment which doubles its capacity and have hired a marketing & sales representative to lead this expansion. We are looking for a marketing & sales specialist to build the capacity of the newly recruited marketing & sales representative (a recent graduate Environmental Sciences) with the aim to design the marketing & sales strategy to scale up the company from 11 hospitals and 400 clinics in the Central region to 30 hospitals and 2000 clinics throughout the country in the next 3 years.

- Develop the 3-year marketing and sales strategy together with the Ugandan marketing & sales representative
