Duma Works is recruiting a General Manager for our client; Takamoto Biogas.
About Takamoto: Takamoto Biogas is a rapidly growing renewable energy company in Nairobi providing biogas systems to small farmers in rural Kenya.
Building on two years of market research and installation experience, we have developed a new business model and technology that will bring the many benefits of biogas energy to the masses in Kenya by eliminating the main hurdle to its adoption – the high upfront cost.
The new technology overcomes the biggest hurdle in biogas implementation, reducing the initial cost to consumers from KES 100,000 per unit by 85%.
In Kenya alone, there are two million farmers with at least one cow who are potential clients. Takamoto have piloted the new technology in Githunguri, and have now installed 300 systems. Having proven the demand, they are now preparing to scale up operations.
Biogas is a versatile fuel that can be used for cooking, lighting and heating that many people can produce on their own farms with their animal waste.
Use of biogas also decreases deforestation, reduces our clients’ workload and burns cleanly, protecting their health and homes.
The General Manager will handle all aspects of the operations of the business including distribution of products, research and development, accounting, marketing, sales, human resource recruiting, quality control, payment collection and credit approval.
The General Manager will report to the Board of Directors and will operate to annual plans developed with and approved by the Board of Directors.
Work pattern and location: Full time, 40 hrs/week, office based in Githunguri for at least 3 days/week, other days in Nairobi where required for external meetings
