Invisible Children (“IC”) is looking for a creative problem solver with a business, fashion merchandising, or social entrepreneurship background to manage the logistics and coordination of our Mend Program in northern Uganda. Mend is a social enterprise geared toward facilitating financial independence and development for women formerly abducted by the LRA. The program currently supports 22 seamstresses who use their tailoring skills to create unique, high-quality handbags. Each Mend product carries the name of the seamstress who made it and seams a personal connection between the products, their makers, and consumers.
This is an exciting time for Mend, as we are expanding the product line and increasing production, and we are looking for someone to drive this expansion. This person will work closely with the seamstresses and support staff to implement product-design, oversee soft goods production, coordinate with Headquarters in San Diego. The ideal candidate is both relationally and logistically minded, and loves working on a team. S/he is also driven, flexible and a strong communicator.
See if you’re qualified here.
