About the Team
The Komaza Nursery team is responsible for scaling up production to growing and delivering a million seedlings each planning season. In order to hit these ambitious targets, we are composed of eager, self-driven, and detail-oriented teammates – who care as much about strictly following protocols as we do about our numbers. As the result of this hard work and rapid growth, we have become one of Kenya’s largest propagators of Eucalyptus seedlings, and the world’s largest and most successful Melia nursery.
About the Role
The Senior Nursery Manager oversees seedling production within a Nursery site. In conjunction with the Nursery Operations Coordinator (NOC), the Senior Nursery Manager prepares monthly production plans and leads the team towards attainment of the set targets. With the use of various databases, you will be required to monitor production progress and generate insights that lead to both tactical and strategic decisions. You will be responsible for materials and inputs usage under your production line including authorizing issuance, monitoring usage and mitigating against pilferage.
As a team leader, you will ensure that daily, weekly and monthly targets are being met within the qualitative parameters set and own the team’s outcomes. You are the go to person as far as the welfare of your team is concerned. You will monitor team morale, address conflicts within your team and ensure they are highly motivated and well resourced to deliver on their Key Performance Indicators. You will drive compliance by ensuring the team is well trained on Komaza policies, as well as Occupational Health and Safety and monitor your teams to ensure no breaches occur. In case of a breach, you are expected to take appropriate steps including reporting to the NOC as well as keeping good records on the same in line with set guidelines.
By observing challenges with production and Growth Operation Management Systems, the Senior Manager works with the Program Design team to highlight areas for improvement and participates in brainstorming as well as feedback sessions to generate viable scalable solutions.
