Vacancy: Composting Supervisor, Kumasi, Ghana

For a new compost production project in Kumasi, Safisana Ghana and Clean Team Ghana are seeking to hire a Composting Supervisor to take responsibility for the coordination, monitoring, inventory and supervision of a compost production pilot in Kumasi. The contract is initially for six months, and can be extended if the pilot is successful. 

About us

Safisana is an international social enterprise that has developed a circular waste-to-resource business model for local waste treatment for governments, utilities and food processing industries. Our recycling plant in Ashaiman, (Greater Accra Area, Ghana) turns organic waste and faecal sludge into high-value products: renewable energy (biogas and electricity) and organic fertiliser. 
Clean Team Ghana provides waterless, household toilet services to low-income customers in Kumasi. Clean Team collects the waste from customer homes twice a week and is currently collecting approximately 165 tonnes of waste per month.
Safisana and Clean Team have formed a partnership over the past two years to explore collaboration on waste treatment and how to use the waste Clean Team collects as a valuable resource for the production of organic fertiliser. The next step in this collaboration is a composting pilot in Kumasi.
