Country Head

Senior manager - Full time

Kyiv, Ukraine

Responsibilities

INSCALE is looking for a highly motivated, proactive, enthusiastic, and ambitious Country Manager to lead and grow our Offshore Development Center in Kyiv.
You will represent INSCALE in our Ukrainian office and be responsible for managing and expanding our operations in the country.

The role implies:
• Leadership of people at all levels within the organization – both INSCALE core employees as well as our client’s team members.
• Direct interaction with our clients to establish good relationships/ partnership achieve good understanding of their needs – and deliver our services according to those needs.
• Proficient planning in order to build projections, charts, reports, plans and presentations with short notice.
• Manage risks up front and setting high standards for quality and timeliness in all deliverables
• Take the lead in global INSCALE initiatives within your competency area

In order to succeed in this position, you need to be:

A problem solver who likes changes and innovation, working independently, being motivated by delivering results. You thrive when you can successfully influence others. You are aware that you sometimes lack patience and do not depend on consistency and stability to achieve the necessary results. You put structures in place in your organization and your own work, obtaining a structured approach and the operational accuracy needed. You see and control the big picture, delegate the details and build a strong team dynamic.

A fast paced, ever-changing work environment, where goals need to be met, is your kind of place!

Variety in your work day brings you a sense of fulfilment, so bouncing from an internal operational meeting, to a client call, to an interview is right up your alley. You have a strong passion for people as well as for what you’re doing on a daily basis. You must be a compelling communicator, influential storyteller, and persistent motivator.

While extraversion might not be your highest drive, you keep different personalities in mind while you coach your team, speak with a client or collaborate with detail-oriented peers. You have a strong service-oriented approach and are careful not to let your natural dominance control situations where gathering input from others might be the key to obtain more beneficial results.
