Bima is a young company, focusing on selling and managing end-to-end mobile microinsurance products and services to mobile operators in emerging markets. We are currently looking for a dynamic, passionate and experienced person to manage our existing operation in Bangladesh.

Day-to-day operational running of our entity in Bangladesh, including P&L responsibility, stakeholder management, product management, new product development, administration of distribution channels (c1000 agents on the ground), and people management.

Permanent relocation to Dhaka, Bangladesh is required.

Overall, the Country Manager must be attuned to value the details as well as be able to understand and drive towards the big picture. Analytical and quick thinking in a fast-paced environment are essential.

The Country Manager is an enthusiastic problem solver and thrives on being engaged at all levels of the operation. As the key point of contact for both the mobile operator and the local team, the Country Manager plays a pivotal role in the success of our local operation.

Reports to the Asia Regional Manager.

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Execution of current plans and development of new initiatives for the operation in Bangladesh - working with local Bima team, local mobile operator team and local insurance company to achieve agreed mid and long term plans and goals
  • Responsible for meeting subscriber targets and cost efficiency initiatives for the local entity as a whole (P&L responsibility)
  • Carry out day-to-day activities and monitor performance of members of the local team (including a project manager and sales agents) and ensure work is progressing as planned
  • Manage schedules, budgets, financials, and overall company organization to ensure plans and new projects are clearly communicated, understood and executed upon
  • Effectively and efficiently plan and prioritize all resources working across the operation based on company goals
  • Consistently identify new opportunities and needs that clients may not recognize and ensure approaches and solutions are linked to objectives and future needs
  • Consistently manage client relationship and expectations, ensure delivery of the highest quality service, and solicit and act on client feedback

Keen applicants are expected to have the following skills and experience:

  • Languages: fluent in English, Bengali a plus
  • 5 years minimum work experience within consulting or equivalent experience in PMO in this sector
  • Experience within Africa, Latam and emerging Asia Pac or insurance industries is a plus but not a must.
  • Looking for someone eager to live and work in Dhaka, Bangladesh (relocation expected) and enthusiastic about running and developing a growing operation further
  • Demonstrated ability to motivate, support and understand different stakeholders and cultures, ideally in emerging markets
  • Strong attention to detail, with focus on stakeholder management, product management, product development and performance of distribution channels
