Town clerk, Christopher Dube, told Southern Eye yesterday that Hwalima retired in September last year, while Magagula leaves at the end of this month.
“The City of Bulawayo is seeking a top-class health practitioner with a demonstrable track record in health services management to fill the above vacant position (health services director),” a council notice read.
The incumbent, Dube said, should possess a medical degree, a post-graduate degree or diploma in a relevant field, registered in terms of the Medical, Dental and Allied Professions Act and at least 10 years’ post-qualification relevant experience in middle management.
Key results areas that the person would focus on include protection of the public from various diseases, and promotion of an environmentally-friendly city through crafting and enforcing appropriate policies and procedures, among others.
Dube said due to Magagula’s pending retirement, they were inviting suitably qualified, experienced and mature individuals to apply for the position of housing director.
“Reporting to the town clerk, the person is responsible for effective provision of housing and community services to Bulawayo residents,” he said.
The person should have a degree in Social Sciences, an MBA or any other relevant Master’s Degree, at least 10 years’ experience as well as local government experience.
