The primary national passenger and cargo carrier in Uganda is called Uganda National Airlines Company Limited.
According to an advertisement published by the airline, “Uganda Airlines would like to employ a Chief Executive Officer (CEO).”
The advertisement states that the CEO’s responsibilities will include reporting to the board of directors, managing the company’s operations, and ensuring its success.
The strategy for the airline must be developed and carried out by the CEO.
Candidates must hold a bachelor’s degree with honors in any discipline, have completed post-graduate administration coursework, have 10 years of aviation experience, etc.
Among other things, the necessary abilities include innovation, decision-making, business savvy, people management, and team building.
According to the post, applicants from other industries who have equivalent experience and can provide evidence of their competence to carry out the aforementioned activities are also encouraged to apply.
According to Waiswa Bageya, the permanent secretary of the Works Ministry, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has been selected to lead the search.
We created a bid document and terms of reference and sent them to KPMG, Ernst & Young, PwC, and another party instead of advertising. According to him, Bazzup.com’s comment, “We settled on PwC.”
According to him, the test would assess competency both inside and outside of Uganda and is not just for Ugandans.
According to PwC’s notice, the CEO will work with the airline to establish a hub at Entebbe International Airport for passengers connecting to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia as well as those traveling north to south and east to west across Africa.
Since its founding in 2019, Uganda Airlines has not had a permanent chief executive officer.
On a temporary basis, Cornwell Muleya was chosen to serve as the acting CEO.
He was fired in February of this year due to his mishandling of the airlines and corruption.
He then hurried to court and demanded Sh3.3 billion in damages.
He was detained and accused of disobeying the Inspectorate of Government’s directives last week.
Jenifer Bamuturaki was chosen to take over as acting CEO of Uganda Airlines when Muleya left.
