Uganda Airlines recruits new bosses following Joel Ssenyonyi COSASE probe

Uganda Airlines has announced new 16 vacancies for senior officials urging candidates from the public to join the national carrier in different capacities to boost its performance and improve its operations, leading many to believe that previous bosses have been fired after the stringent Public Accounts Committee on Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE) exposure.

The new jobs were announced in a local newspaper on Monday September 26 2022, barely a month after COSASE penalised the airlines over misallocation of public funds and mismanagement.

The advert appeared as an indication that previous position holders could have been fired and that those who have been holding them in acting capacity would have ti undergo a competitive procedure in order to attain substansive capacity.

Jennifer Bamuturaki, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Airline, who has been deadlocked for weeks in the investigation, maintains her position as it does not appear in the job listings.

The Airline has encouraged all qualified persons to apply, with a zero-tolerance policy towards discrimination and harassment of any kind.

”Discrimination and all unlawful harassment (including sexual harassment) in employment are not tolerated. We encourage success based on our individual merits and abilities without regard to race, colour, religion, national origin, gender, age, disability, marital status, citizenship status, military status, protected veteran status or employment status. We support and obey laws that prohibit discrimination everywhere we do business. Uganda Airlines fully considers all qualified applicants,” the advert reads.

Potential candidates are expected to submit their application documents through the Airlines online portal on the website, where the jobs are also listed, before 5:00 pm October 7, 2022.

The listed jobs include: Chief Finance Officer (CFO), Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), Company Secretary, Head of Maintenance and Engineering, Head of Flight Operations, and Head of Ground Operations, Senior Manager Information, Technology and Data Management, Human Resources Manager, Manager Cabin Services, Company secretary, among others.
