Malawi Olympic Committee (MOC) has beefed up its secretariat staff with the recruitment of Projects Officer Lovemore Kanyoza with effect from July 1.
Kanyoza was recruited after emerging successful in an interview for the position advertised in the media.
MOC President Oscar Kanjala said the role of the Projects Officer would be a liaison role between the board and the organisation’s partners apart from monitoring projects.
“The Projects Officer would help us improve our performance of projects management. The Projects Officer will be an interface with board members, associations and our partners,” Kanjala said.
He said the need to recruit Projects Officer has risen after changes regarding the operations of International Olympic Committee and Commonwealth Games Federation.
“The Projects Officer would manage structures and infrastructures and coordinate with our official partners such as Commonwealth Games Federation in the absence of board members,” he said.
“For example ahead of Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia there will be a lot of engagements because the conditions of qualifying have changed.”
During the associations Annual General Meeting held in March this year in Blantyre MOC also disclosed that there would step up the commercialization drive for the body and its affiliates to enable them generate income and become self reliant.
