As an essential part of the national economy of Botswana since independence, the Botswana Meat Commission (BMC) has made a significant contribution to the development of the country over the years and currently operates one of the largest export abattoirs in Africa, exporting beef regionally to the African market and internationally in European, Asian and Middle Eastern Markets. Constant monitoring by the Botswana Veterinary Services allows the BMC, which is certified to the ISO 9001 quality system throughout its process, to maintain its high standard of production. For the role of Chief Executive Officer, BMC seeks a strong strategist and turn-around specialist with excellent business and financial acumen, along with out-standing leadership and management capabilities, to steer the organization as it transforms to a truly commercial self-sufficient entity.

Additionally, a related business degree or equivalent is essential, and a post graduate qualification will be advantageous.
