What is the best way to follow up on my application?

We are grateful to the numerous qualified individuals who are interested in working with us, which creates a competitive selection process. Although we receive many applications, we take the time to review each application thoroughly. While we are reviewing each application, you may experience a brief gap in communication. Every candidate will receive a status update on their application and People Operations will be in contact if more information regarding your application is needed.

If you have been invited to participate in a skills assessment or interview, and you have any questions, please reach out to your recruiter on our People Operations team.

How does Last Mile Health conduct interviews?

Most interviews at Last Mile Health are conducted by video conference to allow for flexibility for both staff and the candidate. When there is a request for an in-person interview, People Operations will work closely with the candidate to ensure the cost of travel is covered.

What qualities do we look for in a strong candidate?

Our staff have a diverse range of experiences, skills, and backgrounds. However, all of our staff share the following key competencies: mission and values alignment, technical ability, growth mindset, sector knowledge and understanding, and potential for growth. Our staff understand the critical need of our work and are motivated to solve problems, and are willing to wear many different hats.

Are all jobs open to both international and national candidates?

Positions at Last Mile Health are generally open to candidates based on the candidate’s ability to work in the country where the position is located. A small number of roles are open to international candidates, for whom Last Mile Health would support in accessing work authorization and the appropriate visa/residency status. If a role is open to international candidates, that will be stated on the job posting. National candidates (applicants who are citizens/residents of the country in which a job is located) are encouraged to apply for any position located in their country for which they meet the criteria.

Do you sponsor US visas for international applicants?

We generally do not sponsor US visas for international applicants. Visas for positions based in other countries are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Do you conduct informational interviews?

We conduct informational interviews on a case-by-case basis; however, we do not have the capacity to respond to all informational interview requests at this time. To ensure a fair and equitable selection process, we do not allow managers to perform informational interviews for positions in which they are directly hiring. 

To learn about our work and organizational history, review our story, what we do, where we work, and our organizational values and connect with us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter).

What is Last Mile Health’s culture and work environment?

We have offices in Liberia, Malawi, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, and the United States, as well as some staff working remotely around the world. Although we are geographically separated, we are all linked together by our unique culture and traditions, including our shared values and beliefs.

We asked some of our staff to describe the working culture and environment in one word, and the responses included: “collaborative,” “dynamic,” “fast-paced,” “engaging,” “high performing,” “informal,” “team-focused,” “flexible.”

At Last Mile Health, we pride ourselves on being innovative thinkers that continuously engage different perspectives to find solutions. Because our work addresses a critical need, we work quickly and set ambitious goals for ourselves, as individuals and as an organization. If this is an environment where you see yourself thriving, we encourage you to apply.
