Seeking job in Zambia or Southern Africa

By Brian Armstrong | 06 Jul, 2015

Hi,

I'm currently employed as Director of Architecture and Security (see my profile), but I worked in Zambia with the US CDC (2010-2011) as a Senior EHR Systems Developer Architect working on the SmartCare Electronic Health Record, and I'm very interested in returning to a role there or elsewhere in Southern Africa.

Though I'm Canadian my wife and children are from Zambia, and I really want to mentor and transfer the knowledge I have in Health IT Strategic Planning and Enterprise Architecture, and feel that my extensive background would be beneficial in the large systems/health governance arenas.

I like my current job but my heart and family are in Africa and that is where I would rather be. If anyone has a need for someone of my skillset and interests then please contact me as I'm ready to return to my wife and children's home continent!

Thank you and regards,
Brian Armstrong

Hi Terry,

I know Chris and have reached out to him, but they don't have anything at this time.

I'm reaching out to all points to broaden the base.

Thank you for your recommendation.
