Network Manager at Africa Foresight Group

Africa Foresight Group is an African-owned and managed advisory firm with offices in London and Accra. At AFG, we aim to build local companies into global champions by offering world-class, locally accessible services. We are excited to work with talented leaders with a whole-hearted commitment to change the manner in which African economies grow.

As the network manager at AFG, you will be in charge of building two exciting new initiatives that focus on offering training and PR opportunities to a curated list of “hidden champions” companies in Africa. Both initiatives, scheduled to run for at least 3 years, are conceptualized based on the firm belief that the African continent is home to exciting businesses that need more visibility and scaling support. The location for this is Accra, Ghana – however, we are open to hiring a candidate who is based in Johannesburg, Lagos or Nairobi and willing to work remotely.

  • In your 3-5 years of working experience, you have focused on working in the African private sector and/or NGOs that focus on building stakeholder networks
