Digital Development and ICT4D Advisor (full-time, remote)

We are a team of digital development advisors and offer strategic and technical consulting services to the private sector, government, donors, implementing partners and NGOs.

We are contracted for program design, research work (including desk research, interviews or surveys), implementation support and project management (learn about our services and projects ). Our mission is to create social, economic and environmental change using digital technology in Africa.

The role

We are looking for a new digital development advisor to take on client projects for technical and strategic consulting. Additionally, as a young company, we would like you to help us diversify our customer base, work on client proposals and to support growing the organization.

You should have a good understanding of digital technology, either in some key areas like digital transformation, e-government, digital health or digital agriculture, or as a generalist with an open and curious mind.

Experience in technical or strategic consulting is also required, and you need to be able to structure, document and present ideas, both in writing and orally.

We are a young organization so roles can evolve and will be shaped around your interests and client needs. We work mostly remotely, but we expect reactivity, full commitment and detailed time-tracking - this is not a side job!

We encourage women to apply. Good luck!
