Mar 16

AMI is a pan-African entrepreneurial social business that empowers African entrepreneurs, job seekers and managers through practical and accessible learning and development tools. We have developed Africa’s first online social learning platform (web and mobile), and combine cutting-edge technology, world-class content, in-person workshops and innovative coaching and feedback tools. We have reached over 20,000 individuals and are already working with dozens of organisations in East and Southern Africa including businesses, investment funds, business associations and NGOs.

AMI is expanding rapidly and is looking for facilitators to join our team in Rwanda as we expand our management and entrepreneur training offering in the country.

We are looking for an ambitious and talented Programme Manager to adapt our world-class content to meet the needs of our business clients, project-manage client learning programs end-to-end, manage our network of facilitators, and facilitate select client in-person learning sessions.

The Programme Manager will report to the Country Manager Rwanda, and will work in a team of Programme Managers and Associates, and with the learning and business development teams, to support clients in Rwanda and across East Africa. You will be a key player in a dynamic, international team focused obsessively on results. At AMI, we work hard, innovate constantly and have fun in the process. This is a chance for someone with a passion for learning, technology, development and business growth to be part of Africa’s transformation. We are particularly interested in hearing from people with experience in business consulting, training, management education or learning and development

The Programme Manager must be a driven, organized, tech-savvy professional with great people and project-managing skills, and the ability to analyse a business and understand its learning and development needs.
