FROM THE CEO – FRED SWANIKER I am looking for a Chief of Staff to join my team. This person should have up to 2-3 years of management consulting or investment banking experience and will serve as my right-hand person. In this fast-paced, dynamic role, the Chief of Staff will get first-hand exposure of what it takes to lead a rapidly growing global venture. Last year, our company was listed as one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world (by Fast Company), and I was recognized as one of the 100 most influential people in the world (by Time Magazine). Our goal is to develop 3 million leaders in Africa by 2035. Interested candidates can learn more about me and my work from this interview I recently gave to Time Magazine. This is a great role pre-business school. We have an excellent track record of getting folks into the top business schools with 3 of my staff entering the Stanford MBA class this fall.?? As an organization we have decided to operate 100% remotely (even after the pandemic), so you can work in this role from anywhere in the world. However, the ideal preference would be for the Chief of staff to be based in Europe, the Middle East or African time zone.
