The Vivo Energy group serves over 700,000 customers daily through its network of 1,800 service stations in 15 countries and exports lubricants to a number of other African countries. Focused on fuelling Africa’s future we make our customers’ lives easier and their experience with us more convenient, enjoyable and rewarding.

Our vision is to become the most respected energy business in Africa.

Vivo Energy plc’s shares were admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange in May 2018 with a secondary inward listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

The project

You’ll be working closely with the Senior Executives and reporting to the CEO, to help drive our analytics strategy.

Vivo Energy is in the process of improving the data collection from our retail operations with the implementation of a new ERP system. In tandem, we are focusing on improving our approach to insight and data capabilities. We are looking for a consultant to start work initially on the Ivory Coast market (one of our big 5 markets), to articulate an analytics strategy and build a local team to deliver the strategy. You’ll be using the data currently available to the business, and also preparing for what can be improved when a new ERP system and other systems are in place.

The second phase of the project will then be in Kenya, where you’ll complete a similar process of agreeing on a data strategy and ensuring the local team is set-up to deliver against the strategy but leveraging off the new ERP and other recently implemented systems.

The ultimate output will be a playbook for each local market, and a central analytics team (including a permanent Head of Analytics) set-up. If the project goes well, there’s every potential for this role to become the permanent Head of Analytics.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a consultant at the equivalent of EM or AP level (likely 5-10 years consulting experience). The candidate will have experience in developing analytics strategies, and ensuring an organization is able to deliver against these strategies (structure, capabilities, reporting).

The ideal candidate will be comfortable operating at Board level and will be excited by the proposition of delivering a new analytics strategy across a $6bn business operating in a dynamic market.


The project will be based in Abidjan, and you will be provided with an apartment. You will be able to travel back to your home country every 3-4 weeks over the project’s length.

We’re looking for someone to start ASAP, so please don’t delay in applying.
