Leading Ladies Africa is a women-focused non-profit with the key objective of promoting women empowerment and gender equality for African women. We are also committed to diversity and inclusion inclusivity by increasing the representation of women of African origin in Leadership, Business, the Corporate Sector and Politics.

We are looking for someone to lead our Programs efforts, preferably based in Lagos Nigeria. You will report directly to the Founder.

What You’ll Do
  • Develop and expand the existing Programs that are currently ongoing at Leading Ladies Africa

  • Write effective concept notes, proposals, reports on LLA’s impact for all funders and donor partners
What You’ll Need
  • Self starter: LLA is an organization of entrepreneurs and we are seeking people who enjoy building things from the bottom up too! Stuff changes fast in our world so you’ll need to be highly adaptable as well as calm under pressure.
  • Great advocate: We’re looking for people who can distill complex ideas into simple, but intellectually credible, discussions. You’ll need to write well and have the creative ability to tell stories–about our brand and the specific ways we’re empowering women and promoting gender equality.

  • Experienced spokesperson: Confident, capable and ability to share the LLA story in a compelling and resonant way
  • Team player: We’re looking for someone that enjoys working with others to get stuff done–and who can deal with the ambiguity that sometimes comes from working cross-functionally.
  • Proven track record with verifiable experience in Program Management.
