Summer Internship, Ignite Fund (Monrovia, Liberia)

Time frame: 3-6 months (beginning May-June 2018)

Ignite Fund Liberia is a Pico-Cap investment fund making quasi-equity investments in small and growing businesses in post-conflict Liberia. Ignite Fund Liberia is looking for Masters student or Graduate with a degree in Finance, Business Administration, Economics or other related field. The intern will work with a small and motivated fund management team based in Monrovia. The position offers first hand experience with portfolio management, due diligence, deal structuring and financial management while providing an opportunity to work directly with the Fund Manager and portfolio companies. The internship will give applicants an opportunity to learn about the intricacies of small/medium business ownership in Liberia and the effects of direct quasi-equity investments in a post-conflict economy.

Qualifications:

  • Masters degree, or currently a candidate, in Finance, Business Administration, Economics (or related field)
  • Experience with fund management
  • Excellent written and verbal English skills

About Ignite Fund Liberia:

Small Liberian businesses struggle to gain access to financing from traditional financial institutions because they lack collateral, operating history and positive cash flow. In Liberia there is a mismatch between the investments entrepreneurs need and the investments most impact funds are willing to make. Many funds have descended into Liberia hoping to make investments in the $250,000 to $3 million range, only to find a lack of suitable opportunities. At the same time, Liberian entrepreneurs are looking for $20,000 - $100,000 investments and are unable to find them.

Ignite Fund Liberia solves this problem by making up to $250,000 investments ($50,000 on average) in Pico-Cap companies. These companies are generally small, local businesses with the potential of first-year annual free cash flow between $10,000 and $20,000. Investments are quasiequity, meaning they are intended to be a hybrid of an equity and debt structure. Investments are structured with low interest loan contracts and revenue sharing agreements. In addition to financial instruments, Ignite invests in technical assistance - particularly in coaching and mentoring of portfolio companies - and finance and accounting through a centralized bookkeeping system.

For further information regarding the position and renumeration, or to apply, please contact the Fund Manager @ cesteinbarth@genglobal.org - Applicants, please include a CV and cover letter.

Summer Internship, Flare Emergency Response (Nairobi, Kenya)

3-6 MONTH FELLOWSHIP STARTING MAY 2018 (flexible); deadline: April 15

Flare is a fast-growing startup building the emergency response of the future. Our vision is that no matter where you are, or who you are, emergency response is only minutes away.

In just under a year of operating in Kenya, we have integrated the largest aggregate fleet of ambulance and fire responders on one digital platform, reduced response times by three-fold, and attracted tens of thousands of members onto our consumer-facing product, Rescue, through corporate partnerships and direct to consumer sales.

This early success is largely due to the heroes that use the Flare platform: medical professionals, ambulance operators, and firefighters. They inspired us to build Flare, and now we work together to build the future of emergency response. Flare is scaling up in Kenya with plans to expand to other major cities such as Casablanca, Johannesburg, Lagos, and Accra. Check us out on the BBC, the Economist, and Quartz.

About the Role

As the Special Projects Strategist, you will be our internal consultant, process engineer, and team strategy guru. You can define and work on special projects for our key work-streams: dispatch operations, first-response partnerships, consumer-facing product sales (that’s flying off the shelf!), and growth and business development opportunities.

This will be a fast-paced and agile role with a ton of on-the-job learning. Our ideal candidate is self-directed and creative, enjoys working with people and data, and thrives in dynamic and unstructured settings.

Start Date: May 2018 (flexible)

Roles and responsibilities:

  • Develop a systems-level view of the business, including key work-streams like dispatch operations, first-response partnerships, and Rescue customer engagement
  • Identify opportunities to build or streamline processes and improve customer experience through user feedback and data-driven methods
  • Set up the above as a continuous improvement process to identify issues, develop solutions, and evaluate progress
  • Lead big strategy brainstorms with the team to define growth opportunities then translate to implementation and work plans
  • Embrace a self-directed role that is constantly on the look out for operational improvements, strategic opportunities, and ways to improve customer experience

Requirements: We love consultants, creatives, designers, engineers, or techies. Our team is diverse, and we recognize the importance of bringing together different backgrounds. Some nice-to-haves include:

  • Ability to derive meaningful insights from qualitative and quantitative data and translate into implementable, customer-centric solution
  • Interest in working in a start-up environment in an emerging market, which means double the fun and double the risk
  • Experience in healthcare, logistics, internet/consumer technology, or familiarity with Africa, though none are mandatory as long as you believe in the mission and like tech-enabled solutions!

Perks:

  • Make a huge impact by revolutionizing emergency response and healthcare
  • Help define the direction of an exciting start-up, including how we expand after Nairobi
  • Work directly with both co-founders (Maria and Caitlin) on a daily basis
  • Boxing workouts and runs, daily delicious team lunches, and Kenyan coffee (it’s good!)
  • Nairobi is amazingly fun and adventurous, both in terms of nightlife and access to safaris, beach trips, and excursions all over Kenya. Check out NYTimes 36 Hours.

Compensation: Monthly start-up stipend. We’ll fly you out, give you a place to stay, show you a great time and take care of you while you’re here.

Contact us by April 15th at joinus@flare.co.ke and sisi@flare.co.ke, and note the job title in the subject of the email.

Our Values

  • Unity: at Flare, we believe that we are greater than the sum of our parts. Along with our ambulance company and hospital partners, and using the Flare technology, we can effectively service the entire country, guaranteeing better response times and better coverage than any one company could ever do alone.
  • Integrity: we make a promise to our partners that we will always be transparent and remain committed to growing their businesses alongside ours.
  • Excellence: at Flare we are aim to make quality emergency care universal. We’ve made a lot of progress, but it will take grit, creativity, and an ongoing commitment to being better than yesterday - as individuals, as a team, and as a greater network of emergency response.
  • Speed: in an emergency, every minute matters. It can save your life. We value speed in first response as much as in our day to day work.

    Rescue Ambassador, Flare (Nairobi, Kenya)

    Flare is a fast-growing startup building the emergency response of the future. Our vision is that no matter where you are, or who you are, emergency response is only minutes away.  

    In just under a year of operating in Kenya, we have the largest fleet of ambulances and fire responders on one hotline, have massively reduced response times, and have attracted tens of thousands of members through corporate partnerships.

    The early success of this network is largely due to the heroes that use the Flare platform: medical professionals, hospitals, ambulance operators, and firefighters. These are the partners who initially inspired us to build the Flare platform, and who we are now looking to further engage in building the emergency response of the future.

    Rescue Ambassador

    We are looking for a strategist, people person and public speaker. You are responsible for representing the Rescue brand to corporates and consumers. Rescue is the way that you access the growing and extensive Flare network of first responders through a membership service. We are obsessed with perfecting the customer journey and ensuring that we become a permanent service that you cannot live without.

    We are a lean team of two founders, several tech and healthcare people, and a puppy. We are growing and focused on creating a fun, solid, and passionate atmosphere in our office. You should be a team player who is ready to join a small and growing family

    Ideally, you:

    • Love and understand unbelievable service.  Until everyone realizes our vision of providing life-saving services through Rescue, you aren’t happy. We believe only the best service is what leads to someone becoming a loyal member.

    • Only accept quality work from yourself and others. You take ownership over your work and pride in what you do and produce. You enjoy being critical yet tactful and helping others also produce quality work.     

    • Enjoy mentoring and people management. You are helping to shape the direction of the Rescue product and team and should like to assemble teams and guide the direction of something new.

    • Love being social and are energized by meeting new clients, members and engaging with the public. You draw people to you and secretly enjoy being in the public eye.

    • Have a background. Have worked post University for minimum of 5 years.  We don’t necessarily care what and where, but we want you to be experienced. This shouldn’t be the first time you’re in a leadership position (in a big way). We want to hear about other experiences where you’ve started a new business unit, team, built a loyal customer following or done something impressive.  

    Responsibilities:

    • Manage the growing portfolio of corporate partners and individual households who we have committed to providing life-saving emergency services.

    • Help define the customer journey and how we ensure it matches our vision and values from the point of awareness to selling to providing our services.

    • Manage the day-to-day of the customer experience and quickly learn what is and isn’t working to adapt our engagement strategy and overall journey.

    • Work with our Medical Dispatchers and Sales’ teams to ensure consistency throughout our service provision and promotion and to incorporate learnings and feedback.

    • Represent the Rescue brand through meetings, the media and public events.

    Our Values

    Unity: at Flare, we believe that we are greater than the sum of our parts. Along with our ambulance company and hospital partners, and using the Flare technology, we can effectively service the entire country, guaranteeing better response times and better coverage than any one company could ever do alone.

    Integrity: we make a promise to our partners that we will always be transparent and remain committed to growing their businesses alongside ours.

    Operations & Sales Strategy Interns, Clean Team (Kumasi, Ghana)

    Clean Team are looking for a superstar to help us with operations strategy. This is a great opportunity for an entrepreneurial, detail-orientated individual to help a leading sanitation social enterprise grow effectively.

    Who are we and why do we exist?

    Billions of people around the world do not have access to the kind of toilet you and I likely take for granted. This is the lottery of birth, they have done nothing wrong.

    Clean Team is a social enterprise based in Kumasi, Ghana that seeks to bridge the gap. We are providing a sanitation solution to low income households in Kumasi, with over 8,000 people currently benefiting from our service.

    Public toilets are often unsanitary and inconvenient and sometimes fundamentally unsafe. Clean Team provides a container based toilet, with the cartridge being replaced regularly by a member of our operations team. Customers pay for the service, with the overwhelming majority of households paying less than they would be to use public toilets. Customers tell us that they use our service because they save money and because of the increased dignity of having a toilet in their home.

    Clean Team is at an exciting point in its journey. We recently won the USAID Award for Innovation for our mobile money implementation and Ernst and Young’s EGS group found that of the 6 largest container based sanitation business globally, Clean Team was the most likely to make it to financial sustainability and be able to scale.

    Don’t get it wrong, we have made many mistakes! But we have learnt from them and see ourselves as one piece of a far wider puzzle to help bring lasting solutions to the problem. We were a founding member of the Container Based Sanitation Alliance to ensure that we can share our learnings across the industry and learn from the other wonderful organisations in the space.

    There are currently 40 people in the organisation, plus an impressive Board of Directors. We have huge growth plans for the coming year and are looking for bright, empathetic, passionate people to be a part of our journey.

    1. Operations Strategy Executive

    Reporting to the head of operations and working with the CEO, this is an important role that will feed into our growth strategy over the coming 3 years. We are looking for someone to bring new ideas and help us build toward tangible improvements in the time they are with us. We are looking for someone proactive and empathetic with a nerdy passion for process improvement that wants to test themselves in a developing market context.

    The problem is that we are growing rapidly. It is not the worst problem to have! We want to ensure that we continue to provide exceptional service to our customers and ensure that our employees continue to enjoy working in a safe, productive environment. In order to do this, we need to improve our supply chain and prepare ourselves for scale.

    You will be expected to:

    • Work with the operations team in the field to understand our supply chain from multiple perspectives and develop ideas for improvements including documenting process design
    • Work with the relevant teams in the organisation (and externally) to set up pilots to test ideas and effectively record the outcomes. We are an innovative organisation and the things that don’t work sometimes lead to our best learning
    • Cost and plan out improvements that you are recommending. This will involve getting out and about with various stakeholders to understand the various strategic initiatives that we need to work with and those that we do not

    2. Sales Strategy Executive

    Reporting to the head of sales and working with the CEO, this is an important role that will feed into our sales strategy over the coming 3 years. We are looking for someone to come in and cast fresh eyes over our sales strategy and bring new ideas. We are looking for someone proactive and empathetic with a thirst for sales and an understanding of developing strategy and making it real.

    The successful applicant will need to work with our various departments, potential and current customers and wider stakeholders to investigate future opportunities for the organisation. This means looking at our sales channels and interrogating our product ideas to provide recommendations on where we should further invest.

    You will be expected to:

    • Work with the sales and account management teams in the field to understand consumers and develop ideas for product and service improvements
    • Work with the relevant teams in the organisation (and externally) to set up pilots to test ideas and effectively record the outcomes. We are an innovative organisation and the things that don’t work sometimes lead to our best learning
    • Interrogate our channel approach and provide recommendations to focus or diversify our investments
    • Conduct analysis on the demographics of potential new sales territories to aid decision making regarding expansion strategy

    For both roles, whoever joins the team will need to be both analytical and personable, not afraid to get out and about with the teams, to get a real feel of what is happening before helping us to build for the future.

    People and ideas move our business forward and that means we commit to supporting you through the internship. You will be mentored by the head of operations and will have regular access to the CEO throughout your time with us. The work will build into our growth plan and so is an important piece of our strategy development and is being treated as such within the organisation.

    If you are looking for a real intellectual challenge at a rapidly growing social enterprise, want to learn from an award-winning team and help us improve sanitation, we would love to hear from you.

    Interested?

    If you would like to apply, please send a resume and covering letter to careers@cleanteamtoilets.com outlining why you would like to work with us, what skills you would bring and what you are hoping to get out of this internship by 5th April 2018. Authenticity is appreciated.

    Summer Internship, Alistair Group (Dar es Salaam, Tanzania)

    Application deadline: 15 March 2018

    COMPANY BACKGROUND

    Alistair James, who has been a resident in Tanzania since 2002, founded Alistair Group in 2006 and started transporting goods in 2008. Since then, the Company has gone from strength to strength and grown rapidly. Today, Alistair Group has become one of the largest logistics providers in the region, providing a number of end-to-end solutions to clients in a variety of sectors. We offer integrated services based on our core competencies of warehousing, material handling, road freight and customs clearance. Alistair Group has been able to develop quickly thanks to our approach to continually improve and innovate to surpass the best in the world. While we develop our core businesses, there are a number of associated opportunities and challenges that we would like to analyse further. Our summer internship programme is designed to be an immersive yet independent experience to help us analyse a variety of potential opportunities. This year we have selected the two opportunities / challenges below to focus on in detail.

    MBA INTERNSHIP FOCAL AREAS

    1. Alistair Technology: Development of the Business Case Alistair Technology is a standalone Alistair Group entity domiciled in the UK. This entity holds the intellectual property for all of Alistair Group’s technology developments (developed by our team in California). To date the Group has invested close to $2M developments ranging from a transport management system, tire measure application, automated quotation platform, and sub-contractor management service and is constantly developing new solutions to improve the efficiency of our business and our customers’ businesses. We want to package a few of our developments into a standalone product / business and look to finance further expansion with outside investors. This project will entail working with our technology and business development teams in order to define a business case, develop a pitch deck and identify potential investors.

    2. Analysis & Recommendation of Organizational Structure and Location: Alistair Group is celebrating its 10th birthday in 2018. Although the Company was founded in Tanzania today operations are spread across Sub Saharan Africa. As we look to our next phase of growth we believe that we need to centralise some functions and domicile them in a different geography and find ways to better support field staff and sales people spread across the region. This project will focus on understanding the Alistair Group structure and requirements, looking at best practice from other global businesses and making a recommendation as to the structure and location of the Alistair Group team going forward.

    INTERNSHIP DETAILS:

    Alistair Group will accept applications from students who are in between terms or have completed a Masters in Business Administration (or similar degree). Interns should have relevant experience in logistics, technology, consulting, finance or infrastructure development projects as well as great enthusiasm for working in an exciting organisation. Relevant work and language experience will be considered an advantage.

    Interns will be based in our Dar es Salaam offices. Interns will be expected to work standard office hours of 8am – 5pm and regularly engage in meetings with various stakeholders and management. Interns will be expected to work independently to progress projects between meetings including undertaking regional travel as required. On a weekly basis interns will report on progress to a panel of Alistair Group management. At the end of the session interns will be expected to present findings to the Alistair Group board.

    Alistair Group will provide international flights, local transport and accommodation and a weekly stipend. We will also ensure that interns are able to experience Tanzania’s wildlife by hosting a safari over the summer period. Exact length of internships can be flexible depending on schedules, but will ideally range form 8-12 weeks.

    Successful interns will be considered for long-term full-time employment with the Alistair Group team. We are happy to provide references from past interns if of interest.

    TO APPLY:

    Send your CV and Cover Letter to recruitment@alistairgroup.com with the subject “MBA Internship.” Application Deadline: 15th March 2018
