Created in 2016, Education Sub Saharan Africa is advocating and actively working for more systematic cooperation and investment in the Tertiary Education space. Our aim is to join up, inform, inspire and increase impact for everyone investing in education in sub-Saharan Africa. With a billion more people on the continent within a generation, quality Tertiary Education will be a main driver of socio-economic transformation, if young people can find or create work and if their education allows them to do so.

New Trustees will share the motivation and values of ESSA; be willing to make a strategic contribution as a learning partner to a board and will bring a strong impact focus.

Along with a steadfast commitment to improving educational outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa, you will bring a track record of senior leadership and proven achievement in one of the following areas; education policy, business or technology.

Ideally candidates will have experience operating at CEO, CFO, CTO or Vice-Chancellor level.

Education Sub Saharan Africa is committed to achieving greater diversity in its board, and welcomes applications regardless of sex, gender, race, age, sexuality, belief or disability.
