The Programme for African Leadership (PfAL) is a part of the Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa (FLCA) and aims to bring together bright and ambitious African post-graduate students at LSE, to support their development into value-driven and effective leaders through a structured set of activities and events, and to create an alumni network whose members are committed to having a direct and positive impact on the lives of people in their communities, countries and continent. The FLCA promotes independent academic research and teaching; open and issue-oriented debate; and evidence-based policy making across the LSE. FLCA accomplishes this by connecting different social science disciplines and by working in partnership with Africa bringing African voices to the global debate.
FLCA is looking for an experienced, motivated, organised and personable manager for PfAL who will be responsible for all aspects of the programme and student experience. The post holder is expected to manage the recruitment and admission of students into the programme each year, design and tailor the yearly programme to achieve learning objectives and outcomes. The post holder will also take the lead on the strategic development of the programme as it continues to grow.
Candidates should have excellent communication skills, have experience with teaching and/or leadership development; programme management; have lived and worked in Africa; and have the proven ability to facilitate seminars, workshops and debates.
We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.
