Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Rwanda is one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in the world--with over 400% growth over the last five years.

Our Experteer will lead our company's business development with international hotel and restaurant brands in Rwanda and beyond.

There's a massive gap to connect local products to these international brands--particularly in cold chain products, which include local fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, and dairy. As first hotel distributor in Rwanda with ISO22000 certification, we're leading the way to make supply chains that serve both ends of the economic spectrum.

 

DELIVERABLES

We're looking for brand development, building a client management team at an international level, and ultimately building growing new client relationships.

NEEDED SKILLS:

  • Advertising
  • Brand Strategy
  • Sales
  • Strategic Marketing
  • User Research

NEEDED LANGUAGES:

  • English

ADDITIONAL USEFUL LANGUAGES:

  • French
  • Kinyarwanda
  • Swahili

We Provide These Local Benefits


LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

Our Experteer will be on the cutting edge of high growth start-up culture in a frontier market. We're innovating in a region with little infrastructure, meaning innovation is massive.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

We've been in Rwanda for a long time and can connect the Experteer to the entrepreneurship, creative, and innovation communities here. Also, we can facilitate weekend trips to explore the country.
