Program Director - Digital JobsShortlist
Welcome to Shortlist! We’re building a better way to hire, combining the best of tech, data, and human touch to provide executive search and talent technology services across Africa, India, and 20+ countries globally. We have two primary business lines: We offer executive search services to help clients find and hire senior managers and C-suite executives, and an innovative tech-based "Talent Drive" offer to power large-scale recruitment campaigns (campus hiring, internship programs, etc.) for volume hiring, using our in-house recruitment tech platform. Shortlist launched in 2015 in India and 2016 in Kenya, and to date, we have worked with 700+ companies, engaged with over 1,500,000+ professionals, and made 3,000+ placements.
We believe in the power of great teams to change the world, and have a significant focus on working with employers across the social impact and philanthropic sector, including dozens of leading social enterprises, NGOs, and foundations. This emerges from the founding team’s longstanding careers in social enterprise and impact investing, and is embodied in our founding and unwavering mission to “unlock professional potential.” We are also a values-driven culture, which you can read more about here, here, and here.
Challenge Fund for Youth Employment
We are growing quickly, and we’re now looking for exceptional leaders to grow our Talent Drives team, to be based in Nairobi, Kenya. We are currently seeking a Program Director to lead one of our programs that would create thousands of cloud-based jobs and employment infrastructure for marginalized youth in Africa. This youth employment initiative would involve Shortlist sourcing, screening, and placing thousands of candidates into data labeling, digital customer service, and other digital-first jobs across Sub-Saharan Africa, working with international governments, foundations, and corporations who have the mandate to support job creation. These jobs will require basic digital literacy skills and may be able to be done remotely on a computer (e.g. data labeling jobs)
