The responsibility of the CEO is to work collaboratively with key stakeholders to ensure the organization is meeting its paradigm-shifting goals on higher education in Africa; continually recruit and develop a dynamic, talented team of extraordinary pan-African leaders to do the work; and ensure the financial sustainability of the organization is secured through a mixture of philanthropy and other innovative financing mechanisms. This last area of work is of the greatest significance to the organization as we try and balance our ability to grow with the financial realities of fundraising and other financing.
If these three conditions are met, the ideal candidate will succeed in the role. The CEO reports to the Chair of the Kepler Board.
Kepler has recently made a series of new commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I). This will be taken into considering during the CEO search; and the ideal candidate will enter the role fully committed to fulfilling the organization’s DE&I goals.
