When we founded Enviu in 2004, our belief was the same as it is today: An inclusive economy that serves people and planet. An economy enriching the lives of all people, providing access to basic needs. An economy sustainably utilizing the valuable and limited resources our planet endows. To instigate this economy we build social multinationals that address social and environmental issues, and drive market development. Companies with high impact in the domains of financial inclusion, circular economy, and food security.
Are you an entrepreneurial leader? Do you love building organizations? Do you have excellent communication skills, and a good sense of humor? Does your heart skip a beat for East Africa? Then you are in luck, because we are looking for a Director East Africa, to be located in Nairobi, Kenya.
