We are seeking to hire an Assistant Director for Risk Regulation. S/he will be housed within the Risk Management and Transfer pillar reporting directly to the Director, Risk; and will lead an Assistant Manager (and independent Consultants as required) who will assist with the inception and implementation of projects designed to drive systemic change in the market for insurance and other risk management instruments.

The Assistant Director will contribute to the implementation of the overall Risk pillar strategy by leading the development and implementation of programmes that work to improve the enabling environment for risk markets in Africa. This involves leading research, analysis and thinking around ecosystem development. Building on a strong foundation of understanding, the Assistant Director will conceptualise and lead a portfolio of impactful intervention projects – e.g. working with insurance sector regulators to develop new policy and regulatory frameworks. The role also includes conceptualising and implementing evidence-based advocacy campaigns, combining data gathering and analysis with sophisticated communication techniques to address the big issues affecting risk management and transfer in African markets.
