Where you will work:

We have a great office in one of Nairobi’s quieter suburbs near the city centre with lots of windows and a very open floor plan. We dress down most of the time, but are always at our best in front of clients.​ We are professional and the management team is very hands on and engaged with the work that is done.

We try very hard not to require more hours that are required of anyone and we strive to work 8.30 to 5.00 pm every day with a one hour lunch break.​ That said, we’re flexible and recognize that we all have lives outside of the office – and we also know that sometimes, especially when deadlines demand it, normal working hours just won’t get the job done.​ When it doesn’t, we act accordingly – and we show our appreciation when people step-up.​ We use our leave days and so will you, for your sanity and ours.

If you think that your that special talent we are be looking for, kindly send us your CV on [email protected] by the 10th August 2009.
