African Leadership University (ALU) is launching a pan-African School of Wildlife Conservation to develop top African talent for conservation. We are now looking for an experienced practitioner in the field of conservation to lead this effort as the inaugural Executive Director of the ALU School of Wildlife Conservation.
The Executive Director will be the pioneering CEO of the School, responsible for driving the school from foundational stages into a dynamic, pan-African institution. The ideal candidate is excited about developing top African leaders to understand not only the science but also the ‘business’ of conservation (how to manage budgets, operations, how to lead teams, how to create viable business models for national parks, ecotourism, etc). The ED will also be the face of the school, leading partnerships with government, multi-lateral agencies, and African private players in conservation. Finally, and most importantly, they are extremely passionate about conservation and see its enormous potential for economic development for Africa.
