With a mission to enable businesses and their customers to participate in the global economy by providing them fast and affordable cross-border payments, our client is looking to add a highly ambitious, motivated and hardworking Business Development Manager, focusing on Ethiopia and surrounds to their team of international experts. This is a chance for you to join a business really making an impact by realising their vision into reality, enabling a world where emerging and developed markets have seamlessly interconnected cross-border payments.
Their Business Development Manager will be based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and will be reporting into the SVP for Africa. This is an individual contributor role and a key aspect to this role would be to drive the business development function in the markets of focus. The ideal candidate will come with superb knowledge of the payments industry-specific to Ghana and the surrounding region. They will be autonomous, self-motivated, passionate, possess high energy and have a strong business acumen with the mindset of rolling up their sleeves and getting the job done.
The business prides themselves in unlocking opportunities for millions of people and businesses in emerging and developed markets by interconnecting mobile wallet operators, platforms, merchants, money transfer operators, payment service providers and banks to facilitate seamless payments.
Our client plays an integral role in what can be described as a deeply fragmented industry. As a trusted, neutral and interoperable aggregator, they offer key payment solutions to tackle the speed, cost-efficiency and accessibility challenges for emerging markets. Without our client, the partners of a payment transaction would waste time and costly resources developing their connections to multiple systems. Multiple connections would also mean that these actors have to charge higher prices, which could prohibit financial inclusion and the spread of financial services.
