is a jobs board, which aims to enhance the visibility of jobs, increase academic mobility within Africa and support global recruitment for African Higher Education institutions.

Launching in 2020 our African job board will be the first website for the region serving academic vacancies, to include; academic and non-academic jobs at Universities and Higher Education institutions across Africa, PhD opportunities, careers advice and country profiles.

The website will increase the visibility of Higher Education jobs in Africa, supporting the aspirations of government and Higher Education institutions to retain academic talent within Africa and promote academic mobility between educational institutions across Africa.

The African jobs board initiative is a collaboration between the following organisations:
