Job Title: SSA Public Affairs Manager (They / She / He)

Location: Lagos

Your Work-life Opportunity

  • Glovo is taking the on-demand and digital economy space by storm and you could be part of it. Our passion is making cities smaller by having anything you want delivered in no-time. SSA is a crucial region for us with high levels of growth, opportunities and innovation.
  • As our work impacts multiple segments of the economy and society, it attracts relevant public interest. Therefore we have decided to create a position of Public Affairs Manager, to be based in Lagos (Nairobi, Accra or Abidjan potentially feasible too) and cover our growth in a significant part of the world.
  • We are looking for someone that thrives in a start-up environment. Someone that gathers and analyses relevant intel, understands public and company priorities, assesses a shifting situation, drafts and implements solutions – both short-term and long-term. The successful candidate will be a member of a team of professionals working in many different areas and dealing with amazing challenges.
  • As a short-term priority you will need to shape our public affairs strategy in Nigeria and Kenya – both at the national and municipal levels, in the many cities in which we are present. Once this is accomplished, we want to provide similar support to Glovo teams in other countries in the region – and travel there when and if the need arises.

Be a Part of a Team Where You will:

  • Manage and lead our policy effort in SSA, developing strategies to keep the market open and to reinforce our non-market strategies.
  • Provide similar support to Comms and Social Impact work Glovo does in the region.
  • Regularly monitor regulations and policies relevant for Glovo and our partners.
  • Track public debates and media coverage impacting Glovo or our ecosystem.
  • Support other areas of Glovo at local, regional and HQ levels including Operations, Legal Marketing or Communications.
  • Design regulatory and legislative proposals in support of our business strategies.
  • Directly engage policymakers, their staff and other stakeholders to explain and defend Glovo’s business model and vision.
  • Draft and execute a third party engagement strategy aimed at developing Glovo’s champions in the communities we serve.
