Job Description

Enko Education is looking for a superstar Finance intern to join the Central Office team in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is an opportunity to help develop an innovative and unique model of international schools.
Entreprise:
Increasing access to top universities through excellent, affordable international secondary education for middle class students in Africa.
Africa is the world?s biggest youth reservoir, with plenty of opportunities existing in the world?s best universities and beyond for young Africans. However, young African talents are under-represented in the world?s best universities. In the United States alone, a census by UNESCO reveals 900,000 foreign students, of which only 31,000 originate from sub-Saharan Africa. Similarly, 100,000 students come from India, a country whose population size and GDP per capita are similar to that of the sub-Saharan region. This discrepancy is explained by the inadequacy of traditional secondary education to prepare learners to enroll in globally leading universities.
Enko Education is an Africa-wide fast-growing network of international secondary schools, preparing learners across Africa for admission to the world?s best universities.
Enko Education developed an innovative education model relying on an internationally-recognized curriculum, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). By adopting an asset-light strategy and relying on extensively trained local teachers, Enko Education is able to charge schools fees which are, on average, only a quarter of those charged by other IBDP schools in Africa.
The group opened its first school in September 2014 and now comprises 9 schools, located in Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mozambique and South Africa, and shares the ambition to launch further 30 schools in the next five years. Enko Education is financially supported by international development institutions and funds including Proparco, I&P and Oiko Credit.
Mission:
Enko Education?s objective is to build a network of 50 schools within Sub-Saharan Africa in the next 5 years.
