About the Project Manager
The Project Manager is charged with project managing the build out and renovation of Andela Kenya’s new 2.72 acre headquarters and the movement of all people and equipment at its current facility to the new space. The Project Manager will be responsible for liaising with an architect/designer, keeping costs under budget, sticking to tight deadlines, managing vendors, making purchases, planning telecommunications, etc. The new headquarters will include both living quarters and working space. Currently, Andela Kenya’s staff of 80 is based in the Upper Hill Estate, on a campus affectionately named “The Dojo.” The new facility, with a capacity of 1000, is located in the Garden Estate. Successful management of this project would require the Project Manager to meet all deadlines and keep all costs under budget while building Andela’s future home in Kenya.
The Project Manager would be part of the Operations team and report directly to the Andela Kenya Country Director. This is a temporary position that would last through the length of this specific project.

We are looking for a detail-oriented, experienced Project Manager, who is passionate about Andela’s mission. The right candidate will have experience with project management tools, managing vendors, similar-scale build-outs, and creating and following budgets. Candidates with existing connections in the Nairobi area are a plus. The Project Manager we are looking for will be decisive, self motivated, and have a positive attitude.
