Job Description:

Are you a strong relationship builder that can guide and connect highly talented young tech professionals as they navigate their growth? Does the prospect of making impactful connections and building communities excite you? Are you passionate about technology and personal development? Would you describe yourself as a highly structured individual with fast learning abilities?

We are looking for an individual with the experience and confidence to enable our young tech talent to find their meaning and grow their careers, and to negotiate and manage relationships with employer partners around the world on behalf of our talent. We are looking for someone who enjoys providing valuable advice and helping others thrive in their professional journeys with thoughtfulness and empathy.


By 2035, Africa will have the largest workforce in the world and will need to catalyze transformation by empowering its largest untapped resource – its youth. The African Leadership Group is an ecosystem of institutions with a shared vision to harness Africa’s abundant human capital and transform the continent and the world by selecting, developing, and connecting 2 million ethical and entrepreneurial leaders by 2030. Founded by Fred Swaniker, a 2019 TIME 100 Most Influential People honoree, the AL Group’s bold and innovative approach to leadership development has earned it recognition by Fast Company as the #1 Most Innovative Company in Africa and #39 on its list of the “50 Most Innovative Companies in the World”, alongside Alibaba (#15) and Apple (#17).

ALX and The Room are two brands of the African Leadership Group.

ALX is our training arm, focused on developing skills for the fourth industrial revolution - software engineering, data science, UX design, cyber security, etc. – to ensure that Africa is able to compete effectively as the world undergoes a digital transformation. To cement this, through our legal entity African Leadership International (ALI), we have acquired Silicon Valley-based Holberton Inc. – a project-based, college alternative educating the next generation of software engineers. This acquisition gives us ownership of the advanced technology program that will enable us to provide global organizations access to significant untapped pools of talent that can bridge the growing global shortage of technology talent.

The ROOM is our talent placement arm, a community that our young talent join to access a lifetime of extraordinary opportunities and meaningful relationships. It is also a marketplace platform that connects our highly skilled, rigorously vetted and trained tech talent with global companies, including our own tech solutions business.


As a Tech Talent Recruiter in the ROOM, you will be our young tech talents’ thought partner, guide, connector and greatest cheerleader. By partnering with them to map out their ambitions and connecting them to life-changing opportunities, you will put your efforts and passion into helping them reach their full potential.

In this role, you will be at the core of The Room’s impact. While managing a portfolio of ~200 young tech talent, you will help them access the most exciting and career-propelling opportunities. From employment to mentorship, coaching, and public speaking engagements, your role will be to accelerate our young talent's development journey towards achieving their life’s mission.

The Tech Talent Recruiter role is a dynamic one that will challenge you to exercise a broad set of skills on a daily basis. On one day you might find yourself leading one on one conversations with your talent, providing continuous support and guidance, channeling your inner coach. While on the next day, you will need to show up as a forward thinker and innovator who can easily connect the dots between talent’s aspirations and The Room’s offerings, scouting relevant opportunities, events and resources that would benefit them.

With The ROOM’s talent at the forefront of everything a Tech Talent Recruiter does, the role will also require exceptional employer partner management. You will be responsible for connecting with employers through our talent, conducting negotiations with employers and developing long-term relationships with them. Having a knack for business development and account management is key in your role as a Technical Recruiter.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to display creativity, innovation, thoughtfulness and your customer-centered spirit to ensure we design a highly personalized experience that delights our talents throughout the year. You will also be in charge of developing feedback loops capturing relevant information to continuously improve our talent and employer experience and the quality of service delivered.

This role is a non-people manager role and is an in-person position based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
