SYSTEMIQ is an organisation driving system change in clean energy, circular material solutions and sustainable land use. By addressing failures in these areas, SYSTEMIQ aims to unlock economic opportunities that benefit business, society and the environment.
We connect the right people, ideas, technologies, and capital to transform economic systems. We do this through five activities:
In order to deliver in these areas, we recruit and develop distinctive and varied individuals who strive to achieve our mission, challenge the status quo and act as change leaders.
Over the last year, SYSTEMIQ has been developing the concept of Sustainable Special Economic Zones (SSEZs), and executing our pilot zone in Lagos, Nigeria. SSEZs represent the next horizon in industrial development; moving beyond “do no harm” principles of export processing zones and low-carbon zones, towards driving the Sustainable Development Goals through positive commercial, social and environmental impact. We do this by: 1) supporting inclusive businesses that have outsized SDG-impact in Nigeria; 2) designing circular infrastructure models with our engineering partners to improve access to utilities and bring down operating costs; 3) executing the zone by attracting tenant operating partners and mobilising investment in zone and tenant-specific infrastructure.
Starting next year, we will be expanding to East Africa and have been asked to replicate our work from Nigeria in both Kenya and Ethiopia. Overall, the ambition is to create replicable models for driving industrialisation that is both economically beneficial and that drives huge social and environmental impact throughout the region.
We are looking for an Associate to be based in Addis Ababa from January 2019 who can help us further execute this vision and series of projects.
We offer the opportunity to benefit from the world-leading networks of our partners and be part of a high-calibre, driven, and fun/friendly team. There is also the possibility to gain experience in project development and venture capital.
