Job Description


Africa Foresight Group (AFG) is a fast-growing tech venture that operates across the continent to build African companies into global champions through freelancing services. Our innovative platform, Peralta, connects top consulting talent from Africa and the world with companies looking to scale and professionalize.

You will help continue our business success by delivering extraordinary people satisfaction and become the engine of innovating our culture in a 100% fully remote work environment with team members in different countries. You must be able to think strategically, execute tactfully, demonstrate strong judgement, and handle the most complex and sensitive issues.
