TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) is funded by a range of development agencies with the aim of growing prosperity in East Africa through trade. We believe that enhanced trade contributes to economic growth, a reduction in poverty and subsequently increased prosperity. TMEA is now the largest aid-for-trade facility in the world and we have vibrant and successful country programmes in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, and South Sudan.
The first phase of TMEA has delivered exceptional results which have directly contributed to substantial gains in East Africa’s trade and regional integration environment in terms of reduced transit times, improved border efficiency, and reduced barriers to trade. The second phase, which started in mid-2017, aims to deliver even more large-scale impact to maximise the potential benefits of aid-for-trade interventions.
TMEA is seeking to recruit dynamic and visionary individuals with strategic leadership experience, professional networks and regional influence to join TMEA’s Board as Non-Executive Directors. The Board oversees the strategy, policy, and direction of TMEA to facilitate the achievement of its mission and objectives, and strengthen accountability for performance and impact.
TMEA aims to have a diverse board and is therefore seeking individuals with expertise in the following fields:
· Trade and regional integration;
· Transport and infrastructure development;
· Private sector development;
· Finance, audit, and accountancy;
· Human resource management; and/or
· Politics and governance.
