Port Advisor (Trade Mark East Africa)

TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) is an initiative funded by a range of development agencies to promote regional trade and economic integration in East Africa. TMEA works closely with national governments, business and civil society and East Africa Community (EAC) institutions.

It supports East African economic integration by unlocking economic potential through (i) a reduction in transport and related costs along the key corridors in East Africa; (ii) engaging private sector and civil society to positively influence regional integration policies and practices for growth in trade; (iii) supporting partner states to substantially increase the implementation of a comprehensive framework for regional integration; and (iv) supporting EAC institutions to develop a comprehensive framework for regional integration.


TMEA, in liaison with the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite, IGAD and TradeMark Southern Africa (TMSA), is organising a High Level Investment Conference scheduled for 28 and 29 September 2011, where bankable projects and a project pipeline that will deepen regional integration will be presented for financing considerations, under the direction of the Tripartite.

The objectives of this conference will be to agree and endorse at a high level the action plan for the development of the Northern, Central, Djibouti and Lamu Corridors; avail resources to develop a list of indicative projects for infrastructure investments on the Northern, Central, Djibouti and Lamu Corridors; undertake to have a smaller number of near-bankable or bankable projects that will be highlighted for public and private investment; and avail resources for regulatory reform and trade logistics technical assistance projects required to support investment in infrastructure for the Northern and Central Corridor.


We seek to recruit a high calibre, results-oriented and self-driven professional to provide leadership, direction and technical expertise in support of the infrastructure investment conference in the position detailed below.

In addition, s/he will work closely with the TMEA Economic Corridor team in Nairobi, Port Specialists in Dar es Salaam, as well as the TMEA Kenya and Tanzania Country Directors and their respective teams.
