CAHF is looking for one or two dynamic, ambitious, and highly curious individuals to join our growing team in the Research & Market Analytics Division.   The Research Division is responsible for shaping and implementing CAHF’s overall research agenda and subsequent research and related activities in alignment with CAHF’s strategic direction and intent.  Researchers become CAHF’s internal content-knowledge experts, and are each responsible for dedicated countries and regions in their work.  At this point in CAHF’s growth, we are looking for Researchers with a particular background in business and financial sector analytics, who can contribute to our work in supporting the development of the affordable housing sector across Africa.

Members of the Research Division must be excellent writers, with strong quantitative and qualitative research skills and verbal communication skills.  We are looking for candidates who can deal with complexity, are happy to multi-task, pay attention to details and to figures, and who can prioritise effectively towards achieving outcomes and impact, above and beyond outputs.  We expect our staff to be entrepreneurial in their approach, to be able to use their own judgement in order to make decisions and solve problems, and to be able to seize opportunities in the context of the overall objectives of their work, promoting access to housing finance across Africa.  We expect a strong sense of intellectual curiosity, an ability to collaborate with team members and CAHF partners, and a flexible approach, given evolving contexts and pressures.  Applicants must have a valid work permit to work full time in South Africa.

Interested applicants should please send a cover letter, their CV and three references to Lisa Lazarus on  by 15 April 2019.

We reserve the right not to make an appointment at this stage if a suitable candidate cannot be found.
