Campus Operations Manager Job in Kenya

Nova Academies

Campus Operations Manager
Nova Academies is a pan - African school network that prepares the next generation of leaders and innovators through world - class teaching methods with an emphasis on 21st century skills. 

We currently have two schools in Johannesburg, South Africa, and one in Nairobi, Kenya. 

Our venture is structured as a social enterprise to enable us to attract the investment that will be needed to launch 100 schools and reach tens of thousands of students in the next decade.

Africa has the fastest-growing youth population in the world and a rapidly expanding middle class, but its education systems are not ready to unleash what could be the transformative generation of talent that permanently changes the face of the continent. 

We aspire to be among the first to show at scale that this is possible.
Our team culture is designed to reinforce our vision: 
  • We model the growth mindset we want our students to embody: you are challenged every day and, as a result, you grow more than at any other point in your life. 
  • We pursue excellence in every detail and do whatever it takes to produce great work quickly. 
  • We are radically open: we share tough messages and our own vulnerabilities because doing so helps us grow. 
  • We put our students before our team, and our team before ourselves. 
  • We bring infectious energy, enthusiasm and fun to everything we do because joy fuels the hardest work and learning.
