What We Look For

Just as we base our mission and goals on our core values, we believe it is essential to staff our operations with people who share and embody those values.


It is the essence of our mission. Without it, we would not have come this far. Without it, we cannot fulfil our mission.

Creative Collaboration

We believe that excellence starts with smart people...but truly great achievement requires extraordinary teams. We're looking for people who work well together, who are not satisfied with the status quo, who dare to imagine the possibilities and see things differently. People who believe they can change the world - and are willing to work with others to do so.

Life-Long Learning

We share a genuine curiosity and desire to learn. We seek to stretch ourselves, learn from others, and share our knowledge - both within and beyond our community.


We believe the best teams are made of people who have a good sense of humour, who have far-reaching interests and who can enjoy every step of our journey - as we build Ashesi's foundation and create a dynamic, creative environment in which students can explore and learn. We value a high level of enthusiasm, energy and drive in members of the Ashesi team.

The Ashesi Way

Be a part of a team that prides itself on having a culture that is so unique that every member of the community feels a sense of pride being part of the team.

What is Ashesi’s Culture? What decisions do we make, and how do we act every day? How will the Ashesi Community help transform Africa?

Our answer --a set of guidelines for decision making and behaviour-- is grounded in Ashesi’s founding principles.  We call it The Ashesi Way, and it is based on the fundamental premise that our daily actions will make all the difference in reaching the end that we seek -- that the means determine the quality of the end.
