Job Description

We are Apata Insights, a growing research organisation based out of our office in Kampala, Uganda. Our vision is bold: to become the premier provider of high quality research services in Africa. We work in a collaborative environment that thrives on innovation and fresh ideas and are driven by our passion to make a difference.

Do you get energised by tackling new challenges and shaping the future? Are you excited about navigating ambiguity to chart a path forward?

You'll have the opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders, contribute to cutting-edge research, and help us win new clients.
This role also offers the opportunity to mentor and lead a growing team. If you have a knack for fostering a collaborative environment and sharing your expertise, you'll find ample space to develop your leadership skills.
