Vacancy: National Coordinator in Rwanda für Maxpert/Article26 (m/w/d)

Maxpert sucht ab sofort für die Article26-Initiative einen Mitarbeiter vor Ort in Rwanda, der koordiniert, Trainings und Veranstaltungen organisiert und Kommunikation verbessert.

Maxpert GmbH is an accredited training house in Germany, which offers certified trainings for digital transformation such as Scrum, Design Thinking or Lean Startup, Project Management with Prince2 as well as ITIL trainings of IT service management. Many of the training courses are available as eLearnings. We have supported companies such as KPMG and SAP as well as German universities in organizational change, which has enabled us to establish ourselves as a market leader in Germany. (

About Article26:

Under Maxpert’s non-profit initiative Article26 – we do contribute to skills development in project and IT service management as well as agile methods which are required for Africa’s digital transformation.

Our initiative has its heart in Article 26 – that is why we called it „Article26” which is also the 26th Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (adopted by the United Nations): ’Everyone has the right to education [...]’.

Article26 shares Maxpert’s network and accumulated knowledge in further education. Digital learnings and aligned internationally recognized certificates are hardly affordable. Therefore, we are providing free access to skills development to selected talents via partner organizations. Amongst others, we work in Rwanda and support the approach of Train-the-Trainer (ToT). (
