ATI is growing – significantly increasing staffing size to better support regional and business

  • The African Trade Insurance Agency (ATI) is recruiting for key positions that will help strengthen a number of areas in addition to increasing underwriting capacity.
  • The recruitment is part of a broader strategy that will see ATI significantly expand its human resources in the next two years in order to accommodate business growth and regional expansion.
  • Since 2010, staff numbers have almost doubled, signaling the relevance and impact of the multilateral insurer

NAIROBI, 15 June, 2020 – The African Trade Insurance Agency (ATI) announced that it is in the process of recruiting to fill several positions. The recruitment drive is part of a broader strategy aimed at strengthening specific processes such as adherence to Environment, Social & Governance criteria within the company, and accommodating an expanded business portfolio and regional growth.

ATI has become one of the most sought after African development finance institutions (DFIs) as African governments seek innovative risk mitigation solutions to help attract competitive financing that will ultimately help them more efficiently manage debt loads. At the same time, investors and companies that are engaged in trade have increasingly looked to ATI for their flexibility and ground-breaking solutions to help manage the risks associated with their transactions in Africa.

In 2019 alone, ATI insured US$6.4 billion worth of investments and trade across Africa. This represents a 35% increase over the previous year and is part of a larger trend that has seen ATI continue to post record results over the past eight years. ATI also expects to step up its efforts in the coming months to support African governments through the current COVID-19 pandemic, which may lead to additional demands on resources.

To support this expansion, ATI is currently advertising for the following positions:

  • Administrative Assistant (Finance)
  • Credit Analyst
  • Senior Accountant
  • Senior Actuary
  • Senior Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Officer
  • Technical Accountant Assistant

ATI offers a dynamic and multicultural working environment that strives to achieve gender parity and a healthy work-life balance within the institution.

Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. For more information on these and other opportunities that may be posted in the coming months, visit
