Working With TMEA

With an annual expenditure of around US$100 million, TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) is one of the leading aid-for-trade facilities in the world. TMEA has its headquarters in Nairobi, with vibrant and successful operations in EAC – Arusha, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. The first phase of TMEA delivered exceptional results which directly contributed to substantial gains in East Africa’s trade and regional economic integration contributing to reduced transit times, improved border efficiency, and reduced barriers to trade.

TMEA is aiming to deliver even more large-scale impact to maximise the potential benefits of aid-for-trade interventions which lead to sustainable and inclusive prosperity through job creation, poverty reduction and enhanced economic welfare.

TradeMark East Africa is committed to ensuring organisational excellence through recruiting and retaining a multi-skilled, versatile, high-performing and mobile workforce to fulfil the organisation’s complex and interrelated mandates, in an efficient and cost-effective manner. TMEA is highly committed to employee safeguarding and will strive to create a conducive working environment that is free from bullying and harassment, and one that promotes employee development, safety and wellness, and positive employee/management relations.

TMEA is an equal opportunities employer. TMEA ensures diversity of staff and potential staff regardless of their gender, race, colour, ethnicity, disability, marital status, age, religion, political opinion, physical and mental health status, pregnancy status, social status, or sexual orientation.
