There are clear opportunities in Ghana for UK companies, and we expect these to gain further traction post COVID-19, building on the work of the UK Government’s Digital Service and other agencies. The digital sector continues to grow in Ghana, and is one of the key strategic sectors of focus for the UK-Ghana Business Council. This role will need to build and manage a strong network in order to position the UK as the partner of choice in the education and digital sectors in Ghana, working closely with DFID, FCO, GDS and the British Council to ensure that the UK offer is showcased effectively and results in export wins for UK companies.

  • Lead on the UK in Ghana’s cross government digital efforts, including leading on the UKAID funded Government Digital Service partnership;
  • Develop and deliver a sector plan for digital and education that supports the GoG’s development agendas in both areas, working closely with colleagues in DIT, DFID and the FCO;
