Careers at the Mastercard Foundation

At the Mastercard Foundation, we believe the challenge of youth unemployment in Africa cannot be solved by any one organization. By continuously working together with governments, the private sector, other funders, and young people, our goal is to challenge ourselves and others to innovate, explore, and test new ideas. Most importantly, we are driven to achieve sustainable, positive change. The time is right for the Foundation to focus on young people and the future of work in Africa.

As the Foundation builds its presence in Africa, it will also need to attract, retain and develop top talent, particularly from the continent. The Foundation has bold goals and it is imperative that it has the people and talent to achieve them.

The Foundation values innovative and fresh thinking as it strives to become a global thought leader. Its work is achieved by a strategic, nimble, and highly entrepreneurial team with a proactive and results-oriented approach to its philanthropic activities. The organization’s culture is shaped by people who are driven and passionate about the Foundation’s mission. We are looking for individuals who are interested in being part of a culture of excellence, collaboration, and respect.

The Mastercard Foundation values the unique skills and experiences each individual brings to their work and are committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive and accessible environment for everyone. We are an equal opportunity employer.
