Expresso is a dynamic and complex international telecommunications service provider: we operate in countries with their own regulatory and legal framework.
The Legal & compliance team plays a critical role in ensuring we comply with all of the laws and regulations, which in turn ensures that we keep our telecommunication licences.
To be an innovative and responsive partner to our customers, we must be exceptional in understanding, managing and navigating the compliance requirements of the countries in which we operate. Our Legal & compliance team is at the heart of this approach.
The Legal & compliance team is also the driving force behind the ethics of our organisation. Our aim is to promote ethical behaviour so that we are known in our markets as a company that does business with honesty and integrity.
You should have a relentless willingness to learn, be a very good communicator and be a team player. Above all you must represent Expresso’s core values – responsive, transparent, inclusive, evolving and connecting.
One of our most valuable assets is our reputation. If customers, investors, employees and other stakeholders do not trust us, we cannot achieve our aim of being a top brand in Africa.
The Corporate Affairs function is the custodian of Expresso’s reputation. This team is responsible for ensuring we communicate clearly, truthfully and consistently across our markets and stakeholders. They manage the relationships with the media, investors, employees, governments and regulators. It is also responsible for Expresso’s brand and corporate social responsibility activities.
No day is ever the same. You could be writing a speech for the CEO, promoting sponsorship programmes, working on a communication for an acquisition, drafting a policy on ethical matters, or responding to an unexpected event.
This is an exciting and demanding role that requires exceptional communication skills to present complex issues clearly and concisely, and often to very strict deadlines. It requires you to be highly organised, focused and disciplined.
