AFRINIC seeks to engage a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who will lead a team of dedicated staff, and work with the Board of Directors to execute the strategic plans of the Company. The CEO will be stationed in Ebène, Mauritius.
The African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC) is the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for Africa.  It is responsible for the distribution and management of Internet number resources - IPv4, IPv6 addresses and ASN (Autonomous System Numbers) - for the African region.
AFRINIC’s mission is to provide professional and efficient distribution of Internet number resources to the African Internet community, to support Internet technology usage and infrastructure development across the continent and to strengthen Internet self-governance in Africa by facilitating and encouraging participatory policy development.
AFRINIC operations are overseen by a Board of Directors (BoD) elected by members on a regional or independent representation basis, as defined by Article 11 of its bylaws [http://www.afrinic.net/en/about-us/bylaws?start=10]. Once appointed to the Board, each Director represents and works for the whole region and not their organisations, country or sub-region.
