Private Equity opportunity in SL

Forwarded from an email:

Dear all,

I’m writing to let you know about an opportunity we’re deeply excited about. Rare has just been appointed as sole recruiter for an Analyst role with private equity firm ManoCap, based in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

ManoCap is the biggest private equity investor in Sierra Leone. By the end of the year, its fund will be equivalent to 2% of the country’s GDP. Its backers include Texas Pacific Group, Permira, and Landsdowne Partners. ManoCap’s total funds under management have just increased fivefold and the business plans to roll out in a number of other small emerging economies over the coming years.

Joining ManoCap is a unique opportunity to help some of the poorest countries in the world and to gain blue-chip, private equity experience. The Sierra Leone opportunity is for a year initially but the intention is to find someone who will stay with ManoCap for the long term and who has the potential to become a partner in the fullness of time.

The role requires strong financial modelling skills. The ideal candidate will be patient, flexible, tough, extroverted, excited about doing new things, commercial, independent, poised, confident and passionate about West Africa. He or she is likely to have 1-3 years’ work experience, probably – but not necessarily – in a consulting or banking role.

For full details of the role, please visit our jobsite at And if you have any questions please give me a ring.

Best wishes
