Lumkani is a social enterprise that seeks to address the challenge of shack/slum fires in urban informal settlements in South Africa and across the globe. Lumkani aims to create social impact in two ways. Firstly by increasing the safety and security of people living in informal settlements with technology-based early-warning systems, and secondly with affordable relevant financial services products, such as our Lumkani short time fire insurance for informal homes.

As Lumkani expands across South Africa, they’re after a skilled individual to market their early-warning systems to direct consumers living in some of the country’s most impoverished slums. You’ll be tasked with creating the messaging and marketing around their tech-based detectors while ensuring the target market understands how they can help prevent the rapid spread of fire.
Drawing on your relevant degree and professional experience in a marketing role, you’ll devise effective strategies for marketing to communities in informal urban settlements. This will require you to gain an understanding of the challenges and human experience of fires in slum housing areas and how Lumkani’s detectors are part of the solution.
They’re after someone who can communicate and work with people from diverse backgrounds while being proficient in content management systems. You’ll thrive in a collaborative environment that requires constant interaction with teammates while being passionate about working with an innovative startup that’s transforming the lives of others.
