Hello from Illovo, South Africa

Although our office is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, we have representatives in Cairo, Johannesburg and Cape Town. We are proud to work with around 400 universities and learning institutions in the region. We also hold key partnerships with SANLiC, BLC, NALICO, ZALICO, MALICO, LELICO and ZULC, CARLIGH, CEARL, COTUL, KLISC and the Emerald Knowledge Ambassadors.

What we love about our area

The picturesque landscapes and breath-taking views throughout Africa are eclipsed only by the warmth and hospitability of the people we encounter. The customers and people we work with are pacey, progressive and always keep us on our toes. Although we have business throughout SSA, there are still plenty of new adventures and avenues waiting to be discovered and we look forward to each moment.

What’s our ‘area’ famous for

The African continent has a rich past that includes tribal, colonial and political histories with each country having their own origin stories, sometimes chequered but each as unique as the inhabitants of their land. Driving in areas like Mpumalanga, Venda, Eastern and Western Cape, Lilongwe and the outskirts of Gaborone and Harare truly opens your eyes to the natural beauty that surrounds us.

In Sub Saharan Africa, we pride ourselves on our constant engagement with our clients from having visibility at industry events to attending graduation ceremonies and visiting rural institutions. Our products are well known in the region for their quality in the Business and Social Science portfolio. We receive good feedback from customers on Emerald content and how it is important to subscribe to all Emerald’s products. Our business has grown substantially in the past 5 years and we have acquired even more products in different research areas that have made us one of the leading publishers in the region.

Let’s get going


Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have now made the decision to pause the majority of our recruitment. We are still actively hiring for roles that have been identified as critical to the business and will be conducting interviews over the telephone and/or via video conferencing. We will continue to provide any updates on changes to this process.
