One Acre Fund is a rapidly growing organization; increasing the number of sub-locations, districts, and members we serve in each year. We are seeking a communications officer to help in our media relations work in Zambia and Malawi, and document our impact, progress and growth through photos, interviews, and reports. We are seeking an experienced individual to assist our communications team in building media relations with journalists in Zambia, lead efforts towards mitigating reputation risks, sharing the stories of our farmers and hosting guests out in the field. This role will report to the Africa communications Associate in Kenya, and work closely with him to execute our Zambia media strategy and produce written and visual content. This position requires strong written and oral communication skills, as well as strong inter-personal skills and a willingness to learn a variety of story-telling techniques. Experience in media is desired, but is not required (although if a candidate lacks media experience, a genuine interest in mastering media work is required). The successful candidate will also be a clear and confident communicator, comfortable in interviewing farmers, staff, and large groups on a wide array of topics, and comfortable photographing clients and staff on a regular basis. The role also requires excellent time-keeping and organizational skills and the ability to coordinate schedules and logistics for guests of the organization, as well as logistics for trips to visit all of the districts in Zambia where One Acre Fund operates. This position will be working under remote management the majority of the time, so a successful candidate will be someone who excels in working independently, is self-motivated to complete tasks, communicates proactively with their supervisor, and who thrives in a structured work planning environment.
