Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. We provide quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural training to improve harvests. We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.
We are growing quickly. We currently serve more than 800,000 farm families in Eastern and Southern Africa, with more than 7,500 full-time staff, and we aim to serve 1 million farm families by 2020.
Note there is also a more junior version of this role available here.
As One Acre Fund evolves rapidly into a fully professionalized organization serving upwards of one million farmers, a crucial determinant of our success will be how flexible the organization can respond to new challenges and fill gaps that would otherwise slow growth. We are seeking mid-career / leadership level candidates interested in a role designed to meet this strategic objective. The position is a way for world-class management professionals to make immediate contributions to the highest-priority challenges facing the organization. In turn, the role offers superior professional growth by providing rapid exposure to the full breadth and depth of One Acre Fund’s functional leadership opportunities, preparing candidates for an eventual permanent executive leadership role in the organization.
Concretely speaking, a typical track would involve plugging into a progression of high-priority leadership roles, followed by the opportunity for a permanent posting or further rotations depending on the candidate’s interests:
