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. Job Description We are looking for someone to reflect the voice of and to execute on behalf of the Executive Director.

Currently, we are planning for the Office of the CEO to include 1-2 analysts, 1-2 managers, and a director. We are excited about the possibility for this expansion to support professional development opportunities, team support, and an ability to specialize.

We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers increase profits by 50 percent on the activities we support. We are growing quickly. We serve more than 950,000 farm families in Eastern and Southern Africa, with more than 7,500 full-time staff, and we aim to serve 1,250,000 farm families in 2020.

This offers Program Associates a powerful career opportunity: learn from a successful field operation, contribute to aggressive growth, and make improvements to our program. We are looking for Program Associates for a variety of teams within One Acre Fund, including: Operations: Our country operation teams face the classic management challenge: how to keep a large country operation growing at 30-60% per year while also making improvements to our operating model. Program Associates learn from our organization’s deep knowledge of scaling rural field programs; then, they are challenged to find new ways to stretch, grow faster, and increase our quality of service. Field operations staff focus on farmer-facing services. Staff help to develop and manage the performance of 500-3,000 field staff.

Daily, all roles involve a mix of activities: Understanding and solving problems: observing field operations, meeting with leaders of our field staff , running surveys, conducting desk research, analyzing performance indicators, etc. Then creating simple and lasting solutions to complex problems. Planning and executing large projects: identifying clear goals, creating project calendars, designing workflows, creating field tools and talking points, designing incentive systems, building buy-in across hundreds of staff, following up and monitoring project execution in the field, etc. Building teams: hiring staff using One Acre Fund’s unique “experiential hiring” system, mentoring deputies, and steadily handing off responsibility to your team as you build it.

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. Job Description 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: First 12-24 months: Rotate between several ~6-month long management posts Subsequently: Permanently fill a role of particular interest for the candidate and priority for the organization Program Rotation Managers/Directors will work closely with One Acre Fund’s leadership (especially the head of the internal consulting team) to collaboratively identify, prioritize, select, and scope rotations. Generally, we will aim to do this with a fair amount of flexibility according to organizational needs and the staffer’s goals. For example, rotations may be extended or truncated, or a rotational candidate may specialize within certain teams. Examples of possible rotations include: Nigeria Country Director: Lead the promising Nigeria pilot into a phase of consolidation and growth and play a key role in shaping the future of the program in this high potential market. This person would also hire and mentor new staff to take on leadership roles in the coming years; set up systems and controls that can support rapid growth in the future; and ensure critical program metrics like adoption, impact, and repayment remain strong year on year despite steady growth and changing market dynamics. New department standup: Rotation Managers can be tasked with developing new capacities for One Acre Fund, like standing up a new Global Field Operations team or organizing a global approach to a new impact stream like agroforestry. Program expansion: Lead a new program expansion, i.e. a new country or a new region, conducting initial pilot operations, recruitment, marketing, and setting up systems. Alternatively, launch a new business model or product offering in an existing market, like setting up an agro dealer operation. Department leadership: Shore up a mission-critical department during a period when it would benefit from enhanced strategic leadership. By definition, this could include many One Acre Fund departments, but for illustrative examples consider our high-priority initiatives within Logistics and Field Operations. We see the Program Rotation Manager/Director position as an opportunity to bolster One Acre Fund’s ranks of seasoned executives; staff who will be positioned to take on critical positions in the organization. Selected candidates will confront the full gamut of leadership challenges of a rapidly scaling social enterprise while receiving intensive professional development support from one of the organization’s senior leaders. Career Growth and Development A Program Rotation Manager will receive: An assigned mentor from One Acre Fund’s senior leadership who remains consistent from rotation to rotation in order to provide longer-term career growth and anchoring in the organization Projects that cut across geography and business units for a truly comprehensive work experience Challenging work assignments that target both critical organizational projects and your own leadership development goals We have a strong organizational culture of constant learning and growth—put simply, we continually invest in developing our people. You’ll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentorship and training programs, and regular feedback on your performance. We hold career reviews every six months and set aside time to discuss your aspirations and career goals. You’ll have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career. Qualifications We are seeking multiple exceptional professionals with 5+ years of relevant work experience and a demonstrated passion for our mission. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply: At a minimum, a Bachelor’s degree is required for this position with strong demonstrated previous work experience. Functional flexibility – an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to hit the ground running and start adding value quickly upon taking up a new rotational role Geographic flexibility – at least in the first 12-18 months, the ability to relocate will be important as One Acre Fund has high-priority work across eight countries in sub-Saharan Africa. This includes willingness to live outside capital cities, close to our customers, as this is where initial rotations will be based. Demonstrated leadership experiences, enthusiasm for learning, and openness to feedback Track record of producing concrete business outcome at scale Experience managing large, cross-functional teams, especially sales, operational, and field teams Exceptional analytical skills, able to work with quantitative information, exercise judgment and make decisions in a context of uncertainty, and use data effectively to drive strategy Ability to build teams and collaborate with colleagues from diverse backgrounds Language: English required, French a plus in Rwanda and Burundi

A rotation with Field Operations could include managing an entire season’s worth of training materials for 100,000+ farmers, designing incentives to ensure high repayment, or serving as a liaison to our crop health teams which monitor in-field agricultural problems for our farmers. Business Operations: The objective of our Operations departments is to ensure that we are able to deliver on all of our promises to our clients. Operations encompass mission-critical systems like transaction tracking, client data management, print, procurement, and investigations. A rotation with Business Operations could include running bulk SMS service for 100,000+ farmers, creating a new customer service line and systems to support it, or ensuring that we can process farmer insurance claims fairly and rapidly. Logistics: The primary responsibility of our Logistics team is to ensure that we deliver life-changing inputs and materials to farmers on time and at high quality. A rotation with Logistics would likely include managing a season’s worth of deliveries to thousands of farmers, including planning, troubleshooting, procurement of trucks, liaising with warehouses, etc. Program Innovations: The Scale Innovations team aims to deepen One Acre Fund’s impact on every community we serve by increasing the percent of households who join our program, and by developing innovations that help our field staff serve farmers better. Example projects with the Scale Innovations team include running trials related to using tablet computers in field operations, a “junior OAF member” marketing trial, or re-configuring the role of farmer group leaders in our operations. Program Rotation Associates will work together with the organisation to determine their country or countries of operation, individual rotations, and then their final full-time role. We see the Program Rotation Associate role as an opportunity to develop future leaders in international development while meeting some of One Acre Fund’s most critical field-facing needs. Part of our commitment to this role is offering high-quality professional development and feedback opportunities as our Associates make their way through the various rotations.
