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 trainings 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.
We are seeking an exceptional and results-oriented mid-career professional to lead One Acre Fund’s Strategy & Research unit, better known as our Internal Consulting Team. The team is responsible for sharpening the organization’s strategy and for supporting other One Acre Fund teams when additional analytical resources could have an outsized impact for the organization. (Click here to better understand the roles and responsibilities of more junior Internal Consulting Team members). In the team lead, we are seeking a leader who blends high-quality team performance management skills, with a proven ability to drive strategic initiatives at the organizational level.
This role provides an opportunity for a senior strategic leader to meaningfully help drive the strategy of a $100M and growing social impact organization. Since its inception at One Acre Fund in 2012, the Internal Consulting Team has emerged as a primary nexus through which many organizational initiatives pass. The team takes on a broad range of projects that would be typical to a management consultancy, including high-level strategy and research, internal change management, flexible resourcing for other One Acre Fund teams, and executive communications. The key difference is in the opportunity to deeply embed within a fast-paced organization, influencing decisions and also implementation, as opposed to stopping at recommendations.
Key responsibilities include:
We have a strong culture of constant learning and we 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.
We are seeking exceptional candidates with 8-15+ years of work experience in consulting, strategic, analytical, and entrepreneurial roles. Successful candidates will likely have progressively increasing responsibilities in management consulting, e.g. as an engagement manager or project leader. Prior operational experience in the social impact space is also a plus. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:
Commensurate with experience.
Health insurance, housing, and comprehensive benefits
No; must have existing rights to work in our countries of operation. East Africans are strongly encouraged to apply.
