As an organization, we constantly seek to impact more farmers, and we are currently launching our Nigeria program. This role is part of a small team based in rural Niger State, Nigeria that strives to put an end to poverty by transforming the lives of Nigerian farmers. The team's purpose is to launch One Acre Fund's model in Nigeria, starting small but scaling up rapidly within the next few years.
The Nigeria Program Associate will report to the New Country Expansion Trial Lead. They will support the launch of our model near Minna, Nigeria. More specifically, the Nigeria Program Associate will support all aspects of the launch of our field operations, provide constant insights for revisions of the products and services offered, and build and manage the local field teams. If successful, the program will scale to thousands of households and the Program Associate will play a key role in the scale-up process.
On a day-to-day basis, the Nigeria Program Associate will cover a mix of activities:
One Acre Fund has deep operational experience running rural field programs at a scale of 1,000+ full-time staff per country. Program Associates benefit from this past experience, quickly building their skill-set through immersion in our operating environment. At the same time, the main role of Program Associates is to accelerate growth and to constantly stretch and improve our operations. This presents an excellent career opportunity to both learn from One Acre Fund’s accumulated experience and constantly improve and enable 40%+ program growth per year.
One Acre Fund invests in building management and leadership skills. Your manager and a global support team will commit significant time in your career development. We provide constant, actionable feedback delivered through mentorship and through regular management consulting-style career reviews.
