Job Position: Tanzania Impact Ventures Program Associate
Job Opportunities At One Acre Fund March 2020. We are seeking an exceptional candidate with 5+ years of consulting, project management or entrepreneurial experience and a demonstrated passion for poverty alleviation.
About 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.
One Acre Fund is developing new business units to push innovation in retail, finance and marketing in rural communities. One of these units is the Seed Adoption Campaign, which aims to build access and demand for improved seed across Tanzania.
Improved seed can generate significant increases in yield and farm productivity, with minimal behaviour change required. However, adoption of improved seed is lower than 25% in many Sub-Saharan countries. Increasing adoption of improved seed in Tanzania represents millions of dollars of potential impact for smallholder farmers. Seed-related innovations are one of the organisation’s highest priority areas for generating impact for farmers and the Seed Adoption Campaign will continue to grow rapidly in both work scope and team size, serving over 70,000 farmers in the 2019-20 farming season. The goal for most innovations like this is to scale them to reach huge populations of smallholder farmers, generating as much impact as possible.
We are seeking exceptional individuals to join this team. Strong candidates would be managing region-wide and nationwide ventures to innovate within and expand the Seed Adoption Campaign, supporting farmers in new markets.
