Programmes Associate

Responsibilities

·         Field operations staff focus on farmer-facing services. They start as generalists, with overall responsibility for executing One Acre’s program in a region. Over time, they can continue to rise as a general leader, possibly growing to manage an entire country’s field operation. Or they may specialize, for example, in the creation and roll-out of staff development training for hundreds or even 1,000+ team members.
·         Support operations staff build the infrastructure required for growth. These teams proactively eliminate barriers to scale in a diverse range of areas – processing millions of farmer payments, communicating to farmers via tens of millions of SMS, hiring hundreds of new staff per year, and physically moving 20,000+ tons of farm inputs to thousands of drop sites. Program Associates also make steady improvements to accelerate growth – for example, setting up mobile money integration for a country.
·         One Acre’s Innovations teams discover new ideas for their programs and conduct dozens of trials to test these ideas. As an organization, One Acre constantly seek to learn and improve, and their Innovations teams lead the way.
·         Product Innovations staff improve their core agricultural products or run new experiments in energy and health products. The ideas they discover may eventually scale to hundreds of thousands of households. Product Innovations staff design trials, execute trials together with thousands of farmers, synthesize trial data, and make constant revisions to the product offering. For example, One Acre Fund’s Product Innovations team is currently testing delivery of live chickens and preparing the product for full-scale rollout. One Acre Fund is also increasingly delving into energy and health, and they are currently one of the largest sellers of solar lights in Sub-Saharan Africa.
·         Scale Innovations staff seek to improve One Acre’s core operating model. By running trials with tens of thousands of farmers, they analyze targeted questions such as: does moving from a group liability loan to an individual liability loan improve repayment and customer satisfaction? Or they might investigate more radical ideas, such as setting up physical One Acre Fund shops to see if there are more efficient ways to deliver high-quality service to farmers. They try variations on their program with the goal of improving scalability, impact, and financial sustainability.
·         On a day-to-day basis, nearly all roles involve a mix of activities:
·         Understanding and solving problems: observing field operations, meeting with leaders of their field staff, running surveys, conducting desk research, analyzing KPIs, 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 and understanding stakeholders, following up and monitoring project execution in the field, etc.
·         Building teams: hiring staff using One Acre Fund’s unique “experiential hiring” system, mentoring key deputies, and steadily handing off responsibility to your team as you build it.
·         Communicating with other teams: working in coordination with One Acre Fund’s other teams on the ground to execute a smooth customer experience in the simplest way possible

Qualifications

·         One Acre Fund are seeking exceptional professionals with 2 to 5+ years of work experience, and a demonstrated long-term passion for international development. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:
·         Strong work experiences. Examples include a demanding professional work experience, or successful entrepreneurial experience, e.g. starting a field program in a developing country, leading a conference, starting a business, solid Volunteer Service Organization accomplishments (VSO, Peace Corps, JICA, etc).
·         Leadership experience at work, or outside of work.
·         Top-performing undergraduate background (include final grade/marks/GPA).
·         Humility. One Acre Fund are looking for passionate professionals who combine strong leadership skills with good humor, patience, and a humble approach to service to join their growing family of leaders.
·         A willingness to commit to living in rural areas of East Africa for at least two years – this is a long-term, career-track role. The ideal candidate will have at least one year demonstrated experience working in the developing world, although this is not a strict requirement.
·         Language: English required in all locations. Other notable and useful languages is Swahili.
