    “Decent work and labour rights in East Africa, phase 1”

    Background

    The programme “Decent work and Labour Rights in East Africa” (hereafter DWLRP) is a 3 year program (2014-17) implemented by youth organisations and trade unions, that are aiming at improving working conditions for workers and increasing and improving job opportunities for youth.

    The overall objective of the program is “The employment conditions in Kenya and Tanzania have improved and youth has access to decent employment in line with existing national and international labour laws and regulations.”

    The program thus aims to address challenges related to employment and to the labour market faced by youth and members of trade unions in Kenya and Tanzania. The partners work towards ensuring that labour rights in Kenya and Tanzania are upheld, especially for the vulnerable and poor with low income and that those with little opportunities in society are empowered and that their conditions and opportunities at the labour market are improved.

    The final recommendations from the review will build on the findings from the Midterm review conducted in April 2016, with additional studies of relevant program documents and reports and a shorter field visit to Mombasa, Kisumu and Dar Es Salaam to view the program progress since the Midterm Review.

    Objective of the review

    The objective of the review is to assess the overall progress of the program results as well as assessing the strategy applied.

    The report will respond to the 5 DAC criteria that are defined below with related questions:

    Program Associate

    Wanted

    Exceptional professional with 2-5 years of work experience to serve in a position that combines both field and management experience.

    Job Location

    Rural Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, or Nigeria.

    Duration

    Minimum 2 years commitment, full-time job.

    Job Description

    One Acre Fund is growing quickly, and we plan to at least quadruple our farmer impact in the next five years. Program Associates play a major role in driving that growth and ensuring that this growth is stable and systematic – while also adding major innovations and improvements to our program quality.

    This offers Program Associates a strong career opportunity: the ability to learn from a successful field operation, contribute to aggressive growth, and also make improvements to our program.

    We are currently seeking Program Associates for a variety of teams within One Acre Fund, including:

    Operations: Our country operation teams face a classic leadership and management challenge:

    how to keep a large country operation growing at 40-75% per year while also making significant improvements to our operating model.

    Program Associates first learn from our organization’s deep knowledge on 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. They start as generalists, with overall responsibility for executing our 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.

    Innovations: Our Innovations teams discover new ideas for our programs and conduct dozens of trials to test these ideas. As an organization, we constantly seek to learn and improve, and our Innovations teams lead the way.

    Product Innovations staff improve our 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, our 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 we are currently one of the largest sellers of solar lights in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Scale Innovations staff seek to improve our 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 our program with the goal of improving our 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 our 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.
  • 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.

    Qualifications

  • We 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. We are looking for passionate professionals who combine strong leadership skills with good humor, patience, and a humble approach to service to join our 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. French required for Burundi placement.
  • Other notable and useful languages are Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Chichewa, Amharic.
  • Ability to cook/laugh – desirable.

    Preferred Start Date

    Flexible

    Compensation

    Starts modest. However, this is a career-track role with fast raises for performance, paying a meaningful salary for long-term placement in developing nations.

    Benefits

    Health insurance, immunizations, flight, room and board.

    Sponsor International Candidates

    Yes
