REA Vipingo wishes to recruit a Farm Engineer to be resident on one of its three Tanzania estates.

The estate is situated on the main road just to the south of Tanga and is a well established unit with its own workshops, stores, labour camps, water supply and other infrastructure.

The Farm Engineer is responsible for the maintenance and servicing of all estate equipment, including sisal processing machinery, tractors, caterpillar equipment and vehicles as well as housing, water supply and other infrastructure.

  • Candidates should ideally have a recognized technical or engineering qualification in agricultural or mechanical engineering, and should have not less than five years management experience in an agricultural or general mechanical engineering environment.
  • The ability to speak Kiswahili is a distinct advantage.
  • This is an excellent opportunity within an expanding and ambitious multinational group for a motivated and capable individual.
