One Acre Fund Analyst - Office of the CEO Jobs in Kenya and Tanzania and Uganda and Ethiopia

One Acre Fund Analyst - Office of the CEO Jobs in Kenya and Tanzania and Uganda and Ethiopia

  • We are looking for someone to reflect the voice of and to execute on behalf of the Executive Director.

  • As One Acre Fund grows, our Executive Director is focused on an increasingly diverse set of priorities, from communicating with external partners to marshaling resources for new internal projects.

  • You would work very closely with him on those priorities to help move forward One Acre Fund’s overall strategy. The role has three main parts:

  • Executive-Level, Strategic Communications We believe well-crafted communication of our strategy is essential to One Acre Fund’s success. You will reflect the voice of our Executive Director in communications with the most important influencers in the sector and internal audiences.

    Examples include:

  • Work with our Executive Director to write the concept note for a new strategic initiative to share with important donors.

  • Draft an annual strategy letter to set vision and guidance for internal staff.

  • One-off, Fast Analyses and Tasks These are analyses and tasks of one week or shorter duration, typically exploring a new strategic direction.

    For example:

  • Write a memo summarizing the market opportunities for sorghum and millet in East Africa.

  • Recommend a methodology to use Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) to make fair impact comparisons across countries of differing wealth.

  • One Acre Fund-wide Initiatives As we become more complex, there are an increasing number of projects that do not fall cleanly into an existing department. You will move forward essential projects across multiple departments.

    For example:

  • Build an organization-wide initiative to increase the number of job candidates referred by our staff – to satisfy the hiring needs of a fast-growing organization.

  • Currently, we are planning for the Office of the CEO to include 1-2 analysts, 1-2 managers, and a director.

  • We are excited about the possibility
    for this expansion to support professional development opportunities, team support, and an ability to specialize.

    Career Growth and Development

  • You may report to a Program Manager (in larger operations) or the Country Director (in our smallest program countries).

  • We have a culture of constant learning and we invest in developing our people.

  • You’ll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentors and training programs, and regular feedback on your performance.

  • We hold career reviews every six months, and set aside time to discuss your aspirations and career goals.

  • You can help shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.


  • We are looking for professionals with 2 or more years of work experience. This is a career-track role, with a two-year minimum.

    Candidates who fit the following criteria are encouraged to apply:

  • Exceptional written communicator. You can engage a range of audiences, including internal staff, external partners, and organizational leadership.

  • Research ability. You have experience conducting powerful secondary research.

  • Strong work experiences, such as consulting (or similar skill set).

  • Professional/technical skills, including high proficiency with Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

  • Language English required.
