One Acre Fund Strategy Analyst Jobs in Kenya

One Acre Fund Strategy Analyst Jobs in Kenya



About the Role

  • We are looking for high-achieving professionals to join One Acre Fund’s Internal Consulting Team (ICT).

  • ICT sharpens the organization's strategy and supports other One Acre Fund teams at important junctures where analytical and project management resources could have a meaningful impact.

  • Above all we are looking for professionals who can support teams across the organization on a variety of project types.

    A sample of recent Internal Consulting Team work includes:

  • Shaping One Acre Fund’s expansion strategy - To help the Kenya program hit its ambitious farmer growth targets, an analyst was challenged to develop a rigorous and scalable approach to expansion.

  • The analyst embedded with the Kenya team for 3-6 months to implement the plan with field survey design, analysis, financial modeling, and a risk assessment.

  • This model was then rolled out across all countries’ Field Operations teams, helping OAF achieve its target of reaching one million farmers by 2020.

  • Conducting a Kenya program health check-up - An analyst conducted a “health check-up” of our Kenya program to resolve risks by examining management quality, hiring standards, and team culture and morale.

  • The final prioritized list of takeaways and recommendations helped the Kenya leadership team increase the program’s efficiency and improve staff experience.

  • Coordinating the Country Directors Working Group - Our Country Directors meet periodically in a working group that generates guidance for country programs and shares cross-country knowledge.

  • An ICT analyst sets the working group’s agenda, structures topic discussions, and helps to connect the group to the organization's goals.

  • Connecting farmers to markets in Zambia - An analyst implemented a market access intervention to help provide more impact for farmers in Zambia.

  • The project began with a comprehensive scan of market access interventions trialed by One Acre Fund and other organizations to develop a set of best practices.

  • After selecting a design, the analyst worked with the Zambia team to implement the market access trial for maize and soybeans.

    Responsibilities

  • Analysts contribute to and take increasing responsibility on projects in their roles on ICT, and over time are expected to independently drive their work.

  • In the early days, they can expect to be guided by Project Managers to scope the project requirements and
    determine the work plan, then implement the execution of the project.

  • Per the examples above, their work may range from desk-based research, to systems design and drafting, to engaging directly with partners to collect information or to implement programs.

  • Analysts work on 1-2 projects at a time typically lasting from 4-6 months on average, in addition to supporting internal team projects.

    Career Growth and Development

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

  • You’ll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentorship 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’ll have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.

    Qualifications

  • Across all roles, these are the general qualifications we look for.

    For this role specifically, you will have:

  • 2+ years of experience, particularly experience solving complex, ambiguous problems in a structured way (e.g., management or strategy consultants, business or data analysts, product analysts, project analysts within start-ups)

  • Experience managing relationships with clients to achieve results. Bonus for previous work experience directly serving executive-level leadership

  • Record of entrepreneurship to address / resolve problems in collegiate and professional settings

  • Ability to draw insights from data. Experience with advanced analysis programs, such as STATA or R, is a plus

  • Responsiveness to feedback: we firmly believe that the ability to act on feedback is the fastest way to grow. As a team, we give and expect to receive open and frank feedback, both to our reports and to our managers

  • Bachelor’s degree

  • English fluency required; proficiency in East African languages a plus
