Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies 1.4 million smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. We provide quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers' homes, and agricultural training to improve harvests. We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers earn a 40% increase in profit on enrolled land after working with One Acre Fund.
To learn more about our work, take a look at our Why Work Here blog for information.
By 2030 our organization will reach 10 million farm families annually. This growth will be fueled by fundraising, and at One Acre Fund, our fundraising relies on industry-leading grant writing. We employ a dedicated 10-person writing squad (within our broader Business Development team) to craft proposals and reports that are clear, powerful, data-driven, and farmer-centric.
We are looking for a proven and passionate senior writer to join our writing squad at the manager level. You will work with One Acre Fund's CEO, both directly and with his immediate support staff, as the lead writer for his portfolio of fundraising proposals and reports. You will receive intensive writing mentorship from him and other team leaders over the first 6-12 months, then your work will then quickly ramp up in value, complexity, and independence.
This is a career-track position with opportunities to manage other writers based on performance and preference.
We have a strong culture of constant learning and we invest in developing our people. You will 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 will have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.
Across all roles, these are the general qualifications we look for. For this role specifically, we require:
As soon as possible
Flexible - Ideally New York, Nairobi, or Kigali, but also open to other capital cities (especially where we have existing staff/offices)
Health insurance in our group plan paid time off, flexible work environment, paid parental leave, sabbatical policy, laptop stipend, and more
