Are you an agricultural expert? Do you have experience in Africa? Would you like to work for a company having a positive impact not only on the environment but also the social well being of communities in Africa? If so, please read on...

A really exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced agricultural advisor to join a social impact investor with a particular focus on sub-Saharan Africa and work with their partners ensuring sustainable farming with an embedded social compass.

Your experience working on a range of agricultural projects in Africa will put you in a good position to manage and advise on a range of investments, so good communication skills will be required as you'll be liaising both internally and externally.

Your technical experience will also be required as you'll be advising on crop suitability recommendations, yields and livestock production targets, labour requirements, irrigation systems, equipment requirements and reviewing gross margin models. You'll also be providing internal advice to support the investment decisions and, given the nature of the business, the social and environmental elements will also be considered.

Based in London? No problem as the main office is here but you will travel regularly to project sites and the offices over there. If you'd rather be based in Africa, that's fine as well, although some flexibility will be required.

So if this sounds like the role for you and you'd like to find out more, call Katie on 01202 888986 ext 207.
