Our Program Rotation Specialist position is designed to develop new opportunities and fill temporary staffing gaps at the Program Specialist job level. Program Specialists implement projects in the field, translating strategy to direct action to accomplish goals. A Program Rotation Specialist will typically report directly to a Program Associate for professional development and daily management

Selected Program Rotation Specialists will rotate through a series of field-based postings, followed by a permanent posting or further rotations depending on your interests:

  • First 12-24 months: Rotate between multiple ~6-month long posts
  • Afterwards: Permanently fill a high priority role of interest for the candidate

Example rotations include:

  • Field Operations: This team is the direct service provider to our farmers, building the capacity of our local staff to provide financially sustainable impact to all One Acre Fund farmers. A rotation with Field Operations could include delivering training materials for for 100,000+ farmers or implementing an incentive program to ensure high repayment
  • Business Operations: This team builds necessary back-end systems like transaction tracking, client data management, print, procurement, and investigations. A Business Operations rotation could include running a bulk SMS service or piloting a new customer service line
  • Logistics: The primary responsibility of our Logistics team is to provide life-changing, high-quality inputs and materials to farmers on time for planting. A rotation with Logistics could include developing improved warehouse management processes for dozens of warehouses
  • Program Innovations: This team’s goal is to multiply One Acre Fund’s impact on the communities we serve by improving the customer service we provide to those households. Example projects could include implementing field tablet trials or helping test out new projects like One Acre Fund-branded agro-dealers

Specific rotation projects and the eventual permanent role for rotational staff are determined by the Program Rotation Manager in collaboration with One Acre Fund leadership. We see this role as a way to develop future leaders in international development through exposure to a diverse set of organizational needs and a focus on professional development
