Fresher Operations Officer Job Opportunities – AgriShare Uganda

 

Job Title:    Operations Officer

Organisation: AgriShare
Uganda

Duty Station:  Kampala,
Uganda

 

About US:

AgriShare Uganda is a tech-startup for hiring/renting agricultural
resources to farmers via a mobile app, website, and village agents using a
shared economy model (It is all about doing business, make a social impact,
have fun, and make a legacy!). So, we are like Uber for farmers, but providing
land, irrigation, tractor, trucks, labor, and processing services (But who
knows, we may add or reduce the services).

 

Job Summary: As Operations Officer, you will work with a
dynamic group of 3 – 6 individuals, some working from home, others (like you)
working from our not yet fully furnished field office in Luweero, and sometimes
at a co-working space in Kampala in a space with other start-ups.

 

Key Duties and Responsibilities:  

·       
Make
yourself a cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy snacks carried by one of the team
members (While some don’t, others carry berries, sweet banana, and groundnut!
What will you carry?).

·       
Check
your mail for any communications from the director, partners and team members
(make sure you reply). Of course, most times will meet-up with team either
physically or online!

·       
Login to
Teams app, check for outstanding tasks assigned to you and as well respond to
any chats from team members or boss (boss communicates via Teams chat more than
the emails).

·       
Complete
the Teams tasks. Make a phone call to our agent (s) or promoter. Pull out one of
our cool motor-bikes to visit an eagerly waiting farmer group to tell them
about AgriShare. Meet and convince a potential partner with resources for
hiring/renting (Now you are thinking of other ways of doing this, right?).

·       
While in
field think through which data or photo may be good for creating content for
social media. You think it is cool to post something on social media basing on
field experience. Whatever you do ensure that it brings business (because if
you don’t, how will we earn).

·       
Explain
or plan together what to do and as well share what you’ve done to the director.
Yes, because sometimes you will do all this with the director (he’s cool but
smilingly tougher than the boss; both are workaholics).

·       
Learn
something new (how else will you negotiate a raise). Our boss likes sharing
learning opportunities and she likes teaching others new things (Choose those
you deem appropriate for you, otherwise you may spend an entire day in
trainings).

·       
Call it
a day and ride back home. However, on a special abnormal day, you don’t mind
going out with the team, or working during some abnormal hours to finish up
some deadlines.
