Uganda Program Design Associate Job Vacancy - One Acre Fund


Job Title:       Uganda Program Design Associate
Organization: One Acre Fund
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda

About us:
Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies 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 trainings to improve harvests. We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.
We are growing quickly. We currently serve more than 800,000 farm families in Eastern and Southern Africa, with more than 7,500 full-time staff, and we aim to serve 1 million farm families by 2020.

Key Duties and Responsibilities: 
The first half of your job is to ensure our farmers understand our wide set of products, and are changing their behaviours accordingly through highly impactful trainings. You work closely with:
·       Our M&E team to understand how we can maximize impact from existing products and behaviours and you update and innovate on our training content accordingly.
·       Our Product Innovations team to maximize impact from new products, services and practices
·       Our Field Operations team, who ultimately deliver all the content you are creating, to ensure strong understanding and buy in behind our products, services and impact strategy.
Success in your role is measured by our ability to optimize each season’s impact and thereby hit our impact targets.
The second half of your job is to help build our field-facing strategies, setting our Field Team up for success:
·       Work with Operations (Field Operations and Systems) to develop practical solutions to field challenges
·       Design and build the enrollment and repayment strategies for our field team and transform them into understandable training elements for our FIeld Leaders and Field Officers
·       As part of the Steering Committee for Uganda, help to build the long-term country programme direction and strategy
·       Undertake post-mortems at the end of each major programme phase and develop action-focused recommendations for future programme improvements
·       Manage the field team calendar and seasonal activities, support in price setting and product selection.
·       Sit on the impact working group
Success in these areas will be measured through Field Team performance, specifically repayment of our credit portfolio and hitting growth metrics such as overall farmer numbers.
Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
Creating, monitoring, executing and adjusting (if needed) an Annual Impact Strategy:
·       You will work with the Impact Lead, and in close collaboration with PI, M&E, Field Ops and our Systems Teams to create/update and present an outstanding Impact Strategy every season.
·       In addition to help creating the annual Impact Strategy, you also own the creation of an execution plan to ensure that this strategy is effectively implemented. This includes coordination of key stakeholders who may be implementing certain aspects of the strategy.
·       Once launched, you are responsible for monitoring how this strategy plays out in field and if needed adjust and respond to challenges and opportunities as they unfold
Optimizing our Impact Training Portfolio/Farmer Training Uptake/Retention:
·       As we are growing our product portfolio and our program is becoming more complex and tackling a wider range of challenges such as income diversification, soil health, nutrition, etc. you will need to explore new and innovative ways of delivering training content and/or techniques for better knowledge retention
·       We expect you to frequently spend a lot of time in the field with our farmers and with the field team to understand what works and what does not so that you constantly re-iterate and improve our techniques for behaviour change.
·       Lastly, it’s critical that you operate through the formal processes set up by the Field Team to ensure the right content goes out at the right time - in each and every district
Protecting our Farmers from External Impact Threats:
·       To minimize the time spent on responding to unforeseen impact threats, you will:
·       Work with our global/in country team to prevent/prepare our farmers for the biggest impact threat.
·       Work across our Field and Systems team to ensure we have the systems/protocols build out to respond to risks with minimal disruptions
·       Keep a close eye on our Client Engagement database and foster ongoing dialogue with Field Leaders to pick up challenges as early as possible.
 In the event of unforeseen challenges, you will help:
·       Prioritize the response: Deprioritize and carefully weigh the cost of the response against the risk. You quickly and systematically quantify an impact risk and advise if/how we respond
·       Coordinate/optimize the response: Your leadership skills here could range from ‘only’ securing agronomic advice from experts and ensuring Field Ops update next week’s meeting agenda to rapidly aligning the organization behind a seed swap
·       Learning for the future: Ensure that lessons learned reach the team that can proactively prevent the risk in the future

Planning Field Activities
·       Building out detailed process and plans for each seasonal activity.
·       Monitoring and trading off activities for the field team where needed to prioritise tasks at the appropriate time.
·       Coordinating between different departments to feed into field based actions

Team Management
·       You manage the Programme Design team. You will be responsible for their professional development, performance, efficiency and team culture in accordance with One Acre Fund management principles and expectations.

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.
