One Acre Fund


Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies 1 million smallholder farmers with the
agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive.
Our 8,000+ team is drawn from diverse backgrounds and professions. With
operations across six core countries in Africa, we make farmers more
prosperous by providing quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within
walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural training to improve
harvests. On average, the farmers we serve harvest 50 percent more food after
working with One Acre Fund.

detail, and a track record of strategic thinking to join our Financial
Advisory Services team in Rwanda. You will lead the financial planning and

You will work also on short-term projects across multiple functions to solve
complex strategic and financial problems. You will take on full ownership of
these projects, from planning, through to execution and follow-up, often
directly with project partners. You will manage anywhere from 1-3 projects at
any given time, and are expected to solve any type of project – from
quantitative modelling to primary research.

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. You’ll 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, you will have:

> Work Experience: 3+ years of relevant industry experience
> Technical skills: Experience in FP&A is preferred. Advanced Excel (can perform complex functions). Experience with other professional programs (e.g. R, STATA) is a plus.

> A willingness to commit to living in East Africa for at least two years.
