|Company:||One Acre Fund|
|Salary:||Ksh. Not Mentioned|
One Acre Fund is devoted to improving our level of service to Africa’s smallholder farmers season after season. We are constantly growing in scale, impact, and sustainability; our ability to do so reliably and rapidly depends on raising an ambitious level of external funding.
We are seeking a highly capable and motivated individual to support our growing fund development team in both grant writing and reporting. We want someone who has a true passion for writing, and in particular for communicating complicated ideas in a simple way. Prior experience with grants is not required in this role – being a structured and inspiring prose writer and having a good business mind are the most important prerequisites. This person must be able to step back, understand our programs and needs, and write a strategic appeal that is well-tailored to the grant opportunity at hand. This role will likely start by writing proposals and reports for smaller grants but quickly move into the $500,000+ gift range. Beyond the scope of writing, this role will also provide support in our donor relations management process, working directly alongside account leads to ensure that our donor relationships remain close, consistent, and mutually beneficial.
This is a career-track position, with significant growth potential to take on ownership of high-level writing and reporting functions. In the long term, this position has multiple pathways to management, based on performance – including managing other team members and/or managing an independent portfolio of donor relations.
