About Farm Africa

Farm Africa is an international non-governmental organization (INGO) that reduces poverty in rural eastern Africa by helping farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more: we help farmers to not only boost yields, but also gain access to markets, and add value to their produce. We place a high priority on environmental sustainability and develop approaches that help farmers to improve their yields and incomes without degrading their natural resources. Achieving this means it is vital that our work delivers lasting positive change for the communities we work with. Farm Africa is committed to understanding what difference we are making on the ground and using sound evidence to identify opportunities to improve our impact.


The Role

The overall purpose of this role is to provide technical leadership, strategic oversight and support to project teams across the UK and East Africa, designing and delivering MEL initiatives to fulfil the organisation’s learning ambitions. Providing analytical support, quality assurance and capacity building to our field teams to ensure Farm Africa’s monitoring, evaluation and learning systems deliver credible, useful and accessible evidence of project results, this is an exciting opportunity for an experienced MEL professional to apply proven analytical and communication skills to real world challenges.

Duration & Hours: Fixed term contract with potential for extension
