Many placements involve working with small community organisations, local NGOs or local government ministries to help local farmers increase their agricultural productivity, quality of produce, and profit margin.
You could be supporting farmers to form co-operatives, develop strategies for lowering production costs or add value to their produce. By providing advice to improve their marketing techniques and source alternative markets the farmers will increase profits and ensure a more sustainable living.
You’ll be qualified to degree or diploma level, with at least two years experience of agricultural economics, agricultural business development or farm management. You’ll have excellent business expertise, as well as report writing and training skills. Micro-finance development experience is desirable.
You could be working in countries like Malawi, Ghana, Guyana, Cambodia, Mozambique and Tanzania.
