Self Help Africa Global AgriEnterprise Advisor – Jobs on Kenya

Self Help Africa (SHA) is an international NGO dedicated to the vision of an economically thriving and resilient rural Africa. Headquartered in Ireland, SHA creates scalable and sustainable solutions to eradicating long-term poverty through knowledge transfer, investment, and market linkages.

In 2021, Self Help Africa merged with United Purpose. This doubled our size and created an international NGO that is implementing projects to end extreme hunger and poverty across 17 countries, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa.

Collectively a part of the wider Gorta Group, which also includes social enterprise subsidiaries Partner Africa, TruTrade and Cumo Microfinance, the organisation will work with close to six million people this year.

To deliver on our mission and provide the best service and support to the communities whom we serve, we have in place the highest standards of compliance, accounting, safeguarding and delivery systems across our organisation.

We believe in market-based solutions to the alleviation of long-term poverty and our primary clients are smallholder farmers in Africa. We work with all participants in the agricultural value chain and believe that you can only achieve long-term sustainable growth by creating profitable businesses (whatever the size) and farmer organisations that can operate at scale.

We are committed to establishing social enterprises and believe in the business of doing good business throughout Africa. Our subsidiaries inculde TruTrade, which supports market access for small-holder farmers in the agricultural value-chain; and Partner Africa, an ethical auditing and consultancy firm that operates across more than 40 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.

We are now recruiting a Global Agrienterprise Advisor to join our team.

This role, which can be based in Dakar or Nairobi, is central to the achievement of SHA’s vision of thriving rural economies and is part of the global technical advisory team. This post will explore and advise on best practice from within Self Help Africa and experiences from other market systems actors to ensure programmes across all countries of operation are providing effective enterprise development support to smallholder farmers moving them beyond subsistence farming to developing commercial, market-based enterprises, promoting their inclusion in national, regional and global markets.

The Enterprise Advisor will embed market-based approaches in country programmes, identify collaborating partners in the development and private sectors and encourage innovation and facilitate learning across all of our country operations.

The Enterprise Advisor will be part of a Global Team of Advisors covering Agriculture, Enterprise, Dairy Systems, Gender and Social inclusion, Nutrition, WASH, Forestry and Natural Resource Management.
