About the Role :

  • We’re looking for an experienced Country Director to lead a dynamic young team across Senegal for myAgro’s next phase of growth.

  • Looking ahead, Senegal will be our primary location for scale, reaching >600,000 farmers in the next 5 years.

  • Your role as Country Director is to build out your management team and drive towards operational excellence while improving organizational sustainability and impact per farmer.

  • This is not a typical Country Director role! You will have minimal administrative and fundraising responsibilities.

  • We need leaders who love getting mud on their boots while they visit farmers’ fields and thinking strategically on how to improve execution at a scale from 60,000 farmers to 600,000.

  • We need leaders who think coaching and team development is a core function of their role and love to see their people succeed in new & challenging ways. We need experienced professionals who will help lead myAgro’s strategy and team to greater heights of impact and scale.

  • Experience coaching others, substantial people management experience

  • Experience in operational roles, especially in growing NGOs, businesses or social enterprises.
