Farm Africa’s London office recruits staff for posts in Britain and senior posts in Africa. Full job details will be posted here, the BOND network and CharityJOB.

Posts in our country offices are recruited in-country and advertised in national papers as well as ReliefWeb.

We cannot respond to unsolicited requests and applications for employment or volunteer opportunities.
