Farm Africa is a different kind of charity, working to end hunger and bring prosperity to rural eastern Africa. Our sustainable, community-led projects help Africa’s farmers feed Africa’s people – for the long-term.

We can reach more farmers by being experts in our field, pushing boundaries, working flexibly and sharing knowledge, and we're looking for talented staff to help us achieve this. 

Our values are very important to us as an employer and they are also very important to our employees. All prospective employees should take some time to carefully consider our values and how they fit with your own personal values before attending an interview with Farm Africa.
