Job Title: Office Assistant, Uganda
Closing Date: Tuesday, 31 July 2012
The International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC) is recruiting staff for its 4-year CATALIST-Uganda Project, funded by the Netherlands Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) through the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Kampala. The project aims to enable over 100,000 Uganda smallholder farm families to produce and market potatoes, cassava, rice and sunflower on a commercial scale. The project will increase production of these commodities through intensified, sustainable farming methods, and will develop commodity value chains using an agribusiness cluster (ABC) approach. ABCs are defined as all actors collaborating to build profitable value chains (producers and their organizations, input suppliers, finance suppliers, processors, warehousing – value addition, traders – buyers – market parties, business development services, others). ABCs are designed to support smallholder farmers to move from subsistence farming to farming-as-a-business through a sustainable improvement in productivity and quality, leading to marketable surpluses and increased family incomes. IFDC is recruiting an Office Assistant.
The Office Assistant (Kampala-based) will be responsible for maintaining an efficient office environment and provide administrative, secretarial and clerical support to the project.
