VACANCY: Grounded is looking for an operational manager for the Simalaha Incubator Farm

This primary agri-business envisaged is of a regenerative high input ‘incubator’ farm focused on cash crops and high value crops which can be processed (specifically spices). This farm will provide the best performing subsistence/smallholder farmers with a pathway to commercial production. The idea is that the development of such a company fits into the wider landscape vision of the SCC and will be a key example of best practice in the landscape.

As the farm is in its infancy, the role will concentrate on spearheading up the necessary training, inputs, and infrastructure acquisition, start-up processes, relationships and market linkages to get the business off the ground before moving into operational and general management over time.

More information attached.
