This role will step into coordinating many of One Acre Fund's top donor/partner relationships; originating material new resources for the organization; preparing for and helping lead governing board meetings; and supporting the organization's top US-based leaders in running the global support functions. At least 50% of this person’s role will focus on developing new partnerships/fundraising. This is a unique opportunity to help lead and gain an inside view on managing/governing one of the fastest-growing and most impactful global development organizations of our time.
The Senior Manager/Director role will be preferably based in New York or Philadelphia, sitting within our US/Europe, also known as “non-program countries” (NPC), team. One Acre Fund NPC serves as the resource engine for our field program – providing the talent, money, and opportunities that have enabled 30-40% year over year growth in the farm families we’ve reached and impact we’ve generated. One Acre Fund’s Managing Director coordinates the six global support functions that operate out of non-program countries, manages One Acre Fund’s global boards, manages a portfolio of critical donor and partner relationships, and represents One Acre Fund in a variety of external contexts. The Senior Manager/Director will develop their own donor portfolio, originating new relationships and managing complex existing grants, to fuel the organization’s growth. The Senior Manager/Director will also take on the MD’s current work managing One Acre Fund’s global governing board and UK governing board, and coordinating the six global support functions. The Senior Manager/Director will also serve represent One Acre Fund externally in the US and Europe.

This person also possesses a deep understanding of, experience in, and passion for global development and social sector work. The candidate should be a strong relationship-builder and humble to a fault, ready to work across several departments and manage multiple complex projects under tight deadlines. The Senior Manager/Director will also have the support of the Senior Analyst to the Managing Director. Responsibilities will include:
