Southern Africa Agriculture and Livelihoods Technical Advisor

Dear Colleague,

Canadian Foodgrains Bank and Tearfund are looking for a motivated, creative individual to serve as our Agriculture and Livelihoods Technical Advisor for southern Africa based in either Malawi or Zimbabwe. I’ve attached a job description, and applicants can apply online here.Job Description Southern Africa ALTA 2019-05.pdf (439.6 KB)

Please note that the above page describes this as a 12-month position, whereas it is actually a long-term hire. We are looking for people committed to long-term food security in southern Africa!

Please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested, and let me know if you have any questions.



Hi Neil,

I was thinking about applying for this position, but it looks like it’s a non-expatriate position and the applicant would already have to have eligibility to work in Malawi/Zim to apply. Is this right?



We’re hoping for a Malawi or Zimbabwe citizen, though we would consider exceptional individuals from outside the area…
