About the Role

The website manager will manage One Acre Fund’s global website as part of the execution of the organization’s digital strategy. We are at an exciting stage in the development of this strategy. Having recently revamped the site design and CMS, we are now looking to expand our capacity to enable us to better manage and optimize the website in support of our digital brand building, engagement, fundraising, and recruitment goals. 


Our website is an important part of our digital ecosystem, supporting all our digital marketing activities for multiple audiences across the funnel. It is a critical tool in helping us to create an impact for the farmers we serve by helping us raise funds and attract top talent: our primary audiences are supporters/donors and talented professionals like yourself in the East African job market.


We’re looking for a website manager with strong content management and technical skills to manage the daily upkeep and optimization of the website, help deliver smooth user journeys and experiences, and support key internal stakeholders to meet their strategic objectives. 


You’ll also be the day-to-day project manager for any new functionality or developments and deployments with our web agency, so we’re looking for someone with strong product and project management skills to prioritize and translate requirements to developers and stakeholders alike.


You will report to the Digital Marketing and Communications Associate and you will sit within One Acre Fund’s Communications Team, but will closely collaborate with our Business Development (Fundraising and Partnerships) and Recruitment teams.
