About the role

The Program Associate for Learning and Development (L&D) will support the planning, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of L&D activities targeting myAgro’s sales team in Mali – a diverse team of office and field based sales managers, supervisors, and agents, as well as our network of over 1000 Village Entrepreneurs (VEs).

  • Compile, interpret, and analyze data to report on the effectiveness of L&D interventions;
  • Assist in the preparation of the L&D budget, monitoring of expenditure and processes the day-to-day transactions under the approved budget;
