GreenCape is hiring a Sustainable Agriculture Analyst.

The sustainable agriculture programme’s goal is to increase job creation and investment into the green technology and services that support the agricultural sector. We achieve this through a number of different activities: we perform demand creation activities (such as supporting farmers to become more water efficient and energy resilient) and we provide support to the sustainable agriculture sector (such as collecting and disseminating market intelligence and supporting innovation and entrepreneurship).

GreenCape is looking to add to the dynamic sustainable agriculture team by recruiting a smart, motivated individual who is aspiring to a future in the agriculture sector.

Job Description

The Sustainable Agriculture Analyst role is predominantly about building and maintaining key relationships across the value chain, growing our understanding of the space, identifying and unlocking barriers to investments and most importantly providing key industry players with valuable and objective market insights. All of which aligns itself with GreenCape’s mandate of unlocking investment opportunities and creating jobs.

The Sustainable Agriculture Analyst falls within GreenCape’s Water and Sustainable Agriculture Programme and the analyst will report directly to the Programme Lead. Most of this role will mainly support the work in Mpumalanga and therefore the successful candidate must be willing to travel locally.
