Objectives and Key Deliverables

For a project in Ivory Coast, our team has worked with our client to understand what it will take to grow demand for fertilizers, chemicals, and crop protection products (“CPPs”) by small-holder farmers. To that end, the team proposed concrete pilots that can inform the design of larger initiatives for implementation by the client to achieve significant growth in revenue, and to facilitate the build-up of partnerships with the right stakeholders in the market who can support market interventions with the client.

The client is now trusting us with a route-to-market strategy that leverages the findings of the project phase described above. Key components of the project are: strategy definition, RTM design, distributor management, salesforce transformation, supply chain design, business plan development, implementation planning.

We are looking for an experienced project lead who is experienced in leading, supporting, and executing client projects in collaboration with a ~6 person team of associates, key experts and field researchers. The consultant has a very good command of French, and has ideally worked in Francophone West Africa before. Other desired requirements:

- Bachelor’s and Master’s degree required;
- Must have MBB (McKinsey, Bain, BCG) experience within the last 5 years.
- Min. 3 years working experience at a big strategic consulting firm, at least 1 year as a junior project manager or project manager;
- Understanding of agricultural and/or chemicals space and African markets strongly preferred;
- Highly output driven;
- Ability to lead a team of up to 6 people;
- Readiness to work full-time in Abidjan (local travel possible) for 3 months;
- Languages: English and French required
