As a Field Data Collection Team Coordinator, you will supervise and monitor the work of enumerators, ensuring the reliability and quality of data collected from both farmers and dealers, and achieving daily targets. This involves daily coordination with data collectors and field visits for data validation. Additionally, you will provide weekly reports to the Preferred by Nature project manager, adhering to the established guidelines and protocols.

Working with us is never routine so the first year you can expect the following areas to be central to your work.

  • Provide guidance and coaching to enumerators on effective data collection techniques.
  • Supervise data collection activities, ensuring daily targets are met and protocols are adhered to.
  • Conduct field visits to verify and validate collected data.
  • Communicate regularly with the Project Manager, reporting challenges and providing updates on data collection activities.

At Preferred by Nature, we prioritize your growth and support continuous learning through professional development and career paths aimed at helping you grow in your career.

Within three months, you will:

  • Establish a solid understanding of the project objectives, methodologies, and tools.

Within one year, you will:

  • Achieve consistent high-quality data collection and reporting.
  • Develop a self-sustaining, high-performing team.
  • Contribute to the project's long-term ambitions.

  • Minimum 2 years of experience in the field or in the forestry or agriculture sector.
  • Strong team management and administrative skill
  • Good communication skill, excellent written and verbal communication in English and local language.
  • Willingness to travel to remote locations for field work.
