Vacancy for Farmer Helpline Advisor
Esoko is a market information service via SMS, and is now providing support to farmers via a call in number. Farmers will be seeking support on a variety of topics.
For phase one, we will focus on supporting them in how to configure and use existing mobile/SMS alerts that come from Esoko and relate to market prices, offers to buy and sell, and other configuration issues.
In phase two, we anticipate growing the service to a much broader advisory service, including help around treating disease, new growing practices, application of fertilizers, access to markets, weather, and buyers/sellers. It’s a totally innovative and exciting new project that will empower rural farming communities with information that they can easily access over a phone.
We hope to support farmers in Twi, Hausa, Dagbani, Ewe and English. The actual work will require you to answer calls in a call centre in central Accra, in collaboration with key experts and partners. You need to have the patience to work in an office environment, answering calls all day, and you need to have a real passion to help people.
