Join our small but passionate team in the UK, to support Tiyeni through the transition from a local charity in Malawi on to the international stage! Seeking a master multi-tasker who is enthusiastic to make a difference.

What will you be doing?

This person would liaise closely with the part-time UK Development Manager (in London and/or remotely) and Tiyeni's overseas implementation team (remotely) to assist with the smooth running of the charity through carrying out essential administrative tasks. 

What are we looking for?


● General Administrative Skills
● IT proficiency - accurate data entry and word processing skills

● Understanding of funder research and data storage for charitable/not for profit organisations.
● Prior administrative experience


What difference will you make?

It’s an exciting and challenging time with the charity's current expansion across all 3 regions of Malawi. The potential impact is far reaching and this role could be instrumental in enabling Tiyeni to raise its profile, increase fundraising and communicate it's message, making a big leap forward in the aim to reach all farming families across Malawi. 

What's in it for the volunteer?

Now is an exciting to join and contribute to Tiyeni's development - Due to the speed at which farmers have adopted our Deep Bed farming method, and the exponential demand from farming communities and NGOs for training, the trustees, staff and directors are working hard to take advantage of the increased demand; all project data is going towards generating scientific research on the effectiveness of the Deep Bed Farming method and learning lessons; and, we are aiming to embed the Deep Bed method in the education system in Malawi. 

A few more details

You will be working alongside a small but very dedicated UK team of staff, volunteers and trustees, as well as getting to know and supporting our Malawian team of staff in Mzuzu northern Malawi, who are at the heart of our charitable organisation.
