    ACRE Africa is a pioneering company in the microinsurance sector, with a mission to help unlock the full potential of agriculture by eliminating the stress and potential damage of climate variables for farmers across Africa.

    ACRE Africa is not an insurance company, but rather a service provider working with local insurers and other stakeholders in the agricultural insurance value chain. The company was originally established in 2009 and has a group of reputed international funders, including Syngenta Foundation and the Global Index Insurance Facility (GIIF).

    ACRE Africa - a leading microinsurance company for smallholder farmers - is seeking to hire a new Chief Executive Officer to drive the next phase of growth and change.
