Junior Field Supervisor at Cam Dairy Foods Limited

Cam is a pastoralist-driven Nigerian dairy company. We’re building a new economy that’s centred around real dairy; one that reintroduces fresh milk to Nigerian households, nourishes our growing population and eradicates poverty for our pastoralist suppliers and their communities. We’re establishing the supplier base and building the infrastructure to solve Nigeria's raw milk supply problem while making dairy products to address widespread nutritional gaps. Our goal at scale is to create a massive income boost for 500,000 pastoralists and 10,000 youth entrepreneurs living in extreme poverty and to nourish millions of customers with essential nutrients. By 2050, our goal is to establish a dairy industry that turns Nigeria from a net importer to a net producer of milk, all anchored around pastoralist communities.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:
