About the job



Thank you for expressing an interest in the role of Field Project Officer for Embu County with the International Tree Foundation. This is a full-time position (40  hours per week) based in Embu County.


ITF has pioneered community-led forest restoration since we were founded in 1922 in Kenya as Watu Wa Miti (People of the Trees) by Dr Richard St Barbe Baker and Chief Josiah Njonjo. Dr Richard St Barbe Baker was generations ahead of his time in terms of recognising the importance of trees and forests in sustaining life and psychological well-being.

While we have a long history and an impressive list of achievements we remain a relatively modest organisation in size with a small staff team. We are a membership organisation with just over 600 members and supporters and nearly 4,000 newsletter subscribers. Over the past three years, we supported the planting of more than two million trees in Africa and the UK and assisted more than 35,000 direct beneficiaries.

The Field Project Officer will play a key role in the International Tree Foundation’s work with partners in Embu county and Kenya. ITF’s current Watu Wa Miti programme encompasses work across Kenya, growing community-led action through three prongs:

  • Forest restoration.
  • Agroforestry.
  • Empowering young environmental stewards.
