Beekeeping expert needed - North Yemen

CIIR, a London based development agency, is seeking to recruit an experienced beekeeper to develop a beekeeping project amongst rural communities. The project is part of a larger development scheme in North Yemen's central highland region, funded internationally and nationally, designed to increase agricultural productivity.

The beekeeper will encourage small hold farmers and other rural people to participate in the beekeeping project and organise beekeeping extension messages for them, eg how to divide a colony, hive a swarm, inspect a colony, harvest honey and beeswax, uses of beeswax. She/he will also train a local counterpart in the theoretical and practical skills of beekeeping.

Applicants should have a qualification in beekeeping and honey production and a minimum of two years experience. Applicants without a qualification but with considerable experience are welcomed.

CIIR provides a two year contract, a salary adequate for a single person, housing, a return flight, insurance, various allowances, extensive briefings, language training, etc.
