We’re very pleased to announce that Firetail is now hosting the Agricultural Learning and Impacts Network (ALINe). This is an initiative to promote people-centred Measurement, Learning and Evaluation (MLE) in agricultural development. It has a particular focus on initiatives supporting smallholder farmers within Sub Saharan Africa and South/South-East Asia. You can find out more about the initiative here. To make room for the new team, we’ve also moved to new offices in Westminster.

We’re very pleased to announce the launch of the Firetail Job Board. We’re not recruiters, but we built it because our clients were telling us how hard and expensive it is to reach great people. It’s available at http://jobs.firetail.co.uk and on twitter and facebook. We’ll also feature ads in future briefings. Job ads will cost just £99+VAT in the New Year, but will be free to new and existing newsletter subscribers as we launch. If you want to place a free ad, email Calum at email@example.com. Please spread the word! READ MORE
