Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for the above-mentioned post.

The Magwa Enterprise Tea (MET), comprised of Magwa and Majola Teas Estates, situated in the rural areas of Lusikisiki and Port St Johns on the Wild Coast, Eastern Cape, South Africa, require the services of a Chief Executive Officer to oversee the operations of the tea estates. MET, supported by the Provincial Government of the Eastern Cape, is undergoing a major turnaround process towards establishing the enterprise as a flourishing, sustainable enterprise. This entails, among others –

• Ensuring that the revival of primary production operations – pruning, plucking, harvesting – is consolidated and sustained, as well as
• the introduction of local processing activity in the tea estates – tea-bagging and packaging.

Over and above this, a comprehensive planning process is being initiated towards the development of a master plan for a diversified economy, comprising the tea estates, new high-value commodities, and eco-tourism enterprises. The re-planning process and consequent rebranding and marketing of Magwa Enterprise Tea is further intended to attract private business partners into the multi-enterprise. The successful candidate will also co-coordinate the master plan development process. The successful candidate will be based at the Magwa Tea Estate, however, will from time to time be required to travel.
