We’re looking for a Programme Co-ordinator for India!
Is this you?
- You’ve just quit your corporate job; are a freelancer and want to take some time out or you are in the middle of a career break
- You want to travel to Asia; but you want to do it with purpose, perhaps volunteer but definitely do something meaningful that has significant impact
- You are passionate about Social Entrepreneurship and feel this could be a career direction for you
- You have bags of confidence, have been working professionally for 3+ years and you enjoy learning environments whilst having fun!
- You are highly organised, you love people, culture and you pride yourself on making things happen and getting the impossible done
What does a Programme Co-Ordinator do?
No two days are the same. Co-ordinating a programme requires tenacity, motivation, passion and drive. You’re creative, you love travel, culture, are incredibly patient and enjoy creating experiences for others. You care about people and want to make sure they are having a great time. And most importantly, you love business and you want to change the world.
On our #ImmersionProgramme in Hyderabad, India you will be a core member of the delivery team responsible for ensuring that our volunteers are having an incredible, enriching experience. Working alongside the Programme Manager for India, you will partake in the following activities:
- Organising trips and excursions for the group (which we call ‘headspace breaks’)
- Delivering training sessions around social entrepreneurship, consultancy tools & techniques, start-up methods, marketing & finances and more
- Supporting in the management of our local support co-ordinator
- Creating informative materials, printed items, and other communications products and tools
- Being a joint liaison between our volunteers, the Programme Manager and our country partners, UnLtd
- Overseeing the Social Media for your programme and thinking about other ways to tell the impact stories that come out of it
- Assisting the Programme Manager on any relevant tasks and projects in tune with your skill set and experience
- Working one day a week on _SocialStarters HQ projects (anything from research tasks, strategy & development, marketing & comms to assisting the Directors)
What else will I do / learn?
You will have one day a week to work on your own projects and ideas for your future career. As a career development organisation that is invested in personal transformation we are committed to supporting our teams through their own journey.
Plus you will be able to learn from your peers, from the workshops we collaboratively deliver as well as the social entrepreneurs who your volunteers work with.
Expect to finish volunteering fresh with ideas, new ways of doing things and a clearer vision for what’s to come in the future.
What does it cost?
