Training Lead

The WeServe project aims to use the power of story-telling to help migrants and refugees gain access to new job opportunities. By creating a platform that outlines available services, beneficiaries will be able to use their skills anywhere from nannying to fixing computers. The platform will target the local and international “expat” community that may be needing these services. We aim to connect people according to their needs and provide a bridge for our beneficiaries to find a more long-term means of income.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Plan and run a monthly mandatory beneficiary training (legal);
  • Organize monthly workshops, provided by LP partners;
  • Create and collect feedback forms from beneficiaries that attended training and workshops;
  • Recommend improvements, based on feedback collected;
  • Work in collaboration with Matching Lead and Social Media Manager to understand what are the most in-demand skills/professions/jobs and organize a workshop about that.

Requirements:

  • Strong interpersonal communication including the ability to motivate others;
  • Ability to work effectively both independently and as part of a team with enthusiasm, initiative and creativity;
  • Detail-oriented and efficient;
  • Must speak fluent English;

Benefits:

  • Networking opportunities – getting connected to partner institutions, philanthropists and people of all backgrounds;
  • Contribution to social impact – self-fulfillment and personal growth in pursuing a valuable cause;
  • Knowledge growth – learning about immigration related processes, contexts and realities as well as other NGO related topics in Portugal;
  • Multi-tasking – having the flexibility to work with different departments and teams, growing in the knowledge and experience of each as well as developing diverse skills to meet the needs presented;
