Posted on 8 June 2021, for DUO for a JOB

Branch manager Rotterdam (paid opportunity)

DUO for a JOB is looking for someone to kickstart their project in The Netherlands. 

DUO for a JOB organises intergenerational and intercultural mentoring to facilitate access to the job market for the youngest jobseekers while recognizing the value of the over 50 experience.

Practically this means a relationship where an experienced person, “the mentor”, shares their knowledge and expertise with a young person, “the mentee”, in order to allow them to develop their skills and autonomy, and to enable them to identify and achieve professional objectives. This relationship (“the duo”) is based on exchanging, learning and permanent and reciprocal trust.

Once paired, the young person and his or her mentor meet for two hours a week for six months. After launching 3500+ duos in 7 cities (such as Brussels, Antwerp,Paris,… ) they are ready and willing to contribute to inclusivity in Rotterdam.

As a branch manager you will be responsible for rolling out their program to The Netherlands. They are looking for someone who:

  • Wants to carry out DUO's social mission, with a big interest and motivation for the integration of young migrants
  • 5 years of professional experience, preferably on a management level in the non-profit sector
  • Entrepreneurial spirit
  • Knowledge of Rotterdam and her social map
  • Proficient in Dutch and English (French is a pré)
