Opportunity has expired
Do you have the skills and experience to manage projects and partners in a challenging but rewarding role overseas? Do you speak fluent English and Spanish? Do you have experience working with volunteers and working in International Development, or similar transferable skills and experience? If so, we want to hear from you.
Latin American Foundation for the Future is a small but rapidly growing UK-registered charity which aims to give children and homes in Peru the tools and skills to build themselves an independent future, through education, vocational training, capacity-building and sustainability projects.
You'll be working directly with our partners, beneficiaries and volunteers in Cusco to plan, implement, monitor and evaluate and communicate progress on a range of education and sustainability projects.
Crucially, you'll help us work towards a vocational training programme for marginalised young people, supported by social enterprise, and you'll also be using your own skills to build capacity at our partner organisations helping them to become stronger, more independent organisations able to support even more marginalised young people.
Based in Cusco, Peru, you'll be working closely with partners, managing our team of long-term volunteers and be the lynch-pin of our overseas operations, supported by a remote internationally-located team.
If you're the dynamic self-starter we're looking for - with fluent Spanish and English and experience working in International Development, project management and working with volunteers (or similar relevant experience in a related field if the skills and experiences are transferable), please apply today!
Closing date for applications: 23.59 (GMT) on Tuesday 17th February 2013. Interview dates: w/c Mon 25th February 2013. Expected start date: Beginning of April 2013
