Awesome team seek a Leadership Skills Developer to join their team

We are looking for a skilled professional to prepare, coordinate and evaluate Diversity and Inclusion training programs for our clients.

Do it Now Now (DINN) is an open innovation organisation committed to the social empowerment of Black people through the provision of access to opportunities for social mobility through entrepreneurship and employment. We bring skilled talent, charities, social entrepreneurs, start-up teams, social innovators, investors and philanthropists together to address social challenges, solve problems and support the development of underserved groups.

Do it Now Now has developed a methodology that supports the participants and secures the sustainability of their work. It is based on our success in supporting entrepreneurs through our support programmes. We call it ASAP:

  • Awareness: participants will have a good understanding of their strengths and weaknesses as well as their short, mid and long term goals. 
  • Self-actualisation: we know there is no linear enterprise path and we teach to support the development of skills that can be used in multiple contexts for that reason. 
  • Activation: through case studies, simulations and support to apply learning to their context, we provide training that will stay with them when they’re under pressure. 
  • Personalisation: we develop training with personalisation in mind. We work to understand and are sensitive to the needs of individuals so that we can ensure their success throughout the program.
