Amandla Development is a nonprofit organisation that works to empower South African youth with equal access to quality education opportunities. Amandla facilitates the Philippi Collective Network, a cross-sector group that fosters a community-driven approach to improving learner wellbeing and education outcomes.
Job Title: Project Coordinator
Job Location: Cape Town
Start date: 1 October
The Community Solutions Programme is Amandla’s programme for improving the quality and accessibility of cradle-to-career supports in the community. The Community Solutions Coordinator works with members of the collective network to use the data we collect to improve and align their services. The Coordinator will work with collective network members to identify barriers to successful completion of the cradle-to-career journey (whether in school or outside school) and develop strategies and collaborative projects to remove those barriers.
The successful candidate will be responsible for regular liaising with collective network members, facilitating our working groups to develop collaborations, and working closely with the Data Coordinator to ensure projects are evidence-based and that our network is utilising the best information possible for developing a strong web of care across the community for all of Philippi’s young people. Because our work is cross-sector, candidates with experience in more than one area (i.e., health, education) will be highly-valued. There will be regular reporting to funders and the community of both quantitative measures of change and of change stories with young people.
To apply, submit CV, (two pages maximum), a one-page motivational letter outlining your experience, most recent salary and salary expectations to [email protected] with “Community Solutions Coordinator” in the subject line.
