Challenges Worldwide under the Youth to Work programme is offering willing young graduates and professionals an opportunity to learn new business and consultancy skills that they can later employ in their careers and professional lives.
Funded by the Standard Chartered Foundation, the programme seeks to recruit 45 young and enthusiastic Ugandan professionals aged 21-30 and 21-35 for Persons with Disabilities. To qualify, applicants should also;
– Have a University degree or have a sound understanding of finance, operations or sales and marketing for business, demonstrated through previous work experience.
– Be fluent in both Verbal and Written English.
– Have excellent communication, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
– Commit to a 14-week full-time placement.
The Youth to Work programme seeks to position and equip young people with skills and opportunities to create economic and employment changes across the economy for sustainable and measurable impact.
Youth will also get an opportunity to develop their skill set to improve employability, access to best practice resources to guide on placement, and an opportunity to gain valuable insight into all areas of enterprise among other benefits.
The trained young people become implementers of change, rather than standalone programme beneficiaries. Small & Medium Enterprises play a vital role as they are key in housing the young people for the duration of the program.
The programme is designed around an enterprise placement-based model. It uses a structured 14-week work placement Business Development Services (BDS) initiative to strengthen the business performance of SGBs. The components of the programme are; Recruitment, Placement and Post-placement.
Deadline for application is 4th December.
