IECD recruits 01 Project Manager

IECD recruits 01 Project Manager – Hospitality Vocational Training for vulnerable youth M/F

CONTEXT

IECD, European Institute of Cooperation and Development, is a French development organization operating in the field of international solidarity since 1988.

In partnership with local organizations in 14 countries, IECD implements programs for vocational training and professional integration, access to education, support to small enterprises and health care.

More info on www.iecd.org

In Yangon, IECD launched a training center and social enterprise in the field of Bakery & Pastry. Since July 2018, 22 students followed an intensive practical and theoretical training (bakery, pastry, life skills, IT, English etc.) that prepared them for a successful integration in the job market.

Within “The French Bakery” social enterprise, the products baked by the students were sold and contributed to cover part of the cost of the training.

As a way to adapt to the evolving context, IECD is now working on new ways to better support the vulnerable beneficiaries towards a successful social and professional integration in the Hospitality sector.

A pilot phase will focus on technical assistance to a partner, in the field of French Bakery, Life Skills and Guidance & Employment.

MISSION

Together with the local partner and with its team, the project manager will lead the implementation of the pilot phase of the project and will prepare for a successful long-term implementation.

A successful pilot phase and a positive evolution of the local context could lead to several development opportunities for the hospitality project and potentially for other projects (develop new IECD activities in Myanmar). Therefore, based on the candidate’s competencies and motivation, the position can evolve, and the missions below are scalable.

The main missions planned for the 6-months pilot phase, will mainly include:
