  • Paradigm Shift: Master Trainers Consultancy

    Paradigm Shift
    Opportunity closing date: 
    Wednesday, April 30, 2014
    Opportunity type: 
    Employment
    Paradigm Shift ignites the church to transform South Africa's entrepreneurial poor. Paradigm Shift is a nonprofit organisation (founded out of the United States / main offices in Cape Town, South Africa). Paradigm Shift works alongside churches to develop a more effective way to reach the poor in their communities. Paradigm Shift believes that a more sustainable approach to poverty alleviation creates empowerment rather than dependency. And so the organisation helps community and faith-based organisations move beyond giving handouts and focus rather on creating lasting change in the lives of the poor.

    How? By helping churches to focus on the entrepreneurial poor (those already doing something proactive to get out of poverty), rather than the 'poorest of the poor' (those who are in hunger and abject poverty). In other words, they focus efforts on those already helping themselves. That happens through furthering entrepreneurship.

    Paradigm Shift provides its partner churches with training, coaching, resources and materials to implement the Paradigm Shift entrepreneurship development programme in their communities. The programme specifically targets individuals who turn to entrepreneurship as a way out of poverty (microentrepreneurs). It aims to help these microentrepreneurs grow their personal faith in Christ and their businesses by providing them with Business Training, Discipleship, Mentoring and Microcredit. When combined, these four components provide a unique approach that tackles both physical and spiritual poverty at the root and has the power to eliminate it for good.

    Paradigm Shift seeks to appoint Master Trainers to serve its partner churches, based in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

    Paradigm Shift's Master Trainers train South African churches and their volunteer teams to implement the Paradigm Shift entrepreneurship development programme. Master Trainers live and work in their respective cities around South Africa and provide in-person training / coaching to each of Paradigm Shift's partner church volunteer teams as they launch their local Paradigm Shift programmes.

    This is not a full-time position.

    Rather, consultancies are offered on an "as needed" basis. Our other ten Master Trainers have their own full-time jobs or work from home. (All consultancy work is in the evenings and weekends.)

    With 37 Paradigm Shift programmes running around South Africa already and more starting each month.

    Responsibilities:

    • Train and coach lead volunteers (Point Persons);
    • Manage communication with Point Persons through personal emails, phone calls and in-person meetings;
    • Train the Core Volunteer Team (six people) to execute the training, discipleship and microcredit programme;
    • Train the Mentors (10 - 30 at a time);
    • Train Microcredit Coordinators and attend the Business Assessment / Loan Decision Meeting (two hours);
    • Provide real-time coaching and support to the volunteers during the programme cycle (happens during four meetings spread out over nine weeks);
    • Attend entrepreneur Graduation and lead Mentors in debriefing their experience;
    • Manage and collect deliverables (reports, photos, surveys, loan ledgers and more) to give to Paradigm Shift;
    • Manage communication between the Point Person, Volunteer Team and Paradigm Shift.

    Requirements:

    • Personal faith in Jesus Christ / A growing daily walk with Him;
    • Minimum of a three year university degree;
    • Interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills (this is first measured in your application/interview process - so we want to see well-written, well-edited cover letters and CVs only please!);
    • Minimum of three years experience in roles of training and management;
    • Experience with and love for the poor;
    • An enjoyment of public speaking in a dynamic training environment;
    • Commitment to quality, details, and timeliness;
    • Delight in working with, and managing, a variety of personality types;
    • Relational approach that exudes the right mix of professionalism and fun;
    • Posture of service toward partners, volunteers and entrepreneurs.

    To apply, submit a CV (1-3 pages only) and a one page motivational letter to Marisa Barnett, Training Manager at marisa@shiftingparadigms.org. Note: No Word Documents will be accepted.

    Please quote the source of this advertisement in your application - NGO Pulse Portal.

    Paradigm Shift needs Master Trainers urgently and is interviewing / hiring on a rolling basis, so the sooner you can apply, the sooner you can get a consultancy!
