Olmec is looking to recruit a Project Administration Officer to join our dynamic team in the delivery of Black on Board, Rise into Employment, and other training courses. Applicants will enjoy being part of a small team and will be used to working within diverse communities. We are a flexible employer and welcome job share applications.
Olmec has a proven track record of delivering on our mission of race equality by supporting people into sustainable employment, into board positions and providing business support to social enterprises. Olmec has been working to promote race equality through economic and social justice since 2003. We were founded to respond to the needs of people living in challenging neighbourhoods, focusing on empowering people experiencing levels of deprivation.
Our principal activities are:
Community leadership programmes such as Black on Board that offer a pathway into governance positions.
Supporting social housing residents into work through innovative employment training, job brokerage and coaching programmes.
Developing the capacity and sustainability of social enterprises through business support.
Supporting the race equality sector.
Developing avenues to act as a catalyst for social change.
Olmec has been operating a paper free, home and remote access model for 2 years. All of our programmes have been designed to be conducted remotely without losing any quality or the ability for attendees to interact, collaborate and build a peer community.
Our experience over the 2 years is that the outputs ratio of 75% of people prepared for promotion and into boards is unaffected. The same is true with First Steps in Social Enterprise online, which we have delivered to 50 participants since 2018.
We use video conferencing apps such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Which can be used for interviews, meetings, supervision, or webinars. The higher functionalities enable us to recreate the classroom and deliver with the ability to use breakout rooms for pair work and group work.
