VESTIGINGSMANAGER IN MALAWI , Malawi

Titel: Vestigingsmanager met ondernemersgeest
Standplaats: Malawi
Aanvang: In overleg
Bedrijfsnaam: Doingoood

Heb jij een passie voor het Afrikaanse continent, een hoge intrinsieke drive en ben je zelfstandig en ondernemend?

Misschien word jij dan wel heel blij van de kans die Doingoood je te bieden heeft. Op onze bestemming Malawi zijn wij namelijk op zoek naar een vestigingsmanager die de eindverantwoordelijkheid voor deze prachtige bestemming op zich neemt. Je bent eigen baas in Malawi terwijl je tegelijkertijd meelift op de goede naam, de werkwijze en de hele operationele organisatie die Doingoood in Malawi heeft opgezet.

Bij Doingoood geloven wij dat mensen betere wereldburgers kunnen zijn als er meer begrip is voor andere leefwijzen en culturen. Met onze programma's willen we mensen kennis laten maken met het échte dagelijkse leven van mensen in Afrika. Een leven dat er vaak heel anders aan toe gaat, dan wat je -mede dankzij wat de media ons laat zien- ervan denkt te weten.

Doingoood organiseert en begeleidt buitenlandstages, reizen met (maatschappelijke) impact, tussenjaar programma's, vrijwilligerswerk en schoolreizen in Afrika.

Jaarlijks helpen wij zo'n 200 reizigers om goed georganiseerd en zorgeloos te kunnen genieten van Afrika. Wij zijn heel enthousiast zijn over het Afrika dat wij kennen. Over de hartverwarmende projecten, de inspirerende mensen en de prachtige plekken op dit geweldige continent. En al dat enthousiasme over 'ons' Afrika, delen we graag met onze deelnemers. Vanuit onze eigen ervaring.

In deze pittige functie ben je primair verantwoordelijk voor het ontwikkelen van de Doingoood organisatie in Malawi. Je ontwikkelt partnerschappen met nieuwe partners en onderhoudt de bestaande relaties. Je begeleidt stagiaires, vrijwilligers en reizigers tijdens hun verblijf in Malawi. Je weet moeiteloos in te spelen op onverhoopte problemen of onverwachte plotwendingen die zich voordoen.

Kortom, het is jouw taak om ervoor te zorgen dat zowel het project als de deelnemer optimaal profiteert van de samenwerking. Je helpt deelnemers om meer begrip te krijgen voor de cultuur en leefwijze in Malawi. Je ondersteunt, waar nodig, stagiaires bij het behalen van hun stagedoelen. Je coacht de projecten hoe zij optimaal gebruik kunnen maken van de inzet van de stagiaires en vrijwilligers. En je zorgt ervoor dat alle randvoorwaarden voor een fijne samenwerking en een veilig verblijf gewaarborgd zijn.

Wie ben jij/ zijn jullie:
• Een persoon (of stel) met een passie voor Afrika en bij voorkeur al ervaren is met ondernemen of managen in een andere cultuur
• Je bent ondernemend van karakter, kan kansen herkennen en je vindt het leuk om resultaten te boeken
• Je vindt het leuk om jouw kennis en ervaringen op anderen over te brengen en hen te helpen om daarin zelf ook een ontwikkeling door te maken
• Je vindt het een fijne uitdaging om de gehele verantwoording voor de vestiging Malawi op je te nemen
• Je bent een ‘het glas is altijd halfvol’ persoonlijkheid, je communiceert prettig en helder, je bent niet bang om op jezelf te reflecteren en je houdt van eerlijkheid en degelijkheid (als in: alles is netjes en goed geregeld)

Dit hebben wij te bieden:
• Een kans om als zelfstandig ondernemer aan de slag te gaan, als ‘franchise nemer’ van Doingoood. Je kan direct instappen in een lopende organisatie waarin heel veel al geregeld is en zó overgenomen kan worden
• Een aantrekkelijke financiële verdeling van de inkomsten
• Een geweldige kans om de bestemming Malawi tot haar volle potentie (en er is echt veel potentie) te ontwikkelen. Hierin heb je –binnen de afgesproken kaders voor kwaliteit en veiligheid- alle vrijheid om dit naar eigen inzicht vorm te geven
• Samenwerking met een gedreven, enthousiast team met een groot hart voor Malawi

Goed om te weten als je gaat reageren:
• Wij zijn op zoek naar iemand die zich voor langere tijd wil verbinden aan Doingoood in Malawi en die dat echt vanuit zelfstandigheid wil doen. Het betreft hier dus geen loondienstverband. Er komt een franchise contract waarin alle afspraken worden vastgelegd.
• Er is een verdiepingsdocument beschikbaar met meer inhoudelijke informatie over de vestiging in Malawi. Hierin vind je ook de historische gegevens van de aantallen deelnemers van de afgelopen 3 jaar en de daarbij behorende verdien potentie op basis van de af te spreken financiële verdeelsleutel. Deze komt beschikbaar voor mensen die serieuze interesse hebben en reageren op deze vacature.
• Er is sprake van een instap fee. Dit kan je zien als ‘good will’ en een stuk commitment om een succes te maken van jouw franchise in Malawi

Enthousiast geworden?

Neem een video van jezelf op waarin je reageert op deze kans en stuur die, samen met je CV, naar ineke@doingoood.nl

Er is geen sluitingsdatum voor reageren. We gaan gesprekken inplannen zodra er reakties binnen komen en blijven dit doen totdat we de geschikte persoon/ personen gevonden hebben.
