Job: International trainer and project manager (Berlin)

International Trainer and Project Manager with focus on Sustainability Consulting m/f Berlin and Asia

Our client has been supporting international companies in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for 10 years. The projects of our client represent an alternative to traditional, often inefficient and postcolonial, approaches addressing power relations along global supply chains. They are aimed at strengthening local stakeholders in production countries and initiating continuous improvement that benefits all.

Your role:
You will develop training and provide consultancy for the improvement of living and social standards in emerging countries. During regular stays abroad (particularly in Bangladesh) you will perform trainings and conduct coaching at production sites. You will continue to provide ongoing support from the office in Berlin. Through direct contact with decision-makers, you consult multinational corporations, in areas related to sustainable procurement management and corporate responsibility.

Your profile:
You want to create sustainable improvement of living and working conditions in emerging countries, and are ready to dedicate all your passion and creative power to this goal. You are ready to even go against the tide. Extremely poor living standards and the associated physical and emotional stresses (e.g. heat, noise, dirt, narrow, lack of resources, poverty and violence) do not discourage you but, rather, pique your motivation to affect significant change. You perceive yourself as a changemaker; and are able to incorporate cultural, social, religious, ethnic and gender aspects constructively into your work.

You have an academic degree or professional training, and a minimum of five years of relevant experience (e.g. at a company, international aid organisation, consultancy, labour union or NGO). Qualification and experience as a trainer, mediator or coach is a plus. Contact with challenging clients and audiences (whether manager, worker or stakeholder) is not new to you. You competently drive conflict-ridden and complex processes, even in front of large groups. Methodological know-how in the areas of project management and business development, as well as excellent English and basic German language skills, complete your profile. You have an authentic and inspiring personality; are assertive, self-reliant, and goal-oriented; and have strong improvisational skills.

Our offer:
You will have the opportunity to channel your dedication and energy into an exciting and ambitious task, with high levels of responsibility and free space for realising your own ideas. A flat hierarchy as well as an inspirational, creative team await you. We offer a long-term career perspective, an attractive office location in Berlin-Kreuzberg with regular trips to Asia, Africa or South America (max. 40% of working time). We look forward to receiving your detailed application, including letters of reference, desired start date and salary expectations: Protected content .
