What You Should Have
A 2-year Diploma or upto two years field experience in data collection in lieu of a diploma.
Tech-savvy: comfortable using smartphones, tablets, emails and able to manoeuvre through mobile IT systems/applications
Strong observational and record-keeping skills, detailed and keen to generate high-quality data (willing to clearly indicate when something is not being done correctly)
Impartial – Able to “stand his/her ground” and not be convinced by any party (e.g. Head Teachers, teachers) to alter the audit findings/information.
Highly flexible to dynamic work requirements and deliverables including willingness to travel and relocate within the country when required as per job requirements
Physically capable and comfortable with working long hours at the field including visiting remote locations and exposure to seasonal outdoor conditions.
Mature and able to work independently and effectively – supervision will largely be done from the Support Office while you operate in the field.
Malleable learner that’s able to work under pressure and stringent deadlines
Excellent interpersonal, organisation and communication skills – both oral and written
Problem solving and solution seeking skills will be essential along with a “can-do” attitude
A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, NewGlobe works in often fragile, sometimes volatile low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
A relentless advocate –The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience,
A malleable learner –You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
A data-driven decision-maker – When making decisions, you don’t rely on your intuition alone. You collect data, you analyze it and make decisions with clear justifications.
A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way, and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder, and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
