About Hatua Likoni:
Hatua Likoni is a community organization that prepares youth to thrive in Kenya’s workforce by providing promising, low-income students with access to the education, career guidance and professional networks they need to contribute to and benefit from Kenya’s growing economy.
Our committed team of ten serves over 400 students enrolled in high school and university. We are proud about our 95% graduation rate from secondary school and 90% transition rate to University. To date 34 Hatua students have graduated from university. Within one year of graduation 100% of our alumni are already working, earning 4x the average income of youth who have not completed their education.
We are currently opening our 2nd office, starting our expansion journey across Mombasa to eventually work with 1,600 students annually!
About the role
We provide access to education, but completing a university degree doesn’t always guarantee that students successfully transition into the workplace. As the University Career Guidance Coordinator, you will support our alumni in securing employment opportunities in industries they are interested in, and have been trained to work in. This includes providing personalized coaching to support the job search process of individuals, as well as ensuring career discovery skills are part of all our programs. By positioning Hatua Likoni alumni as a high quality talent pool for employers across the country, you will help build a large, strong and diverse network of companies eager to hire them.
Over the years, you will also build a thriving network of alumni, who succeed in their careers, life and communities, and who are deeply committed to Hatua Likoni and give back to future generations of sponsored youth in Mombasa.
Your responsibilities will include:
Ensure 100% of Hatua alumni transition into jobs relevant to their career
Curating professional industry groups which allow the students broader perspectives:
Helping to oversee the initiation and growth of the alumni network
General Program Management
