About Hatua Network

Link to our website: www.hatuanetwork.org

In Kenya, and across the continent, todayโ€™s youth bulge is a unique opportunity for economic growth and development. Hatua Network is a community organization working to simultaneously address the needs of youth and employers, thereby strengthening the supply and demand sides of Mombasaโ€™s employment market.

We do so by providing top performing students from low income families with scholarships, mentoring, career guidance and access to career opportunities. These programs enable youth to develop the character, values, skills and networks they need to successfully contribute to and benefit from Kenyaโ€™s growing economy.

Our transformative, interlocking programs support youth over a period of 10 years, through high-school mentoring focused on soft skill, leadership development programs for secondary graduates, one-on-one professional career coaching for university students, and career linkages and workplace skills for our tertiary graduates. Throughout we work closely with the private sector to source for mentors and career opportunities for our youth, while ensuring our programs prepare youth with the skills and character traits employers seek.

To date we are serving 560 young people, including 470 of whom we are currently sponsoring and mentoring through secondary and tertiary education, and 90 who have completed college or university. Of those who graduated more than 1 year ago 93% are working, earning an average income that is 3X the combined average income of their parents. This is a total transformation from poverty to professional careers.

About the role

We provide access to education, but completing a university degree doesnโ€™t always guarantee that students successfully transition into the workplace. As the Employer Partnerships and Alumni Coordinator, you will support our alumni in securing employment opportunities in industries they are interested in, and have been trained to work in. You will cultivate relationships and referral opportunities with employers and by positioning Hatua Network 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. You will also supervise career coaching for alumni by managing the alumni officer to ensure they have the job search skills to succeed in the application process.

Over the years, you will help build a thriving network of alumni, who succeed in their careers, life and communities, and who are deeply committed to Hatua Network and give back to future generations of youth.
