Group Leader for the integration project E2E Uppsala

Looking to make a real difference for asylum seekers in Sweden? Do you want to join the journey to drastically improve the integration of newly arrived academics in Sweden? Do you want to use your planning and coordination skills to help Engineer to Engineer create events? Then you've come to the right place! 

Engineers Without Borders’ integration project Engineer to Engineer (E2E) in Uppsala is run by ~25 volunteers (both students and working professionals). Together we try to create a platform where asylum seekers and newly arrived can meet established companies. It is our ambition that this will accelerate their transition into the industry.

Over the last year we have quadrupled the number of volunteers and received more funding which means we have the resources to realize events that were not possible in the past. However, with increased resources also comes increased demand for effective planning and management, especially since we collaborate heavily with companies. Currently we are looking for someone to fill the role as Group Leader for at least the upcoming six months.
