Head of Social Sustainability for Engineers Without Borders Sweden

EWB-SWE is now reaching out for a person interested in taking on the challenge of leading the social sustainability activities in the sustainability quality management of EWB-SWE. Maybe you are a student in the later part of your studies in a related field, a sustainability manager in an organisation and/or have substantial experience of managing activities towards reaching improved social sustainability?

The activity field is broad and will involve management of the social sustainability aspect in the overall management of the organisation, from managing and developing sustainability criteria for staff to analysis and guidance in our activity focus on social sustainability in international projects carried out by EWB-SWE. You will lead the tasks from a newly found Sustainability Council in EWB-SWE in cooperation with a group of collaborators with expertise in e.g. environment & climate issues and risk management.

Who do we search for? Are you interested in and/or have experience of analysing and elaborating on how to increase social sustainability and feel great when taking on tasks related to creative problem solving? Do you communicate with ease to your audience, are passionate in performance and have experience of performing toward deadlines? Are you further carrying knowledge related to social sustainability and/or sustainability management or similar? Do you feel comfortable in using an inclusive approach with openness toward multiple inputs but also with the decisiveness to make things move forward, in your leadership role? If YES, you are most likely the person we search for.

When shall the engagement be performed?  This is a remotely based voluntary engagement and it can start as soon as possible and latest before the end of November 2020. All activities and material involved and elaborated in the activities needs to be performed in English.

This is accomplished by assisting students with their studies, acting as role-models, and showing a non-conventional perspective on science, technology and engineering.
