Positions with World Unite!
 

Working with World Unite!

 
Our worldwide World Unite! team currently consists of 58 key team members (58% female and 42% male) of 20 different nationalities, speaking a total of 25 different languages.
 
We have an extremely low employee turnover - almost all team members who have decided to work with us have been staying with us so far. Therefore most vacant positions are new positions resulting from the growth of our organisation. As they are new position, it is often necessary for new team members "to grow into the role" and to define their exact responsibilities in interaction with the other team members - taking into consideration everyone's strenghts and interests. As opposed to larger organisations, we don't have strong hierarchies and very strict departmental separations of tasks and duties, and you should enjoy working in a fast-paced, "start up" work environment, helping out your colleagues where needed. Even though we are in our 13th year of operations and have become a relevant player in our sector, we have maintained our youthful energy, which is fostering innovation and providing space for professional and personal growth of our team members.

>>Full-time position - Program coordinator and supporting international volunteers in Zanzibar

 
Available from: immediately/January 2020
 

Your role would be to work at a beach location in Zanzibar as a coordinator of program activities related to environmental conservation and to provide support to foreign volunteers. You will be the link between foreign volunteers and our local partnering organisations, trying to make sure that all stakeholders feel equally involved and happy about how the program is carried out.

You should feel comfortable to provide customer service, even dealing with young and travel-inexperienced participants. You should be able to understand their concerns and support them during their learning process.

You will also be in charge to manage an 18 bed volunteer accommodation (check-ins, check-outs, cleanliness, maintenance, quality standards of services delivered, e.g. food), working with a small local team and to oversee some construction works of a near building which is currently under construction.

This job requires a high level of people skills, intercultural skills and the ability to understand and bring together a wide array of different interests and positions.

A professional background in social work, education, psychology, intercultural communication, or possibly (marine) biology, ecology, development work and other related subjects is of advantage, but not an absolute must.

You should be able to clearly communicate in English with people who are non-native speakers (e.g. volunteers from Germany, Denmark, France) and who only have a very basic level of English (e.g. farmers from the villages). Skills of the Swahili language are of big advantage, but not an absolute necessity.

>> German language teacher in Cochin/India

 
Available from: immediately 
 
This position is with our partner language school in Fort Cochin/India that is looking for a teacher of German as a foreign language.
 
The institute offers courses at A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 levels in German (From beginners to effective operational proficiency level). It prepares candidates for the Goethe and OSD exams. The institute provides only small group and one to one classes to ensure thorough learning and preparation for the exam, ranging from 5 to 10 students. The learning process, therefore, is intensive, progress rather fast and regular class attendance by all learners a must. At present there are 4 teachers from Germany at the institute.
 
The Language Institute gives primary importance to application of the living language and learners are immersed in the language as used by native speakers. In the initial stage, the main focus is on sounds and structures; more comprehensive vocabulary building only sets in after learners have come to grips with the basic principles of the language.
 
Studying a language is seen an active process that implies the student's involvement in all four competencies - reading, writing, listening and speaking. The institute uses state-of-the-art teaching methods and materials to make sure that the students become self-reliant learners and can independently develop their skills once they graduate from the institute.
 
The institute is looking for candidates who can teach German at the A-Levels. English skills are an advantage, as in the institute elementary German is mainly taught in English. You will be guided and assisted by experienced teachers. The institute offers safe accommodation and a reasonable stipend for Indian standards to cover your living expenses. You should be willing to stay for one year. 50% of a two way flight ticket can also be paid as part of the offer.
 
Besides German, French is offered at levels A1, A2 and B1 at the language institute. Dutch is offered at A1 level.
