Staff Opportunities

Please consider working with Home Leone in either the UK or Sierra Leone.  If something sparks your interest then please ring Nigel Hyde +44 7961 576769 or e mail nigel.hyde@homeleone.org.  If you have a CV and could set out your interest, together with any questions and contact details we will get back to you.

At this stage we do not have funding and ask that you work on a self-funding basis as we give of ourselves to serve some of the worlds’ poorest.

There are some roles we need ASAP.  However, when building a village, whatever you can offer may be of help, so please do get in touch.  The core jobs we need to fulfil are listed below.  If you then find something of interest, scroll down for more detail.

Sierra Leone

Director of Education

This is a great opportunity, especially for (possibly) a retiring senior teacher with a passion to use their skills to help the poorest.  We are building 3 schools in Sierra Leone. After detailed local consultation, the schools are designed and include a primary, a secondary and a vocational training school.  BuildAid, a Norwegian charity) has committed to building the first 4 classrooms and we hope to see the primary school open in Easter 2018

We need someone with appropriate experience to build the curriculum (formal and informal), assist with design, liaise with government and select/work with partners as we seek funding and work with those already delivering quality education in country.

Business People

We have a range of small and larger businesses that we are establishing to make the project sustainable.  We need someone who simply has business acumen to get these established and running.  Core business plans are written and we may seek investment and was well philanthropic involvement.  The initial businesses include, a block making factory, water bagging plant, a garage, a transport business and wood kiln treatment works.

Builders/Plumbers/Carpenters/DIY lovers

The expansion of our building program is coming and we have opportunities beyond the village to build low cost homes.  There are few in the country with the basic skills we need to lead and train on the projects.  You may be able to come for short or longer times.

Accountant

Financial transparency and managing money in a largely cash society requires skill and logic.  We have good systems that need developing and liaising with government departments on a range of issues from building permits and tax to producing regular management information across a range of industries is really interesting.

United Kingdom Based

Procurement Manager

We have a wonderful opportunity to collect gifts in kind and purchase vital supplies, bring all together and then containerise and ship.  We are building a wonderful network of suppliers and relationships of people who want to help.  We have a strong base in the Luton area but want to build on this work in other parts of the country so it may not matter where you are based.

Communications Manager

We have many of the core communication platforms in place; website, Facebook, Twitter and develop our significant adwords opportunity.  At present, this can also be done whilst doing another job.

PA to Chief Executive

There are many administrative tasks that Nigel needs help with, from gift aid to assisting at meetings.  This could be part time and ideally based in the Southampton area.

Trust Fund Raisers

We need more funds to fulfil our vision and calling.  If you could help us raise money, we have a good base and systems and can work with you experienced or learning.
