Duties & Responsibilities
The Entrepreneurship specialist will be supporting the conduction of market assessment in Nangarhar province and facilitate job placement in waged employment or support self-employment start-up to training graduates to not less than 480 job-seekers graduated from vocational trainings.
Targeting the Eastern province of Nangarhar ACTED will support employment-creation by providing vocational trainings to returnees and host communities in the wake of the massive and ongoing return of Afghan people from Pakistan. The memorandum of Understanding that allows Afghan refugees to stay in Pakistan expires at the end of 2018. In consequence a potentially large-scale influx of returnees is expected. Returnees experience high levels of socio-economic vulnerability including restricted access to basic services and employment opportunities. Nangarhar Province already hosts the single largest returnee community in Afghanistan. The existing strain on public service delivery and livelihoods potential in Nangarhar will be exacerbated by a sudden influx of returnees from neighboring Pakistan which will result in increased hardship for both returnees and receiving communities.
For the duration of 11 months the project focuses on two major goals:
Provide Returnees and other target populations’ with vocational skills and employability through VT course
Facilitate placement in waged employment or support self-employment start-up to training graduates.
Planning coordination and management:
in cooperation with Project Manager/Team Leader prepare weekly and monthly work plans including detailed training plans
Conduction of market assessment and confirmation of training curricula
Conduction of a market and labour assessment to identify main gaps and skills required by the local market
Facilitate job placement or self-employment start-up for training graduates.
provide job-placement or self-employment start-up support to all graduates of the vocational training programme.
Coordinate with AME teams on preparing pre and post KAP surveys
