Welcome in our team. Let’s join the move and make more impact together.
A better world starts with building better communities.
Make social impact by bringing communities together and create a future for newcomers. We do this by transforming refugee hotspots into communities that are safe, sustainable, healing and enabling. From Camp to CampUs.
MOTG is founded in 2015 at Lesvos Greece as a reaction to the European refugee crisis. At the core of our mission stands our Camp to CampUs approach. Following that approach, we build a community, together with (camp) residents. Not for them, but with them. With this approach we stimulate social participation of newcomers and sustainably facilitate social & local integration within a community.
Creating social impact. It’s all about people first, unlocking potential creating perspective and helping newcomers to move forward by making Camp to CampUs the norm for building communities. We envision a global Movement where people, organizations and governing bodies join forces to turn this approach into the global standard.
We work with small core teams that are enriched with community volunteers (residents from the camps) and visiting volunteers (international volunteers). Currently we are active in 6 different countries. In this role you will be responsible for the ins and outs of the Amsterdam office and a member of the Movement management team. The management team consists of the Head of Change, the Head of Operations and the Head of Support Team. As a team we strongly believe in the value of working independently, with lots of freedom to take initiative, a can-do mentality and an entrepreneurial culture. Nothing is impossible. We move fast. This is how we act and how we think.
The Head of Support Team leads our efforts, manages our office team, expands our reach, knows how to create impact from an office perspective and wants to be part of the movement. Responsibilities that you may expect in this function:
