Join a group of crazies who are absolutely passionate about changing the world.
Do people describe you as a grammar nazi? Do you cringe when you see a
misplaced apostrophe? Do you have crazy good research skills that can translate into stunning and
impactful copy? Read on, friend. Read on. You may just be the word whiz and research ninja
we’re looking for.
Write CSR funding proposals and applications. We don’t want flowery speeches. We need factual data that is presented in a compelling narrative.
Yeah, we know you like words. Like a lot. But you also have to manage the proposal submission process. Which means, developing a proposal calendar of companies who are granting CSR funds and submitting proposals on time.
Write impact reports (Annual & Quarterly) for individual donors and corporate partners. People want to see that their money is being spent on something worthwhile.
Responsible for researching, collecting data from the program team, and compiling program reports. The job involves co-ordinating with others to get as much data and stories, you can’t disappear to a cabin in the woods and write your narratives.
Great writing skills. Like, obvious, right!
Outstanding grammar skills. Its one of those thing’s that is Non-negotiabel. See what we did their? Did you spot all grammar errors in those sentences?
It’s not enough to say you’re a people person. You kinda have to be one to work with multiple teams and different personalities.
Good writers think. Great writers think. You need to think critically and present data in a compelling and accurate way.
Good organizational skills (Yeah, creatives still need structure) and be proactive (at U&I we believe in chasing goals, not people).
*APPLICANTS ARE REQUESTED TO SUBMIT A PORTFOLIO ALONG WITH THEIR RESUME
If you are a qualified teacher and love working with children (although we hope all qualified teachers think kids are awesome),
then check out this profile. It’s for a teacher, a leader, a planner, and an all-round nice guy.
Network. Network. Network. And we’re not talking about the high-powered luncheon type schmoozing. You’ll have to contact NGO’s and understand their needs. And corporates and their needs. And put the two together to see how to engage companies in social impact projects.
Roll up your sleeves. Yeah, we all like “ideating” in cushy armchairs. But this job is also about implementing projects on the ground.
Be a troubleshooting guru and a planning pundit. You’ll have to schedule, assign, arrange and organise a whole host of moving parts for projects. And if that falls through, you’ll have to ditch the plan and roll with the punches. Ninja flexibility skills required.
For volunteer engagement events, you’ll be the point person. The go-to guy/gal. The one that EVERYONE looks to for direction, answers and, of course, the fun quotient. No pressure there.
Oh, and the main thing: every event must create impact. Like we said, no pressure.
Quick Note: All job openings at U&I are presently in Bangalore and are full time (40+ hours per week), paid positions for graduates.
If you are still studying, please consider volunteering or interning with U&I.
