Project Details


Description and Impact

Youth unemployment rates are hitting record highs around the world. Educational and training opportunities are scarce, and access to stable jobs can be even more limited. Though these challenges feel entrenched, the digital economy provides new pathways for disenfranchised youth to access high-quality education and stable employment. Our model transforms the way previously marginalized populations can access jobs in the digital economy, and currently provides ongoing training and rich employment to over 600 youth in India.

In order to continue expanding our impact and growing our model, we are looking for keen business minds who have a devotion to not only business acumen but social impact. We’re looking for someone to play a role in continuing to refine our business strategy by conducting a thorough and actionable competitive analysis of us and our competitors. This analysis could inform what kinds of clients we approach, and the ways we innovate in our sales, technology and service delivery processes.

We’re looking for an experteer who:

  • Knows the ins and outs of business strategy
  • Has experience in management consulting, strategy, or business development
  • Knows how to conduct thorough research, using a variety of methods
  • Is an excellent problem solver and a self-starter
  • Will surprise us!

Day-to-day work will be conducted in our main offices in Kolkata, India, with trips to our delivery centers in surrounding areas as-needed. 

Remote work is also a possibility.

Great for people with consulting and strategic skills! Interested but not the right length? Like our organization and have an idea how your skills can help us? Message us at: match@movingworlds.org

Deliverables

This project will be a success when we have new insights not only on the state of our business as it relates to our competitors’, but we also have ideas for how this will impact our business development strategy and more.

As a deliverable, we're looking for a thorough report that explores the below:

  • Identification of key competitors
  • Analysis of competitor strengths and weaknesses
  • Analysis of our business model as compared to competitors
  • Sectors and verticals for growth
  • Recommendations for the future, based upon market opportunities

We’re looking for a thorough document that explores opportunities for growth, potential challenges, and teaches our team something new.

A unique experience abroad: Kolkata is a city unlike any other. Vestiges from its time as the capital of the British India intermingle with new construction, while India's oldest metro system snakes underground. Glimpses of village life are still visible in various neighborhoods in Kolkata, where the rules of time don't seem to apply. 

Virtual

This project accepts applications for virtual experteers.
