Description and Impact

We are a social enterprise that cares about and for women coming out of exploitation, and human trafficking. We have employed over 130 women and has served thousands through our community outreach services. We help women experience freedom, establish independence, and develop careers through life skills and specialized vocational training such as design, photography, and accounting.

We are looking for an inventory specialist to develop an official inventory strategy that will help us audit and monitor our stock across three different warehouses. 


Help our management team analyze our current inventory system then develop a strong and sustainable long-term inventory strategy that will work across our three branches in two different countries.  

With the development of a sustainable inventory strategy, you will help a mid-sized social enterprise expand over the course of the next five year to hire more women who are leaving exploitation and trafficking. You will work directly with our Founder and CEO, leadership team and inventory manager, who is in our after-care program.
