Project leaders at Adam Helpt (Amsterdam)

Adam Helpt is a co-operation between Stichting Present Amsterdam, Serve the City Amsterdam and Burennetwerk Amsterdam. As individual organisations we remain busy all year long with connecting people in Amsterdam, each organisation in its own way. We want to initiate a movement where it is more natural for companies to pledge a commitment to Amsterdam and its inhabitants. In Amsterdam there are many people and social organisations that help those in need and/or those who deserve more personal attention. We know these people and organisations and want to offer companies the opportunity to meet these people to help where it is needed.

We organise meaningful projects for companies. We work on a proposal-oriented basis, meaning every project is unique. This could be thought of in terms of a social project: where volunteers and the residents of a nursing home organise a high tea; or a practical project where volunteers restore a house for a family in need. The meeting of volunteers and the target audience plays a central part in the volunteer projects.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and driven volunteer to take the role of Project Leader.

Job description:

  • Available during the time of the visit to the project;
  • You contribute to the organization and co-ordination of the project;
  • You are responsible for leading volunteers during the project;
  • You ensure that the aim of the project has been achieved;
  • You are the contact person between the two parties;
  • You make and send the project descriptions.

What we ask from you:

  • You have good communication and organizational skills;
  • You enjoy working with various groups of volunteers;
  • You enjoy leading projects in different locations;
  • You are good at keeping oversight (or a project);
  • You are patient and can deal well with stress;
  • You can work well in a team, but you can also think and work independently;
  • You are flexible enough to work across the whole of Amsterdam;
  • You are a minimum of 18 years old;
  • You live in Amsterdam or its surroundings.

What we offer you:

We offer you a varied and informative job with a young and enthusiastic team. We are open for new ideas and offer you the opportunity for you to undertake your personal self-development. Do you love a lot of freedom, responsibility and alternating work and are you flexible to get involved across Amsterdam? Then we’re looking for you!
