Plein-Temps (CDI) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) EFE-Tunisia

EFE Foundation – Posted by Khaled KOUBAA Gouvernorat de Tunis, Tunis, Tunisie

Job Description

EFE Background
The Education for Employment Foundation (EFE) believes that when young people have jobs and the hope of building a future, they help lay the foundation for prosperous and secure societies.  Now expanding to Tunisia, EFE has a network of local nonprofits operating across the Middle East and North Africa (Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Yemen).
EFE’s mission is to provide economic opportunities for youth, enabling them to transform their lives through productive, independent livelihoods.  Two elements distinguish EFE: 1) We are a network of locally-run non-profits led by a national board of directors (mainly from the private sector) and staff, and 2) We complete the circle beyond training to place graduates in jobs or connect them to entrepreneurship support, and then to provide ongoing learning and civic engagement opportunities.

About the Role
As EFE expands to Tunisia, the CEO will coordinate closely with the EFE-Global team to develop overall strategy, establish the non-profit organization in Tunisia, and lay the foundation for EFE-Tunisia’s first youth employment and entrepreneurship projects in Tunisia.
