It’s what this nation was built on.
It’s the foundation for stories that tug at our hearts and pull us closer to lend help.
It’s also the enabler for all the social organisations out there to do the amazing work they do, day in and day out.
It’s also what these organisations lack.
We spoke to some university students to understand what they think about the social sector.
What do you think about a career in the social sector?
“You get the chance to create an impact on the lives of others on a day-to-day basis.”
“Unlike the corporate world that seems to suck the soul from many of my friends.”
Would you actually work in the social sector?
“I did consider it before, but it seems like a career-killing move.”
“I heard that they don’t pay very well and the hours are really long.”
“Not sure what skills they need.”
The truth is: Misconceptions about the social sector is hurting the organisations, and holding them back from doing the work that impacts thousands of beneficiaries.
Little wonder, considering what job ads look like today. 500-word job descriptions. Paragraph after paragraph of why we are a “different place to work” or how we are “hiring good team players”.
TalentTribe is on a mission to re-brand the social service sector, and help these organisations hire the people that keeps them moving forward.
Leveraging visual media and engaging content to help social organisations better engage and attract talent. Change perceptions of what working in social really is like by seeing for yourself.
We have worked with Ashoka and Dialogue In The Dark (social enterprise supporting the blind community). This is a sample of our first feature of a social organisation. Help us reach out to more social organisations and help them with their talent challenges.
Our campaign target is $10,000 and Singtel has kindly offered to MATCH the amount you donate! For every dollar you give, your contribution DOUBLES. Please join us in enabling social organisations to multiply their impact – to help them hire incredible, invaluable heroes that can in turn touch the lives of thousands others.
Please help us share this campaign with family and friends across your networks on Facebook and Whatsapp!
