O pozici

Job Description: Head of Project Strive Czechia, Senior Technical Lead and Program Manager

CARE’s Head of Strive Czechia is a new position that will help to unlock the power of Micro and Small entrepreneurs (MSEs) in the Czech Republic. This effort aims to improve digitalize and grow over 250,000 MSEs by connecting entrepreneurs, especially women, with a one-stop shop of digital resources and mentoring, while developing a campaign to build demand and demystify digital resources; improving access to financial services; and providing critical support services. Leveraging partners, CARE will be the coalition builder to deliver these services through local partners such as FSPs (Financial services providers), business development services providers, marketing firms, and the government. In addition, the effort will build an integrated ecosystem of stakeholders that will support MSEs in the Czech Republic through a learning network and by bringing visibility to industry-level and MSE-level data, learning, and sharing.

In three years, the complex project will contribute to the digitalization and development of more than 250,000 MSEs, deeply support 42,500 micro and small businesses and 10,000 Ukrainian refugees and will work to build the capacity of an ecosystem of local partners in the Czech Republic that will support MSEs – including the more vulnerable and underrepresented – to become digital, stay financially resilient and grow. The project also aims to influence government priorities around supporting the digitalization of MSEs.

The project approach (starting summer 2022 in CZ) has three goals:

1. Build demand for – and simplify the path to – MSE digitalization. Strive Czechia will reach more than 250,000 entrepreneurs with a first-of-its-kind digital one-stop shop targeted at all micro and small businesses and a digitalization campaign. The objective of the one-stop shop will be to provide a seamless and integrated journey to identify MSEs' needs through an AI-driven self-assessment that will tailor the next step in the journey accordingly - either directing MSEs to more advice, information, mentoring or other products and services (such as loans). Demand for this one-stop shop will be driven through a large-scale digitalization campaign that will focus messaging on the value of digital tools and resources for MSEs, testimonials of success stories, easy ways to digitalize their business, and how to access support services - especially through the one-stop shop.

2. Increase access to finance and a range of critical support services to 42,500 underserved entrepreneurs, focusing on MSEs owned or led by women or Ukrainian refugees. Strive Czechia will engage with two to three financial service providers (FSPs) as well as peer groups and other partners to provide a range of critical support services (mentoring, coaching, digital capabilities, hard skills and soft skills). Recognizing that female entrepreneurs represent one of the most powerful groups of entrepreneurs – and yet also one of the most marginalized – at least 40% of Strive Czechia's reach will be women. Given the influx of Ukrainian refugees to the Czech Republic, the project will work with existing local partners to directly support at least 10,000 Ukrainian refugees and Ukrainian-led Czech solopreneurs/MSEs to succeed on the Czech market and gain economic independence.

3. Strengthen the Czech entrepreneurial support system. Central to Strive Czechia is CARE’s commitment to ensure that the program’s impact extends far beyond our direct reach by sustained capacity building of local implementation partners. Strive Czechia will create a Strive Learning network for amplified messaging of program results and learnings, hosting and attending convenings in-country and on a European Union scale, collecting and sharing industry and impact data, influencing industry players and relevant national and EU institutional funding bodies, and key stakeholders. Strive Czechia also will share stories of the partnership, findings and results via in-country and EU-based media. We will partner with a range of local providers, including FSPs, business accelerators, government, civil society and mobile networks, to increase entrepreneur access to digital resources, finance and critical support services and support government digitalization strategy.

Responsibilities:

This role will require a combination of technical expertise, project management and leadership, and excellent communication, research, and knowledge management skills. The first is providing technical assistance to the in-country team to ensure program quality and consistency is high and ensuring that products are designed with the user in mind, leveraging research exercises to turn insight into design changes. Next, the position will be responsible for ensuring that team hire are in place, partnerships are secured, and all deliverables are delivered on time. Third, this position will be key to ensuring that coordination is happening among stakeholders, and that they are actively engaged in the learning network. Fourth, the position will be responsible for capturing and communicating key learnings for CARE and the industry on best practices learned through this initial effort. Finally, this role will be responsible for regular communication and reporting to the funding client on progress toward short term and long term goals of this effort. In all cases, the position will require close coordination, communication, and rapport-building with the CARE USA team.
