The Social Programs team is committed to helping a wide variety of populations access high-quality job training, including the unemployed, people with disabilities, refugees, and inmates.
Our Programs focus on developing job skills that are in high demand within the digital economy as well as ensuring that trainees are successfully placed in the workforce. They work closely with government bodies, local authorities, and private organizations, all of which play a vital role in supporting this objective.
What kind of roles can you see in this team?
Public Program Managers: They are responsible for sourcing opportunities for new social programs, designing proposals to public or private financing bodies (Pôle emploi, Regions, foundations, etc.), and following the social programs along with the Student team.
Director, Regional Social Programs: This role focuses on building a strong and positive image of OpenClassrooms by local authorities and partners as well as sourcing local social programs, helping the team to close them, and overseeing their implementation.
